A GROWING trend among dental clinics in Europe, US, and Asia is the integration of aesthetic treatments for the skin. In the Philippines, there are only a few clinics who can offer both dental and skin treatments. One such clinic can now be found in Cagayan de Oro right at Ayala Centrio Mall.
At Premea, the heart of what they do is improving the patients’ confidence and overall health and this goes beyond creating beautiful smiles. Here, they provide skin treatments both for medical (acne and acne scars revision, melasma hyperpigmentation treatment) and non-medical procedures (facials, microdermabrasion, body slimming and laser hair removal and waxing) as well.
As you enter the clinic, everything feels so homey and well lit. The color teal is striking at one end of the wall as well as on the decors and appointments. It evokes a clinical yet warm reception when combined with white and grey tones of the floor and the rest of the walls. The couch is so soft. You could actually fall asleep while waiting for your turn to be treated.
The safety of the clients is secured before going through the skin or dental procedure, they will have to answer some medical/dental history questions on a form given to them to properly address their concerns. One strict policy of the clinic is that no skin or body treatment shall be administered to women who have their menstrual period or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Apart from ensuring the comfort and safety of its clients, Premea also sees to it that its customers will receive only the best quality services from its well-trained staff, aestheticians, aesthetic doctor and dentists, latest instruments, and top-notch facilities.
All of Premea's aestheticians/doctor are well experienced and have been exposed or trained to some well-known clinics in Manila for more than three years.
And what is worth mentioning is that Premea's senior dentist is none other than Dr. Jocelyn Borja Songco, a third generation of the Borja family of dentists, whose clinic used to be situated at Pabayo-Hayes. She is a Certified Phibrows Artist which trains European techniques in microblading tattoo. She also has certification in Korean microblading from Singapore, as well as certification from Sviatoslav Academy.
They have individual rooms for skin treatments to provide privacy for its clients. The other rooms are Scrub Room, Microblading Room, and a VIP room for couples/besties who want to undergo the skin treatment procedure together.
However, the most aesthetically designed room is the dental treatment area. Instead of the plain white painted ceiling you usually see in dental clinics, Premea has its ceiling designed to look like you are looking through a window with a view of clouds and some cherry blossom branches which evokes a relaxing atmosphere.
The most popular treatment they can offer for the non-medical procedures are:
- K Facial. Or Korean Facial. This is Premea’s signature facial treatment that no other clinic in Cagayan de Oro can match.
It is a 75-minute facial combining Korean facial techniques with use of ultrasound device, LED/PDT (photodynamic treatment) light (optional) and finish off with lymphatic massage to drain out toxins from the face and neck area. Guaranteed Authentic Korean products are used.
- CC Powerpeel. This powerpeel treatment uses corundum crystals to visibly whiten the skin and rid-off dead skin cells.
Premea is one of the few clinics that offer this kind of treatment and the machine they use is one of the most trusted machines in Australia.
Firmashape. A Premea body treatment, fat-reduction and body-contouring by ultrasound cavitation and interference frequency.
Laser Diode Hair Removal. A completely safe, quick and painless hair removal treatment to achieve that hair-free complexion.
Some medical procedures which are in demand are:

IV Push/Drip Therapy
They offer IV treatments for those patients who aim for a fairer, glowing skin and also those who desire wellness and health giving benefits of vitamin therapy.

These are chemical peels used to treat dark spots,hyperpigmentation as well as acne.
Apart from the usual dental treatments, Premea offers Damon Braces, and Invisalign treatment which is a clear alternative to metal braces for orthodontic treatment. For cosmetic treatments, Premea offers teeth whitening using Philips Zoom chairside machine and tray type/take-home. Ceramic and Composite Veneers are also some of the cosmetic treatments being offered.

"We will continually evolve, especially for our medical skin procedures. Later on we will introduce machines that can offer aesthetic treatments" Mr. Songco said.
