About Us

Novel Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgicenter

Növel is a Hungarian word which means to "enhance".

Novel Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgicenter is a total skin and body aesthetic clinic that specializes in providing skin health care, face and body enhancing treatments. We offer a wide range of skincare services and a synergy of non-invasive cosmetic dermatology as well as cutting edge cosmetic surgery. We aim to enhance or improve one’s physical attributes to inspire and boost self-esteem. We also believe in educating our patients to integrate beauty, wellness and health to achieve long lasting results.

Formerly known as Tanciangco's Derm-Med Center, the clinic started way back in 2002 at its first branch in Guagua, Pampanga. After the dermatology residency training of Dr. Ma. Christina L. Tanciangco in 2001, she started her practice in her hometown Guagua, Pampanga and three other nearby towns in Pampanga. Treating patients with skin diseases and beauty enhancement needs, her practice as a dermatologist soon became stable with a growing number of patients. She thought that there was already a need to put up a center for the convenience and satisfaction of all her patients.

Hence, Tanciangco’s Derm-Med Center was established in 2002 now providing a more complete service in the field of dermatology. Services include facials, body treatments, pathologic skin, hair and nails consultation and aesthetic dermatology. In June of 2003, Dr. Tanciangco married Dr. Julio P. Javier II. It was then that the second branch of Tanciangco’s Derm-Med Center was opened at Las Pinas City, the hometown of Dr. Javier, with a bigger and improved facility.

In 2010, after Dr. Jay Javier finished his training in General Cosmetic Surgery, the couple decided to add Cosmetic Surgery in their long list of services. A minor operating room with state of the art equipment was put up. With this breakthrough, it was determined that the name Tanciangco’s Derm-Med Center is no longer applicable to the new set up-  henceforth, the clinics officially then evolved into Növel Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgicenter.

Over the years, Növel Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgicenter continued to strenghten and innovate its services, keeping up with the latest breakthroughs to its center of wellness and confidence. It is by that passion and success that it opened it's third branch last July 2016 at the heart of country's business district- Makati City.
