Silkor Holding celebrated yesterday the launch of its first Qatari Silkor center. Located in Doha’s Al Wa’ab Street, the regionally acclaimed Silkor chain opened its new 800 square meters, 12 rooms branch, few months ago.  Established in 1997, the company has grown from humble beginnings in Beirut to a strong chain of prestigious laser hair removal and skincare centers, offering state of the art medico-aesthetic services and treatments in most GCC and Levant markets including UAE, Oman, and Lebanon. 

Oscar Darakjian, CEO and Chairman of Silkor Holding said; “The new branch opening here in Doha today is part of what has been a whirlwind expansion for us in the GCC and Levant.  It is truly inspiring to be in Doha to open the first Silkor branch in Qatar.  Qatar is a market we are confident to invest in, the Qatari economy is one of the strongest, most rapidly growing in the world, and at Silkor, we are delighted to take this opportunity to cement our presence here”. 

The first Silkor branch will offer the same variety of services which has helped build Silkor’s market leadership position in the region, including Laser Hair Removal, Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing, Facials treatments, Diamond Micro-Dermabrasion, Botox, Fillers, Peels, Mesotherapy, Laser tattoo removal and Slimming treatments. Laser hair removal has revolutionized the medico-aesthetic world as unlike traditional methods, laser hair removal can provide safe and permanent results. 

Lara Tarakjian, Silkor, Executive Director and Board Member commented; “We are delighted to bring Silkor quality to a new market and excited to be here in Qatar.There is a genuine demand for Silkor services here as approximately 10 per cent of our clientele are Qatari residents who fly to our Lebanon and UAE branches for treatment. Customer-focused, we are constantly introducing new therapies and service additions and special offers that new and existing customers alike can take advantage of.  Silkor is unique in the way it is genuinely committed to customers’ well-being; our treatments are performed by highly skilled and experienced medical professionals but in a relaxing, spa-like environment rather than a clinical one”. 

Current special promotions include an offer of five free assorted facials when customers purchase a full body hair laser-removal package.

 A new state-of-the-art service additions include Fractional CO2 Resurfacing Lumenis, which corrects wrinkles, scars and pigment problems, Laser Hair Removal Lumenis Duet which is proven to reduce treatment times by as much as 75 per cent with minimal discomfort and Vela shape II which reduces the appearance of cellulite and reshapes the body form. 

Silkor has already announced plans to open a second Qatari branch at the new, Doha-based Lagoona Mall in Q3 2011. Silkor is also planning its first European launch with a new centre in France.
