Let Me Tell You An Inspirational Story About A Little Boy's Dream.

The little boy was born in 1968s in a small village at the foot of a mountain called Bekok, in Johor. In those years, the healthcare service of the village was poor. Whenever the villagers suffered from illness, they would first consider the traditional self-treatment methods. If not feasible, they trudged out to seek professional medical treatment. The railway was the most convenient way to the urban areas. Although it only took an hour to get to Kluang to see a doctor, villagers had to spend an entire day from the departure to the clinic and back to the village.

As villagers, the little boy and his family had suffered many times from an illness. The illness was sometimes aggravated by the delay of the golden time of treatment, due to transportation, and that prolonged the rehabilitation period. The ordeal inadvertently sowed the seeds of the little boy's dream of becoming a doctor one day to take away the pain from him and others.

At that time, becoming a doctor was a dream for many. However, for a little boy living in the rural and undeveloped area, it was a distant and fantastic dream due to the lack of healthcare accommodation and education facilities.

At the age of 8, the little boy decided to leave home, to leave the village, and go to school in the urban area. In his opinion, the only way to have the opportunity to chase his dream is to go out of the village.

He left his hometown and was forced to learn to grow. During those hard years, the little boy's soul was lonely, and from time to time, he hoped to receive warmth and care from others. However, it was his choice to leave, hence, wanting to go home was no longer an excuse for him. Painting became a way to strengthen the little boy's soul in those lonely years. Besides killing time, he gained happiness and satisfaction from painting.

After graduating from middle school in Malaysia, he traveled to India to study medicine.

He was nineteen years old at this time, so he was no longer a ‘little boy’. He took off with the blessings and support of his family, along with his own dream.

During his studying days in India, he spared no effort to overcome his academic difficulties. However, he was also admitted to the hospital three times because of an illness. Without the care of his dearest, the boy bravely fought against the disease in the hospital, feeling the pain, helplessness, and the desire to love as a patient.

Finally, in 1996, the little boy fulfilled his childhood dream, formally put on his white coat and earned his title - Dr. Yap. In the same year, Dr. Yap had his own family and career.

In 2001, Dr. Yap established a private clinic in an inland village in Segamat, called Klinik Yap. Since its operation, he had studied hard and wished to be a know-it–all in medicine. He did not want the villagers to face the delays and inconveniences that he had experienced before. He hoped that his clinic could become a one-stop healthcare service for patients of all ages. When specialist treatment is necessary, patients are advised to visit Malacca or Johor Bharu. During that time, the clinics received a wide range of patients, from infants to seniors, from head to toe, and from surgery to medicine.

Since the clinic was located on the edge of a rural area with a poor health history, Dr. Yap later faced some patients with tough skin problems, which motivated him to study dermatology. In 2008, he decided to study at the Department of Dermatology at Cardiff University in England. In the meantime, he had the opportunities to visit hospitals in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom to learn more about skin diseases. Later, Dr. Yap’s career gradually moved from skin treatment to a new field --aesthetic medicine. To enter the field, he participated in the skin beauty cases, ranging from the initial acne treatment to the subsequent elimination of acne scars, and then extended to wrinkle removal and skin contour modification.

Between 2013 and 2014, Dr. Yap’s life was in conflict.

Due to the increased number of aesthetic medicine clients, the operation in clinics was indirectly affected. At that point, he was struggling because there was a lot of new knowledge to practice and a lot of new technology to learn in his new exploring field, and there were so many patients waiting for treatment in the clinic every day. During that time, he was in string feelings of time flies, anxious about not doing everything well and not taking good care of every client.

Of course, the clinic that has been in operation for more than a decade is the main source of his income. He has a stable business relationship and patient base; however, in the field of aesthetic medicine, there are many innovative technologies that inspired his keen interest and eagerness to learn. In many cases, he saw that after his treatment, the customer built self-confidence and became better, and the feeling of the accomplishment made him very happy. He often shared with people: "Aesthetic medicine is a combination of medicine and art.” Every time he finishes his treatment, he feels the same feeling of happiness and satisfaction as painting during his childhood.

The year 2015 is another turning point in his life.

He left Segamat and closed his "Klinik Yap” that he had operated for more than 10 years.

At the right time, he bravely took another step in his life and wished to give himself a special gift.
"Change the existing lifestyle and do the things that I like," he said.

Dr. Yap went to Malacca, where he had always wanted to spend the rest of his life, to develop his "zero" market - Yap’s Clinic.

