Diamond Peel plus Facial at YSA Skincare Center

In this fast paced world, the tolls of our fast paced lives and unhealthy lifestyles stake their claim on the health of our skin. Not to mention the dust, grime, dirt and pollution of our environment. It is imperative that we pamper our skin especially our face. Because it is what other people see when we talk to them. The face needs to be tended to and taken care of. After all, it is one of our most noticeable assets and even an instrument of vanity.

Pampering is all about loving. So, one afternoon I went to YSA Skin Care Center to have some facial and diamond peel.
Upon entering YSA Skin Care Center, I was welcomed by the receptionist and the resident dermatologist. They asked me to fill up some form then asked me what services I will avail. I chose facial with diamond peel as my treatment of choice. I then sat down and waited for my turn. While waiting, I saw these posters which detailed their available services. Bali's transformation is one for the books!
Yes, customers can while their time away watching TV.
The staff asked me to wash my face in the sink using the Papaya Liquid Soap. They then let me sit down and applied mask on my face in this area.  After putting on the mask, the staff turned on the fan to dry the mask on my face.
I was then instructed to lie down on this bed. I then waited for the nurse to do my facial.
This nurse is well trained in performing facial. She's also the one who performed the diamond peel on my face.
Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! It is me. Do not be afraid :-) ha ha ha!

For the benefit of those who are not familiar with Diamond Peel plus Facial at YSA Skincare Center here are some FAQs I asked the good doctor so that we could all be enlightened!

What is Diamond Peel?

Diamond Peel is a fast and pain-free non-surgical exfoliation of the skin using natural diamond chips while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away. It rejuvenates the skin leaving it remarkably supple, vibrant and youthful-looking.

It removes the topmost layer of the skin without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. It restores and maintains the health of the skin with little or no redness at all.
Through the regeneration of the epidermal cell structure, the skin's elasticity and collagen level are improved. And because the outer layer of dead skin cell is removed, it promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells and leaves a smoother skin texture.

What results can be expected with Diamond Peel?

An improvement in the skin's texture and appearance will immediately be noticed. Age spots, fine lines and freckles will be erased or diminished. Stretch marks and acne scars will be less evident. Lots of patients tell that their skin appears more even, smoother, suppler and younger.

What is the procedure?

Diamond Peel uses a gentler microdermabrasion approach which features a dual control system and adjustable applicator head that delivers a steady, effective stream of fine diamond directly onto the skin. The old surface is removed leaving it smooth, fresh and rejuvenated. It erases the epidermal layers at varying depths in a safe, controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of the skin and promotes even healing.

How soon can I see visible results?

 Your skin may look slightly rosy immediately after the treatment. Right on the first treatment, your skin will look fresh, smoother and radiant. Your skin will further improve as you continue with additional treatments. Regular maintenance visits will enhance the long term results.

How often should treatments be given?

Frequency and spacing of the treatment depends on the area and type of skin being treated. Like all other microdermabrasion technique, diamond peel is a progressive skin rejuvenation procedure. To achieve maximum result, recommended number of treatments ranges from 2 to 12 sessions spaced one week apart to one month apart. Since the process is so gentle, you can have as many treatments as you need without any side effects.

What are the advantages of Diamond Peel over other techniques?
  • Diamond Peel is a safe, precise and effective.
  • It is non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Treatment is virtually painless.
  • There is less or no discomfort at all.
  • There is no unsightly peeling appearance
  • Requires no downtime after treatment thus normal activities can be resumed immediately
How long does each treatment take?

Each session of Diamond Peel takes about 10-20 minutes. However, stretch mark treatments can take as long as 2 hours. The treatments are individualized to the needs of your skin condition.

The next time you find yourself so stressed out, pamper your skin, have some Diamond Peel plus Facial at YSA Skincare Center. With them, you're surely in good hands.

Phil Younghusband wins the Golden Boot award

Striker Phil Younghusband cradled and kept a close eye on his most prized possession to date: The Golden Boot award in the AFC Challenge Cup.

The 24-year-old Phil Younghusband was a former reserve at English Premiere League club Chelsea who now plays for Loyola Meralco in the United Football League.

Younghusband finished with six goals from five matches, powering the Azkals to a historic third-place finish.

Phil Younghusband said the Golden Boot award is really important to him because it is his first award at the senior level.

Unlike in previous tournaments where he was isolated on the attack, Younghusband had plenty of help, and the striker believes the presence of quality players keyed his explosive performance is time.

“I couldn’t have done it without my teammates,” said Younghusband, who scored twice against India and Palestine, which lost to the Azkals, 4-3, in the battle for third place, and one each against Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.

“With Angel (Guirado), we started to click and link up well. And of course I always had a connection with my brother James.”

Phil said bagging third place was a milestone in itself.

At the awarding ceremonies at Dashrath Stadium Monday night, Younghusband shared the limelight with North Korean midfielder Pak Nam-chol, the tournament MVP. North Korea edged Turkmenistan, 2-1, for the title.                                                                                             source inquirer


Araguy! Common Juan and Maria would again feel the crunch of shelling out additional fifty centavos each way due to a provisional fare hike starting today, March 21, 2012. It will translate to P1 hike for two-way transportation of commuters to their workplace, school, home or other places of destination.

