Cryo Stamp

Now that we’re on our Year 2 at Zenbiosis, I thought hard on the next machine that I should invest on. Eventually, I decided that a multipurpose apparatus like the cryostamp is just what I needed.

Cryo Stamp is a treatment best suited for those who want results yet don’t want the pain that come with it. For example,  only a few would dare go for a mesotherapy session since it involves needles and some degree of discomfort. So far, the ones who went for it are enjoying better results. With the Cryo Stamp, machine, fat melting will be a breeze by infusing the mesotherapy ingredients transdermally, yet effectively.

Cryo therapy

The machine combines the technology of both cryotherapy and electrophoresis. Just hearing the word cryo might chill you down, as it  means ice cold or low temperature. The stable -15 degrees celsius  temperature of the machine rapidly cools the skin, causing constriction of the small blood vessels, followed by vasodilatation due to release of transmitter substances. This enables the serums to be pumped into the skin. Electrophoresis, on the other hand, works on the principle that  the charged particles of a product migrate in an applied electrical field. Skin treatments penetrate the lipid bilayer membranes by applying voltage pulses.

Cryo Stamp Cagayan de Oro

Compared to iontophoresis or galvanic treatment, cryo-electrophoresis produces several times more astounding results as there is a more even and deeper penetration of the drug.This unique technology from Korea delivers a fresher looking skin with better tone, elasticity, and texture. It has a multitude of uses that anyone can benefit from. Among its more common indications are:

  1. Needle-free mesotherapy/ Slimming
  2. Anti-aging through skin lifting/tightening
  3. Skin rejuvenation
  4. Lessen pore size
  5. Lightening of dark spots
  6. Hair restoration
  7. Pain management
  8. Anti-inflammation post procedure


  1. No pain
  2. No static or zapping
  3. Improves lymphatic and blood circulation
  4. Relieves swelling or pain
  5. Instant firming
  6. Can deliver a wide range of cosmetic substances transdermally
  7. Enhances collagen production
  8. Relaxing
  9. No downtime
  10. No bruising ( for mesotherapy)

The following conditions have not been established to be safe for Cryo Stamp:

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Breastfeeding
  3. Herpes Zoster
  4. Active infection on the area to be treated
  5. Cardiac pacemaker

The Cryo Stamp procedure is definitely not something to give the cold shoulder to.  For inquiries and appointments, you may reach Zenbiosis Medical and Medical Clinic at 63 917-326-6893 (Globe or Viber) or 850-0554 (landline).

Platelet Rich Plasma aka Vampire Lift

May 3, 2013 by  
Filed under Feature

Comments Off

Perhaps Kim Kardashian comes into your mind when you hear Platelet Rich Plasma for beauty. She flaunted her bloody face on instagram while undergoing the said treatment, which is otherwise known as “Vampire Facelift.” This $1500 non-surgical fountain of youth is aimed to give the skin a firmer, younger look.

Apparently, Kim Kardashian is not the only Hollywood star enjoying the benefits the said rejuvenating treatment because other celebrities  have sunk their teeth into this promising aesthetic procedure as well.  A gift certificate to a vampire lift was even said to be included in this year’s Academy Awards’ loot bag.

Whether you’re a Hollywood star, a Twilight fan or simply someone looking for ways to improve your appearance, the Platelet Rich Plasma of Vampire Lift proves to be an ally in our quest for a youthful glow.


Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Explained

The procedure involves blood extracted from the patient, the way it is extracted for laboratory examinations (cholesterol determination, etc). It is then placed in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelet rich serum. Using an activator, the platelet is assured to be full of growth factors will will be beneficial for healing and rejuvenation of the skin.

Platelets are part of the body’s army that hurries to the injured site and incite response to protect the body. Its growth factors stimulate tissue regeneration and collagen formation.

The isolated platelet-rich serum will be applied to the skin using multiple punctures or intradermal injections. At my own practice at Zenbiosis, we use a combination of Derma Pen to induce multiple tiny punctures and stimulate collagen formation, plus the injection using the smallest gauge needle to deliver the serum just underneath the upper layer of the skin, to the areas of concern.


