This Medical Director Shares Tips On Laser Skin Resurfacing Aftercare Management
This Medical Director Shares Tips On Laser Skin Resurfacing Aftercare Management

Laser skin resurfacing is the gold standard when it comes to treating skin irregularities. In recent years, laser skin resurfacing treatments have seen a surge in popularity in various countries, including Singapore, thanks to advancements in laser technology which has made it more effective and safe at the same time. [1] However, as effective as it is, there tends to be some confusion or lack of knowledge among the public when it comes to aftercare management. Aftercare is just as important as the actual procedure as it ensures optimal results from the treatment and reduces potential side-effects from this incredible rejuvenating procedure.

Dr Chin Yee Choong is the medical director of Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. On DoctorxDentist, he provided some valuable insight involving key issues, complications and important aspects regarding aftercare management for skin laser resurfacing. Here's what he has to say.

Scar tissue can be hard to eradicate and clear off, especially in people with persistent acne problems.

Dr Chin Yee Choong is the medical director of Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. He responded to a couple of DoctorxDentist reader questions about the differences between the many fillers available in Singapore, and whether or not they are effective solutions for scars. Here is his advice.

Is Glowing Skin Possible With Treatment? A Medical Doctor Discusses
Is Glowing Skin Possible With Treatment? A Medical Doctor Discusses

Many people might want to get the glowing complexion sported by celebrities, but may often be unaware of the most appropriate way to achieve clear skin. While there might be many factors that contribute to skin health and reduced pore size, we need to understand the root cause of skin problems first rather than going for one treatment or another unthinkingly. After that, an appropriate treatment can be chosen based on your needs and lifestyle.

Dr Chin Yee Choong is the medical director of Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. He gave some advice to DoctorxDentist readers about treatments for improving skin appearance. Here's what he had to share about medical aesthetic treatments available in Singapore.

Stimulating Eyelash Growth: A Doctor Discusses Various Methods
Stimulating Eyelash Growth: A Doctor Discusses Various Methods

The eyes can be a core point of focus when we look at a person’s face. From an aesthetic perspective, eyelash growth may not seem to be a core facial structure, but it may contribute to physical appearance. Eyelashes are not only under the domain of beauty salons, but also an area of aesthetic medical treatment.

Did you know that we have the same number of eyelash follicles from the time we are born and all throughout our lives? Eyelashes also grow slower than scalp hair, and their growth cycle normally lasts 5-11 months. [1]

There are researched methods for stimulating eyelash growth that Singapore patients can learn more about. Dr Chin Yee Choong is the medical director of Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. He recently answered DoctorxDentist readers’ eyelash growth questions and explained what they could expect from the procedures. Here are several things he shared.

Hi, From the photo, you appear to have mild acne scars rather than open pores. Fractional CO2 laser should work. Effectiveness may be enhanced with more aggressive treatment parameters albeit at the expense of perhaps more unwanted side-effects such as PIH. Alternatives to consider are Fractio...

Hi, Treatment failure with oral antibiotics for inflammatory acne is considered to have occurred if there is no improvement in acne after 3 months of compliant therapy. Hope this helps!
25 Jun 2019
Hi, Topical medications are the mainstay in the treatment of mild to moderate acne. Such agents work to control acne in different ways which have been well discussed in the acne forum that you may wish to refer to. Either a past history of response/non-reaponse, tolerability or a therapeutic tr...

Hi, Benzoyl peroxide acts by killing the bacteria causing inflammatory acne. Indirectly, by controlling acne inflammation well, PIE may be reduced. Benzoyl peroxide has no direct effect in reducing PIE. Occasionally, due to the mild skin irritation experienced by some patients from benzoyl per...

Hi, Intralesional steroid injection is the mainstay of keloid treatment. The injectable steroid comes in different strengths. Facial keloids generally respond better than non-facial keloids to treatment. As such, lower strength steroids are used to inject them and to reduce potential side effec...

Hi, All Health Sciences Authority (HSA) - approved generics should work well and are generally non-inferior to the originals. Stick to propecia if it has worked well for you and you are willing to accept the premium price over generic finasteride. Propecia gives patients the a...

Hi, Actually, acne treatment is primarily based on severity and previous response to medication and does not differ between the various age group especially in males. Pre-existing medical conditions in an adult e.g. liver disease, high cholesterol may preclude the use of some medication. In fem...

Hi, From the photo, you appear to have large whiteheads (macrocomedones). Macrocomedones are generally difficult to treat and clear. Treatment options include topical retinoids, chemical peeling, light electrocautery, low dose isotretinoin over 12-18 months. Avoid greasy make...

Hi, You have deep ice-pick scars. These deep scars are best dealt with in 2 stages. The first stage involves converting the deep scars to shallower scars. Scar excision and TCA cross are methods to achieve this. The second stage involves blurring the scar outline and liftin...

Hi, Realistically, 25-50% improvement will be achievable with combination acne scar therapy (these include subcision, scar revision, fractional CO2 lasering, fractional microneedle RF and fractional picosecond lasering) for moderately severe acne. Generally, after treatment, s...
19 Jun 2019
Hi, The severity grading of acne is generally based on the number of inflammatory lesions as well as the nature/size of the inflamed lesions. Moderate acne is generally defined as having about 10-20 small inflamed lesions. Severe acne is generally defined as having multiple...
18 Jun 2019
Hi, Most likely, you have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation arising from your underlying medical condition. It is most important that your underlying medical condition be well controlled to reduce the formation of more pigmentation. Lightening creams and pigment laser may offer mild to modes...
15 Jun 2019
Hi, You may have eczema and/or macular amyloidosis. A sun-sensitive rash and contact dermatitis are also possibilities that need to be excluded. You will probably need to see your doctor for a full assessment before appropriate treatment may be prescribed. Treatm...
10 Jun 2019
Hi, Generally, most of the current acne scar treatments using energy-based devices such as fractional CO2 laser, fractional picosecond lasers, fractional microneedle RF requires 4-6 treatments to achieve optimal results. If your acne scars are milder, you will likely see sign...

