Ellen's Aesthetic Center
Skincare from generation to generation
By Demi Braque
The days leading to Christmas all bring a renewed sense of hope and glad tidings to family, friends, and even work colleagues. When the ‘Ber months begin, with it comes the joyous holiday spirit and the promise it brings.
Should you celebrate these festive occasions in a big locality like Metro Manila, the possibilities just seem endless. And if we speak of Manila, nothing comes to mind first but the smog that pervades the air; a condition that affects bodily systems, most especially the skin.
Throughout the years, Ellen’s has been the prime destination for skin-conscious city dwellers primarily because of its time-tested and quality services as evidenced by the increasing number of satisfied clientele. This Yuletide month, Ellen’s is giving a 50% markdown – yes, that’s half-the-price slash down – for all major services except the basic facial. These include both aesthetic and surgical procedures. “I want to reach out to the mass market so they get to try the Ellen’s pampering touch. Although we are very affordable, our X’mas promo will make it even more so,” invited the vivacious Ellen Lising, president & CEO of the Ellen’s Aesthetic Center chain.
Immerse yourself in any of its many skin care treatment options like the Diamond Peel, Laser Facial, Skin Photo Rejuvenation, RF Facial, Acne Facial, Oxypeel, Facial with Hard Mask, Meso Facial, Cavitation, Tri-Polar and Jet Peel. You may also want to try their whitening treatments like the Body Micropeel and White Glow Underarm procedure.
Those who may opt for invasive procedures can go for options like liposuction, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, breast lift or enlargement, eyelid surgery, and face lift; as well as non-invasive procedures like dermabrasion, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell lipo. And there are the permanent cosmetics choices that have made the brand popular: cosmetic tattoo correction, eyelash perming, eyeliner, eyebrow, and lip coloring.
“Beauty is a gift to all of us that, more often than not, we take for granted and don’t give it the necessary care it needs. It’s about time we take care of it and even enhance it. We should never stop beautifying ourselves so we mature gracefully. We do not owe it to anyone but ourselves.
"At Ellen's Aesthetic Center, we take that challenge and bring it a step further. We welcome each one to make that personal connection as we are committed to make you look and feel beautiful. We have been in the business for 35 years now and our commitment has stayed the same. After all, beauty knows no age, gender, race nor status,” she continued.
Ellen’s, is doubtless, the best place to be pampered and stay beautiful with its affordable rates and comfortable treatment rooms equipped with state-of-the-art equipment handled by highly-trained and competent staff.
“Our brand name is equated with quality. While a lot of other beauty clinics have surfaced in the past few years, we are different from the rest as we have maintained our quality of service to continue the mark we created. As owner too, I’m hands-on with the business. Board-certified doctors do the invasive procedures while myself and my staff do our forte, which is permanent cosmetics. I assure you that we never tread on anything that’s not our expertise.
“What the Lord gave for what you do for a living, do it with all your heart so it gives you a sense of pride. If there are things that are better left as they are, never tamper them,” intimated the celebrated aesthetician.
Enjoy unparalleled holiday packages for the Christmas and New Year seasons in any of the ten Ellen’s branches in the country. “In any undertaking, there will always be a changing of the old guards. I’m passing the baton to my daughters Janice Lising-Go and Jessel Lising-Ocampo to continue the Ellen’s legacy of beauty. Together we share our expertise to meet the challenges of the 21st century. My traditional approaches will be melded with those of my daughters’ dynamism and thirst for exploration especially with new products and technologies,” she concluded.
Actresses Jackie Rice and Sheena Halili as well as beauty queen Cindy Miranda (Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2013) are some of the beautiful faces that Ellen’s have touched and maintained.
