Welcome to the official website of Dr Terry Loong (often known as Dr Terry by her patients).

Dr Terry is a qualified doctor for more than 18 years, having graduated from King’s College London in 2002. She first trained as a surgeon before specialising in Aesthetic Medicine in 2007. She started out her career, inspired by her late mother who suffered from hormonal acne and acne scars which led to her first book “The Hormonal Acne Solution”.

When Dr Terry was 30 years old, she was diagnosed with early stage cervical cancer which led her down the path of nutrition, lifestyle medicine and hormonal balance. Her philosophy as an Integrative Aesthetic and Hormone Doctor is to help her patients look and feel their best, with each passing year, naturally and holistically.

I have been treated by Dr Terry since 2010 she is an excellent Doctor who takes a real interest in her patients and any concerns that they have. Dr Terry is incredibly skilled at making you look as natural as possible , people know that you look good and an improved version of yourself – but they have no idea why. I like to see it as maintenance ! Over the years I have recommended Dr Terry to various friends of mine who like me have had excellent results. Dr Terry has the combination of being both technically skilled with what I call in the design world ” a good eye ” I cannot recommend her highly enough and I would not go anywhere else.

Dr Terry is an outstanding skin doctor. I have been a patient of hers for over 10 years and her perfectionism and accuracy of every treatment I’ve been given has been excellent, with each result being extremely natural and with hardly any downtime. This shows the first class skill and knowledge she has about all aesthetic and non aesthetic procedures.
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Terry to anyone who wishes to look after their skin and maintain a youthful natural look regardless of their age.

I have also been following a recommended skin plan from Dr Terry and I can wholeheartedly say the products I’ve been using have made a remarkable difference to my skin.

If you’re tight for time, busy with the kids or watching your wallet, one way to get the best return on your investment and time on your skincare products is ensuring your products are medical grade so it has higher concentration of active ingredients, making it more effective with each application. You also don’t need a lot of products - you just need products that are multi-purpose and work synergistically to achieve your skin goals

One of my superpowers is helping women plan their skin care routine. After a 30 minute virtual consultation, my team @getharley delivers their products to their door. My patients love the service because they receive timely reminders for when products are due to finish so they can easily replenish it at a click of a button with minimal stress and time

If you need extra support with your skin care planning, why not schedule a skin consultation where we will go through your skin goals and needs. You can find more information via the link in my bio

I see many new faces here so I thought I introduce myself & share some fun facts about me

I’m an Integrative Aesthetic & Hormone Doctor based in London & I help women feel more confident with their skin & in control of how they age. The reason my work is to create a better world for my son through the women I meet. I believe when women prioritise self care & their health, it will create a positive ripple effect with their family, community & the world

I do this through education on my platforms and 1-2-1 consultations. My current services include skin care planning, hormonal balance support (investigations, food/lifestyle/supplement protocols +/- prescriptions) & aesthetic treatments if necessary. It is my goal to create online programs & group coaching to help more women

Some random fun facts about me:-
👩🏻‍⚕️Terry is my first name and catchier to say than my surname “Loong” which means dragon 🐉 in Chinese
💥My Chinese name (Phui Foong) means Phoenix and it’s my superpower being able to rise up after many life’s challenges
🚌 When I was 7 years old, I missed the bus on my 2nd day at school so I decided to walk home. It took me almost 5 hours to get home 🏡 (my parents were worried sick as you can imagine but it’s one of my life adventure)
🩰In an “Under the Sea” ballet performance in secondary school, I had a solo dance as a seahorse
🎹 I actually went up to Performance Diploma playing the piano and my mum bought me a grand piano to celebrate but I stopped playing after she passed away 3 weeks of me starting medical school
🇲🇾 I’m from Malaysia but lived in UK for about 20 years now (hence the mixed Malaysian, American and British accent)
👩🏻‍💻I met my husband through online dating and it turns out I knew his mother 2 years before and she wanted to match make us but she never found the opportunity (so I believe in fate and serendipity)
🏝We lived in Bali for 1.5 years when my son turned 1 and I trained to be a @poppilatesofficial instructor

Thank you for being here. I would love to get to know you too. Let me know a fun random fact about you 😊 #aestheticdoctor #hormonedoctor #womenshormones #skindoctor #skinhormones #hormonalacne #perimenopause #workingmumlife

Are you suffering from acne breakouts, extra unwanted hair on your face (but thinning on the top head) or struggling with your weight? It could be due to insulin resistance

