REVISITED | Shinagawa’s Laser Genesis Treatment Review

June 12, 2015

Admittedly, I am a skin-care late-bloomer. I didn’t really pay much attention to my skin care routine until few years ago. My main concerns are the usual: huge pores on my cheeks and combination to oily skin. 

 And because I have oily skin, I was comforted with the fact that oily-skinned gals shall age “more gracefully” than those with dry skin. I think there is truth to this belief. Until now I don’t have visible wrinkles to say the least.  However, I don’t have too much scars or pimples too- just my biggest problems are the size of my pores and looking like a grease ball from time to time.

Last year, I tried Shinagawa’s Laser Genesis Treatment but since I had some beach trips in Bicol during the Christmas break, I didn’t think much about getting another treatment. I was instead contemplating on getting another treatment but changed my mind after some human being dissuaded me. This person thinks I don’t need it any type of laser treatment. 

Then last Monday, I showed up for another Laser Genesis treatment! Unlike harsher methods, this is done without injuring the skin (it's a non-ablative laser) and best results are obtained by doing a series of treatments. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. The skin is gently warmed during this procedure, and daily activities may be resumed immediately afterwards.  You will see a more even, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished.

If you have been following my blog, you can say I’m a loyal Shinagawa customer. I had my Intralasik procedure at Shinagawa in 2012.  This is also the reason why I considered them for this kind of treatment. To be honest, I am kinda afraid of facial lasers in general because to me they are synonymous with pain, discomfort and sunburnt-looking face.

Before the procedure

You will be asked to wash your face at a designated wash area. You will then be asked to wait for couple of minutes before they will call you to proceed to the room with the laser machine.

During the procedure

You should know that there is no topical anesthesia applied on your face. Your eyes and brows will then be covered. I was warned that if and when I smelled like something is burning, that should be my baby hairs.

The actual laser felt like heat is distributed in my face. It was hot yes, but manageable. Also, please feel free to ask the other person to stop if the heat becomes unbearable. The procedure was pretty quick, I am done in less than 20 mins!

After the procedure

Without any makeup on, I can see my face glowing (yes, it is true!). Some sunblock was applied after the procedure. However, you will need more sessions to really get the results you want. This procedure costs around Php 3,000 to Php 4,000.00 per session. 

You are also not supposed to wash your face for few hours (I was told to wash it during the evening. I was there around 2pm).

The best thing about this treatment for me is that I don’t look like a mess after. No downtime, I can wear makeup the very next day. The downside perhaps is that you will need more sessions to achieve really perfect skin. But then, like anything else, beauty comes with discipline and sometimes, with a price. And so I still think it’s worth your while and money.
