As a blogger, Shimmian Manila is a new name for me. I though that they were just an ordinary Spa or Wellness Center which renders the usual services like facials and acne-removal. But upon being invited to the opening of their new branch in SM South Mall I was proven wrong. I first had the opportunity to try their Relaxing Facial and then had a session of Diamond Peel in their Tomas Morato Branch .
The facial, first involved cleansing and a scrub which helped soften my dead skin as well as remove dirt caused by everyday pollution. I felt relaxed because the attendant wasn’t hasty and took time on cleaning my face, right after I was endorsed to the treatment area where Ms. Joyce initiated the Diamond Peel by checking my skin condition. She was very thorough on explaining what is Diamond Peel and how it will help my skin to be blemish free and the most vibrant ever. It was the micro-abrasion machine that has diamond bits on its probe that removes dead skin tissues on every session. She told me that to experience the most desirable effects, I had to have it done at least every two weeks. The peel though is not advisable if a person has breaks on the facial skin, and by breaks I meant: open wound, acne and the like. I had one erupted pimple that time and is very much guilty of scratching it, so Ms Joyce didn’t hover the probe on that area of my skin but instead she put on prophylactic topical antibiotic cream over it to make sure it will not get infected. After having the Diamond Peel done I felt relaxed and my skin felt supple even only one session I can see and feel the positive effects. I was educated though that I have to avoid water on my skin for at least six hours and then Ms. Joyce applied some Sun block on my face to avoid burns since technically the first layer of my skin was peeled off. After having this done I took the liberty of roaming around their Tomas Morato branch and was very much pleased with the interiors, the people and as a whole their service. Here are some pictures I took on my first visit in Shimmian Manila- Tomas Morato branch.
Just yesterday they opened a new branch at SM South Mall. The ribbon cutting took place at around lunch time. It was a very cozy branch which will cater all services similar to those available in their Ortigas, Green Hills, Quezon City and Pampanga branches. The couple who owns Shimmian Manila are:
There were a lot of celebrities that came who are part of the Shimmian Family and have been in the care of these good doctors. With them are other few who do their craft in line with the Shimmian Mission and Vision:
1. To bring to the Filipinos and foreign patients the quality of cosmetic surgery recently being offered in more advanced countries in the most affordable way.
2. To extend to medical doctors in the field of cosmetic surgery the advances on nasal augmentation by being a technology-sharing center.
As far as review I can speak for the Diamond Peel, facial cleansing and Radio Frequency of my arms, but their Center is known worldwide for the most advanced Rhinoplasty there is as well as Their Human Stem Cell Therapy and you can watch why:
Their people I think is their most important asset second to their excellent services offered. To give you an idea what can you get out of Shimmian, Yo can visit their site at Shimian Manila and you can reserve an appointment online as well. They don’t post their prices on line just because they do their service the most personalized possible way since no one is the same to another. not only they do great service but they also acknowledge you as a person and an individual.
