If there’s a breakthrough in the dynamic aesthetic medicine and wellness industry, best believe that The Aivee Clinic’s founder and Medical Director Dr. Aivee Teo and CEO Dr. Z Teo are already bringing it in to meet the needs of their discerning patients at their six locations in Manila and Singapore. But two things remain unchanged in the past eight years: Ultherapy as the gold standard for non-surgical lifting and The Aivee Clinic as its top provider.
The dynamic couple recently flew to Bangkok to represent Philippine excellence and receive the most-coveted accolade in the prestigious 8th Golden Record Awards by Merz Aesthetics Asia Pacific: The Top Award in Ultherapy, surpassing some of the top beauty clinics throughout Southeast Asia.
And that’s not all. Just days before, The Aivee Clinic bagged the 7-Star Overall Award, the highest recognition in the annual Tala Awards by Merz Aesthetic Philippines. The Aivee Clinic also won 7-Star Category Awards for Ultherapy, Belotero, and Xeomin and a 5-Star Category Award for Ulthera Control Unit.
Raising the standard year after year is no easy feat. Addressing the country’s experts during her speech, Dr. Aivee said, “Let us not only celebrate these awards but also the values they represent: determination, innovation, teamwork, and the relentless pursuit of excellence. Let us carry these principles forward as we continue to make a difference and inspire others along the way.”
We caught up with Dr. Aivee about their well-deserved win and what drives this achievement.
THE PHILIPPINE STAR: You’ve consistently been recognized as the top Ultherapy provider not only in the Philippines but also in Southeast Asia. What sets you apart as a Certified Ultherapy Center?
AIVEE TEO: Consistently winning the award reflects our commitment to providing exceptional service. What sets us apart is our dedicated team and our unwavering focus on staying at the forefront of aesthetic innovations. As a Certified Ultherapy Center, we prioritize precision and maintain high standards in non-invasive facelift procedures.
The Aivee Clinic carries the best and the latest technology in beauty and anti-aging. How important is Ultherapy in your practice?
Ultherapy is a cornerstone of our practice. Its non-invasive nature and remarkable results align with our philosophy of enhancing natural beauty. It allows us to offer our clients effective, safe, and cutting-edge solutions in skin tightening and lifting, contributing significantly to our comprehensive range of services.
What is your goal for The Aivee Clinic over the next five years?
Our primary goal is to further elevate the standards of aesthetic care. This involves expanding our reach, introducing state of the art treatments, and continuing our commitment to high quality standards. We aim to empower more individuals to look and feel their best, fostering confidence and well-being.
You have locations throughout Metro Manila and a branch in Dr. Z’s hometown, Singapore. Is an expansion in the works?
Expansion is always an exciting prospect. We're continuously evaluating opportunities to reach more individuals seeking top-tier aesthetic care. We are definitely expanding outside Metro Manila and we're exploring avenues that align with our mission to make advanced skincare and wellness accessible to a broader clientele.
You’ve come a long way from opening the first luxurious clinic in the country in 2009 to pioneering technologies and trends today. How do you stay true to your core values and your life goal?
Staying true to my core values involves a commitment to excellence, integrity, and innovation. My life goal has always been to empower individuals to look and feel their best. By ensuring that every decision aligns with these values, I can stay focused on making a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need my help.
As a leader in dermatology, how will you shape the ever-changing standards of beauty for the betterment of society's self-perception?
The future of beauty standards should celebrate diversity and inclusivity. I hope to continue challenging conventional norms and promoting a more holistic approach to beauty—one that emphasizes overall well-being. Through education, innovation, and community engagement, I aim to contribute to a positive shift in societal perceptions of beauty, both locally and regionally.
