“She promised. She promised there’s no injection. She promised it will be a quick procedure, and she promised I will see immediate results. She promised and she Delivered.
So that’s why it’s sort of saying, it’s a promise delivered to a client like me who’s very busy. I feel good about myself and I want you to feel good about yourself also.”
This was the statement of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso referring to his Belo Thermage FLX procedure performed on him by no less than the founder and CEO of the Belo Medical Group, Dr. Vicki Belo. The Manila Mayor, who admitted he’s scared of injections and is sometimes shy to admit he goes to a beauty clinic, openly encouraged busy men like him who don’t have time for themselves to try the Belo Thermage FLX.
“Gravity will win as you age. I can honestly say to my colleagues and to my age bracket, it’s time. It’s time to take Thermage. This is for us,” Moreno said.
Dr. Belo said the Thermage FLX is really perfect for men on-the-go like Mayor Isko because it only takes 35 minutes, has immediate results, and delivers a long-term effect. So men can just visit the clinic at least once a year and get back to their busy schedules the rest of the year while looking their very best.
Dr. Belo said Yorme used to have deeper lines that have now become shallow. When she pinched his skin, there’s less to pinch now than before. Also, Mayor Isko’s jawline has become more prominent and his eyes more open. “I didn’t want to fix everything. I just want a refreshed look and I got what I wanted. I feel good about it. Kumpyansa ako,” the Mayor replied.
Dr. Belo said the partnership with Mayor Isko Moreno came about because the Manila Mayor is also passionate in showing the whole world that the Philippines is world-class. “I know we’re third world but we are first class in dermatology. So when I meet a person who has that same love and who wants to taas the bandilang Pilipino, I feel it in my bones and that’s what I felt with Mayor Isko. Put it together somehow, love for Philippines, Belo Medical Group being around 30 years trying to make a dent in the world, trying to make the country a beauty destination, parang I feel a kinship,” Dr. Belo said.
The Manila Mayor added he believes the Philippines can be globally competitive, “we have the same technology and training, institutions like the Belo Medical Group are proof that Filipinos are world class and first class.”
The launch ended with an announcement from Dr. Belo that the Belo Medical Group is donating P500,000 pesos to the Philippine Red Cross to help with relief efforts for the victims of the Taal eruption.
“Because we all want to help… this is not going to be a superficial presscon. But rather it’s also a way that… together we can help and we will continue to help you. We are all here,” Dr. Belo said.
The press launch was held at the Rizal Park Hotel in Manila as suggested by Mayor Isko, who wants to showcase the many beautiful locations in Manila that’s worth visiting.
