Hi there, I would recommend skinboosters for the lips with the product Volite (from the Juvederm range from Allergan) for patients with dry, dehydrated, flaking/cracking lips either naturally or acquired e.g. from working in long hours of dry air/cold environment, but yet do not...

Hi there! Thank you for your question. I think it is safe to say that you may allow your doctor to help you weigh the risks of antibiotic resistance when using topical antibiotics for acne treatment. I personally do not recommend the use of topical antibiotics on their own f...
15 Apr 2019
Hello there! Thank you for your question and interest in this topic. Syringomas may be removed in a variety of methods but in general I believe you are referring to minimally-invasive skin procedures using equipment or machines such as lasers/minor surgical procedures. Y...

Hi there, There is good evidence for long-term hair removal/reduction using laser of suitable wavelengths, such as the long-pulse 1064nm NDYag laser, which is commonly used in clinics in Singapore. Evidence has been found for long-term hair removal efficacy beyond 6 months after ...

Hi there, Acne in newborns, or neonatal/infantile acne, as it is commonly called, is not considered to be rare. The acne morphology in this condition may include comedones (whiteheads and blackheads), inflamed papules and pustules, nodules, and cysts. The cause of infantile ac...

Hi there! The short answer is, NO, I strongly do not advise you to undergo laser skin resurfacing after being exposed to sunlight for the past few days. In fact, depending on factors such as duration and intensity of recent sunlight/UV exposure, skin type and skin condition, ...
18 Mar 2019
Hi there, That's an interesting question. I do not think there is strong evidence to recommend a particular diet or dietary guideline after laser resurfacing for acne scars, whether to speed up the healing process or prevent side effects. To me, taking proper care of the skin...
18 Mar 2019
Hi there, Erythema (redness) and swelling are possible and early warning signs of a skin infection, given your recent ear piercing. Other signs and symptoms of a skin or soft tissue infection may include warmth, pain, especially pain on pressure/touching and presence of any disc...

Hi there! It is good that you have read about Rejuran and Ellanse. However, my short answer is that neither were created for the purpose of improving dark eye circles, and saggy skin/wrinkles under the eyes. I agree with Dr. Pang's opinion on use of energy-based devices such ...
15 Feb 2019
Hi there! Thank you for your question regarding treatment options for tattoo removal. I recommend using a pico-second laser to target tattoo ink/pigments. Picosecond lasers are more effective and safer than nanosecond (Q-switched) lasers (1). However, do note that the type o...

Hi, Thank you for your question and pictures. From the photos and in the absence of any history provided, these tiny bumps appear to look like closed comedones (commonly known as "whiteheads"). Some could also be milia, and less likely, syringoma. A doctor will need to ask you...

The pigment used in eyebrow embroidery usually fades with time, but I understand that yours did not. In this case, you could try using a laser to remove the pigments. In my practice, I use a Pico-second laser to remove such pigments. Pico-second lasers are the newest lasers pr...

Thank you for your question and providing a photograph. In my opinion, you have a nice face shape that many Asian girls would love! However, in my practice, many girls, like yourself, would want options to achieve an even slimmer/sharper “V face”. This will be depend...

It is good to hear you have had some response to the treatments you have received so far. Most scientific studies on TCA cross recommend treatment at 2-weekly intervals for 4-8 sittings, with follow up at the 3rd and 6th month. I would suggest you return to your doctor who...
13 Dec 2018
Thank you for your question and pictures posted. I suggest you return to your doctor who has been treating you as he would probably know your history and evolution of this rash best as he has been following up on your condition. This is because simple, uncomplicated tinea corpori...

You are right in that ablative lasers usually have better results per treatment session. An Asian study by South Korean doctors did a comparison of lasers for acne scar treatments and found that the non-ablative (i.e fractional laser) treatment groups had a slightly lower improvemen...

This appears to be a hypertrophic scar. Steroid injections have been shown to cause hypertrophic scars and keloids to regress, mainly by decreasing collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and reducing the inflammatory process in the wound by decreasing fibroblast proliferation. ...
13 Jun 2018
From the picture alone, these multiple little pearly-white bumps just under the surface of your skin appear to be milia. They are cysts containing keratin (a type of skin protein), and most commonly arise on the face. Unlike pimples, blackheads or whiteheads, they cannot be "squeeze...
12 Jun 2018
From the photograph provided, you appear to have both comedonal (whiteheads, blackheads) and inflammatory acne associated with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), as you have rightly pointed out. I generally start by explaining to my patients the 4 major features of acn...
8 Jun 2018
It appears that you have a brown to grey-brown patch starting from the side of the ear, which extends in a reticular (lacy) pattern over the cheek. This could be melasma, pending further history and a thorough examination of your skin. There also appear to be some solar lentigo (&...