Hi, It is likely that you have Raynaud’s phenomenon. In this condition, your blood vessels of the fingers are very sensitive to cold temperatures and take on a bluish colour. It may be associated with pain. While it may be harmless, it may also be caused by an underlying...

Hi, The gold standard for port-wine stain treatment is the 585-595nm pulsed dye laser which targets the superficial blood vessels and helps clear the port-wine stain with minimal risk of scarring. Early treatment gives the best results. Unfortunately, this special laser is not commonly availabl...
4 Jun 2019
Hi, Indeed what you have appears to be rather severe keratosis pilaris. They are really not scars but pronounced thickening of the skin around the openings of the hair follicles. The condition is chronic and no known cure is currently available. Some improvement may be seen af...

27 May 2019
Hi, Some moles do grow slowly in size with time. Look out for rapid growth, irregular borders, irregular colour and irregular shape which may raise concerns that the mole may be sinister. Ulceration and bleeding are also symptoms of concern. A mole screening by your doctor/dermatologist will he...
28 May 2019
Hi, The symmetrical appearance of the rash and its well-demarcated borders suggests eczema instead of a fungal infection. An allergic contact dermatitis component either due to footwear or topical medicaments needs to be considered. A patch test may be needed to confirm this. ...
26 May 2019
Hi, As the fat cells are destroyed by cryolipolysis (e.g coolsculpting), some overlying skin laxity/wrinkling may become apparent. Usually as the skin changes itself over time to adjust to the reduced underlying fat cells, the skin laxity/wrinkling will improve and disappear. ...
16 May 2019
Hi, From your photos, you appear to have rather inflamed eczema that may be infected. It is not likely that OTC (over-the-counter) creams will work. You will probably require prescription medication (antibiotics, topical steroids) by your doctor to control the skin inflammation and secondary in...

Hi, Personally, I would not use Rejuran Healer for treatment of oily skin and open pores, as there are cheaper and more effective options that target such skin problems. For your skin condition, it will be useful to consider combination treatment with fractional lasering...

Hi, From the photos, your skin appears dry, irritated and inflamed. You may have eczema or superficial skin inflammation. The cause may be due to internal sensitivity (e.g. atopic dermatitis) or due to external factors. An external factor causing eczema is called contact ...

Hi, As it takes 6 months for the fingernail to grow from base to tip and 12 months for the toenail to do likewise, it will take 6 months for loceryl to work for fingernails and 12 months for toenails. Early clinical improvement (the base of the affected nail will begin t...

Hi, The appearance of discrete red bumps over the front of your elbow is a little peculiar. It does not suggest eczema or skin sensitivity which commonly affects this area but presents as red scaly patches instead. The possible causes of your rash include insect bite reaction,...

Hi, A wide centre hair parting is generally an indication of diffuse hair thinning. The common causes are common balding (androgenetic alopecia), telogen effluvium (hair loss due to more hairs being pushed into the sleeping phase of the hair growth cycle; caused by recent illness...
1 May 2019
Hi, The jaw muscle (Masseter) is divided into two distinct parts, the superficial and deep. Occasionally, due to various reasons, the injection may be placed too superficially and fails to diffuse to the deeper portion of the Masseter muscle. During chewing or jaw clenching, this...
29 Apr 2019
Hi, from the photo, you may have inflammation of the small capillaries within the upper layers of the skin. The condition is called Capillaritis or Schamberg’s disease. The inflammation allows red blood cells to leak through gaps in the capillary walls causing pai...
29 Apr 2019
Hi, There is still significant redness suggesting that your acne may still be in the active phase. Active acne may be treated with either topicals or oral medication (discussed elsewhere in this forum) that your doctor will be able to guide you. Upon successful control of acne...
30 Apr 2019
Hi, From the photo, you may have closed comedones (whiteheads). A close physical examination by your doctor will be needed to distinguish the two. If you indeed have whiteheads, treatment options include topical retinoids (e.g. tretinoin, adapalene), chemical peeling and low d...
26 Apr 2019
Hi, The white bumps are likely milia (“oil” seeds) forming just beneath the skin. This may have occurred due to surface injury caused by the tattooing process. A close physical examination by your doctor is needed to confirm the diagnosis. After confirming the diagnosis, the milia may be remov...
25 Apr 2019
Hi, Likely you have a papular scar left over by the pimple. Sometimes it may take a long while before it flattens somewhat. If it remains after 12 months, it is likely to be permanent. Papular scars on the nose can be difficult to treat. Treatment options include leveling...
22 Apr 2019
Hi, Such scars are notoriously difficult to erase. Fractional carbon dioxide laser may help improve the skin texture somewhat but the scars are likely to be still quite visible even after several treatment sessions. Patients often ask me if surgical skin grafting is possible but ...
22 Apr 2019
Hi there, The most likely cause is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The prior red spots suggest some form of skin inflammation. When skin inflammation occurs, the skin's pigment forming cells (melanocytes) produce excessive pigment (melanin). This excess pigment "drops" to...
