The first time I went here for my consultation, Dr Shane explained it clearly what is my skin condition and what would be the treatment for it. I didn't even hesitate to get the treatment and it's my 3rd session already and just for two months. I am very happy with the results. I...

Can Diet and DIY Food Face Masks Help Improve Your Skin Complexion? An Aesthetic Doctor Weighs In
Can Diet and DIY Food Face Masks Help Improve Your Skin Complexion? An Aesthetic Doctor Weighs In

We all have that one friend or family member who insists that eating oily food can cause acne or that fruits can help you get clearer skin. Are these just myths or have they been medically proven?

This was on the mind of Stacey, a DxD reader. She recently watched a video of a dermatologist making a claim that food in general, (except dairy products) does not cause acne, e.g. eating pizza wouldn’t cause acne but smearing it all over your face would. 

She wanted to find out if there's any correlation between her diet and complexion. She was also curious about the legitimacy of DIY face masks made from fruits. 

Dr Shane Abucewicz Tan shared his professional opinion with Stacey. Here's what he had to say.

Good morning, The picture you've uploaded looks ulcerated and not typical of an acne lesion. I would recommend having a physical examination to rule out other possible cutaneous issues. Cheers, Dr Shane Tan

From the picture, it does seem like you do have some moderate eyebag herniation which i'm assuming has been there since your younger days? Typically a more complete form of management of your congenital eyebags would be surgical, but I do note a slight loss of volume along your c...

You do indeed have a nice face as is. The only thing I would recommend is a touch of filler to your chin on the left to reduce the asymmetry there. This might create a slightly wider chin profile but will improve the harmony of the face. A frontal photograph, however, is ...

The bumps on your face are little benign keratotic growths of the skin. These become more numerous with age and sun exposure, and can be very easily removed with an ablative laser. A single session removes them completely, but other growths can still form over the course of your l...

Glad to hear you are looking to control that acne early; uncontrolled acne typically leaves scars and the management of acne scars is a bit more complicated, so early prevention is key. Your skin is very much alive, so daily maintenance topical therapy will be necessary. To in...
