Our life, experiences, and lessons learned

We finally had our first ever facial treatment! It’s been months since I was bugging Ace we should try to have a facial treatment. Ever since we are not using Mary Kay for our facial wash, I noticed my pores are getting bigger and whiteheads take over my nose! So with Ace, he also needs a facial treatment because he’s been exposed to harmful elements daily. I wasn’t successful in my first few attempts to drag him to a derma clinic because he’s so paranoid of what others would say about his face! But last Tuesday, I was able to do it and we had our first facial treatment in OroDerm clinic located in SM City. I thought services was good but after a day or two, seeing both our nose with little dark spots as a result of the healing small cuts (imagine nabalatan ang ilong namin!), we promised not to go back there anymore! We’ll better try other derm clinics that has a better skilled attendants to work on our delicate facial skin.

Just look at the laser equipment that they are using, seems they didn’t bother to clean it. Yucks! If you wanna have facial treatment, better go to other clinics, not OroDerm.

    Last dec. 2010 i went to sm santa rosa and i noticed na parang may bagong derm clinic sabi nila na 2 years na sila dun pero parang never heard sila at prang walang napunta da dern clinic na un so sabi ko try ko na lng din ng masubukan.
    1. Nung nilagyan ng cream ang face ko ni hindi man lang nila minassage. Ikinalat lang ang cream tapos pinunasan na agad unlike sa ibang derm clinic na minamasahe muna face mo.
    2. Steam agad anh kasunod, nagmamadali ba sila? Ateng may date ba ang attendant at parang minamadali ang procedure o ganun tlga.
    3. Habang ini steam sinimulan ang pricking ni hindi man lang pinunasan ang face ko na may cream pa at kka steam lang at sa isip ko wag na wag lang dudulas ang pang prick nito sa face ko.
    4. Sa sinamang palad gaya ng iniisip ko na pwedeng mangyari dumulas nga at pumasok sa loob ng ilong ko pang prick nila dahil sa hindi nag iingat ang attendant at mali ang procrdure nila.
    5. Sa ngaun nagkaroon ako phobia pag nag ppa prick ako pakiramdam ko ganun din mang yayari. Kaya masasabi ko walang kwenta ang oroderm!!!!!!!!

    True. Me and my sister tried Oroderm Zamboanga two years ago and it wasn’t well, too. That was my first time to undergo some facial treatment since I wasn’t really breaking out bad. We just thought of going for it because I felt like my pores around my nose are clogged. They went to prick my skin and it was really painful. After the treatment, we were both disappointed since our faces had more scars because of the pricking that it looked like needles were pricked on our faces and they darken. It was a total waste of money! You’re right. Others should not bother seeing this clinic and better yet go somewhere else. Ask friends first for recommendations.

    i had a facial in ORODERM KCC mall Gen Santos City, it was such a terrible experience… i will never forget the attendants name – SHEILA… while performing the facial she was busy having a flirtatious conversation with a male visitor… when the facial was finished i still had lots of white marks on my face and i had lots of red marks all over after 2 days… d natanggal mabuti ung mask na nilagay… GGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRR walang kwentang attendant, in fairness to some chosen employees of ORODERM magagaling naman ang iba, that certain sheila lang ang naiiba

    last January 8, 2010, I took my facial treatment at ORODERM here @SM Molino in Cavite.,Way back before this session, I had so many whiteheads and blackheads, pimples on my cheeks, nose and forehead,, making me feel sooooo ugly… So that pushes me to take some risk and undergo any facial treatment that will suit my condition. I was 17 by that time when my father brought me @Oroderm. The service was good, and those tiny demons on my face were all removed… Bumili kmi medicines mhal nga lang, pero effective nman sakin. Thanks to that cebuana-lady very accommodating :)

    I had a bad experience in Oroderm at Abreeza Malls, i thought, it will help me relieve from my black heads and milla (not sure of the spelling, as what the attendand told me. however, during the treatmeant, she kept on telling me some additional treatment for a better effects. i just listened to her and gave a negative response. it was ended for almost an hour. i asked bakit sandali lang xa sa ilong ko at di nya ginalaw ang sa may chin ko, as far as i know ang daming white/black heads sa ilong ko at sa may chin ko, she said, ang mga milla ang kinuha ko. i was totally disgusted of her answer kc ang sinabi sa amin, ang worth 450 included na ang black/white heads and milla na tanggalin. they deceived me, so, im sure, this is what they r doing to others 2. it will be my last visit to oroderm. to all women out there who love to have facial spa, NEVER TO VISIT ORODERM.

