From beauty to food, fitness, real estate, and more, Mars Abesamis Balajadia shares how she successfully turned her passions into a business.

Mars Abesamis Balajadia is into the business of passion. Every project she pours herself into is an extension of who she is and what she likes. Currently, she sits as the Vice President and COO of DM Co., which houses businesses like Mecca Aesthetic Clinic and Spa, Stoned Steaks, Ponce Tapas and Wine, Mines View Park Hotel in Baguio, The 3rd Fitness Lab, and Onward Realty Inc (Leasing).

From her love for beauty to her love of travel, there is no shortage of inspiration for Mars.

Beauty for Everyone

Mecca Aesthetic Clinic and Spa operated as a spa for its first three years but soon expanded as an aesthetic clinic— offering non-invasive to minimally-invasive machine treatments, injectables, and facial services. “I have always been very much interested in the beauty and wellness industry,” Mars began. “[But] I saw that there were a lot of young people who have beauty concerns but are intimidated to seek help from bigger clinics.”

Thus, she describes Mecca as a “beauty paradise for the younger generation.” With its chic and laid-back interiors—dressed in champagne and pink-colored sofas, palm trees, and duvet-covered beds—everything is made to feel like a vacation.
