Femilift at SvelT’i: The Best Gift for Moms This Mother’s Day!

In two days, we celebrate the day of the most special women in our lives, our moms. The hardworking women who toil day in and day out to care for their families, often neglecting their own needs, deserve all the love and care we can give them this Mother’s Day. Buy her favorite scent or chocolates, treat her to a fancy dinner, or better yet, let her have some pampering at SvelT’i. If you’d ask me, I’ll go for the last option. Why? Well, we know for a fact that our moms look after everyone’s well-being but their own. So it’s very likely that they have health conditions that require professional attention, like stress urinary incontinence.

Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence is a medical condition that mothers may experience but choose not to discuss or even consult with a doctor, for fear of embarrassment or shame. It consists of a series of temporary, fast, but very palpable urinary leaks that are triggered by ordinary things like laughter, sneezing or coughing. The lady may be in the middle of a conversation with friends or having a laughing interaction with teachers at a PTA meeting, then suddenly, she gets an involuntary spasm in their muscle down under, followed by a familiar wetness that comes with a pee. It is a very awkward and uncomfortable moment.

Causes of Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence happens when the vaginal muscle becomes lax and is unable to prevent those sporadic involuntary leaks. Several factors that cause this laxity in mothers could be natural ageing, childbirth, or a very active sexual life. One or all of these factors can strain the orifice’s tightness and loosen it up.


Femilift is the cutting-edge treatment that can heal mothers of this medical condition, and restore their confidence as an attractive woman of poise and power. Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre, explains: “Femilift applies concentrated thermal healing and micro-abalation to the vagina’s inner layers. . A laser probe is used and releases a laser beam deep enough into the vagina’s submucosa level where new collagen is formed. This stimulates the regeneration of collagen which tightens the tissue. At the same time, it contracts the vagina’s elastin fibers.”

Results and Contra-indicators

Dr. Salazar continues, “The restored female genital tissue strengthens the vaginal wall and reduces or eliminates stress urinary incontinence. It also restores vaginal laxity and enhances lubrication and the sensitivity of vaginal tissue.”

The SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre also conducts medical screening for each patient before administering or approving the treatment. Procedure cannot continue if any of the contra-indications are found like active bacterial infection, immune system deficiency diseases, pregnancy, malignancy, vaginal bleeding, photosensitivity to laser, pelvic organ prolapse, pacemakers in the body, uncontrolled diabetes, and menstruation.

Moms can experience the renewed sensitivity and tightness of their vaginal muscle after three short sessions. The treatment takes place in a quick 30 minutes and requires no downtime; the patient can go back to work immediately. It is non-invasive, and very safe, using separate individual probes for each patient.

“The one post-treatment requirement would be no sexual activity for three days after undergoing the Femilift procedure. It’s a little sacrifice considering the benefits the patient will gain. Stress urinary incontinence can diminish if not disappear after a session,” says Dr. Salazar.

She pauses then adds with a smile, “The removal of the vaginal laxity could also rekindle the exciting sexual intimacy with their partner so the results are more than worth the wait.” That rekindling of passion in the bedroom, along with the elimination of the stress urinary incontinence, may be the best Mother’s Day’s present yet!

Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™ and Milk+Oats™: Marian Rivera’s Secret to Baby Soft, Smooth Skin

Celebrity mom Marian Rivera has just about everything a girl could wish for. For one, she is married to top matinee idol Dingdong Dantes and she has an adorable daughter, Zia. She is also the Kapuso Primetime Queen and the only actress in Philippine television history to have played the iconic roles of Marimar, Darna, and Dyesebel. She has millions of followers, too, and a beauty that captivates the hearts of many. Proof of this are the thousands of likes she gets for every social media post.

Marian’s Eurasian features and her sweet smile are a sight to behold, but her most valuable asset is really her baby soft, smooth skin. Well, you may blame good genes for that, but according to Marian, it actually takes a lot of effort to keep her skin beautiful, especially since she is constantly exposed to thick makeup, heavy lights and sleepless nights. So, how does a Marian Rivera keep her skin flawless despite all these?