    bad experience rin ako sa NCCC Mall at SM Davao, yung attendant nila parang mga parlorista lang daming ino-ofer na add-ons na even u turned thendown na ini insist pa rin sa mga add-ons parang nasa palengke rin, then napa kaingay nila nag tatawan nag kwekwentuhan habang pini prick yung pimples mo, nakak inis. yung head yata nila yun sa SM, kahit marami kami sa loob lakas ng boses niya pina pagaltan niya isang attendant over the phone, at tinapun pa nya ang phone kasi aabsent daw yung attendant, sana for professionalism di mo yun gagawin sa harap ng mga klyente mo. bad bad service for oroderm,

    had a BAD BAD BAD and EXPENSIVE experience with ORODERM dito sa LImketkai Cagayan de Oro. I came in for an acne treatment with just around 3 pimples on my face. Ang daming sinabi ng attendant na kesyo daw mawawala na pimples ko with the laser treatment in just 2-3days. So I fell for it hook, line, and sinker and paid 3k for treatment… Ending, walang nangyari 1 week na at lalo pa ata dumami pimples ko! so i had to go to another clinic to be treated!!…even yong liquid facial wash na togs and the yong astringent no effect at all…dumami lang whiteheads that turned into more pimples!!!

    I tried b4 sa oroderm gaisano mall cagayan de oro..wlang kwenta..wla man lang dermatologist..compare sa Skin R Us..andyan talaga ang Dermatologist,nag aadvise sayo..sa oro derm nakakarami ng pimples ang mga cream nla..

  17. by Windyrain, on February 2 2013 @ 1:17 pm

     

    Yeah, I tried my fourth facial at Oroderm Gaisano Mactan Mall at Cebu and its not that horrible but i would say they don’t have good service.

    1. They do it like they were in a hurry. Applying cream then steam right away.

    2. The attendant is doing it roughly. Like i don’t feel comfortable when she pricked all the pimples i had. She never stop when i say its too painful for me.

    3. And at that time there were no other attendant in charge in Oroderm only her. She left me for about 20minutes and entertain the other customer in the front desk. WOW! MULTITASKING SI ATEH!!

    I wanted to have acne facial so I tried Oroderm for the first time at around 4pm yesterday at Gaisano Mall Davao. Upon inquiry at the counter, I already started to feel like walking out because the staff was quite insistent that I upgrade to a more expensive procedure. I maintained my choice and decided to go ahead and try the procedure hoping all the while it would not be as bad. But when the procedure began, I noticed a few disturbing things. First, the warm blower stayed on almost the entire procedure on my face. In all the other clinics I’ve tried, it is only used a few minutes in the beginning but is switched off when the actual procedure begins. Second, the attendant was coercive in offering the upgrade I already refused to! She must have insisted about 4-5times! Worse, she would sing along to the music on the radio while doing the procedure on my face!? That was terribly annoying! And then suddenly, during the procedure the metal instrument fell on my neck! The whole time I was just wishing it is over and that I vowed NEVER to return. The procedure ended as such a disappointment because my pimples were not all extracted contrary to the description posted at the front desk about the procedure. And after paying the bill, no one even asked how it went (there were about 3 persons at the front desk) and to add to the terrible experience, I was given P30 worth of 1 peso coins along with some paper bills as change to my payment. As I left, I felt robbed because of that awful experience. Perhaps that was why there were no other customers the whole time I was there.

    Bad experience: for two weeks namaga parang binugbug
    Ang ilong ko.. And base in my observation at sa mga nkakausap ko
    D nila sinusunod ang step by step process na dapat gawin
    Sa pagfafacial e binayaran mo namn ang buong procedure.

    Maam add po kayo ng ganito ganyan: ang sarap sagutin na
    Mukha mo kaya ang ganyanin mo kasi kita mo namn na white heads and blackheads lg problema ko sa ilong at manipis ma balat ko pra ipapeel mo pa. Tatanga tanga talaga. Minsan gusto ko ng sagutin ng ganyan ang staff ng ORODERM e.

    Kainis kng san san pa namn andun clinic nila.
    Ui my alam ako000000

    Nasunog ang balat ng cliente nila mabuti mgkakilala lng sila ng oroderm ang hinawa ni Oroderm pinahiram ang png steam pra gamitin sa matanda at makuha lahat ng sunog na balat sa mukha. Mabuti nlng mabait itong si madam:)

  25. by Jen, on August 22 2013 @ 3:30 pm

     

    Pagpumunta kayo sa clinic nila request nyo ang supervisor nila wag ung staff lng nila kasi tatanga tanga yang mga yan.

    I’ve been in oroderm two weeks ago,i had my facial treatment kuno ( diamond peel,laser & facial). Sad to say wlang pinagbago sa face q..pimples are still existing and worst thing it becomes itchy! wla kcng dermatologist na uma-attend sa mga customer,eh ang mga staff mukhang wlang alam sa mga procedures & take note I also experienced the long period of steaming on my face :(
    Can anyone suggest a better facial clinic somewhere here in Zamboanga City.
