Face, Body, Beauty, BELO!Aug 19th, 2008 | By Jeric Peña | Category: Banner Story, Events, Fun, Life, Living
I am not a very vain person who goes to the dermatologist for weekly check-up, facial, and whatnots. Even though skin clinics are present here in our neighborhood, I never had the chance to step inside them and have my face treated. I don’t put moisturizers and other facial creams on my face except for the thing that treats my acne.
We often hear celebrities and other famous people thanking Dr. Vicki Belo in different TV shows. When you hear the name Vicky Belo, what comes in your mind?
Liposuction, breast augmentation, botox, nose lift, face-lift and other surgical services. But did you know that almost 80% of the services offered by the Belo Medical Group are non-surgical? Yes. Dr. Vicky Belo herself confirmed this during a Belo Open House for Bloggers at their Tomas Morato branch last August 16, 2008. Since it’s non-surgical, pain won’t be as much as inserting a catheter. Dr. Hayden Kho Jr. was also present at the event and gave a talk about the different treatments that the Belo Medical Group is offering. One of the newest treatments being offered by the Belo Medical Group is called the Biosculpt.
Biosculpt is an ideal treatment for people who want to shape up without effort. It makes use of the B.E.A.M. technology (Bio Electrical Acceleration Management) to send customized electrical pulses to stimulate and activate specific muscles or muscle groups, increase blood circulation, improve, metabolism, and tone the body where you want it.
Bloggers were able to experience the different treatments such as Visia, Tenor, Inara, Powerpeel to name a few. I was able to try two treatments – the Inara and Power Peel. The Power Peel or microdermabrasion makes use of corundum oxide crystals to gently remove dead skin and a vacuum to stimulate the deeper layers. It is great for acne scars and fine lines. This treatment takes around 20 minutes and can be done once a week.
One of the interesting services they are offering is called Visia. VISIA Digital Skin Analysis is an exciting technological innovation that uses a multi-spectral imaging system to identify problem areas of your complexion, allowing for a customized skin treatment program that specifically targets these areas.
Moreover, The Belo Medical Group launches the Ike and Nena Belo Foundation, a non-profit corporate charity meant to shape lives, with education, surgical assistance and environmental protection as its advocacies.
Dr. Vicki Belo, medical director of the Belo Medical Group, put up the foundation in honor of her parents, lawyer Enrique Belo and wife Florencia, who instilled in her the value of charitable giving. The private foundation was created for the education of needy children, rehabilitation of burned victims, surgery of children with cleft palate and environmental awareness. The core advocacy is geared towards the physical, mental and social welfare of the beneficiaries. The launch of Ike and Nena Belo Foundation comes at an opportune time when the Belo Medical Group is celebrating its 18th anniversary as the country’s top name in the field of dermatology and cosmetic surgery.
