The growth of medical tourism in the Philippines is on the rise because people are increasingly aware of the world-class facilities and services offered by our highly skilled medical professionals. They are well trained locally and abroad, can converse well in English and, always give that extra care Filipinos are known for. One of the services most sought after by tourists, especially by women, is aesthetic services.
However, problems in the aesthetics industry occur when some clinics fail to deliver the desired results of the treatment. This arises when inexperienced aestheticians fail to conduct a proper skin care analysis, are not knowledgeable in the handling the equipment, or are ill equipped to manage side effects. The end result is a disappointed client with damaged skin and an aesthetic industry with poor reputation.
The field of medical aesthetics wants to change all of this. Practioners of medical aesthetics are experts trained in the art and science of clear and healthy skin by using only the safetest and most effective medications and treatments that are well researched and evidence based.
“Many people don’t realize that they have sensitive skin and learn about it when they develop eczema and other skin problems after undergoing a skin treatment or after using a skin product,” said Dr. Clarissa Cellona, MD FPDS, Senior consultant of SkinCell Advanced Aesthetics Clinics, who is a U.S. trained dermatologist specializing in environmental dermatology and skin allergies.
A lot of our skin problems like allergy, pimples, and wrinkles are compounded by our lifestyle and environmental exposure to industrial and commercial pollutants. That is why at SkinCell, a thorough skin analysis is always performed by a board-certified dermatologist before the start of any treatment. SkinCell strives to be at the forefront of the medical aesthetic industry by combining advanced technologies in laser medicine and anti-aging with exclusively formulated medical grade products.