He said that he came to Malacca with nothing in his pockets. With his simple idea of starting a business fifteen years ago, he emphasized the core value of “starting from zero and doing a good job in the right way.”

He established a platform in Malacca and said, “Let's start from zero and work from the heart.”

Dr. Yap often joked about his 15-year experience with his clients. He shared that during the past 15 years, Klinik Yap had been full of patients and always waiting for his arrival. He had to work all day to fight all kinds of difficult diseases for his patients. He undertook the so-called missions of "bring patients back to life," "excellent doctor," and "benevolent mind and heart" for 15 years. Now, in this new Yap’s Clinic, there are people who visit the clinic just as a result of curiosity. Due to the very few customers, every ring of the doorbell would give him strong motivation and a big surprise!

He cherishes and thanks everyone who comes in because they come for his fame, willing to give him opportunities and trust, and willing to cooperate with him to share his expectations and changes in aesthetic medicine. As time passes, the new clients become familiar guests, and then they become best friends.

The return clients are the source of his confidence, with him cherishing the trust of everyone, this fate, and the unique friendship it brings.

Dr. Yap is also touched by the love and care from his client. Sometimes, clients will bring him souvenirs and share food with him. In his spare time, they will share their life stories with Dr. Yap.

Yap’s Clinic is not only an aesthetic clinic that provides aesthetic medical service, it also gives people a kind of family feeling.

In 2016, due to the increased number of clients, the clinic’s clients gradually developed from Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand; and in the north region, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Thailand, and China. This prompted Dr. Yap to never stop and encouraged him to strengthen the mission of aesthetic medicine. At first, he visited many countries at his own expense, such as Korea, Thailand, Japan, and Singapore. Later, he was invited to Paris and Barcelona to attend seminars in the field of skin beauty, and later, he was promoted to a training speaker.

In 2018, Dr. Yap moved the Yap’s Clinic to a newly purchased building, in hopes of providing clients a more comfortable environment and a convenient parking facility. For a long time, in addition to self-value-added, he would rather have liked to be of benefit to his clients. Although he is also willing to share his customers with more advanced aesthetic medicine efficacy.

He would like to thank all the people who gave him great support, motivation, trust, and encouragement.

Indeed, Dr. Yap showed his passion for his career while dealing with clients.

He said that every treatment, every person he met not only enriched his academic experience, but also enriched his life. He is always grateful to the challenges of his life. Because of those challenges in the past, now he received endurance and perseverance.

He said with a smile: “I am so happy because we are together!”

He is also willing to share his academic knowledge and experience with everyone.

Welcome to Yap’s Clinic.


When Beauty Meets Science Yap's Clinic, skin specialist melaka, skin clinic in melaka, aesthetic clinic melaka, cosmedic clinic melaka, botox and filler injections, laser treatment melaka

First started off as a private practice, Dr Yap Hong Keong set up his clinic, "KLINIK YAP in 2001 in northern Johor. During his years of service, he noticed the increasing demands of patients with troubled skin such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, sensitive skin and pigmentation, just to name a few. There was also a lack of experts to fulfil the growing market's demand for dermatological treatments. Although most of Dr.Yap's patients might have certain treatments for functional reasons, aesthetics drives most of the demand today. The era of internet, globalization and popularity of selfie further fuelled the need to look camera-ready at all times. To meet this increasing market demand, Dr Yap pursued a Diploma in Dermatology from University of Cardiff, United Kingdom and trained in hospitals in United Kingdom and Hong Kong after graduation. Furthermore, his experience, knowledge and expertise have carned him a seat as a certified board member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM).


The Solution the aesthetic clinic, skin specialist melaka

As Dr Yap pursued further in aesthetics, he realized the potential of the modern cutting-edge technologies in aesthetic medicine to treat various skin problems and at the same time provide effective and noticeable results. Fulfilling the increasing demand of non-surgical forms of cosmetic treatments, Dr Yap invested in the P-Nain Intense Pulse Light to effectively eliminate acne inflammation, prevent re-occurrence of severe acne and promote skin rejuvenation. Greatly impressed by the industry's fast-evolving technology, Dr Yap invested in the CO2 Laser, used for skin resurfacing to eliminate acne scars to reveal softer, smoother skin. Next, he moved on to Q-switched Nd:YAG to reduce pigmentation, the solution to many patients who desire fairer and even skin tone. With burning passion and an eye for detail for beauty, Dr Yap delved into the field and expanded his practice to include various facial aesthetic treatments from reducing wrinkles and fine lines to skin toning and lifting, and enhancing the nose, lips and chin in minimally-invasive ways. On par with the changing trends in aesthetics, he offers Korean-inspired blepharoplasty and face lift using innovative threads Dr Yap also explored the use of Platelet Rich Plasma. In addition to treating joint pain, this anti-ageing therapy can be used to treat the face, neck and scalp to strengthen the existing collagen formation and promote the proliferation of growth factors. This treatment gives such encouraging outcome, resulting in it being one of the most used methods for face rejuvenation.


