Dr. Patricia Yap realizes her passion for transforming skin and transforming lives through her dermatology practice and the products she creates that are specifically targeted to treat common skin conditions affecting the predominant black Jamaica population . Having suffered with severe acne in her teenage years, she has first-hand experience of how skin condition can negatively impact self-esteem and lead to depression. This life-changing experience inspired her to study dermatology and she has devoted her career to empowering people with the knowledge and products that is necessary to achieve healthy and beautiful skin.
Dr. Yap received her undergraduate degree with honors in Chemistry and her Medical Degree from the University of the West Indies, Jamaica. She completed her advanced studies in Dermatology with Distinction at the King’s College of London – St. John’s Institute of Dermatology.
While practicing as a dermatologist, she discovered that many products on the market were not effective in treating people of Afro-Caribbean descent. This led her to study to become a formulator.
Dr Yap hopes to patent the trove of medical inventions she has developed over the last 25 years in her private practice as soon as possible so she can share her expertise with other doctors and used them to treat their patients successfully.
