Here are the 6 Benefits of Microneedling  

1.) Microneedling or referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a process that involves needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin, creating pseudo wounds that prompted our own system to produce the necessary collagen and elastin for the repair of the new “wound” thereby improving the scar. This is a break through revolutionary therapy which is popular with celebrities, and is available at the center.

2.) Painless Technique–  Generous amount of topical anesthesia is applied in the skin thereby making the procedure tolerable and painless.

3.) Youthful look – Treatment introduced fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulates production of new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Atrophic facial scars (chicken pox mark and reducing wrinkles ).

4.) Up to 1,000 times more effective than conventional treatment– Serums that are applied to the skin are up to 1,000 times more absorbed because of the “tiny” holes created by microneedling.

5.) Smoothing of scars and reducing stretch marks – As a result of the treatment, the skin thickness being increased up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks enlarge pores, or pitting acne / chicken pox marks and reducing wrinkles

6.) Affordable – Compared to using other treatments and going to other derm clinic, Skinfitness Center offers affordable package.

Note: People who undergo the procedure can expect some redness depending on the individual response. Some overnight but some can last up to couple days post procedure as a result of all the skin stimulation, but it subsides quickly as the healing begins and the results of a more glowing skin start to show.

Sitting is the New Smoking at the 49th PHA Annual Convention

 Sitting for around eight hours a day, having a sedentary lifestyle at the workplace increases the risk of contracting heart disease, cancer and diabetes by 40 percent. Actually, it can cause killer legs, too. 

This was one of the revelations presented by leading experts in the industry at the 49th PHA convention held at EDSA Shangrila Hotel .

The simplest guideline for all of us would have to be, “Sit less and move more, ”  according to close to 2,000-member Philippine Heart Association (PHA) and  the  husband and wife tandem of  fitness gurus,  Jim and Toni Saret.

Yes, there’s a direct relationship between time spent sitting and your risk of early mortality of any cause. As your total sitting time increases, so does your risk of an early death.

Health advocates and practitioners requires a person to have brisk walking at least 30 minutes to an hour everyday.

Majority of the world population is in the working age-group. This group are always on the computer.  Glued on their seats for eight hours, they lead sedentary lifestyles, while facing different kinds of stress which leads to unhealthy eating (stress eating) and lifestyle. Most of them are unable to engage in appropriate physical activities for their physical and mental well-being.  in worse cases, some do not have the means to cope with stress and maintain mental health.

Eating healthy, exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding vices like alcohol and cigarettes are ways of preventing major lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancers as well as other risk factors such as raise blood pressure, raise blood sugar level and  obesity. However, awareness and practices of these healthy benefits are still low among the working population.

The Philippine Heart Association (PHA), a non-stock, non-profit organization of 1,780 Filipino cardiologists is committed to foster exceptional cardiovascular education and primary care for everyone. Living up to its mission, the PHA aims to do its share on the awareness on preventive and management of heart diseases. The initiative encourages employees to improve their physical and mental well-being, and effectively address sedentary lifestyles by launching a campaign called “Sneakers Friday.”

“Sneakers Friday” capitalizes on promoting physical activity. It is meant to promote workplace health and wellness where personnel are encouraged to wear sneakers, casual top and pants every Friday as a “dress down day.”

In order to obtain a healthy lifestyle, it is important to incorporate wellness in all aspects of one’s life, including the workplace. Corporate wellness generates many positive outcomes for their employees as well as the company itself. Even a simple activity such as walking (or brisk walking, with100 steps per minute) has so many powerful health benefits. When done correctly and regularly, it can be the key to losing weight, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and boosting your memory as well as reducing your risk for developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer and more. Walking could be done effortlessly without interrupting corporate work. One can also choose to take the stairs rather than ride the elevator or when one parks the car, choose the farthest end so you’d have more time to walk.

The “Sneakers Friday” initial campaign got off the ground spearheaded by medical professionals and cardiovascular experts themselves in November of 2017 with the Makati Medical Center as its launching site, followed by The Medical City where every last weekday was officially declared as “Sneakers Friday.”