The Learning Never Stops

Dr Yap continues to keep abreast with the new advancement of technologies in the field by attending numerous study trips to Korea, one of the world's most exciting and fast-paced beauty markets. During these trips, Dr Yap met a number of global counterparts where they shared experiences and knowledge, and studied the mechanism of the machinery as well as discussed on how to integrate these revolutionary technologies into aesthetic medicine. Besides attending training from local medical instructors, Dr Yap trains abroad from time to time, enhancing his skills from various experts in United Kingdom, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippine, Taiwan, Singapore and Korea.


The Core of The Practice

Dr Yap found that the core of aesthetic medicine is to experience subtle change, improving the appearance in a gradual manner, so much so that others will notice your changes but no one will know how you did it! That's what he means for holding back the years......


The Years Ahead

The year 2015 brings another excitement to Dr Yap's practice as he expanded his service to Malacca and established "Yap's Clinic" armed with a new aspiration to benefit more people with his expertise by providing customized aesthetics, and skin solutions and treatments.

让我给您说个山脚下小男孩圆梦的故事……

有个小男孩出生于1968年代,柔佛州一个名为彼咯(Bekok)山脚下的村庄。那些年,村庄的医疗设备贫乏,村民们若有病痛,会先采用传统医疗法自行治疗;若不可行,才跋涉远途出外寻医。铁路是当时通往城区最为便利的管道,虽然前往居銮市区寻医的路程为一小时,但从出发到医所至返回村庄,村民不得不耗上一天的时间!

小男孩与家人多次经历病痛的折磨,再因医所与村庄的距离问题而耽误治疗的黄金时期而使病情恶化,也延长修复期的窘境。这磨难无意间洒下了小男孩“医生梦”的种子,他梦想他日成为一名医生,为自己,也为他人减轻病痛。

当时,想成为一名医生是很多人心中的梦想,而对于住在山脚下村庄里的小男孩,更是一个遥不可及,妙想天开的“梦”,因为在那村庄缺乏的除了医疗设备,也面对教育设施的匮乏。

8岁那年,小男孩决定离家,离开那个村庄,往城市里去就学。他想,只有走出去,才有改变的力量,才有追“梦”的机会!

小男孩只身离乡背井,被迫学习成长。在那寄人篱下,自力更生的岁月里,小男孩的内心是孤单的,更不时渴望温情与关怀。然而,离家是自己的抉择,“想回家”已经不可成为撒娇的借口了!后来,在孤单的日子里,画画成了滋补小男孩的心灵鸡汤,除了以画消磨时间,他更从中获取了乐趣及莫名的快乐与满足。

中五毕业以后,小男孩飞往印度学医。

此时,小男孩已经十九岁,不再是小男孩了,他带着家人的祝福与支持,带着自己的梦想起飞……

在印度学医的日子,他除了竭力克服课业上的困难,也三次不幸因病魔侵袭而入院就医。在没有亲人的呵护下,小男孩独自在医院里勇敢地与病魔搏斗,更感同身受病患的痛苦,无助与对关爱的渴望。

终于,1996年,小男孩实现了儿时的“梦”,正式披上白袍,踏上行医路,成了“叶医生”,并在当年,立业、成家。

2001年,叶医生在昔加末(Segamat)的一个内陆乡区设私立家诊所——叶医生药房。开业以后,他无间断地精进学习,期许自己能成为“医疗万事通”,只因他不希望村民们面对从前自己和家人所经历过的寻医时的延误与不便,希望能够成为各个年龄层的病患提供一站式普通家庭疾病的咨询服务,惟在病患需要专科治疗时,才逼不得已推荐他们到马六甲或新山就医。因此那个时候的诊所,从幼儿到年老的病人,从头发到脚趾的疾病,从外科到内科的奇难杂症无所不有。

