Dr Grace Ling – or Dr Grace, as she is known affectionately by her patients – graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1993 with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree. She has worked in various hospital disciplines including internal medicine, surgery, orthopaedics, ENT and Accident and Emergency, and invested herself in medical community work in Touch Community Services from 1995-1996, pioneering a home-medical service to the poor elderly in Singapore.
After serving the community directly, Dr Grace joined the private sector in 1998 as a general practitioner and garnered many experiences through a variety of corporate medical practices. In this period, Dr Grace’s passion to contribute and give back to others did not waver, and she became devoted to providing medical aesthetics and wellness to her patients. She has actively incorporated both medical aesthetics and wellness early on in her work as a general practitioner, treating patients with various skin conditions like acne, melasma, and pigmentation.
Dr Grace is a strong believer in empowering both ladies and men to achieve the appearance they desire through non-invasive aesthetic treatments and techniques. She believes that everyone deserves to look their best and is happy to be able to help anyone regardless of what stage they may be in their life journey.
Being meticulous and attentive to details, Dr Grace characterizes her work with safe, non-invasive, clinically-proven treatments. This ensures that her patient’s welfare is always prioritized, and she is always willing to adjust her practice according to the needs of her patients. It is no wonder that many of her patients have eventually become her friends.
Passionate about her work in medical aesthetics, she obtained a Graduate Diploma in Family Practice Dermatology in 2003 to better herself in a work and service which she thoroughly enjoys. Dr Grace also has certificates of competence in botox, dermal fillers, IPL, laser and chemical peels
Despite her focus on acne treatment, acne scar treatment, pigmentation treatment, skincare formulations and aesthetic concepts, Dr Grace also has experience in chemical peels, Botox, fillers, IPL and laser, and uses all these tools as part of a holistic approach to aesthetic treatments. With additional experience in facial contouring, slimming and body contouring, this means that you can be sure of approaching her regardless of your skin issues.
Having spent many years of her youth looking for the “perfect potion” in the hope of achieving flawless skin for herself, Dr Grace has also co-founded an award-winning skincare line.
Out of work, Dr Grace enjoys spending time with her husband and her 2 fun and energetic sons. She also enjoys travelling, reading, swimming and shopping! A strong advocate of work-life balance, Dr Grace believes in sowing time, energy and resources into our future generation for a common brighter future.
Dr Lim graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1993 with a Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery degree. Subsequently, she achieved her Graduate Diploma (FP) Dermatology from the National University of Singapore in 2003.
Having worked in various hospital departments in her early years including Surgery, Orthopaedics, Emergency, Internal medicine and Paediatric Emergency, her rich experiences have cultivated her strong passion for family practice and medical aesthetics today. Dr Lim derives strength and purpose from practicing medical aesthetics because of the sense of fulfillment she gets when she sees her patients’ appearance and confidence improve two fold. She believes in helping patients feel lovely about themselves once again, and cares for them with this firmly in mind.
In the course of her work, Dr Lim has encountered many ladies and men who were battling skin problems like acne, scarring, pigmentation and aging skin. Through her personal experiences, Dr Lim witnessed how these problems affected their self-confidence, and how it was common for those around her to use thick make-up to camouflage their flaws. Seeing more severe cases, such as the shattered confidence of older women who were divorced and wished to look younger and fresher, Dr Lim was driven to help them, and saw the value and benefit of medical aesthetics.
Having suffered from teenage acne herself and eventually bearing acne scars, she is especially invested in acne and acne-scars treatments and greatly empathizes with her patients. Because of this, Dr Lim is a dedicated and passionate doctor who prioritizes her patients’ well-being and opinions, and is always willing to lend a listening ear to them. She believes in harnessing non-invasive and safe procedures to rejuvenate her patients.
Dr Lim is also trained to handle pigmentation, non-surgical rejuvenation of the face, and weight management. Additionally, Dr Lim has further certificates of competence in Botox, Fillers, IPL, Laser and chemical peels.
Dr Lim and Dr Grace are also the founders of an award-winning skincare line. This award-winning skincare line was the successful result of Dr Lim’s pursuit for light-textured skincare that would be effective despite Singapore’s humid climate and help control oil, refine her enlarged pores, promote skin smoothness and prevent formation of clogged pores.
Dr Lim is happily married with a teenage son and a lively younger son. She enjoys spending time with her family, shopping, art and travelling.
