Feel Good And Look Good With The Medical City’s Acclaimed Aesthetics Center
Who says beauty is only skin-deep? At Aesthetics by The Medical City, beauty comes from within, as the integrated Wellness and Aesthetics Institute takes a holistic approach to caring for its clients, paying mind to all aspects of their health.
This year, the Wellness and Aesthetics Institute celebrates a decade of making men and women feel beautiful, inside and out, and marks this milestone with a re-launch of its aesthetics center, now called Aesthetics by The Medical City, that has truly achieved world-class standard and has since delivered unembellished successful results for its clients.
Tucked in a private wing at The Medical City, the institute guarantees unparalleled care and attention from a highly capable team of board-certified physicians and specialists. The Medical City is accredited by the Joint Commission International, which is considered the gold standard in global healthcare. As such, patients throughout the entire hospital are assured of the safety and highest quality in healthcare services and machinery, including aesthetics procedures and wellness programs.
With a highly trained team, the Wellness and Aesthetics Institute ensures that the client’s wellbeing comes first, and is priority every step of the way and in every procedure and treatment, no matter how small.
All treatments, procedures, and surgeries are conducted within the Aesthetics Center for total privacy and safety from airborne and cross-contamination. There are two dedicated operating rooms for aesthetics within the center, “so you don’t need to worry about being mixed in with the main hospital patients who would have other issues that are not aesthetic.” In fact, should surgeons require clients to stay in the hospital post-procedure, they may opt to be admitted at the Aesthetic/Wellness Unit located in the institute, a complex separate from the hospital, which allows continued privacy all throughout the recovery process, as well as reduced risk from contamination.
Beyond a team and facility that are among the best in the world, as well as complete discretion and privacy guaranteed, the institute must be commended the most for its holistic attitude towards wellness and beauty.
“We take a multipronged approach,” explains Dr. Krisinda Dim-Jamora, head of Aesthetics by The Medical City, “and we cater to any age as a multi-generational facility. I believe that in the Philippines, we are the only hospital-based center to do that.”
“Under the umbrella of the Aesthetics Center, we offer dermatology, aesthetics surgery (plastic surgery, including ocular plastic surgery), vascular surgery (focuses on unsightly veins), bariatric surgery and weight management, as well as aesthetic gynecology reportedly coming in soon. However, it does not stop there—we’re not just taking care of the exterior. As an integrated wellness institute, we believe that beauty comes from within, and we are in this for the long haul,” adds Dr. Dim-Jamora.
As such, the center provides other packages and programs designed to bring clients closer to their optimal well-being, allowing them to live their best lives. Every individual is different and so each package is personalized based on age as well as on specific needs, and always begins with an overall check up to see just what needs to be done and helps the team of doctors recommend a program that is tailored to you.
“Aside from aesthetics, we also have non-aesthetics in the center. This include laser for warts that keep coming back, which is actually covered by PhilHealth,” Dr. Dim-Jamora shares.
“If you have hemangiomas, which are the big red birthmarks seen on kids and adults, that can be removed as well. We also have patch testing here which helps pinpoint what is causing a recurring allergy. Then, we also have a procedure called mohs micrographic surgery, which is for skin cancer treatment.”
