Aesthetic Science joins in supporting LoveYourself

LoveYourself welcomes the newest ally to its growing circle of supporters and friends, the beauty and wellness clinic Aesthetic Science.

“We support LoveYourself, an organization that aims to raise HIV awareness among the youth and MSM groups. Let us achieve, share, and celebrate love in all its forms since the essence of love is universal,” said a representative from Aesthetic Science.

Aesthetic Science has been ramping up its support not just to LoveYourself but also to other advocacies, such as assisting the Red-Cross Muntinlupa Chapter by organizing a blood donation drive among its employees.

“We are turning red and sharing love this month by giving it not just to ourselves but to others as well,” said the Aesthetic Science representative.

Established in November 2005 by Dr. Yanee Vasquez, Aesthetic Science was created out of a passion to provide affordable, medical-based skin and body care treatments in a relaxing and soothing ambience of a spa.  The medical-based cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery center currently has two branches: G/F Kennedy Center Building Prime Street corner Venture Street Madrigal Business Park Alabang, Muntinlupa City; and G/F Jupiter Place Building Jupiter Street, Makati City.

Have you been thinking about volunteering lately? Have you been wanting to help out in some way?

If you have that fire inside of you, let LoveYourself help you ignite it.
If you're like us, you've probably been burning to volunteer for some time now. You aren't alone. Many of us were drawn into this advocacy because we knew we were hot with this passion, knew we needed to help in some way. And when we became part of LoveYourself, that passion -- that fire -- grew and spread, and allowed us to do amazing things.

If you want to spark change, let LoveYourself be the way you do it.
LoveYourself is a community of passionate, committed volunteers who are taking on the issues that matter to people like us: self-worth, being MSM, and living with HIV.

At LoveYourself, you are welcome to create positive change however you can. Whether it's through being an HIV counselor and helping people through the experience of getting tested, or in another way, there's opportunity for all of us to unite our diverse talents behind our common mission of embracing and nurturing our self-worth, inspiring others to do the same, and creating ripples of positive change in the community.

Do you think you could share our passion? Are you committed to our advocacy?

Volunteer with LoveYourself today.
LoveYourself has always been a 100% volunteer-led organization. We are what we are today because of the passion that inspired our volunteers. And while we've grown in numbers, we've still kept that fire -- that spirit that makes us who we are -- alive. Today, we're looking for talented volunteers who have that fire in them: who are passionate about our purpose and can commit time, pour energy and invest love into our advocacy.

Want to be a part of LoveYourself? Sign up to volunteer on our website: and block the 1st of March, 2014 (Saturday) for the LoveYourself Ignite Batch Orientation. We'll be in touch with sign-ups about the details.

NOTE: The sign-up period for this batch ends on 23 February, 2014 (Sunday), after which all sign-ups will be entertained during the next recruitment cycle.

Our Alabang service follows the same high standards of service that our highly-rated HIV testing service previously offered only in Mandaluyong and Makati.

I’ve signed up. What do I do during the HIV test?
Read through our LoveYourself Platinum: What Happens During HIV Testing as well as our HIV Testing FAQs to learn more about the testing process and how you can prepare for it.

How discreet is HIV testing by LoveYourself Platinum?
Each testing event only accommodates a limited number of clients each session. This ensures paramount privacy during testing and the highest quality of counseling and testing service.

Clients also spend minimal time waiting because the testing is by-appointment. Come in at your designated time, and get tested right away -- no sitting and waiting for long periods of time in a public lobby. You enjoy the same expediency when receiving your results.

How much do I pay for LoveYourself Platinum?
A donation of PhP550.00 - PhP1,000.00 will be collected to cover our operational costs (administrative services, medical technologist, etc) for running this premium HIV testing service.

Will there be other testing dates in Alabang?
LoveYourself is planning to hold one Alabang testing event per month, always on a Sunday. Be sure to check our reservation page, or announcements via our blogTwitter and our Facebook page.