Say what? Insulin is a hormone that is made and released by the pancreas (a gland behind your stomach). When you eat food, your body breaks it down to glucose (or sugar) in the gut and then it enters into your bloodstream. Insulin is the gate keeper that allows glucose to enter cells to use as energy or fuel. Insulin helps to regulate how the body uses glucose and balance blood glucose levels. When there’s too much glucose in your bloodstream (eg after eating a half of a pack of chocolate cookies), insulin signals your body to store the excess in the liver to be used in the future when your blood glucose levels are low (eg when you’re stressed, in between meals or when you need an extra boost of energy)

Insulin Resistance is when no one is responding even when insulin is banging at the door to let glucose in. This results in glucose levels staying high while you feel tired (muscles are not getting fuel) and you start craving food because you feel hungry all the time (glucose is not being stored in the liver)

So what happens when there’s too much sugar in your blood?
~ it leads to cellular glycation which basically means sugar crystals in your cells, damaging it resulting in increased wrinkles
~ it converts testosterone to DHT (5x more potent) which increases oily skin, breakouts and hair thinning
~ it gets stored in the fat cells instead so you put on weight
~ increase inflammation
~ increase risk of diabetes, PCOS, heart disease, high cholesterol, fatty liver and kidney disease

There could be a genetic predisposition or it could be caused by lifestyle choices. I will be diving into this topic with Navneeta from @lets_eat_better_together who will be sharing her personal wellness journey healing from insulin resistance through food and an anti-inflammatory lifestyle. Hope you will join us Live this Sunday and let me know if you have any questions on the topic we can answer #healthylifestyle #lowtoxliving #healingpcos #pcos #insulinresistance #hormonalacne #hormonalacnesolution

Do you hide stress well? Or does your skin give it away even when you feel you’re handling stress pretty well

Did you know that stress can have a direct and an indirect effect on the skin, triggering or worsening acne breakouts, rosacea, psoriasis, sensitivity, dermatitis (itchiness), skin allergies, dark circles under the eyes and even wrinkles

Stress affects the skin directly via the hormone cortisol, increasing inflammation, slowing down healing, altering immunity, increasing collagen breakdown and reducing blood flow. Stress affects skin indirectly by affecting our sleep, breathing, eating and drinking habits, picking our skin and any unhealthy stress coping mechanism

Stress is part of life and part of living. We may not be able to control many things but we sure can control a lot of things too that will have a direct effect on our skin. April is Stress Awareness Month and I hope to share practical tips with you throughout this month to better handle stress and reduce the effects it has on your skin

Tell me, how much does stress show up on your skin? #skinhormones #hormonesskin #hormonalacne #adultacne #stressawarenessmonth #stressawareness #sensitiveskinsolution #skintips

I’m thinking of having healthy treats to hand out to my son’s classmates for his birthday later this month but I don’t bake. Maybe a healthy cupcake🧁, cookie or protein ball (hmmm....would typical kids at 5 know how to eat a protein ball?) Any healthy bakers out there or you would recommend? It would be great if you were in London so you don’t have to post the healthy treats too far 😂.

I know others are depending on you and you don’t feel you can prioritise yourself at the moment. But whatever life is throwing at you, make time to unplug and take care of yourself. Whether that’s doing a yoga flow, eating in peace or even hiding in the bathroom to cry on the floor

Whatever it is, make time to release so you can reset. Do it for the people depending on you. Do it for your future self. I’m cheering you on x #selflove #selfcare #selfcaretips #womenwellness #wellbeingjourney #holisticcoach #integrativemedicine #workingmumlife #stayathomemum

“Answer the call that needs you the most” - a powerful takeaway message from this morning’s coaching call with fellow Brave Creators with our coach @kia_abrera

When the to-do-list seem to stack up and you’re torn between working on your creative project, your job, being a care giver or just taking care of yourself, it can feel overwhelming to the point of paralysis and then guilt 😓. I love this message Kia shared - “Answer the call that needs you the most”. If your body needs you the most right now and you need to rest, give yourself grace to rest and recharge. Everything else can wait and not worth your health. You can’t give from an empty cup

I’ve been forgiving myself the last few days for not being able to wake up early to work on my dreams as I normally would because I was JUST SO D*** TIRED!! I feel a lot better now and currently working on my presentation for my monthly group coaching call for my Grow Younger Club members. Funny how April’s topic is on “Boosting Brain Health to Grow Younger”

I hope you’re starting the week with confidence, if you’re not....ask yourself “What needs you the most right now?” And go do it! Cheering you on x #mondaymotivationalquote #mondayinspiration #womenwellness #selfempowerment #personaldevelopmentgoals
