In this day and age, life can be so fast-paced that we work tirelessly to achieve our goals, not taking enough time to pause and reassess the effect these efforts have on our well-being. And one of the first manifestations of stress and fatigue? Definitely dull, lifeless, and aging skin.
Wellness expert and health advocate Dr. Kaycee Reyes knows this scenario all too well—besides being a dermatologist, wife, and expectant mother, she is also the woman behind holistic skincare and laser center Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations. She was convinced that improving appearances isn't limited to what you see on the outside and wanted to address issues that go beyond the skin. In fact, in the years that she’s studied with different doctors across the globe, she’s learned that traditional, preventive, and alternative medicine can work together in making everyone feel and look good.
Her many years of studying dermatology in London, exchanging ideas and insights with colleagues from Singapore and Bangkok, and incorporating alternative medicines into her practice led her to found Luminisce as a haven for those who are looking for a diversified approach to beauty. “I believe that quality service, using premium products and equipment, and doctors as aestheticians who are highly experienced with both evidence-based and alternative medicine would assure the best outcome for the patient,” says Dr. Reyes.
It’s not surprising that a lot of men and women turn to her when they are looking to improve not just their skin. Dr. Reyes manages to treat every patient with a customized program that would help address their skin issues and concerns. Through the years, she's garnered an A-list clientele, including celebrities like Maggie Wilson, Carmina Villaroel, and Beauty Gonzales.
A popular procedure at her clinic? “Definitely Ultherapy,” she says. In fact, Luminisce was recently given Ultherapy's Grand Prize in the Silver Category at the recent Tala Awards hosted by Merz Aesthetics; recognizing the clinic for performing a significant number of Ultherapy treatments. “What makes Ultherapy so popular is that it’s a non-invasive procedure that yields results,” Dr. Reyes says. She adds that in spite of the hype, “the machine speaks for itself and you can’t ignore the effects.”
Ultherapy gives patients an alternative to surgical facelifts by using ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. The procedure induces new collagen production and targets areas like the neck, under the chin, and above the brows. After a month or two, patients will begin to notice their faces looking more slim and contoured. Dr. Reyes also says anyone can go about their busy day once the procedure is done since there is no downtime needed.
Trusting your doctor is always the key to looking and feeling your best, and Dr. Reyes is not about to compromise that, saying: “I make sure to help my patients be more aware of themselves and their skin and body issues with every procedure we offer. Supplementing our treatments with good nutrition, a balanced diet, and exercise also help with the results in achieving a younger, better-looking self, which is something I try to personally discuss with those who come to us.”
When asked what her patients—whether old or new—look for, she answers, “I think it’s important to provide each patient with all the possible options available. This way, they can properly assess what they need to do and manage their expectations at the same time.”