由于诊所坐落在卫生水平欠佳的乡区边缘,后来叶医生面对一些比较棘手的皮肤问题,由此激发了他学习皮肤科的意愿。2008年,他修读英国Cardiff University的皮肤科系。间中有机会到香港和英国的医院学习看诊皮肤病病患,也对皮肤疾病有更深一层的认识。随后,叶医生又从“皮肤医疗”,慢慢地走入了另一个领域——“医美”。他参与的医美范围从初始的痘痘治疗到随后的消除痘疤,再延伸至除皱、脸皮轮廓修饰,这样逐步开启了医美之路……

2013年至2014年间,叶医生的人生陷入矛盾挣扎。

因为“医美”的顾客群增多,间接影响了诊所“医疗”的运作。那个时候,他心里是非常挣扎的,因为在新接触的医美领域里,有太多学会了的新学识要去实践,有太多的新科技要去学习;同时,每天都有许多门诊顾客在诊所等侯治疗。那段日子,他处在一个时间不够用,心里又焦虑不能把每一件事做好,不能把每一个顾客照顾好的状态。

当然,经营了十多年的医疗诊所,是他经济来源的最大主力,他有稳定的生意量和顾客群;但在医美的领域里,有许多新奇的科技诱发他的浓厚兴趣与好学心。从很多个案中,他看到经他在医美疗程后,让顾客建立了自信与变得更加好了,那种成就感令他非常快乐。他常与大家分享:“医美,是医疗与艺术的结合体。每每完成医美疗程时,他仿佛感觉到犹如小时候完成一幅画后得到的那种快乐与满足”。

2015年,又是他人生的另一个转捩点。

他离开了昔加末,放下他经营了十多年的“叶医生药房”。

一个因缘具足下,他勇敢地踏出人生的另一步,期许给自己人生一份礼物:
“改变现有的生活,去做自己喜欢做的事”。

他到马六甲,一个他一直向往能够度过后半生的地方,拓展他的“零”市场—— Yap’s Clinic。

他说,他两袖清风地到来,就秉持着十五年前创业时单纯的那一念心,从“零”开始,一心做好,就对了!

在马六甲勇敢地设立一个平台,就从“零”,从“心”出发吧!

他常打趣地与顾客分享:这十五年来,他的医疗诊所常常都是顾客坐满在门诊部“恭候“他的“大驾光临”,成天的作息都手忙脚乱地为病患与奇难杂症作战。肩负着大众所谓的“妙手回春”“医术高明”“仁心仁术”……的使命;而十多年以后,在这“零”市场的新开业诊所里,诊所外不乏探视诊所内动静的好奇眼神,因为门可罗雀,所以每一个按下的门铃,都带给他满满的动力与惊喜!

他非常珍惜与感恩每一个走进来的人,因为大家是慕名而来,愿意给予他机会与信任,愿意与他合作共享他在医美的期望与改变的效果!日子久了,陌生的医美新客成了熟客,再从熟客变为知友,分外难得!

回流的顾客更是他信心的来源,让他分外珍惜大家对他的信任,珍惜这缘分与情谊。

叶医生也感动于顾客对于他的爱戴与关爱。有的时候,顾客会给与他带来手信,也与他分享美食。闲暇之余,他们也会与叶医生分享他们生活点滴。

Yap’s Clinic不是一家提供医美治疗的医美诊所,更予人一种“家”的温馨!

2016年,诊所顾客群量提升,也逐渐网开从南下的新加坡、澳洲、纽西兰;再到北上的吉隆坡、槟城、泰国、中国……这更促使他不敢懈怠,更要精进,也鼓舞他肩负一个对“医美”的使命!起初,他自费到许多国家,如韩国、泰国、日本、新加坡取经,后来他更受邀约到巴黎与巴塞罗那参加医美领域的研讨会,再后期更被提拔为培训讲演者。

2018年, 叶医生将诊所搬移至自置的一栋楼,希望提供给顾客更舒适与泊车便利的环境。长久以来,除了自我增值,他更希望能惠及顾客,与顾客一起共享更先进,更美好的医美疗效。

在这里,他要诚心感激所有的人,给予他很大的支持,动力,信任与鼓舞。

他的工作过程,确实让我们看到他对这份工作的热爱。

他说,每一个过程,遇到的每一个人,不仅丰富了他的学术经验,也丰富了他的生活。他也要感恩生活的种种考验,磨练出他今天的耐力与坚持。

他还笑说:他是幸福的,因为能够与大家同在。

他也非常愿意与大家共享他的学术与经验。

Yap’s Clinic的大门永远为您开着,欢迎您的到来!
