Living in a metropolis like Metro Manila gives cityphiles possibilities and opportunities that just seem endless. However, 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 includes male clients, who have dramatically increased in number through the years (now comprising 40 per cent of the total client base). And on the occassion of Ellen’s 38th anniversary celebration, Ellen is giving a 50% markdown – yes, that’s half-the-price slash down – for all major services, except the basic facial, in all of her branches.
”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 anniversary promo will make it even more so. There’s a misconception that we are pricey when we are not,” 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.
”Also try our latest beauty products such as the Botox Cream, Amazing Gel, slimming beverages, the Miracle Cream, and the Pigmentation Removal Cream that takes care of new skin discolorations so you get your even-toned complexion back.”
Those who may opt for invasive procedures at the Timog branch 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. “Aside from our 3D and HD machines, we only use organic pigments that never discolor. And though they may fade by the passage of time, it remains the same color that’s easy to retouch and oftentimes you can do it yourself.”
”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 38 years now and our commitment has stayed the same. After all, beauty knows no age, gender, race nor status. However, you may not achieve the results you want if the beauty routine or cosmetics you are using do not jibe with your treatments, external and internal. Both must be in perfect synch to work.
”I treat my work and my staff as family too. Trust your staff so that even when you’re not around, they’ll do their very best at work,” 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 devices handled by highly-trained and competent staff. “The Cryo Lift and the HyFu are two of the latest anti-aging devices from Korea that are part of our hi-tech equipment. Never invest in equipment that you’re not going to need or those that have not been tried and/or tested
”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 in the Timog clinic 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.
”Even clients who are now based in the US, and who continually use our beauty products attest to their efficacy. We at Ellen’s are very careful in what we do. If you go wrong in doing a hair style or treatment, you can cut it and let it grow again. But if you make a mistake on the face, or any part thereof like the eyebrows, it gives a great blow to a woman’s morale. Like an ink blot, what people see is that tiny speck in an entire sheet of white.
”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. Our forte is the face. When a lady is happy with her face, all else follows. She observes proper diet, maintains optimum health and wellbeing, and flaunts her fashion sense,” intimated the celebrated aesthetician.
Enjoy unparalleled beauty packages, updated for the 38th anniversary, in any of the thirteen 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. Despite our fruitful 38 years, learning should continue, especially on trends and new technologies.
”Daughters take after their mothers. They are your shadows. What they see in you while growing up, they’ll do with their children too.” she concluded.
Jessel will be taking over the reins of the Tutuban Mall and Sta. Lucia branches, while Janice will be heading the operations for the Greenhills branch and the soon-to-open Bonifacio Global City branch. The Lising sisters have both completed their certificate courses in Medical Aesthetics, and have continuously undergone special beauty courses in Malaysia, Thailand, and Korea.
Actresses Glaiza de Castro, Dexter Dori and Jessy Salvador as well as beauty queens Cindy Miranda (Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2013), Miss Int’l Melanie Marquez, and Miss World runner-up Evangeline Pacual are some of the beautiful faces that Ellen’s have touched and maintained through the years. Ditto actors Allen Dizon and Carlo Aquino. Enjoy Ellen’s anniversary promo rates from June 15 - 20, 2017.
