Acne Control Facial at Flawless

I have to be honest that I don't have perfect skin... and that frustrates me a lot. :(
I need to go to a facial center at least 3 times a year as I often get acne break outs...
I have tried getting facials at other facial centers, but it was my first time to try a service at Flawless.

Flawless is a famous aesthetic center here in the Philippines. Many famous celebrities endorse it and it really has a good reputation for making people become more beautiful.

Flawless - SM Megamall

I went to Flawless located on the 5th floor of SM Megamall in Pasig City. I went there around 11 am because I didn't want to go with a lot of people. I also needed to be there a little early just so I could take some photos.

Here are some of the services that they offer:

I asked the attendant if she could recommend the best service for my skin type, I have combination of oily and dry skin and my skin is really sensitive. She said I should get the Advanced Acne Control Facial. I originally wanted to consult their resident dermatologist, but the doctor doesn't come in until 1pm.
This is their clinic. What I like about it is that it's very cozy and the ambiance is really relaxing. Just the perfect atmosphere to get pampered.

And this is the doctor's clinic. I guess this is where you'll get under the knife treatments and surgeries? I don't know, I haven't tried such treatment before.

You can have your facial service done there at their common place or you can pay an extra Php100 if you want some privacy. I decided to have my facial experience a little private...
This is my attendant, Cathy. She was really nice.
I have gotten so many facials before from various clinics
and I have to say she's one of the nicest.

I actually liked that idea. An extra Php100 pesos is not to bad because it will keep you away from other people and also give you some privacy. I reckon that it's a good idea to have curtains cover you while you get your face swell to no end. lol.

One more thing that I like is this little compartment that you have under your bed.
This is where you can keep your things while you get beautified by them. And I liked that, too. It keeps your stuff and shopping bags safe and secure.

Before the facial, your attendant will wrap your hands in a hot compress and then in a really girly pink gloves. She will also massage your tired hands.

And then, it's time for steam. Your attendant will leave you for 10 minutes or so.

I didn't feel lonesome because someone was with me...

Richard Gutierrez.

I didn't take any photos during the actual facial because I was too busy crying. lol.
If you haven't experienced it yet, facials could get excruciating, especially if you have deep acne!

After she perforated my face, she then applied a really soothing green mask. According to my attendant, its called the Green Oxygenating Mask.

The mask will be left on the face for about 30 minutes... I thought it was perfect because I was able to nap.

And I don't know about you... But I was able to nap looking like this... :)

Finally, she came back and now it's time to remove the thing...

The thing peeled off as a whole. How cool is that?

After the treatment, my attendant gave me another relaxing shoulder and back massage which made me want to nap more...

I used two of the 10 gc's Flawless gave me.

It's normal for any skin to get sore and swollen after a facial so please don't mock my skin in this picture.. Trust me, it's 60% better looking in this picture than how it really was that day..

I really had a great experience at Flawless! My attendant, for one, was really nice and kind. She was also polite, which is really important every time I get a service at any clinic.

I want to thank Flawless for the gift certificates. I can't wait to finally be "Flawless".
