DOUX Visage may have opened its doors 17 years ago but the total body wellness centre is not resting on its laurels.
The business operating from two shoplots along Jalan Wan Kadir, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, is expanding with the introduction of Dr Goh Cosmeceutical, a skincare brand named after its founder Dr Jenny Goh.
The launch of the new brand was held in conjunction with Doux Visage’s 17th anniversary.
“After many months of preparation, we are excited to introduce Dr Goh’s Restorative Formula, a certified medical-grade skincare range that combines Chinese medicine plant extracts with Western medicinal active ingredients,” said Goh at the opening ceremony of the outlet.The 42-year-old, who is also a trained acupuncturist and beauty consultant, had always dreamt of introducing her own skincare products but never put much thought into it.

“There was so much work involved, from researching to coming up with a name for the brand,” she added while thanking her clients for their continuous support.
While managing Doux Visage, Goh concentrated on her studies and completed her first PhD in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, focusing on Phyto Hormone Treatment.
She then took her second PhD at the same university, this time focusing on Oriental Medicine.
Goh said many clients with complicated health conditions did not want to be on long-term medication or undergo surgery, so they opted for natural treatments offered by the wellness centre.
“In school, I wasn’t the brightest student, but I knew I wanted to do well in Chinese medicine, so that has always been my focus,” she said, adding that she hoped
Dr Goh Cosmeceutical would help address common skin problems such as hypersensitivity, inflammation as well as skin conditions associated with hormones and ageing.
Dr Goh Cosmeceutical Sdn Bhd business partner and marketing director Gin Tong said, “The road leading up to today has not been the easiest.
“Coming from a hospitality background, I had to start from ground zero.
“Dr Jenny encouraged me to take baby steps, guiding me in her own way, and I’m very grateful that she didn’t give up on me even when I was ready to give up on myself.
“I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for giving me the chance of a lifetime.”
The opening ceremony was graced by Puan Sri Thong Nyok Choo, Tunku Tan Sri Imran Tuanku Ja’afar as well as Goh’s loyal clients.
Thong and Imran also shared with the guests their experience while undergoing treatment at the wellness centre.
