The Icon Clinic may have been present and thriving in the aesthetics industry for more than ten years now, but what’s unknown to many is two years ago, The Icon Clinic has branched out to build a skincare hub to give its patients an all-around pamper treat. And we have Vina Yapjuangco to thank for this skincare hub, as she brought to life what was once just an idea into a reality.
When Vina realized most of The Icon Clinic’s patients had to transfer to other clinics just to get facials and other dermatology services, the idea of a skincare hub was born. Back then, The Icon Clinic was a full-fledged plastic surgery center and didn’t offer any dermatology treatments.
“Our patients found it difficult to explain to other clinics that they had surgery done. So, the need to offer dermatology services aroused,” Vina looks back to the skincare hub’s beginnings. Fast forward to today, Vina’s vision of a clean looking spa but still elegant came to life.
Like the primary vision of The Icon Clinic, the skincare hub aims to give excellent patient care and realistic satisfactory results to anyone who enters the clinic. “We want them to feel welcome and at ease when they are in our clinic. No discrimination and judgment,” says Vina, discussing that the skincare’s target market is anyone who’s seeking nothing but excellent skincare treatments.
Being a pharmacist by profession, Vina had no choice but to step up to the role as the leading force behind the skincare hub. “Since my husband takes over the surgery clinic, it was automatic that I had to take the responsibility with our other venture,” Vina shares. To gain more knowledge about managing a business, Vina took up a Master’s in Business Management Health at the Ateneo de Manila University. With the help of this education, Vina has a better grasp of running and taking care of their business.
The Icon Clinic’s skincare hub has been operating for more than two years now, but the unparalleled patient experience from both the plastic surgery and skincare clinics remain the same. “I believe that all of our services are unique because of the personal touch that we give to our patients. Each patient is different, so we cater to what they need and personalize the treatments needed, with guaranteed REAL RESULTS,” Vina concludes.
The Icon Clinic Dermatology Center is located at BTTC Centre Unit G3-288 Ortigas Ave. corner Roosevelt St. Greenhills, San Juan City.
