Substance Laser & Skincare: Holy Grail Laser Experience

I and some beauty and lifestyle bloggers graced the Substance Laser & Skincare Grand Launch last August 2018. The launching party is really filled with people of substance that’s why I was not able to try any services on the same day.

It took me months before I tried their service because I waited for the time that I’m available to visit Ortigas. Since Marco Polo Hotel is the venue for my computer based IELTS exam, I made sure to drop by Substance Laser & Skincare! After all, Robinsons Galleria is just few blocks away from Marco Polo Hotel. 

The Holy Grail Laser

The Holy Grail Laser is one of their Signature Remedies. It is known as the Q-Switch Laser Toning Treatment. This laser lightens age spots and freckles. The procedure is non-invasive, FDA-approved and effective in treating problems about pigmentation, acne marks, dull skin, and pimples.

  • Treatment Duration: 15 minutes
  • Treatment Price: ₱3800 ($73)


1. If it’s your first time, the staff will ask you to fill out a Patient Registration Form. You need to provide some details about your skin care and issues about your skin.

2. First the therapist will clean your face, then the laser treatment will begin. Watch my Facebook Live using this link.

It’s not my first time to have a laser treatment. In fact, I just had my third session of diode laser hair removal in my underarm. I am aware that there’s a tingling sensation during the laser treatment.

On the other hand, it’s my first time to try laser on my face. I would say it’s more painful than I expected. I guess the skin on the face is more sensitive than underarm LOL. During the treatment, I can smell something burning. Apparently, my whiteheads are burning! I’ve seen it when I looked at the mirror. There are some black substance on my face.

  • I booked an appointment using phone. The operator is knowledgeable and provided the information that I need.
  • Ms. Rose, the therapist, gave me clear and sufficient information on what to do and what to expect after the procedure. I also like how she massages my face!
  • When I went there, the doctor is on leave. I was not able to have any consultation.

The place is clean, cozy, and comfortable. I would say it’s classy.

I think that the Holy Grail Laser Treatment is not a one stop solution to fight your skin problems. It will take more than one session to see the ultimate results. As for me, I would say that my face felt clean after the treatment. My pimples, and whiteheads were burned. They all dried up. However, the next day I’ve noticed some breakouts. Maybe it’s just an initial reaction for first timers.

    Did you return for the second session? Do they have other non-treatments like dermal fillees or botox treatment?

  4. I have yet to try this kind of skin treatment. Thanks for sharing your experience. It makes me want to try it soon.

  5. i should try this skin treatment soon, never pa ako nakapagtry kasi. would you recommend din yan sa never pa nagpalaser treatment? and how many laser treatment sessions need?

  6. I wanted to try this… i really need it cause i breakout a lot 🙁 hope this suits me though because i have tried a lot but nothing seems to work

  7. Haven’t tried any type of skin laser before so everything about this is so new to me! I’d love to try this soon as well. Also, I never thought it would be this affordable!

  8. This is so interesting! I’m glad you had a good experience and would definitely consider it for birthmarks and such. Not sure I would trust a laser of any kind on my face though.

  9. I’ve never tried laser treatments. I do believe in good skin – facials & a string skin regime is important

  10. Seems good. Never tried laser skincare. Thought it was only for those with acne-prone skin.

  11. This sounds like a nice alternative to a regular facial to do a deep clean now and then. I know I have sun damage on my face so I would love to do this to fade the freckles!

  12. I don’t know if I would be a fan of laser treatment but maybe if I had a need to then I would feel totally different. Great to hear about positive experiences though!

  13. I was always thinking of trying out laser treatment for a long time now. Your experience encourage me a lot to go for it.

  14. I haven’t tried laser treatments before. But I have head that they have so many benefits.

  15. wait, so you could get $73 for laser experience in the philippines? that’s super affordable, and it looks like it works quite well! in indonesia, particularly in jakarta, laser experience could cost slightly more than that. that’s why i’ve never tried it personally. too broke to get one! 😛

  16. Never knew about holy grail laser experience. Now that I read about it, I wondered when this procedure will be available in the rest of the countries? As it does sound safe, but cannot say much more than this.
