My new favorite beauty secret: OxyGeneo facials from Aivee Clinic

I'm 38 years old and my skin looks better than ever. Not perfect (yet!) because I was so bad to my skin forever. I only began a real skincare regime a couple of years ago and my skin is thanking me already. Makes me think of how my skin would've been like if I had always been masipag about cleansing, repairing, moisturizing and protecting! So if you're in your 20s and reading this, make sure to deep clean, apply eye cream and anti-aging serum, use sunscreen every morning and moisturize every night!

I also look so much better recently because of this amazing facial from the Aivee Clinic—the OxyGeneo. This is me at the relaxing treatment room at Dr. Aivee Aguilar-Teo's clinic (more like spa!) at Mega Fashion Hall. I'm just about to get my OxyGeneo facial, which is the BEST FACIAL I've gotten in all my 38 years. Let me tell you all about it!
Luxurious experience. From minty refreshments at the lobby to fluffy comforters on the treatment beds. 

What is it?
OxyGeneo is called the super facial because it's three facials in one: exfoliation, rejuvenation and healing. It's microdermabrasion on the surface and then infusion of nutrients and then healing oxygen into the skin. So dead cells that dull skin are removed and then revitalizing ingredients are pushed deep into the skin with oxygen. The result is smoother, firmer, plumper, finer skin.

Here are just a few of the benefits:
  • Hydrated and plumped up skin reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Collagen is increased so skin is firmer and tighter
  • Skin takes on a glow

How does it go?
The facial starts with a thorough cleansing. Skin is then exfoliated, then undergoes radio-frequency treatment for noninvasive contouring and firming. It ends with skin infused with essential nutrients and oxygen. The oxygen increases and hastens the effectivity of the treatment.

I researched all over the Internet and OxyGeneo in most clinics around the world is offered as an exfoliation-oxygenation facial, so their facials last just 30 minutes. Dr. Aivee adds lots of extra goodies. Here's what to expect:

Step 1: Makeup remover is applied on face and neck to melt away makeup, dirt and oils.
Step 2: Cleansing gel is massaged on face and neck for a thorough clean.
Step 3: Steaming is done for a few minutes to open up pores.
Step 4: Ultrasonic exfoliation lifts away dead skin cells on the surface while loosening stubborn dirt.
Step 5: Pricking out blackheads and whiteheads. My friend Nicole Romero of Beauty & Sparkle says you can ask to skip this.
Step 6: RF treatment for tightening and firming skin.
Step 7: Brightening gel oxygenation to infuse all these skin-saving nutrients deep into the skin.
Step 8: Collagen mask finishes off everything!

You're advised not to rinse till the next morning so I always schedule my OxyGeneo facials in the afternoon so I can go straight home and sleep.

What happens after?
You'd think that with all those steps above, your skin would be staging an angry revolution. I thought that would happen, too, after I had a facial in another spa-clinic and was promised there was no downtime. Grabe lang. My face was swollen and hot and felt burned for two weeks!!! So whenever spa-clinics tell me there's no downtime, I get scared. But with OxyGeneo, wala talagang downtime! In fact, my skin was tighter and brighter after just one session. And it really felt pampered.

See below, my skin before my very first OxyGeneo on the left, and my skin after on the right. No redness, just a nice glow!

We really saw a difference just three days after my facial. My husband (who discourages me from getting facials after that time my face was burned off) was staring... and staring and staring at me. He said my skin was nice and glowing and that I looked younger. That was just after one session of OxyGeneo! You can bet that he encourages me now to get my OxyGeneo facials!

I'm now in the middle of my treatment. A treatment is best at 6 sessions. My fourth will be next week. But I already see results. My fine lines decreased. My skin is brighter, clearer, tighter. I think I look younger! For example, my crow's feet are GONE.

See below my makeup-less, no-filter, super close up photo. Usually, a smile produces three very visible lines at the corners of my eyes. But now, wala na.


I really super love my OxyGeneo facials!

I wish I had the time to do the facials properly. I should go every 7-10 days. But because of my packed schedule, I go every 4-6 weeks. I guess if I did the prescribed schedule, my face would be so much more fabulous. Sigh!

Okay, if you have any questions, please leave them below and I'll ask Dr. Aivee. She's super smart and super nice and very helpful. And super galing! I highly recommend you visit her clinics and see and feel for yourself the Aivee touch!

  2. I've read somewhere it's P6,000 per session. Whoa. Is it really that expensive?

    1. Yes. It is really 6K per session. But if you buy 6 sessions, it's "just" 30k. It's worth it naman! But, yeah, that's a lot of money!

  3. Hello Frances! I'm just confused because I thought you are having your facials at Flawless and when I read this blog and its another clinic! Are you still having appointments at Flawless or did you change clinic for good? Thank you!
