Tuesday, August 19, 2014
SKIN Metro Davao Total Wellness Center is keeping abreast with the world's latest innovations to deliver the best of body and skin care to Dabawenyos.
Where the latest machine is coming from: South Korea, famous for its topnotch inventions, from gadgets to skin care.
The slimming dome has just landed in Davao City, and what it can do to one's body is very surprising.
Dr. Emmanouelle Zhang, one of the owners of Skin Metro, said the slimming dome, a machine that only a topnotch clinic can perform, is a passive exercise that can help burn 1,000 calories in one session.
All one has to do is to slip inside the dome, then wait for 30 minutes. Simple! The procedure is easy.
"This procedure is selling like a hotcake," she said. Slimming dome, though, can do more than just slimming. This machine is packed with cosmetic and health benefits, among them are: relief of muscle tension, increases blood circulation and extensibility of muscle tissues.
But, there's one procedure that incorporates slimming to improving the total wellness of the client called Sexy 8 slimming.
"Sexy 8 Slimming is a new and promising technology for non-surgical healthy fat free inside out treatment that aims to contour and reduce body fat in 8 safe and effective ways," she explained.
It incorporates the expertise of Skin Metro in skin tightening, skin lifting, muscle toning, cellulite reduction, calorie burning, metabolism improvement, better blood circulation, and relief of muscle and joint tension.
Through the deep controlled heating of the fatty layers under the skin, cellulite is reduced by draining the fatty deposits as the blood circulation increases and tissue tightens.
This procedure involves bio-stimulation wave that penetrates the skin at a wave length range of 600-940nm. At this rate, it composes protein and encourages cell division, increasing of ATP inside a cell and giving more rapid Fat Emission that would eventually improve lymph and blood circulation due to its vitalization. Those undergoing Sexy 8 will also experience ultrasonic wave therapy.
"It reduces fat under chin and eyes, arms, side, hips, thighs, calf, ankle," she added.
A client is also given L-carnitine, which is an amino acid (a building block for proteins), that converts stored fats into energy.
The list of benefits actually goes on. It is not only for slimming but also for the overall well-being of the clients. After all, Skin Metro's approach to beauty is more than skin deep.
"It's good for your health and helps you detoxify. It's really nice because we have a lot of positive feedbacks with this type of treatment because it's effective," she said.
Upon a growing request, skin and body peeling is now in the list of offerings of Skin Metro since July this year.
"What it does, it peels off the superficial skin, and will keep your skin young and glowing," she said.
"Before every treatment, we screen and ask the patients (about their health conditions) because not all of them are qualified for this one," she said.
All these procedures combine may sound too frightening when done in one visit, but are actually safe because these are non-invasive types.
Its dry sauna has also landed in the city, which can hold 4 persons all at the same time.
Skin Metro is famous for its hair removal procedure called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) that delivers 99 percent success rate.
"We have a good feedback in the city. What we notice, our clients themselves spread the word about our services because they like it," she said.
Zhang added they are trying to keep themselves updated with the latest in body and skin care to be able to deliver the best services for their growing clients.
