Clarence Anti-aging, Slimming and Dermatology Center Review

(Me and Dr. Joan Clarence- Morallo)

This is a long overdue post. I was invited to the anniversary of Clarence Slimming and Dermatology Center  a while back. Bloggers and Clients were given the chance to get to know their 3 new machines  : Thermage, Coolsculpting and Soprano which are for anti-aging, fat reduction and permanent hair removal respectively.

Let's get to know them shall we? 


Thermage is a breakthrough non-invasive anti-aging procedure which uses RF technology to stimulate collagen production. What makes it different from all the other treatments out there is that it is safe to use on the face and body and the results are long lasting unlike botox, fillers etc.

Treatment Facts

DurationThermage treatments are typically 45 minutes for eyes or face and up to 90 minutes for larger body areas.
Treatment RegimenOne treatment is all you will need to see and feel real results.
ResultsMost patients can see and feel Thermage results very soon after treatment – in as little as one day.  Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Your body actually produces new collagen which is how the collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. Even better, results can last years. Click here to see real patient Before & After photos >
ComfortBe sure to ask if your doctor has the latest Thermage CPT technology – it adds a gentle vibration sensation and interspersed cooling bursts that give you even more comfort during treatment. You will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. Throughout the procedure, your physician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There's typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.  Hear real patient treatment stories >

Price Php 79k for the whole face cash basis (price is different for creditcard and they have payment plans available)


The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you'll look great from every angle.


Coolsculpting procedure visual before and after

  1. Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
  2. CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target and kill only these fat cells. 
  3. In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. 
  4. CoolSculpting results are long-term,1 as treated fat cells are gone for good.

Fat cells shrink in volume after coolsculpting procedure


It's a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They're not.

When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.

However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can't get bigger.

And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they're gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you'll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.

When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When you gain weight, your fat cells become larger again.

After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens with other procedures, there's no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.

Ok I seriously need to save up for this procedure so I don't have to exercise as much! lol!

I remember asking Dr. Clarence how much this procedure costs and if I'm not mistaken for tummy area it's around Php 19k per session cash basis (price is different for creditcard and they have payment plans available)

Soprano SHR (Diode) Laser Hair Removal 

Innovative technologies for more comfortable treatments

The Soprano Pain-Free, Hair-Free laser hair removal treatment works by safely and gently heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicle and prevents re-growth, yet does not injure the surrounding skin.

Technologies used for Soprano Pain-Free, Hair-Free treatments include:

  • Gold standard 810-nm laser diode
  • IN-Motion
  • DualChill™

Gold standard 810-nm laser diode

Soprano Family uses an 810-nm diode laser technology, the gold standard in laser hair removal since its introduction in 1998. Unlike earlier systems, however, Soprano energy penetrates deep into the dermis where the hair follicle is located, delivering high average power and a rapid 10 pulse-per-second repetition rate.

For permanent hair reduction- 4-6 treatments are typically needed.

Price differs depending on the area to be treated. 
Regular price is Php 1650 per session for one of these areas- underarms, upper lip, bikini line or brazilian. 
Php 3500 per session for half legs and Php 5000 for whole legs 
Promo for this month is  Buy 3 get 2 treatments FREE!!!

I was given a chance to try their Soprano machine and I liked it so much that I have decided to continue with my treatments. I will post a more in-depth review once I am done with the treatment so watch out for that :)

All in all I am very pleased with their services and the staff. Their treatments are very reasonably priced and they have such a professional and caring staff. I highly recommend them if you're looking for quality services at affordable prices! I am most definitely coming back for more :)

Do make sure to call them to schedule an appointment beforehand since they can get fully booked pretty easily especially on weekends (a sure sign of great service!)
