Last week, I went for my first consultation with Dr Jason Yip. Was advised not to go with any make up as the doctor has to examine the real skin conditions. I’ve been to facials, even tried acne medication but never to an Aesthetic Physician. It felt more like a spa center, not your typical doc-checkup kind place. Very clean, modern and sleek in design, which left me in a comfortable state.
The Drx Clinic has a counter where you register, and then a waiting area for you to see your doc, and a ‘pharmacy’ counter where you collect your prescribed Derma-Rx products.
The steps of the first consultation at DRx Clinic go like this:
1) Register – fill in a very simple form about your particulars.
2) See a doc – Doc examines your condition and advises which Derma-Rx products to include in your regime.
3) Consultant thoroughly explains the products prescribed for you and how to use them (this step takes place in another cubicle room).
4) Consultant brings you to another room to take photos of your skin. The photos are PNC and purely for reference
5) Wait to collect your products at pharmacy and make payment.
Dr Jason Yip was my doctor. A sweet, knowledgable man who made me feel comfortable during my consultation. You can find out more about Dr Yip here.
My consultation was very quick, first with doc asking me in detail about my skin regime, what I’ve used before, if I had used any medication and what were my concerns, along with his own assessment of my skin when I first stepped into the room. That concludes my first visit to DRx Clinic! My next consultation is one month later in January, where Dr. Yip will evaluate how well the products are working for me and will see if any tweaking is required of my regime. The combination of products prescribed to each patient is customised to their skin condition. Also worth pointing out that all their products have been at their own lab. Hence it is truly best to use all their products and not use any other external brand.
The combination of products prescribed to each patient is customised to his/her skin conditions, so it yields the best results. I had to apply my products in the following sequence, but it may be different for different people. What I got are: (Click to enlarge) Derma-Rx products work seamlessly in a 3-step system of Priming, Remedying, and Protecting your skin.
Looking forward to see whats the next step of my treatment.
