Got an awesome body scrub with my girlfriends at Dermcare. Friendly staff plus good ambiance.

It was my first time to try their service and they pampered us well. They gave us the VIP room which i think is only good for two, but since we were 3 girls that time. They arranged the room in order to fit 3 beds for us. It was very relaxing and the staff really did well. Moreover, it is very accommodating since it's located in SM Baguio.

Will definitely come back for another spa time! 128076

I got this voucher for a discounted Diamond Peel session way back in January or so. Instead of 700 Pesos, you'll only pay 299 for a session. I really love going on Diamond Peels as it renews your skin significantly. And so, I chose the SM Baguio branch to go to. And I almost forgoten that I had a voucher left. Lucky me, it would have expired the next day.

It was quite troublesome to find their Baguio branch. FYI my friends, it's at the 2nd floor Breezeway on the left. Past Teriyaki Boy and Shabu Shabu. Although it was hard to find, I like the location as it is far away from the noise.

So the store surprised me as it is quite classy compared to the other branches I've been to. Here are a few snaps.

Now let's go to the Diamond Peel. It is an hour and a half long process. I added a Collagen mask so that's 10 minutes more. I'll share with you the step by step procedure on how it's done and what it's for.

Step 1: Cleanse and Moisturize
Initially, they ask you to wash your face with their own facial wash in a cute pink pump. Rolls of face towels are neatly placed in the basket beside the sink. I wish I have a picture of how nice and neat everything looks but photos aren't allowed inside. It was odd being watched by people as I washed my face. Then they let you lie down on the recliner and apply moisturizer and cover your eyes with moist tissue to prevent your sensitive skin around the eyes from drying up.

Step 2: Steam and Prick
Generally, a diamond peel is like a facial. So the first step is steaming your face to open up the pores and get it ready for pricking.

Pricking means getting rid of your ripe pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. Blackheads are deep seated dirt while whiteheads are the crust that covers the blackheads. This process may take from 15-30 minutes depending on how much they need to remove. They can't remove everything though like unripen pimples as it will cause infection.

Step 3: Suction and Laser
A small tube with medium suction is used to suck out remaining dirt from your face. Then a glass tool that has laser light is massaged on your face. This ideally promotes circulation as it zaps your capillaries and veins on your face. It doesn't hurt but you kind of feel a litttle static effect.

Step 4: Heat Hammer
The heat hammer is a smooth circular metal tool that is a bit hot. It is used go iron your face to open the pores again. The heat is tolerable. Kind of like a hot towel. It's comforting, really!

Step 5: Diamond Peel Scrubbing and Suction
This is the haitus of the process. It is called Diamond peel because the tool has a diamond tip. Well it should be a real diamond, which explains why it is so expensive. They use the tool to srub away dirt, blackheads and whiteheads and your dead skin cells off your face and combine it with a strong suction to vacuum it all away. If you are sensitive, it may hurt. But for most people, it is tolerable. Beauty is pain.

Additional step:
Mask. If you had opted for a mask, this is applied after the diamond peel process. Logic is, your skin absorbs these more since the skin is new and pores are open. Dermcare only has the Kojic mask and Collagen mask. Although some beauty centers would have Vitamin packs as well.

Step 6: Cold Hammer and cream
Last stage is massaging your face with the same tool as before but this time it is cold. Like a cold bottle of water. It closes your pores. Then they apply moisturizing cream and acortisone cream to combat redness. And there you have it! They also offer a complimentary back massage to end the not so relaxing process.

Now, if you're planning to get a Diamond peel, you have to consider the pros and cons. Lemme help you out.

Benefits

Produces collagen. The most significant benefit you will experience from this skin treatment is the marked improvement of your skin after a session. First, it is a proven way to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is an important substance that makes your skin elastic and firm, and prevents the formation of fine lines.
Minimizes scars. The diamond peel process will also minimize the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and pigmentations.
Removes blackheads. The pores are also tightened and blackheads will be removed.
Improves skin conditions. It will also prevent skin from being oily, leaving it clear, smooth and young-looking.
Indeed, diamond peel sessions can make significant changes in one’s skin.

Personally, my skin felt super soft like a baby's bum when I came out!

Risks

The risks of this treatment are minimal and usually occurs when the procedure is carried by an inexperienced dermatologist. You'll likely only experience minor side effects, such as:

Dryness
Itchiness
Sensitivity to the sun
Although, these will all go away in a matter of days.

I did develop a pimple on my nose two days after... :(
