A few weeks ago, I got a Diamond Peel at Contours Megamall for only P850!
Based on my previous inquiries, I thought that diamond peels would cost at least a few thousand pesos, so when I saw that Contours offered a Diamond Peel for only P850, I jumped on the chance to try it!
I think I am getting addicted to diamond peels! I just had one earlier this year.
Contours is more known for its weight-loss and Vaser services, but when I perused their list of services, I was surprised to see that they also offered diamond peels at an affordable P850.
When I dropped by Contours Megamall to get a diamond peel, they were busy. They recommend scheduling an appointment, but fortunately they were able to fit me in within the day.
Contours Megamall is located at the 5th Floor of SM Megamall A, near the entrance to Parking Building C. They have a nice waiting area where you can sit while waiting for your turn.
One of the attendants led me to a small room. There’s a small bed where I lied down.
Here’s a tray of their prepared items:
The attendant cleaned my face with some cream, I’m guessing it’s some sort of cleanser, and then she set up the steamer. She steamed my face for about 5-10 minutes, after which she cleaned it up and then started the pricking process.
The good thing about the attendants at Contours is that they come back on time. If they tell you that this procedure will take 10 minutes (for example, the steaming), they come back at 10 minutes. Unlike that other place where the staff find tsismis more important and forget all about their customers.
When she started pricking, medyo mabigat ang kamay But after I gently told her that it was painful and not to press so hard, she did make an effort to use a lighter hand.
She actually did not get too many whiteheads or blackheads from my face. She even said that halos wala siyang nakuha. And no, it’s not her fault. After my first diamond peel, I am really amazed at how my face has remained so smooth! It’s been 4 months since my first diamond peel and I get very, very few whiteheads or blackheads. Almost none. Not even on my nose!
I do get occasional pimples but I use Eskinol + Dalacin C on them, hold the wet cotton on the pimple for a few minutes, and the pimples vanish in a few days.
Anyway, back to the diamond peel. After the pricking process, she prepared the diamond peel machine. There’s a metal wand where diamond tips can be attached. First, she used the rough one, then changed to the finer diamond tip.
She just ran the diamond tip all over my face. It’s not painful. I used to be worried about getting diamond peels because my facial skin is thin, but having done it twice now, I feel like it doesn’t really hurt my thin facial skin. It just feels like very fine sandpaper on your face, with a little bit of suction (like a small vacuum).
I did not experience any redness or any bad reaction, except for the part when the diamond tip is gliding on my skin, which was only mildly unpleasant.
I noticed that it takes at least a week before I finally appreciate the results of the diamond peel. After my diamond peel at Contours, parang wala lang when I left the clinic. I actually felt underwhelmed. Parang wala namang nangyari sa mukha ko. But after a few days, whenever I wash my face, I can’t help but notice how smooth my face is! Also, my pores are smaller and almost unnoticeable.
It’s been 3 weeks since my diamond peel and I’m still loving how smooth my face feels! This is coming from someone who used to have problems with pimples that I had to go for a basic facial cleaning every two weeks at one point.
I love touching my face and I love doing make-up now because my face is so freakin’ smooth. Make-up glides on like a dream. Nakaka-narcissistic!
Despite all the skin smoothing I do on my body, like using scrubs and particularly, a milk salt scrub, there’s still a big, noticeable difference between the skin on my body and on my face. A diamond peel really makes a big impact. I don’t think other people will notice that you did a diamond peel, the result is not that visible to other people. For me, it’s more how my skin feels. It is amazingly smooth, almost polished. Just make it a habit to moisturize every time after you wash your face.
Kung puwede lang, I want to do a diamond peel on my entire body!
The diamond peel at Contours is one of the more affordable ones I’ve seen, at P850. Of course, you won’t be getting the high-end treatment like in more expensive places. Just don’t expect 5-star service, but their service is decent and adequate, even if the attendants do seem a bit harried.
The attendants are nice and easy to talk to, they don’t hurry you up, and even if I can tell that they are also working on other customers doing other kinds of treatments in the other rooms, they never made me feel like their mind was elsewhere during my treatment, and they never forgot about me.
The number of their staff is rather small, so they can only accommodate a limited number of customers, so try visiting them during off-peak, like weekday mornings and afternoons. They recommend scheduling an appointment so that you’re sure to get a slot. You can call or text them to book a slot.
