A medical spa combines results-oriented aesthetic treatments with medical advancements and sometimes with complementary traditional therapies. Those looking for beauty therapy treatments in Cebu have a number of options available to them.
Skintech Face and Beauty Center offers a wide range of services, products and treatments. Two of these are intense pulsed light (IPL) for permanent underarm hair removal and micro-current slimming treatment against cellulite.
IPL is a permanent hair reduction technique during which the intense pulsed light is absorbed into the hair follicles and converted to heat, thus inhibiting hair growth mechanisms. The hair-removal process starts with cleansing the underarms with soap and water then finding out the skin and hair type with a special device. Finally, underarm hair will be removed by laser, from the armpits. Some patrons further opt for micro-dermabrasion underarm whitening, which consists of a standard scrubbing and peeling procedure.
For your arms, belly or back area, Skintech also offers the micro-current slimming treatment in a thirty-minute or one-hour session. The treatment combines technology and techniques that stimulate fat and muscle layers and lead to slimming. It includes an electro-cellulite massage performed by a specially trained technician, which increases circulation and stimulates skin smoothing. The system is designed to help you lose inches that refuse to leave. You can burn fat, lose non-water weight, and expunge stress during a treatment session. Patients are measured before and after the treatment to quantify their results. If you need to target a specific area, you can tell the technicians to focus on that area, whether you want to firm up your arms, lose a muffin-top belly or bring your sexy back.
The most in-demand Skintech aesthetic treatments are probably the IPL permanent hair removal, photorejuvenation for pigmented lesions etc., acne clearance, treatment for vascular lesions, and skin rejuvenation. Among the other treatments available at Skintech are facial treatments like advanced micro-current anti-aging facial, orbital micro-dermabrasion for scars or blemishes, and whitening treatments for underarm, bikini line, elbow, or knee.

MCAA Skin Enhancement and Care Centre
Stretch marks are a problem for many women. These dermal striations particularly on the hips and abdomen are usually due to pregnancy or obesity. At the MCAA Skin Enhancement and Care Centre, derma roller wands are used to implement stretch mark revision and reduction. After the area with stretch marks is cleansed, enzymatic cream is applied to stimulate the blood before passing the derma roller wand over the area. A serum is then applied to peel the skin, and the serum has to remain on the area for an hour.
You can also avail of MCAA’s whitening and rejuvenating facial. To remove oil, dirt, makeup, and other facial residue, cleansing milk and a scrub will initially be applied to the face. Pesky blackheads and whiteheads will be extracted from pores. For a fair finish, whitening medication and a facial mask will be applied. The procedure takes about forty-five minutes.
MCAA brought its skin care technology to Cebuanos in 2006, after it started out in 2000, as a skin-care hub called Skin Essentials Skin Care Treatment and Health Consultancy International in Hong Kong. You’ll find the MCAA Skin Enhancement and Care Centre at the QC Pavilion on Gorordo Avenue. To get in contact with MCAA by telephone, call (032)232-0671.
The Mendéz Medical Group has a number of branches in the Philippines, one of which is in SM City Cebu. It is one of the medical group’s Weigh-less Nutrition Centers, but you can also get such things as acne control therapy and sclerotherapy treatment there.
Sclerotherapy is the injection of a sclerosing agent (such as morrhuate sodium) into a varicose vein to produce inflammation and scarring that closes the lumen and is followed by shrinkage. Sometimes it’s also called prolotherapy, although prolotherapy is more about treating musculoskeletal pain. Considered the gold standard in varicose vein erasure, sclerotherapy is preferable to laser treatment for eliminating large spidery veins in the legs.
In acne control therapy, skin-savvy therapists administer a whitening facial scrub that treats one’s face and zaps it mildly to suppress acne and remove blackheads. This step is followed by application of a whitening mask to help in giving one’s face a pristine look. Derma therapists then apply a fruit acid solution to the face to further destroy the remains of pimples and irregularities on the skin.
You can find the Cebu location of Mendéz Medical at A-306 SM City Cebu. To call the place, dial telephone number (032)239-0686.
