Overview

Dr. Joanna Chan graduated from the National University of Singapore and went on to complete
Residency training, obtaining her Masters in Family Medicine and Diploma in Practical Dermatology.

She has also completed a Diploma course with the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM)
and is accredited by the Singapore Medical Council Aesthetic Practice Oversight Committee to
perform aesthetic procedures. Apart from aesthetic medicine, she has clinical experience in various
specialties including Dermatology, Surgery and Primary Care.

Dr. Joanna Chan regards the skin as the most fascinating yet misunderstood organ of the human body— besides being our largest organ, it has many complex functions, and can affect our health, confidence and general well-being! It also requires proper care to glow and look its best. It is with this in mind that she chose aesthetic medicine to guide her patients in an individualized, holistic journey towards healthier and more youthful-looking skin. She believes in practicing sound, evidence-based aesthetic medicine and keeps abreast of the latest technology and advancements in the field of aesthetics and anti-aging solutions by attending both local and international conferences.

When not at the clinic, you may find Dr. Joanna at one of the community hospices, where she
provides inpatient palliative care once a week. Or perhaps she may be at the dance studio, her happy place outside of work, practising her lines and pointed toes.

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 ...

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...

Hi there, The answer is yes, there are alternatives to Accutane for oily skin. Systemic isotretinoin (Accutane, Oratane) is very effective for reducing seborrhoea (oily skin). Research has shows that 1 year after the completion of isotretinoin therapy, sebum excretion rates...

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...
22 Jan 2019
Hi, Thank you for your question. It is a broad one, and perhaps we could discuss a tailored treatment plan for you based on your history and doing a physical examination, or a picture of your nails. Your doctor may do some tests such as examination of a specimen of your nail under m...

The short answer is that there is insufficient evidence at the moment either to promote or to discourage the use of facial cleansing devices as their evidence in improving acne is mixed. Proponents of facial cleansing devices theorize that the use of ultrasonic skincare brushe...

Yes, there are so many different fillers on the market and I understand it could be confusing understanding them and deciding which, if any at all, is best for you. Dermal fillers are a gel-like soft tissue filler injected into the skin. It can help with many things, including fa...

I do face many patients like yourself with similar questions regarding how to use topical medication creams they are given. Firstly, I believe it is important to obtain these creams from a doctor who is familiar with using them. Your doctor and/or clinic should be able to identif...

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...

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 corpo...

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 improvement score a...

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. ...

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 "squee...

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...

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 (&...
