Like most of us, Kathryn Bernardo also did her part to help flatten the curve by staying home. But with the general enhanced community quarantine has come work obligations, which started for the actress on Monday this week.
In preparation for this, Kathryn paid a visit to The Aivee Clinic, completing her cool cropped top and loose trousers look with a protective mask and glasses. In this video shared by The Aivee Clinic (@theaiveeclinic) on Instagram, the actress shared that she and her family had just been home for the past three months, and that it was her first time out after lockdown. She even mentioned in another video shared by Dr. Aivee Teo that it was her beau, Daniel Padilla, who had been bringing groceries to them during quarantine.
Dr. Aivee captioned her post: "@bernardokath’s first stop after the lockdown is the @theaiveeclinic. @bernardokath was last one I saw before the lockdown and now she is one of the firsts to be back here at @theaiveeclinic."
The clinic, which also welcomed other celebrities like Bea Alonzo, Nadine Lustre, Megan Young, and Kylie Verzosa recently, has put into place a four-step safety protocol for its patients, apart from a by-appointment system to prevent overcrowding.
Kathryn demonstrates the first three steps in this video.
“I feel safe, as soon as I entered the clinic, because they follow safety protocols,”says Kath. Upon arrival, her body temperature was read by a thermal scanner. Next, she disinfected her hands and sanitized her shoes with the help of a dispenser and foot bath before entering the clinic. The fourth step was a COVID-19 rapid test before treatment, “just to make sure na safe lahat,”says the actress. (Note: Clients are given the option to take the test at the clinic and are informed when they make an appointment.)
She also mentioned that seeing the clinic’s staff in PPEs, all non-medical suits made by designer Mark Bumgarner, and how the whole place was sanitized before she entered added to that feeling of safety. Dr. Aivee tells Preview that “all suites are sanitized after each use, before and after each patient,” and they go through overnight disinfection with a UV lamp sterilization machine. An Aivee Robot Artificial Intelligence machine also regularly disinfects the hallway and lobby during work hours. Apart from the PPEs, face shields, and eye shields, all Aivee staff are tested for COVID-19 every 7 days using a rapid test kit, and they go through temperature checks twice a day.
For now, the clinic is open for consultations and treatments for common skin concerns like acne, exzema, allergies, dry skin, burns, psoriasis, and the like. Dr. Aivee also told Preview that “Yes, we are now allowed to perform pathologic and aesthetic procedures now.” For inquiries, you can contact The Aivee Clinic at cel. no. 0917 728 3838, tel. no. 8573 1420, or visit theaiveeclinic.com.
“I’m just happy to be back here, and I can’t wait for my treatments,” Kathryn said in the video, a smile visible in her eyes behind her protective glasses. A good skin check makes us feel great, too!
