I suffered from skin dryness a few months back which caused my skin to flake around my mouth and on my temples. The flaky skin had caused me much distress to the point where I did not want to go to work or meet my friends. I felt really insecure. I went to consult an aesthetic physi...

My first visit to Dr Chua was a very comfortable one. Generally, I felt that he showed genuine concern about my condition as he also probed for more details (such as acne history etc.). Thereafter, he explained to me the different options that were available to me (antibiotics, t...

The staff here is great. I feel welcome and ready to start improving. Past my 30s, I've felt that the skin around my chin and cheeks weren't as firm as before. Asking around, I discovered Dr Chua. Came for a consultation to see what I could do to solve my problems about a month ago....

Dr Chua is very skilled, professional and knowledgeable, and results could be seen within one treatment. Shannon and Michelle are also very friendly and engaging clinic assistants who deliver excellent patient care and follow up after each treatment to monitor progress. I’m grateful to the Veritas ...

I have acne prone skin and it left me with many scars that even make up can't cover. I see vast improvement after the 3rd session. The scars lightened significantly and most importantly I don't get much pimples anymore. Dr Chua is very patient. He knows my threshold for pain is low,...

Do $300 Spa Slimming Sessions Really Work? This Singaporean Doctor Explains
Do $300 Spa Slimming Sessions Really Work? This Singaporean Doctor Explains

Have you ever been to a spa for slimming consultation, only to be met with an annoyingly pushy salesperson who insists you use a dubious service? If so, you wouldn’t be the only one. More and more disgruntled customers have emerged to challenge the aggressive hard-sell approach that so many slimming beauty centres adopt.

These dodgy sales tactics are not just minor irritations. At times, they could lead you into potentially dangerous situations.

There have been no studies comparing both head to head. Because I use both, I'd share my experience about them. The Starwalker uses a long pulse Ndyag whereas other laser machines that do carbon peel usually uses a quasi-long pulse Ndyag. The long pulse Ndyag goes deeper and has...

It really depends on the scar shape and size, as well as the exact location of the scar. The most simple factor is size. Punch excisions cannot be performed for scars which are too wide because they would cause "dog ears" to form upon surgical closure. In those instances, an ...

Hey Ming Lim, For someone new in trying to do some anti aging, it can be a bit overwhelming. There are various non invasive and minimally invasive treatments that can help in all the layers of aging. These range from laser machines, ultrasound and other energy devices, as well as...

Hello fademyscars, Thank you for your pictures. The scars look like hypopigmented mature surgical scars. I would use an ablative laser to treat them, but you may not achieve complete scar clearance, and they come with certain risks. If the scars are not too large or obvious...
18 Nov 2018
It depends a lot on the facial/peel/carbon laser setting and operator usage, and your skin type. If your skin is sensitive currently, those are usually not the first line treatments I would recommend, since the hydrafacial uses some gentle peeling skincare, and a proper carbon...

Thank your for your questions. Your acne skincare regime sounds like a decent acne prevention skincare for any average person, but it's important to understand that a good acne skincare regime depends on your individual skin type and acne severity. It is impossible to give you ...

Those marks sound like post inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks. They can fade with time, but the process can be hastened with the use of some medical skincare as well as certain pigmentation lasers. The Qswitched lasers would be a good option usually. Consult your dermatologi...

Hello Faceneedshelp, Thank you for your pictures. You seem to have a mix of box and ice-pick scars. I'd use mainly combination lasers for that, including some ablative lasers. This still depends on personal assessment and your skin type. Additionally, some deeper scars will be...

Resurfacing lasers are good for tightening pores. The ablative options include the fractional CO2 and Erbium:Yag, the non-ablative options include the Thulium, Erbium:Glass and the long pulsed ND:Yag lasers. Which combination and frequency to treat them depend on your individual ...

You could dissolve the fillers if they are reversible. This can be done with hyaluronidase for many types of fillers. If not grossly disproportional, you may also consider using some radiofrequency devices to tighten the skin or "diffuse" the fillers. I would recommend the ...

Thanks for sharing your pictures. Your pores appear enlarged and visible from underlying congestion. This can clog up and enlarge the surface opening. Proper skincare can cause the pores to shrink. BHAs can penetrate pores and unclog them. Medical skincare like retinoids can a...

Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes can be referred to as crow’s feet and the best solution for controlling them is Botox injections every 3 to 4 months. I would not use voluma as it is too thick of a solution and will not look natural. For under-eye wrinkles, I would r...

First, you must wait at least two weeks before removing your tattoo. Tattoos damage your skin and you need time to heal. The good news is that black ink is the easiest to remove, particularly with the highly effective PicoWay laser. The less-good news is that tattoo-removal is a ...

I would consider a consult with a doctor to properly diagnose your condition. Your pictures are unclear but I do see some comedonal acne. That is a mild form of acne that is easily treated with just some skin topicals. Get it properly diagnosed to be sure. If it is not tha...

You look like you are suffering from mild to moderate papulo-nodular acne. I do not see any acne cysts so far. I would likely recommend a mix of lifestyle changes, skincare/topical creams and possibly medicines to improve your acne. Lasers can also help resolve acne and I comm...

I fully agree with Dr David's advice to take a break from laser treatments for the time being. I also agree with his approach of emphasizing on the diagnosis and holistic approach to skin treatments. IPL is a valuable light treatment and the LASEMD and Dual Yellow are both won...

Surgical removal with electrocautery or ablative lasers like the CO2 or Erbium-Yag are all excellent options. The scarring risk of such procedures is higher in Asian skin and hence it is my preference to remove them over a few sessions (depending of course on the number of actual ...

It appears to be an hypopigmented scar. This can happen after inflammation from skin procedures such as lasers. The problem is particularly more obvious in Asian/darker skin types because of poorer healing and also simply because the white patch stands out. Some anti-inflammat...

Dr Shane's advice is on the dot. Some topical creams will help and pigment lasers like the Q-switched nanosecond or picosecond lasers can speed up its clearance. For treatment costs, I would advise you to submit a treatment quote here to here from the various Singapore doctors: https://www.doct...

An aggressive session of CO2 laser can indeed result in a few weeks of post inflammatory erythema. I have not seen your "before" pictures and will not be able to comment on the cause of your red spots. I would advise you to go back to the doctor who treated you to discuss the curr...

There are various types of hair loss that will require different treatment approaches. You should consult a dermatologist, plastic surgeon or aesthetic doctor with special interest in hair to help you with your concern.

I would add on topical sunblock as a last step after your moisturiser. This is important as UV can worsen the darkening and collagen loss from your injured skin. Use a good sunblock after you have adequately moisturized the area, and top up the sunscreen every few hours in the ...

If I hear you correctly, you have red marks left from previous acne. These are not obvious on your picture indeed, but they are a very common sequela of acne vulgaris. The name of that condition is post inflammatory erythema (PIE for short) and it is usually accompanied ...

From your photos, I do not see significant cheek sagging or even significant cheek fat. I would discuss carefully with your trusted doctor before proceeding with any procedure rashly. I would like to remind you that mesofat injections are disallowed in Singapore currently,...

It is indeed distressing to face hair loss at a young age. I would not rush into PRP injections as the first option since: 1. It is not legally available in Singapore 2. There is only scant evidence of its efficacy for hair loss 3. So far the scant evidence only shows resu...

thanks for your pictures. There is no evidence that pimples are caused by 'toxins' in the body. However stress and hormonal imbalances are a major cause, which increases the activity of the oil glands. You seem to be suffering from papular acne, which can be treated with topica...
14 Feb 2018
From your pictures, you appear to be suffering from mainly box scars. 1. I would use a mix of subcision with collagen stimulators, combined with laser treatments for your condition. Fractional resurfacing lasers are the ones you want to go for. 2. I agree with Dr Siew that ...
6 Feb 2018
You appear to be suffering from milia. Exfoliating scrubs help to prevent them from happening, but do little to treat the existing lesions. CO2 lasers or electrocautery can remove the existing lesions effectively. These are usually done in a single session and my centre charges 2...
26 Jan 2018
It seems from your pictures that you have some rolling and box scars. Both Fractional CO2 and Infini will help. Fractional CO2 will be a more effective option, but there can be prolonged downtime and it may also be higher risk for your skin type. The Infini will be much safer f...
