We are once told that us Filipina have lesser chance to get older. Well look at my mom. She looks younger than other moms out there (technically look younger than me.) But I also believe that the fast-paced environment we’re living today can also set for us to live older, both physical and mentally. The more stress and prone we are to unhealthy lifestyle can trigger us also to look older than what our skin supposed to age. These things can trigger us low self-esteem and give us feeling of not embracing and expressing our true beauty according to our own terms.
By fusing the science and art of beauty, women can have a better grasp of the possibilities they face. Stepping up to this is Menarini, Italy’s largest bio-pharmaceutical company with more than 130 years of medical experience, which has developed a revolutionary new approach to medical aesthetics. They took to heart the innovation and insights that bring life to the confidence movement, and the Menarini Group eventually launched RELIFE, a new worldwide company that specializes in dermatology and aesthetic medicine.
With its global headquarters in Florence, Italy; the cradle of the Renaissance; RELIFE draws on its dual scientific and artistic heritage to create beauty. Its science-based products and treatment protocols reflect its scientific heritage while the company’s concept of conscious innovation embodies its artistic heritage. “Gone are the days when women are ashamed or afraid to try new products and even cosmetic procedures. Filipinas are very particular about how they look, and they want to be sure that they go for the best especially when it comes to their body.” says Menarini Group’s Medical Affairs Doctor, Dr. Grace Nilo. “Now that the Menarini Group has arrived in the Philippines, we’re here to provide revolutionary aesthetic medicine that will empower people to be the most beautiful and confident versions of themselves”.
Showing the beauty within
RELIFE believes the skin mirrors your well-being. That’s why RELIFE offers healthcare practitioners (HCPs) a holistic approach to aesthetic medicine giving a natural-looking, youthful appearance. This is achieved with a combination of unique products and treatment techniques developed in collaboration with leading HCPs/ specialists and the global scientific community. RELIFE will always listen to the needs of patients and HCPs, to provide the best-in-class product and value-added support services. The RELIFE aesthetic range consist of two core products:
Happy Lift suspension threads
Happy Lift is a patented line of absorbable, monofilament, suspension barbed threads designed to lift and hold soft and/or sagging facial tissues for a refreshed look and more defined facial contours. Happy Lift is made of unique materials poly-L-lactic acid and caprolactone. Unlike some conventional sutures which are smooth, Happy Lift threads have tiny barbs. Once inserted into the skin, these tiny barbs stimulate the fibroblasts to synthesize the extracellular matrix and collagen in the skin that act as scaffolding to lift and hold soft facial tissues in place, giving longer-lasting results than most other kinds of sutures.
SKINFILL hyaluronic acid fillers
SKINFILL is developed based on the patented COESIX® Plus technology, an effective cross-linking technology that allows the filler to be optimally balanced between duration and moldability. SKINFILL is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the human body and cross-linked with butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) for increased stability. Together with collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is responsible for the skin’s youthful appearance. SKINFILL is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restore lost volume, and reshape facial features.
RELIFE provides HCPs with the knowledge, training, and products they need to cater to their patients’ desires while adhering to a standardised educational platform ICME (Innovation and Consciousness in Medical Education). RELIFE prides itself on being a brand patients and HCPs can rely on and trust to:
1. Provide patient-centred care with a science-based approach
2. Develop and manufacture safe and effective products
3. Work with HCPs to bring conscious innovation and solutions to meet patients’ needs
4. Partner with scientific and medical communities to develop and deliver continuous medical education
Passing on the smiles
As RELIFE begins its launch in six key Asia-Pacific markets this year, they have commissioned a series of seven paintings called the Masterpieces of Beauty by a rising star in the Asian art world, Monica Hapsari. All the paintings will incorporate Asian perceptions of beauty tastefully combined with the Renaissance concepts of science and art. At the end of each of the i-DASS launch events in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines, all the paintings from the Masterpieces of Beauty series will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to Smile Train, a global alliance of charities working together to share beauty and happiness by giving children with cleft lip and cleft palate back their smiles and confidence.
