Pride Month: Turn your scars into stars
Being gay is not just a matter of being particular with the fad, with diet and poise in public. Being a gay man requires too much particularity with our looks. No wonder, metrosexuality (balidoso in Tagalog) is one thing that sets us apart from most straight men. We are very particular with our looks: our skin, our hair, and our overall physique. You’ll definitely see us gay men in salons, fashion departments, and gyms.
But of all the facets that make us vain, our skin is our prime consideration. It is the first thing that people see and notice. Yet, most of us have been in a loophole of having pimples when we were still young or even now.
You are definitely not alone. I was also a victim of the scars (both literal and figurative) that having pimples can bring. When I was young, adolescence brought me to a stage of despair having pimples while going to school. And now that I am a young professional, an MA student, start-up entrepreneur and a full-time blogger, stress plagues my skin with its deteriorating powers—-especially pimples.
Fortunately, I met with someone who has been in our shoe that is ready to help us with our daily aesthetic needs—Dr. Kyla Talens. Dr. Kyla Talens is the owner of Skin Philosophie Medical Aesthetic and Lifestyle Solutions. She is a UK-trained Aesthetic Dermatologist which sets her apart from other “usual” dermatologists. (Aesthetics over dermatology — if there are contraindications, Dr. Talens wouldn’t allow her patient to undergo a certain procedure).

What I like about Skin Philosophie Medical Aesthetic and Lifestyle Solutions is the lifestyle solutions it provides to their patients rather than looking at us as mere paying customers. It also goes to show that Dr. Talens considers the resources and preferences of her patients. She believes that skin care is not supposed to be costly (as we have grown to know). More so, she caters a holistic approach to her services not only focusing on the external outcome but also on internal impact.
Very posh setting of the room.
In Skin Philosophie Medical Aesthetic and Lifestyle Solutions, they believe that “Crafting beauty is an art. Be our masterpiece.” Now through this blog, let me show you how Dr. Talens made me one.
This is how affordable luxury looks like.
I tried the Skin Philosophie Signature Facial (60 mins). This is indeed different from the usual facials I tried before where pricking seems to be a normal thing to do to your skin.
She is Alyssa. She did the first part of the facial on me. Very well-trained and kind, I must say.

First comes cleansing using a hypoallergenic cleanser (for sensitive to normal skin) or a degreasing wash (for oily skin).
It is then followed by a sensual aromatherapy, a calming lymphatic massage, and galvanic toning.
I can smell the scent of sophistication here at Skin Philosophie Medical Aesthetic and Lifestyle Solutions.
Excuse my reaction here as this is just definitely so relaxing. LOL
Scrubbing and diamond microdermabrasion come next to facilitate deeper cleansing by removing dead skin cells that clog pores, as well as superficial blackheads and whiteheads.
Tired of being pricked aggravating scars from usual facials? Skin Philosophie’s Signature Facial scrapes whiteheads and blackheads by doing this instead of painful pricking.
Finally, a high-frequency device closes the pores and application of toner restores the natural skin pH.
Check out the other services of Skin Philosophie Medical Aesthetic and Lifestyle Solutions that range from laser treatments, anti-aging (face and body), acne management, skin lightening, body contouring, electrocautery, and injectables here.
Taking care of our skin might be a daunting thing to do. We might even think of it as a costly option that must be done every month. But with Dr. Talens’ Skin Philosophie Signature Facial, it can be an affordable luxury that all of us gay men can lavish and try. With Dr. Talens’ expertise as an Aesthetic Dermatologist and her drive to let other people rise from the sinkhole that she has been into, I can definitely say that she made her scars into stars.
All done! I feel so fab and fresh just like Dr. Talens.
