Acne is Clearing Up! A Testimonial by Sarah B

I came into Dr. Mauricio’s office for a consultation in January of 2012 in regards to my acne breakout and scarring.  She is an exceptional individual with an impressive educational background and demeanor.  Her staff came off as very friendly and helpful as well!

She recommended that I try the microdermabrasian with the crystal peel treatment in order to achieve the results I was looking for.

However, in the beginning I was doubtful because my breakouts were bad and my acne not only left my face scarred but my confidence was was broken as well.  But with all of the positive testimonies I’ve heard from friends I gave it a shot.

Since January I’ve been personally treated by one of the aestheticians at the Scripps Clinic, Genesis.  Gen’s entire personality is attractive; in addition to the recommended clinical treatments by Dr. Mauricio, she offered the proper products that worked with my specific skin type.

After only two sessions, I began to see consistent results:  My face began to clear up, I regained the smooth texture in my face, my acne scarring began to lighten, I had less breakouts and the redness from my pimples had disappeared.

I am still continuing this acne treatment and my results have become more rewarding each time.  And so I would like to say thank you Scripps Ranch Dermatology staff, and especially to my aesthetician – Gen!

Liposuction May Reduce Triglycerides

Did you see this latest news from The Los Angeles Times posted today? The “Booster Shots” blog reports that liposuction “may…reduce harmful fat circulating in the blood,” according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Investigators measured “triglyceride levels in” nearly 230 individuals undergoing the procedure. The researchers found that “in people with normal triglyceride levels, cosmetic surgery made no difference.” However, “among people who started out with high triglycerides, blood tests taken three months after surgery showed a 43% reduction in triglycerides.”

There’s another post from HealthDay as well that reports, “Levels of white blood cells also dipped after liposuction and in patients who had both procedures.” However, “levels of cholesterol and blood sugar didn’t change significantly.”

Triglycerides are a type of lipid found in your blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals. If you regularly eat more calories than you burn, particularly “easy” calories like carbohydrates and fats, you may have high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia). Having a high level of triglycerides, a type of fat (lipid) in your blood, can increase your risk of heart disease.

I’ve you have questions about how Liposuction and Liposculpture can help you, please call us at the Scripps Ranch Dermatology and Cosmetic Center or the Dr. Tess Dermatology and Cosmetic Center in La Jolla.

New Show Tackles Taboo Filipino Issues

rsvp talk showThis article was written by Yong Chavez for ABS-CBN North America Bureau on September 1st, 2011.

RSVP” is The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) newest US-based weekly talk show and it aims to get their viewers engaged through an honest discussion of issues.

“RSVP” hosts actress G Tongi, Dr. Tess Mauricio and their guests will discuss sensitive issues such as challenges faced by bi-racial Pinoys, Filipinos’ obsession with whitening products, and what people do to be stars in the Philippines.

“We talk about issues that men don’t want to hear and women are too afraid to talk about and that in itself is very intriguing,” said host G Tongi.

“RSVP” is directed by ABS-CBN talent RD Alba and has Michael Carandang, an Emmy Award-winning producer of “The Tyra Banks Show” and “America’s Next Top Model,” as its show runner.

“People ask me all the time, ‘O, you’re going from mainstream to TFC, bakit, why?’ I’m like, ‘Why not?’ I think, Filipinos, it’s a great community here. If you produce a show for them that they love, I think that’s a great accomplishment by itself. I was born in the Philippines. I grew up in the Philippines so to be an immigrant and to move in the US regardless of how successful I’ve become in the US, it means nothing to me and my family if I can’t contribute sa mga Filipinos. TFC has been on for so many years and it cured my homesickness noong nasa Indiana ako,” said Carandang.

It was The Filipino Channel that brought them together.

Mauricio, a highly respected dermatologist in America who has been a guest on US mainstream shows like “The Doctors,” “The Rachel Ray Show” and “America’s Next Top Model” as a beauty expert, sought out Carandang after watching him featured on TFC.

In an episode, Mauricio will share the truths about beauty treatments, including the ones being marketed in the Philippines despite being considered unsafe by heath professionals.

Growing up, Mauricio also struggled with her skin color due to the pressure in the community to be as light-skinned as possible.

“In the Philippines, there’s all this obsession about obtaining white skin, bleaching to a point where it’s really unhealthy both physically, emotionally and psychologically. I was able to share about a topic that’s close to my heart,” Mauricio said.

Their first season’s guest list include notable Filipino and Filipino-American celebrities and also American newsmakers.

One of their upcoming guests is the so-called “Octomom” Nadya Suleman, who opens up like she has never before in her mainstream TV interviews.

G Tongi said she is excited for the chance to pursue an outlet that is very different from acting.

Her fans will also get to see her kids for the first time on the show.

“We did an episode where we discussed being bi-racial. I was really able to talk about that. It was a huge sigh of relief to be able to open up and share that about myself,” said G Tongi.

In their premiere episode on September 10, former Philippine actress Patricia Javier will reveal something personal that she has kept from the public.

Through stories like hers, “RSVP” aims to educate its viewers.

“It’s a talk show that empowers women,” G Tongi explained.

“Gusto namin na yung mga Kapamilya na nanood sa bahay, we want them to follow and watch and listen because a lot of the topics that we discuss this season are topics that we don’t normally feel comfortable talking about as Filipinos. What we did is we highlighted the stories that made us understand the topic a little better,” Carandang said.

Apart from issues, they will also feature high-achieving Filipinos in different fields with expertise to share to Filipinos who want to know how to make it in America.

“We really hope to inspire Filipinos out there to be proud to say they’re Filipinos,” Mauricio said.

“RSVP” will be shown on TFC every Saturday.
