The MakatiMed Aesthetic Center was inaugurated in 2007, and now has two (2) specialty centers: the Skin & Laser Hub at the MakatiMed Wellness Center (Ayala North Exchange Tower 1) and the Phototherapy Center at Tower 2 of Makati Medical Center.
 
The Center is one of the first centers in the country that focuses on the appreciation of the skin’s well-being.  It aims to provide patients with an array of treatments addressing skin concerns.  It is equipped with state-of-the-art machines that offer specialized solutions to various skin and body conditions.  It now boasts of thirteen (13) laser- and energy-based devices, two (2) phototherapy units, and one (1) hand and foot UVA (ultraviolet A-rays) phototherapy.
 
The Center delivers services to patients requiring adjunctive treatment for their pathological skin conditions and to individuals needing aesthetic procedures. On an average, the Aesthetic Center caters to over 6,000 patients every year.
 
The Aesthetic Center caters to a multitude of pathological skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, mycosis fungoides, psoriasis, vitiligo, and other photo-responsive skin diseases through its phototherapy treatment. Phototherapy uses a specific UV wavelength which targets the cells in the skin that cause inflammation, itchiness, and redness. The treatment reduces the symptoms and leads to the improvement of skin lesions with several sessions. Treatment dosages are managed carefully by a Dermatologist to prevent complications.  Through the Phototherapy Center, patients can take advantage of various treatments such as Hand & Foot Ultraviolet A (UVA), Narrowband Ultraviolet B (NB-UVB), and PUVA (Psoralen + UVA) Photochemotherapy.  Patients may opt to avail a single session of UVA or UVB procedure. Treatment packages are also available which comprise of five (5) phototherapy sessions.   
 
The Center also provides a selection of aesthetic procedures for patients who want to have non-invasive skin, face, and body enhancements. The Skin & Laser Hub attends to various skin conditions such as acne, pigmentation (freckles, melasma, sunspots, tattoos), scars, skin redness, unwanted hair and body fats, sagging skin, common skin growths (syringomas), and vein issues (telangiectasias or spider veins).
