The Skin Specialist has indeed come a long way! From a small clinic along Timog Avenue when it was founded in 2002 by Dr. Jean Marquez, a practicing dermatologist, Fellow of the Philippine Dermatological Society and host of TV’s PinoyMD, it has now grown into an elite dermatological center in the heart of Quezon City. Since then, The Skin Specialist is committed to providing safe, non-invasive and effective solutions for various skin concerns, whether for medical treatment or simply a total aesthetic makeover.

The 13th year celebration of The Skin Specialist was an intimate one and it was once again graced by people from the media, celebrities, and loyal patients of Dr. Jean Marquez. You'll know how hands on Dr. Jean is with her patients as she personally entertains her guests one by one. I guess that's what sets Dr. Jean and The Skin Specialist apart from other practitioners and clinics - their hands-on approach and close supervision of each patient.

For its 13th anniversary, The Skin Specialist aims to address one of the main concerns of women nowadays - aging. During a presentation made by Dr. Jean, she explains that aging is caused by various factors such as stress and pollution. And while it is inevitable, there are now advances in dermatological technology that have produced treatments to effectively address wrinkles and sagging skin minus the pain and downtime, such as the ClearTight Laser.
ClearTight Laser is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative treatment that improves fine lines and wrinkles, also the appearance of small veins and redness caused by vascularity. It is gentle enough to treat areas that are typically too sensitive with traditional ablative lasers, such as the delicate skin around the eyes, forehead, mouth, neck, chest, hands, elbows, knees and underarms. ClearTight is an alternative to traditional skin resurfacing and surgical face lifts that is painless and has no downtime. Basically, it helps address almost all of the issues when it comes to aging such as erasing dark spots, lifting, firming, and improving the contour of the face.
ClearTight delivers photo acoustic shockwaves to the target area through high laser intensities in nanosecond pulses. This mechanical Q-Switched effect creates a controlled dermal wound - a unique mechanism of action that achieves optimal results for each indication. ClearTight Laser is ideal in achieving a refreshed overall rejuvenation and tightening without the need for surgery. Its unique hand-piece can treat hard-to-reach areas that traditional ablative lasers can’t. ClearTight heats beneath the skin to reduce pain or discomfort.
And while the current trend in reducing fine lines is fractional lasers, these treatments have downtime. Many patients who have undergone traditional ablative laser treatments have a difficult recovery period and experience prolonged facial redness and swelling that lasts from 3 days to 2 weeks. ClearTight patients can return to work the same day. ClearTight patients only experience slightly pink skin that is warm to the touch for about 30 minutes post-treatment.
“After just one session, I saw a significant improvement on my problem areas: tightening of the neck and diminished lines around the mouth. There is also visible improvement around the eyes. It’s great coz I can attend to my work without any redness on my face,” attests a patient who has tried ClearTight for the first time.
ClearTight Laser treatment is recommended to anyone whose skin shows signs of aging. The most dramatic results are seen on people who have tried non-invasive therapies and are looking for something more aggressive but without the pain and down-time. The best candidates have moderate sun damage, are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin. ClearTight Laser can be performed on all skin types.
