Dear Aspen, Thank you for your question. Dandruff is a fairly common condition but it can be quite stubborn and persistent at times.

Are there any options to permanently get rid of body hair besides IPL?

Dear Jennifer, I would put it as hair reduction instead of hair removal. The risk of scarring is too high in permanent hair removal, and it is not feasible. All the current treatments are long term hair reduction. Beside IPL which you mentioned, laser is well tested for hair reduction. There are var...

What are the long term effects of threadlifts over a 10 year period, and will skin elasticity and collagen be affected?

Dear Ms Cny,
Thank you for question. Our body stops producing collagen in our mid to late 20's. Then, around age 30, our collagen production begins a long, unyielding decline. After age 30, our collagen level drops 1%-2% every year. By age 40, we have lost 10%-20% of our collagen stores.

Is Isotretinoin a permanent fix for acne?

Isotretinoin is one of my favourite medications for the purpose of acne treatment. It's used primarily for cystic acne.

These days, everyone who walks into my clinic wants to erase away wrinkles, diminish pore size and achieve a lifted look — all without going under the knife.

They also don’t want shots of Botox or fillers that require regular upkeep — shots that involve just a cosmetic boost but do not help skin regenerate from within.

On top of all those requests, patients always ask to look and feel natural. 

With our patients becoming savvier and more discerning about treatment options available, we knew we had to look into a true multi-tasking skin rejuvenator.

About 99% of hair loss treatments in Singapore that you see advertised on local media do NOT work at all. You probably know exactly which adverts I'm talking about - they often feature a Mediacorp artiste. Just how much money is wasted on these ineffective treatments? A lot. Hair loss treatment is a whooping $3.5 billion industry.

I'm writing this post because "recommend me a good dermatologist in Singapore" is one of the questions I'm most often asked by friends -  Now I can just direct them to this post.

Incidentally, "dermatologist Singapore" is also one of the most Googled terms in Singapore, receiving over 3700 searches each month - so I figured I'd just help everyone else out by explaining in detail how to find a suitable dermatologist for your condition and treatment needs in Singapore.

We all love travelling, and I for one love beach holidays and hiking off the beaten track.

There are many things Singaporeans love to bring back from our travels, but a bad skin rash is certainly not one of them.

Bedbugs were all over the news headlines recently, with Scoot and Singapore Airlines passengers complaining of being bitten during their flights. Unfortunately, bed bug bites are just one of the skin conditions that I often see in returning travellers.

If you chanced on this post with the question "How to get rid of acne scars?", you're not alone. It's one of the most common skin problems that patients seek me out for. Dealing with acne in your youth is bad enough, but the scars it leaves behind can be a real nightmare.

Don't waste your time and money on treatments that don't work. Before coming to see me, it’s not uncommon for patients to try completely ineffective methods, from DIY home treatments to beauty spa facials and underpowered lasers.

Aesthetic procedures are very popular in Singapore, which is why lots of beauty salons have jumped on the bandwagon. If you’re considering some form of aesthetic treatment, I hope that you first take some time to find out which procedures actually work, and which don’t!

The second consideration is that an aesthetic procedure may be offered at such a low-powered setting that it's practically ineffective (or worse yet, make use of a harmful imitation product, as this Straits Times report on fake Thermage machines highlighted).

When there are a dozen different lasers available in Singapore with wide-ranging prices, it’s confusing even for myself as a doctor, let alone the average Singaporean.
