The Parking Area
Bioessence’s West Ave. branch in Quezon City
You can leave your car park in front of the clinic. There is a guard on duty for the security of your vehicle. However, call the clinic prior to your visit to ensure that there is enough space for parking.
The Waiting Area
The 22-year old beauty clinic chain that started operations with only a 3-bed clinic in Davao City opened a branch in Quezon City. The said branch is located at West Avenue, accessible to customers who are coming from the northern side of Metro Manila.
Bioessence’s reception area featuring their accommodating estheticians
The clinic is a two-storey building with an Italian-designed interior and a combination of brown and beige accent walls and furniture, dramatic lighting, and relaxing scent perfect for a calm and serene atmosphere. There is a total of 18 rooms for facial treatment and 4 rooms for sauna.
The waiting area with some refreshments to choose from
I was welcomed by courteous greetings and pleasant chats by the receptionist and pleased with refreshments before my treatment. My esthetician gave me a robe. She left me for a few moments in the room so I could change my clothes before we started the session.
The Actual Session
A basic facial treatment should include steaming, exfoliating, and extracting. Bioessence’s Oxygen Celebrity Facial, which is the one I had, is a combination of facial plus oxygen serum and mask.
The robe I wore in preparation for the treatment.
My esthetician gave me a preliminary relaxing massage to my head, shoulder, and chest. She cleansed my face using creams and scrubs in circular strokes to set my skin and relax my facial muscles. A thin vapor of warm steam was put to my face to help soften up any whiteheads or blackheads to be removed. The procedure was so relaxing and took for about 10 minutes.
Next, comes the extraction (or removal of whiteheads and blackheads) which is normally a bit painful but done in a lighter and comfortable way by my esthetician. After the pricking, my esthetician vacuumed my face to remove more dirt and excess oils out of my face. Then, to improve the appearance of my pores, she used a laser wand, diamond peeling, and a soothing cold mask. I appreciate that my esthetician covered my eyes with moist cloth during the laser session.
After the entire basic facial, my esthetician applied the oxygen serum which according to her helps the skin keep its firmness and correct uneven fine lines. The serum assists the skin in rebuilding itself faster. This procedure is painless and I felt no harsh peeling which usually happens when using chemicals on skin.
Taking a cold refreshment after the session!
My esthetician was checking on me often and explaining the procedure ensuring that I was aware and comfortable during the session. She instructed me to refrain from washing my face for the next 6 hours. Lastly, let me tell you that the back massage really completed my experience with Bioessence!
The whole session lasted for almost 2 hours.
