The premier Wellness brand, VLCC unveiled another path-breaking initiative in the weight management and wellness domain in the GCC region with the launch of its latest ultra hi-tech Slimming, Beauty & Fitness Center at Nad Al Hammar in Dubai, which will offer the entire bouquet of beauty, wellness and preventive healthcare services under one roof.
Vandana Luthra, Founder and Vice Chairperson, VLCC Group inaugurated the VLCC centre at a glittering ceremony. The function was also attended by fashion entrepreneurs, top UAE fashion and beauty bloggers led by the leading architect and fashion entrepreneur, Ms. Shahd Al Jumaily.
With the opening of this centre, VLCC now has a presence of six wellness centres in Dubai, 11 in the UAE and 20 across the GCC region, in addition to the 230 other centres in Kenya, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and Malaysia.
Equipped with the latest US-FDA and European-CE standard compliant appliances and trained staff, VLCC’s facility at Nad Al Hamar will offer the very latest in scientific weight management programs along with revolutionary skin, dermal cosmetology and hair care treatments as well as regular beauty services to improve the overall Wellness Quotient of both its male and female customers.
Speaking on the occasion, Founder & Vice Chairperson of VLCC, Mrs. Vandana Luthra said, “It is our ambition that going forward with the unmatched standards in slimming, beauty and fitness services that will be offered at this center, will play a key role in making VLCC emerge as a benchmark in the preventive healthcare and wellness domain in the UAE – something the people of Dubai and UAE could take pride in.”
Mrs. Luthra also expressed her and VLCC’s keenness to work closely with the Dubai Health Authority in tackling the issue of obesity, which has emerged as one of the major challenges confronting the global healthcare system at the moment, including that of the UAE.
“As a conscientious corporate citizen and a leading player in the preventive health-care domain, of which the wellness sector is an integral part, VLCC has always seen itself as a custodian of people’s health and wellbeing, and been acutely aware of the tremendous responsibilities that go with it,” Mrs. Luthra said.
Obesity is a major adult risk factor in the UAE, and the GCC region at large. The World Health Organization (WHO) says obesity may cause cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases and many types of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Elaborating on VLCC’s future plans for the UAE, Mrs. Luthra said VLCC is exploring the possibility of setting up its first VLCC Institute of Beauty & Nutrition in the country in the next 12 months so that more youth could take advantage of the skill development opportunities provided by the institute, which will enable them to find suitable jobs as also enable them to become self-employed in the fast growing beauty and wellness services industry. “Given that the beauty and wellness sector has traditionally employed more women than men, focusing on skill development in this arena will also contribute to making women become self-reliant,” Mrs. Luthra pointed out.
Mrs. Luthra also shared that VLCC recently launched BelleWave™, its premium Swiss line of professional skincare treatments and home-care products in the UAE and further plan to expand the distribution coverage of its VLCC Natural Sciences™ range of personal care products in the country. “I hope that VLCC’s growing presence in the UAE will further contribute in some humble way to strengthening the bilateral business relationship between India and the UAE,” Mrs. Luthra added.
