'It Girls' and how they got it

CONVERSATIONS - The Philippine Star

It’s not enough to be born beautiful. You have to do something to keep yourself that way.

Ask Isabelle Daza, Solenn Heussaff and Georgina Wilson who are collectively known as “It Girls” of The Belo Medical Clinic, featured in giant billboards all over the metropolis that have been turning heads and stalling traffic.

Their answer is simple: “We entrust ourselves to Belo.”

They have to, especially since they are constantly under the scrutiny of the public, making them apply make-up frequently. They are also constantly exposed to bright lights, and stay up until the wee hours of the morning.

Some of the It Girls’ favorite facial procedures are: Glycopeel Cleaning + Power Peel, Obagi Oxygen Facial and the Hydra Facial.

Dr. Vicki Belo explained how the procedures work:

Glycopeel Cleaning makes use of different concentrations of fruit acid applied on the skin to remove pimples, blackheads and whiteheads and also to exfoliate dead skin. With the Power Peel Skin Treatment program, you can see immediate changes in your skin with noted improvement in age spots, fine lines and flaking skin.

The Obagi Oxygen Facial is a treatment that makes use of powerful anti-oxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Zinc that fight free radicals. These, combined with the anti-inflammatory and healing properties of pure oxygen infused into the skin, help reverse skin damage brought about by bad habits and other environmental factors.

The Hydra Facial Treatment enhances skin complexion and reduces signs of aging. Dead skin cells are exfoliated and impurities are extracted, while the healthy underlying skin is bathed with active serums that cleanse deeply, exfoliate thoroughly, hydrate completely, and provide antioxidant protection. Skin is attractive and inviting to touch when no rough spots and discolored blotches are seen. To keep skin glistening soft, the It Girls undergo Belo Signature Sea Salt Scrubs and Wet and Dry Dermabrasion.

For their bodies, the It Girls rely on Sexy Solutions, a sister company of the Belo Medical Group. Sexy Solutions specializes in all non-surgical modalities for removing fat. Some of the most popular machines are Lipo-Cavitation and Multi-Firm. Lipo-Cavitation destroys fat using ultrasound while Multi-Firm is a treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin using RF energy.

There are also machines that are exclusively available at Sexy Solutions. One such machine is the Tite FX. It emits an HVP Pulse that pulverizes fat while tightening the skin. This machine is very effective for abdominal and back fat. On the other hand, the Ion Magnum machine from London fools the body into burning hundreds of calories by sending signals to the brain which then sends signals to the muscles fooling the body into thinking it’s exercising. The effect is like a one-hour workout routine at the gym, firming the waist and abdomen easily.

Meanwhile, let’s go deeper and find out what lies beneath the It Girls’ flawless skin by letting them do the “Complete it” test.

My most traumatic experience was...seeing my sister go through brain surgery. 

I deal with gossip by...questioning it, then ignoring it. 

The one thing I can’t do without is…Twitter. And maybe now, instagram (@ilovegeorgina), hahahaha!

The type of guy that turns me on is...hilarious, intelligent and extremely kind.

The type of guy that turns me off is...self-centered, untrustworthy and rude. 

My philosophy in life is...Everything happens for a reason. One you might not understand right away and only in hindsight. Sounds cheesy but it makes me believe that there is a plan and I’m being taken care of.
