Aesthetic and Wellness Center Gains Notoriety with Grand Opening of 11th Clinic and First Mall Branch

Passion and dreams fuel endless progress.


Ms. Krystal Tecson- Garalde, Dear Self CEO and Ms. Sai Evangelista, leads the new clinic’s ribbon-cutting event at SM MarketMall Dasmarinas

This dedication is continuously displayed by Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center, which opened its 11th clinic in Dasmarinas, Cavite, and, most significantly, opened its first location inside SM Market Mall.

The Tecson Siblings, the family behind this chain of wellness and aesthetic centers, are excited to open their first clinic and provide affordable, high-quality treatments and services to all Caviteños.

“We are thrilled that the best is yet to come. For we believe that nothing is more surprising than bringing out the best version of ourselves. Join us in this unfolding- to be bold, beautiful and best. Thank you for sharing this momentous event with us,” Krystal Tecson-Garalde, Chief Executive Officer of Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center mentioned in her speech during the ribbon cutting ceremony.


 Family, friends and the brand’s top management attends the opening of the first branch at SM MarketMall

The majority of those in attendance agreed that this historic event on January 13 was a milestone, and it was attended by top brand management, clinic employees, family, and friends.

Ms. Tecson-Garalde emphasized the significance of teamwork, enthusiasm, and commitment in reaching this goal. She also emphasized how crucial it is to establish a secure environment for both customers and staff, as this contributes to Dear Self’s rise to prominence in the metro area as a reliable name in beauty and wellness.

“We also take a beautiful walk through our next pages of success for we see the beauty in helping and making our employees and clients realize the path not only to self-care but also to self-love,” Ms, Tecson-Garalde mentioned.

In the afternoon, the ceremonial ribbon-cutting commenced with a heartfelt prayer. After the top management delivered their meanigful speeches, snacks were served to all attendees.

Unbelievable Journey

Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center is, relatively, one of the newest players in the industry. They will celebrate their fourth year this 2024 but the achievement they constantly get is something incredible to the branch owners and top management.


Mr. Wayne Bramida, Dear Self’s Operations Manager hosts the intimate event at the launch of the newest Dear Aesthetic and Wellnes Center’s branch at SM MarketMall Dasmarinas

They took a major risk when they started running the brand during the pandemic. As the saying goes, only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go. What Dear Self has achieved now and continuously attains is definitely the result of them taking the first step during one of the riskiest times to start a business.

Mr. Kenneth Tecson, Chief Marketing Officer of Dear Self, strongly believes that the brand’s business values and the people who started it created a wide chance to achieve this success.

“At the core of Dear Self Aesthetic Center lies a dedication to encouraging self-love, with a firm belief in the unique individuality of each person. Our aim at Dear Self is to instill in all of you the confidence to recognize and appreciate the incredible individuals you are, encouraging the embrace of your beauty from the inside out,” Mr. Kenneth Tecson said.

On the other hand, brand optimization has been part of their brand 2023 that according to Dear Self’s Chief Financial Officer was a really difficult business instance.

“Last year was a difficult one for us. It was two months ago nung inopen ni Dear Self ang next chapter ng journey niya. No one knows kung ano yung ibig sabihin nun that time na nirelaunch natin ang isa sa mga old brands natin. Pero today I am very proud that Dear Self is going inside SM, level up na tayo!” he proudly expressed.

The entire team also discussed the various plans they have for this year and the upcoming years. Among the objectives stated were expanding Visayas, gaining more success through neighboring provinces, and providing new treatments and services using the newest and best equipment.

“New milestones and new successes, these are our continous goals for the brand,” Mr. Christian Tecson ended.

The new Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center branch is located inside the new SM Market Mall, first public-private partnership between a City Government and SM Prime Holdings that features a vertical wet and dry market development complemented by mall facilities.

The ascent of social media physician Doc Roca and her path to a complete makeover

People can now be entertained and influenced thanks to social media. Others, however, have started utilizing social media channels to inform people about particular subjects. Dr. Rocanisah Guro, often known as Doc Roca, advocates for aesthetic medicine on social media.

Doc Roca’s dream was to become a doctor from a young age. She worked as a general physician in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia after earning her medical degree. It hurt her to watch people come to her sick or dying while she was a doctor and make money from it.

Saddened, Doc Roca looked back and saw how difficult the scenario was for her. Her career took a significant change at that point. She came to the realization that her profession needed to alter. Returning to the Philippines after her time overseas, she pursued studies and training in aesthetic medicine.

Under the meticulous tutelage of Dr. Sarah Barba Cabodil of Philippine Anti-Aging Medicine and Clinical Aesthetics (PAMCAS), Dr. Roca honed her skills in aesthetic medicine. In 2022, she opened her clinic. There, she found her true mission and calling.

Named RC Aesthetics & Wellness Clinic, Dr. Roca wants to establish her name in the aesthetic field. The proud CEO of RC Aesthetics & Wellness Clinic shares her commitment extends beyond clinical excellence to fostering holistic well-being. She also discovers that being part of the physical transformation of her patients makes her heart full.

