“Happy skin day! Be in the pink!”
Not even the world’s strongest storm could dampen the spirit of everyone who came to celebrate Dermclinic’s 42nd Anniversary in SM Megamall on the afternoon of November 8, 2013.
Dr. Vinson B. Pineda, the acknowledged “Father of Philippine Dermatology” and recognized as the country’s top dermatologist, founded Dermclinic in 1971. Having experienced the ordeal of acne problems in his youth, Dr. Pineda made it a mission to bring the right skin care to every Filipino.
For 42 years, Dermclinic has revolutionized skin care by providing high-quality dermatological products and services that are second-to-none. As the pioneer in mall-based skin clinics in the Philippines, Dermclinic dedicated itself in bringing the best aesthetic results through the safest and advanced medical techniques.
“Dermclinic is a professional and ethical clinic, manned by professional dermatologists,” emphasized Dr. Pineda. “We have doctors.”
Backed by fully certified professional and rigorously trained dermatologists, and continuously investing in state-of-the-art medical equipment and research, Dermclinic remains the top-of-mind dermatological center in the Philippines with 18 branches nationwide.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Or so the old adage says.
In 2011, when “having whiter skin is beautiful” was the norm, Dermclinic raised a lot of eyebrows—and questions—when 2010 Miss Universe 4th Runner-up Venus Raj, a dark-skinned beauty, was announced as its brand ambassador. “Dermclinic is the first dermatological clinic who accepted the natural beauty in me. Kayo po ang mga unang naniwala na ang ganitong kulay pala ay maganda,” recalled Ms. Raj.
“Health radiates beauty,” enthused Dermclinic Sales and Marketing Manager, Jillen Oasan. As embodied by its anniversary theme “Be in the Pink,” Dermclinic has always believed that beauty, in the eye of every beholder, is defined by having a healthy and glowing skin.
42 Successful Years
“I grew up idolizing Dr. Pineda not only because he is a world-renowned dermatologist—but also because of his immeasurable passion to be a channel of God’s blessing to other people,” shared Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Director General Joel Villanueva. “This day reminds us of God’s goodness and faithfulness,” he added.
Dr. Pineda, aside from wearing the CEO’s hat of Dermclinic, is also a Senior Pastor of the MM Light of the World Church. He attributes his and Dermclinic’s success to God.
“In the 42 years of our existence as one of the top dermatological institutions, we are successful because of God’s approval,”declared Dr. Pineda. “We are going to increase and be prosperous because that is God’s plan for us.”
As witnessed by partners from ABS-CBN, Manila Bulletin, Business Mirror, New You Magazine, and the PR group Allouata, as well as the entire Dermclinic family—there’s no stopping at 42. Life is indeed more beautiful with Dermclinic.
