Japan’s Miss Esthe Facial Salon and Skin Care in Now in the Philippines

Just a few years back walking into a skin care salon is like walking into a parlor and having my nails or hair done, it’s very feminine; but in this day and age, vanity is no longer exclusive to one gender. Men are now as vain as women, probably even more and skin care is on top of their list.

There are plenty of skin care salon out there and they all have the same offer, so what makes one different for the other? It’s the ambiance, the technology, the techniques, and the pricing. I have been to a few skin care salon and just recently I visit a newly opened clinic in BGC – Miss Esthe Facial Salon and Skin Care. It’s a franchise form Japan the one in Up Town Mall BGC is the first in the country.


First question that popped right out of my mind is who is Miss Esthe? She isn’t a person by the way, it’s a personification of what the ideal skin is. If “Miss” signifies youth and “Esthe” is a short term for Esthetics, Miss Esthe, then, is someone who is simple but astute in her choices, especially when it comes to her well-being.  If you are to persona into the name Miss Esthe she is someone who loves to wear light make-up, is highly fashionable, a go-getter who actively pursues her career while living a successful, balanced life. Sounds like everyone’s dream girl.

Miss Esthe uses a method called Skin Navigation System, that determines skin age from various perspectives such as spot age (age of the skin based on the appearance of age spots), wrinkle age (age of skin based on the appearance of wrinkles), and skin texture age (age of the skin based on its texture). From there, the esthetician can suggest the treatments and cosmetics needed to address the customer’s present skin conditions.

I hate to admit but they suggested that I try their Anti-Aging Treatment which takes 90 mins. They use a scientifically advanced, non-invasive, customized, age-defying and radiance-enhancing products and services from a company that has been studying women’s skin seriously for three decades.

First I had to change, I feel like I was cosplaying for Panday. Then a short briefing after filling up form. The treatment started with cleansing then application of toner. I have not taken note of what was done but there were a lot. After the toner, esthetician used a device that uses heat and vibration for pricking, then an ion brush was used for lifting and tightening.

There was a massage done using emolia oil and calming essence then mild mask was applied for acne. After that a refining essence refining mask then she used sonic machine for detoxification and lifting. LED light therapy was done with biomask to improve skin texture.

Miss Esthe’s estheticians are trained by experienced master trainers in Japan. They are competent and follow strict Japanese operational guidelines in order to provide top-notch service and treatment to clients. They are also trained to operate the state-of-the-art Neo Energy EX facial machine, which ensures a highly effective, safe, and non-invasive way to provide facial care.

I just hope I got it right, I actually heard myself snoring because I fell asleep during the treatment, the facial massage was really good. My after treatment photo looks like I just got out of bed. Nevertheless I felt like I could win Ginoong Pasig 2018 after the treatment.

Beside is Ms Chinky Gabas, the director for Miss Esthe Facial Salon and Skin Care in the Philippines, she mentioned that they have customized skincare solutions to help women (and men) to achieve beautiful skin regardless of age, skin type and complexion.  “We have a promising location in one of Metro Manila’s progressive cities, and Miss Esthe is looking forward to providing the best of Japanese beauty techniques to Filipinos who are discerning in their choices for self-care,

A lot of people want to have fairer skin, so we have whitening treatments to achieve that shine and radiance effect. And because Filipino skin is normally acne-prone due to the air quality, lifestyle and diet, our Crystal Clear Facial blackheads and whiteheads removal which uses the D-Sonic probe that emits ultrasound micro-vibrations, is the ideal treatment,” explained Chiharu Nagano, Japanese Master Trainer.  “Even our male clients love this facial because they always come out of the salon with a clear face with tightened, uncongested pores.”

Beyond the facial massage, Miss Esthe boasts of a wide range of facial and skin care treatments, and all of them are non-invasive and 100% safe. 

For instance, our Wrinkle Care Serum and Gel are formulated with four kinds of anti-inflammatory and anti-aging peptides. Most importantly, all our products are fragrance-free, colouring-free, paraben free and surfactant free, making them safe for long-term use,”  Nagano said.

Other skin care products include Cleansing and Foam, a 2-in-1 make-up remover & facial cleanser that is good for all skin types; Essence Lotion, a 2-in-1 toner and serum which comes in variants to address different skin needs and Perfect Oil Serum, a rich moisturizer which corrects texture and prevent formation of wrinkles.

Miss Esthe is not just a facial salon. It is a haven where clients exude a relaxed, more youthful and radiant skin even after the first session,”  Gabas concluded.
