His talent, keen eye and enthusiasm for his work became recognised in Sydney cosmetic medical circles and he became the principal medical provider at a number of well-regarded clinics in Sydney. In 2009, Dr Hooi was awarded as a Foundation Fellow of the Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine. The current clinic in Telopea has been operating since late 2015.

He regularly presents workshops on the latest advances in PRP therapy, and has been an invited speaker at a number of domestic (LCMC, Cosmetex, A5M, Cosmetic Summit, Cosmedicon) and international (Biobridge Venice and Biobridge Sydney) conferences on cosmetic medicine.
Dr Hooi keeps abreast of current developments in Cosmetic Medicine and has special interests in cosmetic injectables, bio-stimulator treatments, non-surgical skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. With his long experience in the use of point of care ultrasound in emergency medicine, he has brought his experience over to cosmetic medicine and the use of ultrasound to improve injection safety and complication management.
