Overview

Having graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), Dr. Chua Cheng Yu went on to obtain the prestigious post-graduate surgical qualifications from the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) from Edinburgh.

Through a wide range of clinical rotations, ranging from critical care to various surgical fields, he gained a broad understanding of the medical field before choosing to pursue a career in aesthetic medicine.

Certified by the ADEG in Singapore, he is fully certified to perform a large range of procedures, such as Botulinum Toxin injections, dermal fillers, skin peels, medical IPL and lasers. His previous training in various surgical departments, including facial plastics surgery, also gave him a good understanding of facial anatomy, a pair of steady hands and a keen eye for detail.

He has also presented and participated in local and overseas conferences to widen his exposure in the field. Tapping on his previous experience as a surgeon and his accreditation with the RCS, Dr Chua’s expertise lies in using safe and effective techniques for invasive procedures such as minimally invasive face lifting, botulinum toxin and filler injections. He advocates that the art of aesthetics has to be applied on a scientific basis with solid clinical evidence, which he applies to his skin treatments as well as other aesthetic enhancements. He firmly believes that the concept of beauty is a complex one that requires meticulous detail, artistry and subtlety, and a good appreciation of these factors enable him to create natural looking, personalised and lasting results for his patients.

Dr Chua’s passion for aesthetic medicine is a merger of his appreciation of the fine arts, together with his deep interest to heal and help others with medicine. He was a musician in his younger days and now plays the guitar, piano and saxophone for leisure. Besides music, he is an amateur photographer with interest in potrait and landscape photography. Dr Chua also volunteers regularly as a doctor to migrant workers to give back to the community.

I suffered from skin dryness a few months back which caused my skin to flake around my mouth and on my temples. The flaky skin had caused me much distress to the point where I did not want to go to work or meet my friends. I felt really insecure. I went to consult an aesthetic physician but the topical creams he prescribed me did not help much. I was desperate for help and was browsing the web extensively for a solution.

I came across DoctorxDentist and decided to ask for a treatment quote in hopes of getting my skin treated. Dr Chua Cheng Yu from Veritas Medical Aesthetics Clinic responded to me via email and gave me prompt advice for my skin condition. His clinic then further contacted me for a consultation so that Dr Chua could better analyse my skin condition and give me further advice. An appointment was quickly arranged for me.

During the consultation, Dr Chua recommended the Rejuran healer treatment to me. He patiently explained what the treatment was, how it would help with my skin condition and showed before/after photos so that I could see the difference. It was also through him that I got to know that the gold standard for Rejuran is through manual injection instead of using the injector gun which may cause bruising.

Throughout the entire consultation, Dr Chua was very patient and reassuring and I decided to proceed with the Rejuran treatment. On the day of treatment, numbing cream was administered onto my entire face which took about 45 minutes. Thereafter, Dr Chua manually injected Rejuran onto my entire face. It was a simple procedure which took about 15mins to complete.

The microinjections were slightly painful but Dr Chua’s reassurance made the process very bearable and pleasant. There was no downtime except for little bumps on the face, which subsided within a day or two. Within 1-2 weeks after the first Rejuran treatment, the dryness has improved tremendously and my skin had healed completely. There was no more flaky skin. After my second Rejuran treatment (spaced one month apart), some of my friends have commented that there is a healthy glow on my face.

My skin tone has improved and my complexion has become visibly fairer. I am very satisfied with the Rejuran results. It is one of the best decisions made and I have never looked back since. I am also very honoured to have met Dr Chua who is such a sincere, reassuring and patient doctor! I will definitely recommend my friends to Dr Chua for Rejuran and/or other treatments for their skin concerns 👍🏻!

My first visit to Dr Chua was a very comfortable one. Generally, I felt that he showed genuine concern about my condition as he also probed for more details (such as acne history etc.).

Thereafter, he explained to me the different options that were available to me (antibiotics, topical creams as well as lasers), and also explained to me the purpose of each type of treatment well.

There was no hard-selling of any specific treatment, and he allowed me time to think through the different options. Initially, I was hesitant to try the laser (Fotona) due to bad experiences in a beauty salon, but his confidence in his laser treatment swayed me to give it a try, since the first trial promotion was affordable to me.

More than a week post-treatment, with the combination of antibiotics, topical cream and the Fotona laser, my acne cleared up significantly with no new flareups.

Dr Chua is also very easy going and friendly, I've had my second appointment with him and it was also a very pleasant experience. Would have wished to have met him earlier before my condition worsened! I do look forward to a journey of clearing up my acne/scars with him moving forward. Cheers!

I have acne prone skin and it left me with many scars that even make up can't cover. I see vast improvement after the 3rd session. The scars lightened significantly and most importantly I don't get much pimples anymore. Dr Chua is very patient. He knows my threshold for pain is low, so he recommended treatments that are suitable for me.

I am overall satisfied with the treatment I received from Veritas Aesthetic. Dr Chua & his staff were very friendly. They made me felt very comfortable on my first treatment. I didn't regret choosing Veritas & Dr Chua for my aesthetic needs.

I've never felt so hydrated & acne free ever since I had Rejuran! It's definitely a healer!!! Will be doing it frequently! Thanks Dr Chua!

How can I reduce the oiliness of my skin?

Dear Joey, I agree with Dr Colin that proper skincare routine can help with oily skin (AHA and BHA cleansers especially), and also that oral isotretinoin is very good for controlling oily skin. However, most of my patients prefer not to take oral isotretinoin because of its teratogenic risk as well ...

Can armpit freckles be removed with laser treatment?

Hi RH, Laser treatment is the way to remove this type of unwanted pigmentation. A variety of lasers from Q-switched short pulse, long pulse and even ablative lasers can be useful to remove this. It is also possible for the freckles to darken after the first treatment. I would recommend you discuss t...

Is Rejuran effective for improving skin texture and pore size?

Hi Claire, Thanks for the question. A Rejuran treatment uses injectable polynucleotides to rejuvenate the skin, so it should work to improve the concerns which you have mentioned. Even as a topical cream, polynucleotides were proven to improve skin elasticity and hydration. As an injectable, two of ...

How much do dermal fillers cost in Singapore?

Hi Sarah, There are two types of approved fillers in Singapore for use in those areas you mentioned: temporary or semipermanent fillers. Examples of the former: Teosyal, Belotero, Juvederm, Restylane, Revanesse, or Elravie (the list goes on). For the latter: Radiesse and Ellanse are commonly used. F...

Should I go for nose threadlift or nose fillers in Singapore?

Hi Janice, Both doctors are right in that threadlifts are safer in general. However threads have their limitations when it comes to adding volume and height, as well as to contour the nose accurately (e.g. nose humps or dents). In those scenarios, a filler would be more useful. I would suggest findi...

What should I look out for in choosing an aesthetic clinic in Singapore?

How to get rid of acne marks? (photo)

Hi J, If I hear you correctly, you have red marks left from previous acne. These are not obvious on your picture indeed, but they are a very common sequela of acne vulgaris.

What are recommended methods for permanent hair removal in darker skin tones?

Hi Sharon,
I agree with Dr Winston, definitely do not attempt IPL. Electrolysis can be very time consuming for large body parts as each hair follicle has to be treated individually, and it can be painful as well.
I would suggest Diode or Long Pulse ND:Yag for laser hair removal. It is much more effi...
