Look your best

MANILA, Philippines - At 35, Verona Fujihara finds the need for efficient skin care treatment now that she is at an age when constant skin care is called for. As a sales manager for a publishing company, her job entails a lot of fieldwork that gives her constant exposure to the harmful effects of the sun.

“I noticed that my skin has turned dry. It made me look a bit older than my real age and as time went by, due to stress perhaps, my skin sagged. I had to take necessary action,” says Verona, a mother of three.

For her, choosing the best clinic that will address her concern was crucial. “The price, location even the kind of service that a skin clinic can provide are major considerations,” she says.

Then she came across Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics.  

Shinagawa began as an aesthetic clinic in 1988 in Japan, and has steadily evolved to reportedly become one of the top aesthetic centers in the world. In Japan, Shinagawa has carved a special niche in the field of aesthetic medicine, and has reportedly become one of the top plastic and cosmetic surgery chains. With more than 25 years of experience under its belt and its constant utilization of the latest technology, Shinagawa has enjoyed the patronage of many clients throughout the years with more than three million satisfied patients.

On Verona’s first visit to the clinic, Shinagawa recommended Shrinkage, a skin tightening treatment that helps rejuvenate skin laxity and renovates sagging skin without surgery and injections. Patients who undergo this treatment experience short period of recovery time. 

Skin tightening, according to Dr. Leo Escasa, a dermatologist at Shinagawa, is a procedure by which you can have firmer, smoother skin on the face, arms, legs, abdomen and other parts of the body. Escasa stressed the fact that environmental changes such as humidity, temperature, hormonal variation and other inherent genetic factors can play a significant role in altering the form and texture of the skin. Utilizing Japan’s latest and most advanced technology in skin care essentials today, Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics has designed a three-day genetic regimen that stimulates collagen in the body that restores, repairs and revitalizes dermal cells.

“I am highly satisfied with the treatment I got from Shinagawa especially when friends and family members notice the big change in my skin,” says Verona. “The brand even offered me its skin care products called Celesty  to support the treatment. I am now an avid fan of its foam wash and moisturize.

The Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics clinic in the Philippines is the company’s first major business operation outside Japan. With the establishment of the Manila branch, the company aims to provide the best, safest, most accessible and affordable services not only to Filipinos but to the rest of the world.

Its philosophy is to provide the latest in medical technology to its patients at a very affordable cost, without compromising the quality of patient care.

The skin care company promises “instant result with lasting effect” for individuals who want to look their best.
