In the poem “A Wife”, Sir Thomas Overbury said that “And all the carnall beauty of my wife, Is but skin-deep”. While many will agree with this; that physical beauty has nothing to do with a person’s emotional, spiritual, and intellectual qualities, it is also true that looking good can make you feel good about yourself. So, it is still essential for us to take care of our physical attributes. This is what the owners of Aruga Aesthetic Center were thinking about when they decided to open their clinic here in Cagayan de Oro.

Located along Ramon Chavez Street, near the busy Corrales Avenue area, Aruga is a one-stop aesthetic center for those who want to look good and feel good. It’s the best place to go to when you need to relax and let time slow down. The minute you walk inside the clinic, you’ll feel your nerves calm down. Its cool and simple white interiors are intended to make you forget all the hustle and bustle that sometimes makes you miss out on some of the most beautiful things in life. It makes you feel good.

Aruga Aesthetic Center takes the cue from its inspiration, the Tagalog term “pag-aaruga”, which can be loosely translated to “caring”. What it does is take care of its customers by making sure that every visit is a satisfying and memorable one. And this comes like second nature to them, especially since their certified aestheticians and nurses are well-trained in state-of-the-art cosmetic dermatology techniques.

For Aruga, caring for their customers also means taking time out to talk to them; taking time to know what they want and need. So, don’t be surprised when one or two of their aestheticians and nurses engage in a conversation with you. They love establishing a personal relationship with their customers. For them, this is one of the best ways to find out how they can satisfy their clients.

Of course, as the primary goal of Aruga is to make their customers look and feel good, they offer only the best aesthetic services, some of which are quite new to Kagay-anons. Here is a list of the most popular ones:

-ARUGA Anti-Aging Facial

-ARUGA Gentlemen’s Facial

-Platinum Peel

-Nano Powerpeel

-Body Waxing

-Eyebrow Threading

-Beauty Fusion

-Gluta with Vitamin C

Aruga’s Regular Facial, which is perfect for first timers, is only Php499. But, if you want more pampering and a more feel-good effect, upgrade your regular facial to an anti-aging facial and you’ll feel totally new after 45 minutes.

Aruga’s Anti-aging Facial

A special service offered exclusively (as far as we know) by Aruga is the iBrow (Illusion Eyebrow), a semi-permanent treatment that uses advanced brow techniques. The strokes are more detailed and natural, so your eyebrows won’t look like they were merely drawn or tattooed. This is perfect for those who want to maintain their perfect brow. An iBrow treatment can last from 10 to 18 months, sometimes even up to two years. Check out other details about iBrow here.

If you want the perfect brow, or a relaxing facial treatment, or even a simple manicure and pedicure; if you want to look and feel good, visit Aruga Aesthetic Center. They are open from 9am to 10pm, Monday to Saturday. Their clinic is located at Cornerstone Building, just beside Tadakuma Restaurant, along Ramon Chavez Street.
