In Focus: Must-Try Treatments From Judy Anne, Gretchen, And Kathryn's Go-To Beauty Hideaway

If it would be all up to us, we definitely would love to have at least one whole day booked for all the beauty treatments and enhancements that we want. One good place to spend pamper time is this fave hideaway of Kathryn Bernardo, Gretchen Barretto, Bea Alonzo, Maja Salvador, and many other celebs, the newly-opened A Institute, the holistic complex that now serves as the flagship branch of the Aivee Clinic.

Aivee Clinic began in 2002 as a dermatology clinic that has expanded into four more departments over the years—Regenerative Medicine, Advanced Orthopedics, Cosmetic Surgery, and Hair Restoration. "We realized that our patients also have other needs aside from the skin. They also concerned about body, body treatments, or weight loss treatment." Dr. Aivee Teo said.

Being one of the most sought-after doctors in the dermatology industry, Dr. Aivee shares her formula for patient care and elaborates the difference of Aivee Clinic to others, "Here, we try to integrate all the services, and house them into a luxurious setting where they will feel comfortable and they will also feel at home, so they don't get scared and intimidated when getting the treatment. We don't want a center that is too hospital-like."

No wonder the Teen Queen and many others frequent this place! Here are some must-try treatments we learned about during the A Institute launch:


With Blue Facial, you don’t have to over-strip and dry out your skin to effectively treat acne anymore. In fact, with just a simple light treatment, you can already combat skin flakiness, dryness, and overall skin dullness.


Vaser Shape is a non-surgical procedure for losing fat. It uses a combination of ultrasonic therapy to smoothen the appearance of cellulites. Vaser shape can also help your body’s metabolism by increasing blood circulation in the area being treated. It is perfect for shrinking large areas of the body like the abdomen, thighs, arms, and wings. 


Using a potent TCA formulation with the addition of further skin brighteners, Target Peel offers powerful exfoliation, texture correction, depigmentation, and skin restoration to small areas of the body. Particularly effective in smoothing overly rough skin texture in underarms, elbows, knees, and inguinal area. Whole body peeling can also be done if prior consultation is rendered.


Perfect for sagging eyes, jowls, and neck, Laser tightening is a non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract. One treatment is enough for that real noticeable lift, it lasts up to a year, making Ulthera the preferred treatment of busy clients. However, if patients really want an even more powerful lifting, Ulthera can be done twice per year, every six months, and the results are even better. Here's celebrity actress and mom Judy Ann Santos together with her baby Luna visiting The Aivee Clinic for her Ulthera day. 


Crystal Bright Whitening System is a cutting edge optimized laser device which creates precise and controlled micro channels into the skin for significant lightening and brightening. This procedure uses a precise MNG (Multi-nanosome granulated) technology to create an effective serum fresh without any preservatives. 


Even with diet and exercise, most adults still have stubborn areas of fat that seem impossible to get rid of. But now, with SculpSure X, you can target your problem areas in just a few minutes without surgery, it's a new treatment for non-invasive fat reduction. It's a laser that reduces fat by heating it. This kind of treatment result in noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas. Look who's enjoying the SculpSureX: Actress Gretchen Barretto!


For non-healing wounds, Aivee Clinic also has the Platelet-Rich Plasma and and its potential effectiveness in wounds such as Diabetic foot ulcers that have not shown signs of healing for several months. This treatment jumpstarts the healing process and growth of the surrounding skin and soft tissues.
