Halley Medical Aesthetics
Dr Terence Tan Reviews
My names Deborah and I had recently gone to tiffany yang for my under eye filler and there was no difference in the result. I went to her n showed her my eyes and after a long discussion she was unable to xplain and I walked out from Der. I was very upset as I wasted a good amount of money and I had to get it fixed so I was on the look for a good experienced doc and I came across Halley clinic I went to the clinic . I loved the happy smiling staff and meeting doc terence was a pleasure .he carefully listened to me and suggested me to go for fillers so he could mend the areas that were not good and my husband watched the whole process of how Dr terence worked his way with the canulla distracting me from the pain like a doctor does to the kids hehe it was sweet. After fillers were done we were so impressed my husband couldn't belive how good Dr was... I thank doctor terence from my heart for making me smile and forget ma past experience. And yes I definitely will only get all ma future procedures from halley clinic only. And guys I am not a payed client so this review is 100% genuine . and I highly recommend this clinic per my experience.
Been a customer of Halley Medical Aesthetics since 2016. Would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a reliable aesthetic doctor. Dr Terence was always patient and would thoroughly explain the procedures that I’m considering. He would honestly point out the pro and cons of the procedures and put me at ease. I’m delighted with the high level of professionalism from dr Terence and his staff. Highly recommend!!
Not recommended. I feel the doctor only personally service high value customers or people who can promote their services like bloggers. I went for 12 sessions of Coolsculpting & was sold another 12 sessions of Exilis which was highly recommended for optimum results. In total, I've spent about $14k & I'm into 10th month now. Regretfully, I am exactly the same as when I started, even though my exercise regime (3-4 times a week) & diet has been unchanged.
Right from start, I had informed the staff that my concern is my belly area & I want to look trim in my exercise wear. I am not so concerned with weight loss. However, about a month after I started my sessions & seeing no results, they offered me weight loss pills so that I can see results faster. I was a bit taken back cos they do not seem to be sharing my concerns & quick to offer shortcuts to see results. I was willing to wait a long time for the Coolsculpting treatments to show results. Through my sessions, I saw the doctor only when I did my Coolsculpting. His assistant would first draw out areas on my body where the doctor will put on the applicators. One time when I did my flanks, his assistant drew in such a way that I felt was wrong. When the doctor came in to check (as usual looking busy all the time), he took a quick look & said ' looks great!' & wanted to start the procedure. At this time, I questioned the doctor why must the applicators be horizontally placed? Can it be placed diagonally to maximise the suction of fats on my flanks? Then, he agreed & redrew the whole area that he agreed was better. When I asked him why did he approve the first drawing by his staff, he replied back that different people have different preferences! This is totally nonsensical! He is supposed to be the expert in this area not me! From then on, I know the this is a doctor who does not really care too much about his customers' concerns. His staff is also not very competent as I have come across one who did exilis for me & caused much pain until I had to insist another more competent staff to take over.
I have learned from this expensive experience to be wary of those aesthetic clinics that engages a lot of bloggers to promote their services.
Dr Terence tan is a very patient doctor, he is a very meticulous doctor. I did my stretch Marks treatment here. Signed 6 sessions and see slight improvement and lightening of the stretch Marks appearance even though not totally gone, but a little improvement is a good start rather than not doing anything to my stretch Marks. He will gradually increase the intensity of the treatment for every visit and ask how is the recovery rate of the skin after each session before he begin a new session. The assistant nurse will help the doctor to find stretch Marks spot incase they miss any. Price is reasonable and affordable. Dr Terence usually wont leave any spot undone (quite thorough I must say), he will always ask the patient if he miss any spot before ending the session. I did cynosure laser for my whole body stretch marks (breast, hips , inner arms, inner thigh, back arms, buttock, calves, lower back) , application of numbing cream and waiting the cream to take effect takes about 20 min to 25 mins, another 35 to 40 min for the treatment. Once every 2 month for the treatment. You might need to buy depigmentation cream and recovery cream to speed up recovery. The nurse is also very friendly and respectful. They have quite a number of japanese nurse here though which is special and cater to their japanese customer! Thanks to dr terence and their nurses in the clinic 🙂 this is my honest review.
Visited Dr Tan abt a year ago after reading several online good reviews for Ultherapy and never regretted my decision! Dr Tan has been extremely patient and offered several useful tips for skincare. Took up their weight loss program and lost a few kgs (I didn’t exercise!) over a couple of months. Am satisfied with the results and will definitely recommend the clinic to my friends. 😊
Did fractional CO2 laser for the first time about a month ago and suffered from a bad rash (had to be on both oral and topical steroid and the rash lasted for more than a week) on most of my face where the laser was done. Doctor was very defensive when I went back to see him and thinks that it is very unlikely to be because of his treatment, more likely to be because of my lifestyle/products I use/some underlying health conditions I don't know. Consulted another doctor who gave a different opinion though but well, different doctors can have different clinical judgement am I right?
Wanted to schedule another appointment 2-3 weeks after the onset of the rash because my skin integrity looks and feels worse than before the laser but the doctor wanted to charge me for consultation. There is nothing wrong I guess, since it's his clinic and his rules. Also, I want to highlight that a few months ago, someone else left a review saying that most of the good reviews left on this page has only 1 review. Wish I saw that earlier.
TLDR - if you decide to proceed with this clinic, pray that it goes well.
Always an amazing experience here! Have been coming regularly for 3 years. Dr. Tan and staff are super friendly and personable, not to mention skilled and very professional. 5 stars all the way, and I would highly recommend:)
Unfortunately, I wasted my money here. I had done the same treatment at a couple of other clinics prior to coming to Singapore and always felt more confident about how the treatment was being carried out and saw MUCH better, more visible end results.
The doctor here tried to up-sell me by telling me about additional problems he noticed that needed treating which felt unprofessional and in the end I left feeling worse about myself overall rather than better. Not what you come to an aesthetic clinic for!
Feels like there is some great sales and marketing going on here. Just be aware that many of the positive reviewers haven’t left many other reviews!
Very nice and friendly staff. I am very impressed with the service provided by Mandy on my second treatment. She is very attentive and will show extra care and concern during treatment to make sure that I don’t feel any discomfort. She is very friendly and I enjoyed the session each time with her as my therapist. She does not hard sell the treatment or products but when asked, she will give suggestions or alternate treatments. She makes me feel very comfortable and has always shown a very warm and smiley face on every time I see her.
Been visiting this place for years and I feel that Dr Tan has always made sure his patients are well taken care of. I have utmost trust in his recommendations and there isn't hard sell here.
What attracted me from the beginning was the transparent pricing. I have never seen an aesthetics clinic put up their prices on their website – appreciate this a lot!
I also enjoyed the services given by therapist Mandy, not because she shares my name but because she is meticulous and gentle with her touch.
Thank you Dr Tan and Mandy!
