We’ve come a long way in the arena of beauty and wellness, and it only continues to grow and diversify as the years go by. Gone are the days when your beauty was defined by how thin you were or how light your skin was. Now, more than ever, we are taught to celebrate different kinds of beauty regardless of social norms. For Glow Skin Clinic, their ethos is grounded on the values of empowering both men and women, and working to help every individual embrace the skin they are in without needing to conform to trends. Through every process and procedure, they guide clients in their self-love journeys that are centered on the desire to contribute to the dialogue of loving one’s self and understanding that every body is unique and different in their own way.
Located in Uptown Mall, BGC, Taguig, the LIFESTYLE.INQ team paid a visit to Glow Skin Clinic to try out some of their most popular treatments. Namely the Onda Plus Coolwaves, Emsculpt Neo, and the Beverly Hills Glow Lift. Here’s how it went!
Onda Coolwaves Plus
What it is: The Onda Coolwaves™ Plus treatment is the only FDA approved device that reduces fat cells, treats cellulite, and tightens skin in a safe, effective, and non-invasive way. It penetrates deep into the fat tissue and reduces localized fat cells, while stimulating the production of new collagen — firming up the tissue with a regenerating action that lasts over time. With its tightening and smoothening effect on cellulite and loosened tissue, the device provides effective results instantaneously.
Who it’s for: The Onda Coolwaves™ Plus treatment is perfect for those looking to target problem areas that are often stubborn and difficult to target during workouts. It’s perfect for those who have just recently lost weight and are looking to tighten their skin while targeting residual fat at the same time!
“My arms have always been a problem area for me primarily because of genetics! No matter how often or how much I work out, the fat never really seemed to go away. It’s definitely caused great insecurity for me. However, after seeing Glow Skin Clinic’s Instagram posts featuring some before and after shots of their clients who tried out Onda Coolwaves™ Plus, i could see such a drastic results and knew I had to try it. Upon entering the clinic, I was briefed on the procedure and given a robe to change into. It wasn’t long until we started, and I felt so comfortable throughout the entire process! My aesthetician guided me through the whole thing and described each step she was doing. The procedure was painless and I saw instant results after! I felt so relieved to know that I didn’t have to be insecure about my arms anymore and I really can’t wait to pay another visit.”
What it is: the only non-invasive technology that simultaneously uses a unique combination of radiofrequency and HIFEM+ energies to eliminate fat cells and build muscle. 30 minutes of this treatment is equivalent to doing 20,000 crunches.
Who it’s for: The Emsculpt Neo is ideal for those looking to tone and tighten! The procedure does wonders for muscle building and also helps in body contouring, as well as reducing fat.
“For someone who isn’t naturally gifted in the “backend department”, the Emsculpt might just be your new best friend. If you’re too scared like me for any invasive procedures (BBLs are definitely a no-go for me!), this treatment can help you achieve a perkier and toner behind. The whole procedure only took 30 minutes, with you just laying down with the machine strapped on your target area causing muscle contractions that stimulate what is equivalent to 20,000 squats. My technician began the treatment at 10% power for me to try to see if I can handle the paint and bring it up to its maximum, and you best bet I went up to 100%. I wouldn’t say the sensation of your muscles contracting is painful, but it was also not the most comfortable thing either. It was definitely comparable to muscle cramps coming and going in waves. However, after a couple minutes I got used to the feeling and found it somewhat relaxing. After the procedure, my butt had a slight lift to it, which was noticeable when standing up! Overall, I would say I think this procedure would be even better when done several times alongside regularly working out your target area.”
What it is: The Beverly Hills Glow Lift is Glow Skin Clinic’s newest non-invasive age-defying facial that helps treat sagging skin and gives you an instant visible contoured lift.This skin lifting and tightening treatment uses radio frequency technology to improve skin laxity and stimulate collagen production- which lifts, contours, and smoothens skin.
Who it’s for: The Beverly Hills Glow Lift is perfect for those looking to give their skin much-needed TLC. It works wonders in contouring, soothing, and tightening the skin!
“One of my key problems nowadays is dryness, blemishes, and dull/tired looking skin caused by stress and chronic fatigue. Aesthetically speaking, I’ve always wanted a way to address the swelling I noticed around my neck, chin, and cheeks. Upon trying out the Beverly Hills Glow Lift, I felt instantly relaxed — and quite honestly — was asleep for almost the entire two hours of it. I was surprised at how many different products were used and how many layers of moisturizer were added on. A nice touch was that while the facial treatment was ongoing, I even got a neck and shoulder massage from the therapist which aided in lymphatic drainage. Towards the end of the treatment they used a machine that helps to tighten and lift the skin on the face. Immediately after treatment (AKA my much needed power nap) I already saw the difference in my skin! It was a healthier color and the swelling I had previously experienced was significantly less. Everything used was also really cold so it felt like my face was being soothed and toned. Even up to 5 days after my facial my skin still felt so plump and healthy, and was the smoothest and most hydrated it’s been in a while, even with my neglecting my daily skincare routine. Overall it is quite pricey, but i’ve never tried a facial that has worked as amazingly as this one!