Cosmetic Uses of PRP:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  •  Sagging skin
  • Dull-looking skin
  • Lifting effect, as alternative to dermal fillers
  • Melasma
  • Hair Loss
  • Large Pores
  • Stretch Marks
  • Combined treatment with botox, dermal fillers, laser, etc

Sports fans will probably argue that this is only used for injuries involving joints, as Tiger Woods was popularly treated with PRP  for a painful knee. Other athletes like Rafael Nadal and Kobe Bryant were likewise reported to have benefitted from this treatment where the platelets extracted were injected into points of injury.  These days, PRP is no longer limited to orthopedics or sports medicine.  Aesthetic Medicine has recognized the potentials of PRP and employed it to deliver results for beauty problems.

In my experience, results have been encouraging. From treating stretch marks, to reducing wrinkles, the difference  have been astounding. Despite its promising results, I believe that the price was a little prohibitive especially for  the Cagayan de Oro market, despite that it was already offered at a fraction of the cost from Manila clinics.  I’ve decided that PRP needed a little more introduction since most people are still at a loss to what it is and what it can do for them.

Go and try it out for yourself.  In this day and age of advanced technology and in this case- affordable beauty treatment- there is no excuse for remaining frustrated with what you see in the mirror.

Zenbiosis Medical and Aesthetic Clinic

December 10, 2012 by  
Filed under Featured Articles

I could write a mile-long entry about how I’ve always wanted to be an Aesthetic Medicine specialist and how my dreams were crushed again and again, til now. I’d rather cut the drama short and tell you that finally, my vision was manifested with Zenbiosis Medical and Aesthetic Clinic. It is my proof that dreams do come true, at the right time, when it’s meant for you. I prayed to God to let me work at a skin care clinic, He said no, watched me sob over rejections, then gave me my own clinic instead.  Hmm… I prayed to win the lotto, but well.. I keep getting a resounding no.

Bringing beauty  and restoring confidence in people is my niche. However, practicing my primary profession as a physician while making people more beautiful is my ultimate career goal. Now, I’m able to  finally do that through my own real-life vanity clinic at Zenbiosis Medical and Aesthetic Clinic.

The name Zenbiosis comes from the symbiotic relationship of beauty and wellness. Aside from skin care and non-surgical anti-aging procedures, I’m being able to practice medical acupuncture, a WHO-recognized treatment modality for various diseases which I’ve been trained to do for more than 2 years now, at the clinic .

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’d know how often I rant about being besieged by skin issues especially acne. If you’re seeing me now with less blemishes, that’s because I made an effort to fix my skin problems. I realized that there are ways to solve beauty issues if we’re committed to improving ourselves. And it doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg. Yes, I’m here to tell you there’s hope!  Zenbiosis is my avenue to help you to be the beautiful person you’ve always wanted to be.  Trust me, I know what you’re going through because I’ve been there too.

Zenbiosis is the first in Cagayan de Oro to offer Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy aka Vampire Face Lift and likewise the first to offer medical acupuncture and aesthetic procedures in one clinic. We’re also among the few to use the automated derma roller/ fractional microneedling device for acne scars, fine lines stretchmarks, alopecia,  and enlarged pores.  You’ve trusted my hands in beauty, now let me help you by letting me do what I do best, the medical way.

If you’re in Cagayan de Oro or plan to visit CDO soon, please drop by our clinic soon at Door 3, AB Santiago Bldg. Velez-Gaerlan Sts. Cagayan de Oro (near Gazebo and Air Phil Ticketing Office). Call or text 09173266893. Like our page to be updated about our latest promos and services.

Ways To Send Help For Sendong Victims

December 21, 2011 by  
Filed under Feature

Comments Off

I was supposed to post about Sendong 2 days ago, but then I decided the emotional outbursts I earlier wrote wouldn’t help much. Instead, I am reposting this compiled information  from Bayanihan Online on where you could channel your help for those affected by the typhoon. As of writing, death toll has risen to 1000.  As you may have heard from the news, Cagayan de Oro (the city where I live) has been the most ravaged by Sendong, along with Iligan City. People we actually know have either died in the flash flood or are now homeless. We’re doing everything we can in our little ways to help but a lot of families are still in dire need of assistance.

Local celebrities like Angel Locsin, Anne Curtis, Kris Aquino, and Vice Ganda have spared time in distributing relief goods here Cagayan de Oro 2 days ago. Whether or not it was for media mileage, as some critics have made an issue out of it, bottom line is that they’ve helped increase awareness on what’s going on here. We appreciate their efforts to help out and bring smile to the people in evacuation centers. Local government sectors from other cities like Davao City have pitched in too. The generosity shown by everyone who reached out gave life to what Christmas is all about.  If you want to do your share, here are the ways you can help:
