What are your views on the current Singapore healthcare ecosystem?

Hi Raymond, This question is kinda cheem, but I’ll have a stab at it (from my limited perspectives). There are two challenges that stand out, as you’ve described: 1. There needs to be spare capacity to cope with the growing AND aging population. Innovation certainly has a role to play, but the fruit...

Is it possible to have laser treatment while using topical Differin? How does Differin compare to other topical retinoids?

Hi Melissa, Differin is actually also a type of retinoid which was formulated to have lesser side effects than Tretinoin. In terms of acne control (which I assume is what you are using it for as you mentioned oral accutane), both should be effective – I’m not aware of any head-to-head studies compar...

Is there any way to flatten a raised white coloured scar?

Hi Constance, it is difficult for me to assess the scar based on a picture alone, without any examination.
