Dra. Kyla already understood the unpleasant impact of physical flaws on the human psyche at an early age. Growing up, she experienced firsthand the heavy emotional burden brought about by different skin issues such as acne, pigmentation and scarring, among others. This fueled her drive to seek the best ways to improve people’s self-concept through physical enhancement.
Having undergone medical aesthetic procedures herself while in medical school, she realized that improving one’s outward appearance could be life-changing. Thus, she became determined to make a difference in the lives of people who are going through similar difficulties.
She obtained the degree of Doctor of Medicine from the University of the Philippines – Philippine General Hospital in 2008 and was licensed the same year. It came as no surprise when she subsequently decided to pursue Dermatology. She completed the Diploma in Clinical Dermatology programme of Cardiff University, United Kingdom in 2010 and was awarded the degree of Master of Science in Clinical Dermatology by the same institution in 2011. Thereafter, she took the Fellowship in Dermatologic Laser Surgery at Ramathibodi Hospital – Mahidol University, Thailand to further advance her training. She regularly attends reputable international dermatologic conventions to constantly update herself on the latest medical techniques and technologies in the field.
It is her lifelong commitment to uplift her patients’ psychosocial well-being by providing the most effective solutions to physical concerns which are undeniably intertwined with the sense of self-worth.
