[YAKSON] YAKSON GANGNAM, SOUTH KOREA BRANCH / MAKATI BEAUTY EDITOR / YAKSON BRANCH / FREE CARE



[YAKSON] YAKSON GANGNAM, SOUTH KOREA BRANCH / MAKATI BEAUTY EDITOR / YAKSON BRANCH / FREE CARE




During my travel in South Korea this March, I am fortunate to have one of my sessions in Yakson Gangnam branch located at Hoya Building, Gangnamdaero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul. As you know, Yakson has so many branches in Korea.

I took the subway in going there. Since I came from Sookmyung Women’s University station which is at line 4, I need to transfer to Sadang station at line 2 because it is the connecting line to Gangnam station. Below is the quick guide map and the subway details.
Actually, this is very accessible since it was just few minutes walk from Gangnam Subway Station. Their place is found at the 4th floor of the building. You may opt to take the elevator or take the stairs.
My appointment is at 2PM. Yakson staffs greeted me (in Korean, of course!)  warmly when I arrived. I wonder if they knew I am a foreigner but I managed to speak in Korean as well.
I asked them to take my photo at the reception area for documentation purposes. I was wearing these thick winter clothes because it was around 2 degrees Celsius in Korea.

They asked me right away what kind of service do I want to avail. I said I want the face resizing care (얼굴 축소 곤리). Then, one of the staffs guided me to the dressing room to change my clothes and secure my things. The staff told me the passwords for my assigned locker.
Inside the locker, there is an unused robe and disinfected slippers. I really like their robe. The color is very classy and they also have the same color for the slippers wherein Yakson’s brand name was written. They also have different lockers to secure the customers’ clothes and other valuable things. The place where I took this selfie was the shower room inside the dressing area.

In this branch, they have different sequence for the face resizing care. First, they had my back massage. I could say that they have similar massage with the therapists in the Philippines. However, there were some strokes which were different a little. After that, they did facial cleansing. They applied cold cream to my face then hot compress to clean it up. It was followed by the Golki therapy which lasted for around 20 minutes.

During this golki therapy part, the therapist asked me many things. It was good because we were conversing in Korean! What a great time to practice my listening and speaking skills.
After the golki therapy, it was preceded by a facial massage and a hot and cold stone treatment for the pores.  Lastly, they had a cold compress and put facial mask on my face for 15 minutes.  To conclude the facial resizing care treatment, the facialist asked me to choose if I want to put sunscreen, moisturizer or BB cream. The duration of this session lasted for 2 hours.

I really enjoy this session in Gangnam. Not only I was able to relax for 2 hours, I was able to experience Yakson in the most Korean way (in Korea with Koreans). I am so glad and satisfied with the services I received.  🙂
