It has become a tradition that celebrities like Maymay Entrata, Sue Ramirez and Liza Soberano pamper themselves with a Belo Clinic treatment before heading to the Star Magic Ball, now known as the ABS-CBN Ball at the Belo Beauty Suite. It all started last year (Star Magic Ball 2017) when Cristalle Belo thought it would be best to make the pampering sesh accessible to celebs on the day itself since the clinic was always fully booked right before the ball.
On its second run, the Belo Clinic team gave us the chance to try the same treatments celebs usually get at the Belo Beauty Suite, and we said yes! Just look at their "menu" of facials and drips!
Scroll below to read what happened when two of Cosmopolitan's editors—Retty Contreras and Jacinda Lopez—got the Cinderella Drip and the Skin Reboot + Cryoslush treatments!
This infusion of vitamin C, glutathione, and Alpha Lipoic Acid gives you a clear,, radiant complexion that makes you appear lit-from-within. It can be done once a week for four months and costs P6,000 per session.
I’ve always wanted to try the Cinderella drip because it’s one of the most famous treatments Belo offers. The session started off with Dr. Jojo inserting an IV drip on my left hand—it was practically painless! The session is only 10 minutes long but only after a minute into it, I felt a boost in my energy. I felt energized and ready for the long workday ahead. There were no immediate visible effects on my face/skin, but I did ~feel~ better.
Skin Reboot + Cryoslush
Skin Reboot is a radio frequency and micro-current treatment that focuses on tightening loose, sagging skin. It defines the contours of the face to reveal a lifted, more youthful appearance. It costs P15,000 per session, and one would need to do it in four sessions with one-week intervals to see results.
To target pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads, a Cryoslush treatment was done. An ice-cold wand is applied on the face to treat and soothe the blemishes. One would get a matte yet fresh glow after each sesh.
I got the Skin Reboot treatment. It uses radio frequency technology to tighten and lift the skin and facial muscles for definition. The wands used to massage the face is warm and honestly, SO COMFORTING. The treatment lasted for about 20-30 minutes and immediately after, my face got SLIMMER. Insane! It’s a treatment I’d definitely go for to get ready for special occasions because there’s no downtime after. It’s a great treatment to prep the skin for makeup, too.
After my Skin Reboot, I did Cryolush, where a wand wrapped with cotton dipped in liquid nitrogen was gently rolled against my skin. This step was to tighten the pores and give me an instant glow. The cotton felt soooooo nice against my skin!
Here we are looking fresh and dewy, ready for the day! (Though, you know, we'll just be behind the scenes, watching the stars! LOL!)
