“It’s not about age, but how you want to look like,” Dr. Gerald Sy told The Manila Times when asked at what age should a person start considering undergoing some aesthetic procedures.
The plastic and reconstructive surgeon at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center says the first thing he tells his patients is to look at themselves at the mirror and think about what they like and don’t like about their face. “Each one of us have our own concept of beauty, so it would be wrong for us doctors to tell them what procedures they should undergo. What we do is ask them what they want to improve and give some suggestions,” he adds.
Sy adds, “Aesthetic procedures, isn’t about being vain but making you look and feel good about yourself. For young people it’s about enhancing their facial features while older ones need it for rejuvenation.”
For these procedures most doctors trust Allergan as it brings the science of rejuvenation in the Philippines to another level with the introduction of its latest medical aesthetic breakthrough, Juvederm Voluma with Lidocaine.
It has been specifically developed to restore lost facial volume, particularly in the cheek area or to enhance where there is volume deficit like the chin. In addition, it uses patented “Vycross Technology,” providing better lift and longevity of results.
With hyaluronic acid as its key ingredient, Juvéderm Voluma advanced formulation helps temporarily restore facial volume that has diminished due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss.
“Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, biodegradable complex sugar found in the human body. It is noted for its volumizing and hydrating properties, which stem from its ability to retain water and absorb more than 1,000 times its weight,” Sy explained.
Allergan Country Manager Seungje Cho also shared, “We are very pleased to bring Juvéderm to the Philippines. We are sure that the market will welcome its results, which are immediate, long-lasting and natural in appearance.”
Administered by a trained physician through injection, it caters to individuals seeking facial rejuvenation, enhancement, contouring or volumizing such as fuller cheeks or greater nose definition.
