Astique Clinic | 19 Jan 2015


Dr Celine Leong of ASTIQUE, THE AESTHETIC CLINIC is known for giving her patients personalised and detailed attention. This perhaps comes as no surprise as she is also a dedicated wife and doting mother who has always been able to find time for her family in spite of her busy schedule.

When it comes to aesthetic treatments, Dr Celine not only believes in providing the most effective procedures, she also believes that a patient’s safety and well-being are paramount. In line with these beliefs, she also emphasises the importance of getting the right information especially when it comes to treatments and procedures.

One of the most common misconceptions when it comes to aesthetic procedures is that they require a lengthy recovery or downtime.
