MANILA -- Kapamilya actor Daniel Matsunaga led the recent ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new Glow Skin Clinic, which brings a dose of self-care to stressed out urbanites.

The clinic, which opens to the public on Saturday, August 25, at Uptown Mall in Taguig, offers quick treatments for those on the go, as well as intensive treatments for those looking for some deep rest and relaxation. 

"We want Filipinos to embrace that skin care and self-love are not vain luxuries, but celebrations of their natural glow from within,” Camille Dizon Padilla, Sparkle and Glow president, said.

“We believe that everyone should be able to experience high-quality skin aesthetic services without feeling like they’ve broken the bank."

During the launch, Glow Skin Clinic treated their guests, led by Matsunaga and other celebrities, with pampering activities, as well as make-up sessions. 

Specially designed Glow Rooms, designed to invoke tranquility with their pastel color scheme, were the venues for the various specialty treatments.

Facials come simple and straightforward in the Essential Facial or Signature Facial, promising clearer and glowing skin, while more specialized treatments include the Glow-up Laser Light Facial, Jet-Light Facial, and the Crystal Carbon Peel, a premium rejuvenating treatment with an activated carbon peel plus a laser facial.

More intensive treatments include the Contour Facial by Pollogen Legend that uses RF to contour and slim the face; and the Madonna Glow by Oxylight that uses six non-invasive beauty treatments to achieve a more youthful look. 

“Our treatments have been conceptualized with an understanding of what people need, and would definitely give them the lift they need,” Padilla said.
