I go to Strip for my waxing. I have been going for the past 2 years or so. I actually got their Brazilian package after trying out their service. I still remember the first time I got a BZ wax, I was in awe. I have been doing cold wax for the longest time so hot wax was alien to me. Can I just say, it hurts less and it's quicker too.
Just recently, I was able to try Strip's Brazilian Facial. What is it, you ask? Let me break it down for you.
It is an innovative procedure that provides non-invasive exfoliation while delivering skin type specific pharmaceutical grade topical solution to treat concerns such as dehydration, dull skin, acne and in-grown hair. The treatment is designed to treat problematic skin found it he most intimate but often most neglected body parts.
I went to Strip Serendra and upon entering, I was transported to a very urban vibe. The receptionist greets me with a smile and I was ushered to one of the rooms.
Lo and behold, their signature carrot is on top of the bed. And Jenny is on the wall. Strip's interiors are always so nice. I get a street, retro vibe when I'm there.
The room is clean, complete with everything I need. There's also small closet to store all my things.
And as I said, they're very clean and they never compromise.
They even include a sanitary wipe before proceeding to the services.
The treatment that I got was Strip Hydro for dry skin. There are times when my hair starts to grow that I get a little dry and itchy. So I felt that this was the best treatment I should try for my concern.
Strip Hydro is a nutrient-rich moisturizing formula developed to quench the thirstiest skin. Specifically designed to be delivered through Brazilian Facial, the hydrating procedure can be used independently or to increase patient satisfaction when combined with lasers and other light based treatments.
They also have:
Strip Cleanse to reveal a clearer, smoother complexion
Strip Cleanse provides relief for the most sensitive, acne prone skin. Formulated specifically for delivery with Brazilian Facial, Strip Cleanse combines Salicylic Acid and Aloe to promote a clear complexion overall and improve the appearance of cystic and pustule acne.
Strip Light to brighten and blend
Strip Light employs cutting-edge peptide technology to improve the appearance of discoloration and achieve a more even tone overall. Treatment with Strip Light offers an accelerated approach to brightening that is effective and without the risks of irritation of other brightening agents.
Strip Vitamin C to infuse your skin with Vitamin C
Sun, stress and pollution can take a toll on skin at any age. If your skin is looking tired and dull, your doctor can work with you to determine if Brazilian Facial with Strip Vitamin C is right for you. The potent antioxidant formula helps to brighten, exfoliate and infuse your skin with an arsenal of targeted antioxidants to protect against free-radical damage.
Since the package was Strip and Polish. They start with a Brazilian Wax first before proceeding to the facial.
The "polish" or Brazilian Facial uses this machine.
The tip is sanitized first and then they use it to exfoliate the area. It's actually not that painful. When I asked about it and they said that it's like Diamond Peel, I expected some sort of micro-wounds and pain. But it just felt like tickling the skin. I, for some reason, felt very relaxed.
Hydro serum inside
After the facial, they put cream on the area and off I go. As always, I was advised not to wet the area and to exfoliate after 1 week to prevent in-grown hair, which is also caused by dryness.
Fast forward to 3 days later, after the mild swelling subsided (normal after a Brazilian wax), I was able to feel and see the difference of the facial. My skin was indeed smoother and softer than ever. No itching as well, unlike before. I could compare it to a child's skin. Seriously. When I look at it, I can also see that my skin looks more hydrated and more supple. It's pretty cool!
The treatment is safe for all skin types, but isn't recommended to those people who are undergoing IPL.
Price is a little steep at P3000/session. However, if you have problematic skin, may it be in the intimate area of your body or even other parts such as kneecaps, underarms, elbows, buttock lines, eyes and lips (other prices apply), this is something that you might want to check out.
I saw a difference in just 1 session so imagine more/regular sessions. It's also good to trust an establishment that has the facilities, equipment and research behind it.
Here are the other prices of Strip's services:
Here's Cielo who did my treatment for the day. I highly recommend her. She was so patient in answering all of my questions and explained each and every step to me. If you have other specific questions, you may contact Strip directly.