“Sa totoo lang, ang pinaka-importante talaga sa akin eh yung pinapanatili kong strong and healthy ang skin ko so it can keep up with the demands of my family and my career. That’s why I use products that provide moisture and deep nourishment like Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™ and Milk+Oats™. I believe that when your skin is strong and healthy, it’s easy to achieve beauty,” shared Marian.

 photo DADVENTURES 17_zpspcrfxmoh.jpg

Dr. Loverna Arcilla Suratos, MD, FPDS, couldn’t agree more. Dr. Suratos was the guest resource speaker in the recently concluded Johnson’s® #Dadventures Camp media event held at Dusit Thani Manila. “More than aiming for cosmetic benefits such as whitening, it’s important to choose products that can nourish skin to make it strong and healthy. Strong skin is more resilient against harsh environments that can cause dryness or even scarring, possibly putting cosmetic efforts to waste,” she said.

Marian Rivera swears by the effectiveness of Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™ and Johnson’s® Milk+Oats™ in keeping her and Zia’s skin in excellent condition. Johnson’s® Milk+Oats™ contain avenamethrides, a naturally-occurring compound that protects skin against irritation. Oats also heal dry and sensitive skin, bringing soap-damaged skin back to its natural, healthy state. Johnson’s® Milk+Rice™, on the other hand, is fortified with 200% more vitamins that works deep within the skin to provide long-lasting moisture, improving skin smoothness, softness, and suppleness with every use.

Like Marian and Baby Zia, you, too, can have healthy skin that stays baby soft and with JOHNSON’S® Milk+Rice and JOHNSON’S® Milk+Oats. These products are available in leading supermarkets, drug stores and department stores nationwide.

Kris Aquino and Fucidin® Help Moms Fight Against Wound Infection

The Queen of All Media, Ms. Kris Aquino, is first and foremost a mom who loves her children and makes sure their needs are well taken care of. And like all moms, Kris doesn’t take chances when it comes to her kids’ health. At the first sign of a wound infection, she trusts only one brand, Fucidin®.

 photo DSCN9432_zpszutb3k78.jpg

“I have two boys and when they get a cut or a wound, I clean it with soap and water for 15 seconds. Then, I apply Fucidin® agad,” she says. “Fucidin® is part of our wound care kit!”

I’m a mom, too, of an energetic soon-to-be-11-year-old boy, and I’m no stranger to cuts, bruises and wounds. I know for a fact that children, especially boys, are exposed to different types of wounds and scrapes because of their daily activities. And they can still get hurt even in the most unlikely places.

Here’s what I usually do when my son gets bruised, scraped or cut. I usually wash the affected area with water and soap so that it stays clean and won’t get infected. Then I put antiseptic solution and cover it with an adhesive bandage.

 photo DSCN9363_zpsknqzufy4.jpg

At the recent Moms Unite Against Wound Infection event that I attended at Ascott BGC hosted by Ms. Kris Aquino, I realized that I was missing one step of the entire process of treating wound infection.

I was right in washing the wound well with soap and water as a way to prevent infection from setting in. You see infection occurs when bacteria enters the wound through a break on one’s skin, and bacteria may spread and lead to more serious diseases.

However, cleaning the wound with soap and water may not be enough. It is also essential to apply a topical antibiotic like Fucidin® when there’s a sign of wound infection.

 photo Fucidin Flyer-02_zpsjp5cbpvz.jpg

Fusidic acid/sodium fusidate Fucidin® is a powerful antibiotic that is clinically proven against wound infection. It is fast-acting, working on the infection two minutes upon application. It is deep-penetrating, too, reaching the skin’s deepest layer 30 minutes after application. It likewise helps prevent bacteria from spreading.

There are two variants: Fucidin® cream and Fucidin® Ointment. Fucidin® cream is ideal for exposed parts of the body like the face and hands, while Fucidin® ointment is ideal for dry, scaly or cracked lesions.

It was an insightful afternoon as the audience gained helpful information from the discussion. It was entertaining, too, with the Queen of All Media perking up the event with her candid questions. It was really fun watching her!

Mommies, let’s join the fight against wound infection. Like Kris, stock up on Fucidin® and don’t take chances. Fucidin® is available in leading drugstores nationwide.

 photo DSCN9436_zpsmfd79rxn.jpg

Fucidin® is manufactured by LEO Pharma, a Danish pharmaceutical company with a mission to help people achieve healthy skin. LEO Pharma is the pioneer in the development of fusidic acid. It has a wide range of products that are marketed in over 100 countries. LEO Pharma has more than 100 years of trusted heritage worldwide.
