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.

Further to my previous post about treating acne scars, a number of people emailed directly to ask about fractional laser clinic recommendations and costs.

You can read this other post for a complete list of effective aesthetic treatment and costs in Singapore. This other post contains a complete table of available laser treatments and costs in Singapore.

If you do a quick search on the internet, you will quickly realise that treatment and costs aren't very transparent. To address these questions, I emailed a standardised template to a few clinics, just to illustrate how treatment plans and prices in the industry can differ greatly.

Acne scar treatment in Singapore as told by a doctor with no affiliations. On this occasion, I also had the pleasure of picking the brains of my dermatologist colleague, Dr Yew.

Why am I writing this post? Primarily because I'm that clichéd long-time acne sufferer myself, with a vested interest in this kind of stuff.