Public utility jeepneys (PUJs) operating in the National Capital Region and Regions 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 will start charging P8.50 minimum fare to passengers today after Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) finally decided to reinstate the former minimum jeepney fare of P8.50 after weeks of public consultation and deliberation.

The LTFRB has allowed jeepney operators to charge an additional 50-centavo fare for the first four kilometers of travel without hiking the rate for the succeeding kilometers.
LTFRB clarified that the provisional 50-centavo jeepney fare increase will NOT cover the following:
  • Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao
  • Cordillera Administrative Region
  • Region 1
  • Region 5 
  • Region 12
Transport operators in the above areas did not initiate any similar fare hike petition.

Reason for the fare hike: LTFRB has reached the decision after having seen that indeed there has been an increase in the cost of spare parts like tires, brake oils and other accessories, not to mention the rising cost of fuel, electricity and basic goods and services for the past four years of automotive spare parts and accessories, when minimum jeepney fare was pegged at P8.50 and not because of the militant transport operators’ threat to mobilize mass demonstrations, paralyze public transportation, and boycott the big oil companies if their petition for provisional fare increase is ignored.

According to Mar Roxas, the provisional fare increase may influence inflation but not significantly because it will not be heavy to shell out an additional P1 on one’s daily budget for a two-way transportation.

I beg to disagree sir. Common Juan and Maria will have to shell out triple that amount if they have to ride a trike to go to the main road, then transfer to a jeepney then another jeepney going to work. A three pesos (Php 3.00) additional burden everyday multiply by 30 days would translate to Php 90.00. A burdensome amount if you are the common Juan or Maria. And nothing for elite people who don't commute going to work.

I wish this government officials commute to work everyday so they will feel how it is to commute going to work and back.I also hope they earn the same salary as that of Juan and Maria, and let's hear them talk after they got this news.

There's so much hype about this Magnum. A lot of people I know buy Magnum at every chance they get. Hey, Gunless Society of the Philippines don't look at me like that :-P! We're talking about Magnum Ice Cream here dear, not the gun, ha ha ha! Some of you might have thought that the Philippines had gone into war or civil unrest. Well, well, we're just dissecting how engrossed the Filipinos are right now with this so called Magnum ice cream.
Why do Filipinos go gaga over Magnum? I observed, read and look at every nook and corner of Facebook, Forums and Twitter so I would know the answer to this question. 

I learned, it is simply because a lot of Filipinos would like to be"IN" on what's hot this summer. Oo nga naman, in order for them to take part in every conversations, FB post, FB pose and tweet about MAGNUM's taste they needed to buy a Magnum Ice Cream and taste it themselves..
This is Ann Curtis instagram picture of Magnum on Twitter.

Magnum is an ice cream brand owned by the British/Dutch Unilever company, and sold as part of the Heartbrand line of products in most countries. It was originally made by Frisko in Aarhus, Denmark. The original 1987 Magnum (later rebranded as Magnum Classic) consisted of a thick bar of vanilla ice cream on a stick, covered with white or dark chocolate, with a weight of 86 grams (120 ml). In 1994, the company also started selling Magnum ice cream cones, and in 2002, an ice cream sandwich.
Magnum Ice cream has 4 flavors being offered in the Philippines.  
  • MAGNUM Classic - Has thin coatings of bitter sweet, dark chocolate. 
  • MAGNUM Truffles - Some find this outrageously Delicious. Why? Because it is said to have a velvety smooth vanilla ice cream inside covered in thick cracking Belgian chocolate outside.
  • MAGNUM Almond - It is said to be made of milky chocolate, a little thicker than Magnum classic with almond bits. Almost the same taste as that of Cadbury Milk Chocolate. The vanilla ice cream has a smooth taste and taste like very smooth McDo sundae.
  • Magnum Caramel flavor  - Some like Caramel. And said to favor this flavor more than the others.

All my eyes can see is an ordinary ice cream but yummy according to a lot of Filipinos. Well I believe it is a little bit expensive. And I don't have a job. So that means I am not in :-( How can I tweet like crazy like them? My make-believe fame had all gone kaput when RFM-Selecta did not bother to invite me to their Magnum Ice Cream grand launching last March 14, 2012 at the Whitespace in Makati City. 
I could have rubbed elbows sana with Magnum Ice Cream's brand ambassadors Raymond Gutierrez, Liz Uy, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Erwan Heussaff, Rajo Laurel and Solenn Heussaff, and with the handful of celebrities who also turned up for the Magnum VIP Party, such as Kim Chiu, Diether Ocampo, Ruffa Gutierrez, Bianca Gonzalez, Andi Eigenmann, Maxene Magalona, Champ Lui Pio, Rufa Mae Quinto, Fabio Ide, Gino dela Peña, Mikael Daez, ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, GMA CEO Felipe L. Gozon and a lot more.

Red Hot Car! Ferrari is it for Solenn Heussaff's ride.

Magnum is said to be surprisingly affordable in the Philippines. Priced at just P50 each in major supermarkets, it’s a guilt-free indulgence every Filipino pleasure-seeker can enjoy.

Magnum is said to be available for Php 60.00 at 7-Eleven stores, Php 55.00 at Mini Stop and  Php 50.00 at supermarkets. It is said to be available in different convenience stores, gasoline stations and sari-sari stores nationwide.
Anyway, the fourth flavor Magnum Caramel flavor is said to be available at S &R.