The existence of digital media helps Doc Roca fulfill her mission. Doc Roca and her method of educating people, especially on social media, is approachable, funny, and witty. “I embrace the digital age as a social media influencer, leveraging these platforms to share insights, inspire confidence, and celebrate the harmonious blend of science and art in aesthetic practice”, says Doc Roca.

She finds sharing her knowledge on social media as an act of charity. That is why she keeps posting relatable content regarding aesthetic medicine in a witty manner so people can connect to her. She captures the hearts of the people online.

RC Aesthetics & Wellness Clinic believes beauty builds confidence and it should start from within. Doc Roca has been enthusiastic about creating social media content on how to restore your beauty and gain your confidence back through these flagship services – Rejuran, Bio-Microneedling, and Face Nade.

Rejuran is a concentrated injectable polynucleotide (PN) extract from Wild Salmon DNA that is effective in skin rejuvenation. It helps restore skin health by improving skin’s elasticity and repairing skin damage caused by frequent UV exposure or various chemicals as it allows the skin tissue to heal and return to normal.

For individuals with acne scars and those who want to defy aging, Rejuran is your go-to treatment. This non-surgical treatment restores skin’s health and beauty by removing the deep wrinkles on the face, cheek lines, wrinkles around the eyes and lips as well as other areas besides the face that also need improved elasticity.

It also treats dehydrated skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, and dull skin. It eliminates freckles, blemishes, and dark spots. It minimizes acne scars. It tightens pores for a smoother, clearer face. This treatment will help you achieve younger-looking skin and attain that Korean glass skin you ought to have.

Biomicroneedling is a treatment that stimulates the body’s scar-healing response and increases cell renewal. The creation of collagen and elastin is initiated as your skin heals, giving you an almost instant plumping effect. This treatment is best for any type and many skin problems such as acne, scarring, dark spots, sun exposure, fine lines, and wrinkles. It can also treat stretch marks on the body.

Biomicroneedling can also treat multiple skin issues simultaneously. In just five minutes, three (3) million natural microneedles are delivered into the skin’s epidermis and dermis.

This treatment is half the cost of laser resurfacing. Safe and effective, this treatment is suitable for every skin color and type. It nourishes every layer of the skin. It does not need anesthetic. It does not cause bleeding or skin breakage. Moreover, it does not require the use of machines or metal needles. Those who have acne problems, experiencing hyperpigmentation and scarring as well as those who have aging skin can avail themselves of this wonderful treatment.

This treatment is ideal for those who wish to attain a more toned, Barbie-like face. Spain’s Face Nade is a sophisticated facial sculpting device. In order to create smoother facial definition, this expert, cutting-edge mesotherapy treatment for face contouring contains active chemicals that have been extensively investigated. These ingredients help break down facial fat, prevent the creation of new fat, and reinforce skin structure.

Its dual action efficiently reshapes the facial contour by strengthening and firming the skin structure while also promoting waste evacuation. Additionally, this procedure redefines the contours of the face and improves facial harmony and balance.

Retinoid Molecule, the Newest Acne Treatment, is Now Available in the Philippines


Galderma Execom (from left to right: Khen Kon- Head of Medical JPAC, Barby Razon-Buenaventura- Brand Manager Philippines, Jade Ponoc, Rajeev Chavda-Head of Global Medical Affairs – Prescription, Luke Lee- JPAC Business Unit Head- Prescription, Ferdinand Roxas- General Manager, Philippines)

You’re not the only one who has ever felt self-conscious about having acne! Did you know that acne is the most frequent skin ailment in the Philippines? Over 17 million people, both young and elderly, are impacted. Acne can cause discomfort and embarrassment. Particularly among teenagers, it can have an effect on relationships, happiness, and self-worth.

According to clinical research, over 50% of individuals with facial acne also had acne on their shoulders, backs, and chest. Patients spend time and money on goods for therapy and good hygiene. The good news is that acne can be resolved with the right care and early intervention.

Patients should consult a board-certified dermatologist for safe and efficient prescription treatments, such as the most recent advancement in retinoid therapy—trifarotene cream.

For acne on the face, shoulders, and back, this novel topical single-agent retinoid cream has been shown to be both safe and effective. The retinoid ingredient found in trifarotene cream helps the skin replace its old skin cells more quickly, thereby removing the old cells and avoiding the formation of new pimples. Trifarotene reduces inflammation and targets the key variables that produce acne by selectively binding to the most common receptor in the skin, the retinoic acid receptor gamma (RAR-y).

Trifarotene is the first new retinoid molecule to receive FDA approval for treating acne in over 25 years. It offers both dermatologists and acne patients a safe and effective prescription acne medication for the face, back, chest, and shoulders. Galderma, a world leader in developing innovative and safe dermatologist-approved skincare solutions, now brings Trifarotene to the Philippines market.  The same company gave the world well-loved brands like Cetaphil, Benzac, and Restylane, among many others. With the addition of Trifarotene to its portfolio, the company further cements its claim as one of the most innovative dermatologist-recommended skincare-focused companies in the world today.

Only properly licensed medical professionals, mostly dermatologists, may prescribe trifarotene, which is advised for patients 12 years of age and above.
