For one night, Dr. Vicki Belo and her Belo Medical Group (BMG) ditched their white coats and instead wore long gowns, cocktail dresses and tuxedos for the launch of beauty enhancement procedure Ultherapy II held at Makati Shangri-La.

BMG—the first clinic to bring laser technology for surgical and nonsurgical beauty procedures in the Philippines—
likewise debuted the Ultherapy system here.

Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure that “provides a gradual and gentle lift on the eyebrows, neck and decolletage by smoothening lines and wrinkles,” said Vicki. “It uses the power of ultrasound, which helps in the development of collagen, resulting in smoother skin and toned texture.”

BMG is the first clinic in the Philippines as well to be certified for the Ultherapy II system.

The event simultaneously introduced Kris Aquino as Ultherapy’s newest endorser.

‘My Recipe to Sexy’

Speaking of endorsers, Century Tuna presented Gerald Anderson, Matteo Guidicelli and Paulo Avelino as the brand’s ambassadors at the the launch of its “My Recipe to Sexy” campaign, also held at Makati Shangri-La.

The three celebrity hunks play “cooks” in Century Tuna’s latest TV commercial—each with his own recipe to a sexy, healthy bod: Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich a la Matteo; Tuna Pancit Canton a la Paulo; and Tuna Silog a la Gerald.

They themselves gamely recreated the easy-to-prepare dishes on the spot at the fun, beach-themed event.

“We’ve been thinking of ways to encourage people that there’s more to Century Tuna,” said Greg Banzon, Century Pacific Food Inc. vice president and general manager. “With this campaign, we showed that Century Tuna is as versatile as our new three endorsers, that there are more than the usual ways to prepare it, all healthy, delicious and easy.”

In other words, palangga, you don’t have to deprive yourself of good food to stay fit and sexy. With Century Tuna’s “My Recipe to Sexy,” you can eat well and eat right.
