It has been a year since my last facial treatment. Finally I was able to drag myself to Cardinal Santos Medical Center to pamper my skin.

My dermatologist, Dr. Grace Chua-Ty asked me, "What is your specific concern this time?" (It sounded like "You only go here when you have a major problem!! hahaha!!) She also asked me about my regimen. I said I've been using Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Essence and Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream in the past two months. She asked me if I don't get too oily. I love the Regenerist but the CC Cream feels heavy and greasy.

I have actually told her twelve months ago that I can't seem to find a toner that will suit me. She suggested that I try SkinMedica Purifying Toner for oily or acne-prone skin. I was advised to use it only at night. I'm using this for four days already and gladly there's no drying of the skin.

Even at age 38, I still suffer from breakouts whenever my hormones are crazily imbalanced. So that's once a month. I also have a zit problem on the chin area. It's because of the toothpaste. I have actually seen a VMV  Hypoallergenics toothpaste that do not cause pimples.

She also prescribed me the BPO + ERY Gel for spot treatment of my zits. She guaranteed that my pimples will dry up in two days. And yes, it's true!!!

My skin was a bit reddish especially on the cheeks area but the pimples on my chin area has flattened and dried up after two days. I vowed to undergo facial treatment as often as necessary (once every quarter I guess is a major improvement compared to once a year). 

My dermatologist holds clinic at Cardinal Santos Medical Center every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. On other days, you can have your consultation and treatments at Chinese General Hospital.


  1. Hi! May I ask how much is the consultation fee? Also the prices of her products? Someone recommended her to me and I'm glad I found your blog site and honestly I'm somewhat relieved after reading your "reviews" about her. Hope to hear from you! Cheers.

    Oh and thanks!

    1. Hi! Simple consultation is usually P500. Her products are reasonably priced similar to other derma. What I like about her is that she doesn't insist you to buy or use her products. She'll ask what you're using and if it works for you it's ok with her. She's super mabait.

    2. Hi Roselle! Thanks for your feedback, went to her clinic in Chinese Gen last Friday and everything you said about her is true. Thanks again!
