When in Manila, treat yourself to some “me time” and spend a day in the spa or a similar establishment where you can clear your mind and just lay back and relax. Such places are abundant in the metro but nothing beats going somewhere that has it all.
Aesthetic Science, for instance, is a one-stop shop that has been in the industry for six years already. Aside from spa services like facial and body treatments, it also offers cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery services. What sets this establishment apart from others is its superb service and privacy of treatments.
In my previous visit, I tried the Herbal Enzyme Facial, which did wonders for my skin. During the doctor’s consultation then, she told me that I had some warts on my face and neck. I wouldn’t have known about it until she mentioned it! Apparently, it’s something viral and contagious. If you come in contact with someone who has it, say, make beso-beso with such person, then the virus will most likely get transmitted. So, I scheduled another visit to Aesthetic Science in Makati and set an appointment for Wart Removal (P100/piece for flat warts or P2,500 per area).
Before the treatment began, one of the technicians in the clinic gently cleansed my face to reveal my bare skin. Then the doctor, Dr. Yanee Santos, examined my skin and the area that needs treatment. She explained to me what to expect during the treatment—its process and its aftereffects. I was glad that she did because I never had this sort of treatment before. It was my first time to undergo it and I appreciated all the helpful information.
First, they applied topical anesthesia to the necessary areas, which are my face and neck. While I waited about 45 minutes to one hour for it to be totally absorbed, I leisurely read some magazines to keep myself entertained. I was then transferred to the treatment room where the cauterization will take place.
A particular machine is used for the treatment, which zaps away the warts. Before the actual procedure, the doctor mentioned that it might sting a little but the pain will be tolerable. I think the zapping process only took ten minutes—shorter than the waiting period for the anesthesia. The treatment concluded with the application of an anti-bacterial healing cream on the treatment areas.
Before leaving, they informed me that the cauterized areas would be reddish and would turn into scabs the next day. It is necessary to leave it as it is and not wash the affected areas for 24 hours. The scabs on the face will last for seven to ten days, while the ones on the neck will last longer—about two weeks. During that time, it is important to apply the healing cream twice a day, and not to be exposed to the sun too much. Also, it would be best to go back to the clinic after two weeks, so the doctor can check on your condition.
When in Manila, be sure that you schedule some “me time” and cater to your own needs—whether it be beautifying services, holistic ones, and even cosmetic surgery.
