Even before she gives birth, there already is solution to Iya Villania's possible stretch marks.

It's a laser technology called Cutera, which is available in Calayan Surgicentre, which is being endorsed by the preggy host.

The beauty clinic's owner Dr. Manny Calayan said, "Ayun nga manganganak siya, so hinihintay namin yung stretch marks," which happens when the skin is constantly stretched due to extreme changes in weight thus causing the dermis to break down, leaving stretch marks behind.

Back to Iya, doesn't pregnancy have any effect on her endorsements?

Dra. Pie, the other face of Calayan Surgicentre, replied, "Mas maganda, ibig sabihin nabubuntis ang mga endorsers namin, magaganda kasi.

"'Tsaka ibig sabihin, pag nanganak siya, ayaw nga niya ng stretch marks."

Their other endorser is Solenn Heussaff, who recently became Mrs. Nico Bolzico in France last May 21.

Laughing, Dr. Manny threw in, “We are happy for her! At least mabenta yung mga endorsers natin."

How about bashing? Their newest male endorser, Gab Valenciano, is a controversy magnet on social media.

Dr. Manny threw in, “Hindi. Pag maraming bashers, ibig sabihin sikat ka.

"Pag maraming haters at bashers, maraming naiinggit.”

Even Dr. Manny and Dra. Pie have their share of bashers, and the best way to deal with them, according to the couple, is "dedma."

Dra. Pie added, "Sanay na sanay na sanay na kami. Super sanay. As in kahit face-to-face, naka-smile pa rin kami.

"Ganun na lang kasi may karma naman.

"Kasi kung hindi naman sila tao, bakit mo naman papatulan ang hayop, di ba?”

Besides, a lot of these bashers are just hiding behind invented usernames.

Dra. Pie resumed, “At nag-iimbento ng kuwento. Hindi ko alam kung saan nila nakukuha yung ga kuwentong ganun."

MORE NEW ENDORSERS. Meanwhile, in addition to Gab, the mom-daughter tandem of Pilita Corrales and Jackie Lou Blanco recently joined Calayan's roster of endorsers.


Dr. Manny said, “Nito lang February sila pumasok."

The two will promote the skin-tightening procedure.

"'Tapos Cebuana beauties kaya kinuha ko sila for Cebu.”

Their newly-overhauled branch will open in the said city come July. 

Dr. Manny said, “’Yung renovation naganap nung March, two months siyang ni-renovate.

"Basically ayun, maganda yung mga rooms na nagdagdag ng mga rooms, and then nagdagdag din tayo ng new lasers, mga state-of-the-art lasers for scars, for pigmentation, for hair removal 'tsaka varicose veins, 'tsaka yung nag-upgrade din tayo ng fraxel for acne scars naman yun."

It will be be pretty much like their clinic in Medical Plaza building where this interview took place.

The couple will be available at their clinic in Cebu's SM Seaside "every weekend."

MORE BRANCHES. Aside from their branches in Cebu, Medical Plaza, and Timog Avenue in Quezon City, two more clinics will open in Festival Mall, Alabang, in March 2017, and SM Premier in Davao City this November.

Lastly, Dr. Manny said, "Yung Baguio naman, wala pang space for SM Baguio, waitlisted."
