Alvin Patrimonio undergoes Hair Transplant at MAXiM Manila, Philippines

Multi-titled PBA Legend Alvin Patrimonio visited the MAXiM Hair Restoration clinic in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, recently to avail of a hair restoration procedure called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUE is a no-stitch, no linear scar technique that takes individual grafts or follicular units from the back and sides of the head and transplants them to the thinning and balding areas. The result is permanent hair growth that is all natural because the transplanted hair is the patient’s own. There is very minimal discomfort felt during the procedure and recovery is faster.

The patient can return to normal activity in a day or two and expect a fuller head of hair in about six months, plus improved density within a year. Unlike other hair transplant clinics that offer multiple cosmetic procedures, MAXiM is entirely dedicated to surgical hair restoration and non-surgical scalp micropigmentation. The hair transplant procedure is performed by MAXiM doctors who are experienced plastic surgeons adept at performing medical aesthetic procedures. MAXiM Hair Restoration is the Manila, Philippines, branch of the New York City-based hair transplant company that also has offices in Long Island, Chicago, Dallas, D.C. Virginia Area, and Dubai.

Justice Delayed is Never Justice Denied in the Legal Drama “Conviction” to Premiere this July on Sony Channel

Compelling courtroom drama starts July 20, Thursdays at 8:50pm

PHILIPPINES (July 08, 2017) – This July, the fight for justice begins for those who have been wrongly convicted as they have one last hope for an acquittal in the legal procedural series Conviction on Sony Channel.

Highly skilled defense attorney Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell), who is also the daughter of a former U.S. president, is blackmailed into heading the newly created Conviction Integrity Unit (CIU), a department under the New York County District Attorney’s Office tasked to investigate cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction.

To avoid imprisonment and further embarrassment, Hayes reluctantly accepts her new job but realizes that this might be the opportunity for her to rebuild her integrity and gain the respect she deserves.

Every week, Hayes and her team of lawyers, investigators, and forensic experts work together to identify and examine cases that made the headlines. With only five days on each case, they have to determine if any evidence was tampered, a confession was invalid, or a witness has been compromised that might overturn the conviction.

To come to a conclusion, Hayes and her elite group will question if the system failed, if jobs were carried out, if there was a cover-up and – the most important of all – if justice was served.

Conviction premieres on July 20 and airs Thursday at 8:50pm, first and exclusive on Sony Channel.

Sony Channel is available on SKYCable Channel 35, Destiny Cable Channel 62, Cignal Channel 120, G Sat Channel 48, and Cablelink Channel 39.

Eustaquio is the only athlete from Team Lakay with an upcoming fight. He is scheduled to face Thailand’s Anatpong Bunrad in a highly-anticipated rematch of their 2015 encounter. The three-round flyweight contest is set for ONE: DYNASTY OF HEROES which will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 26 May.
