Hi gals,

I also have my IPL and microdermabrasion done by Dr Chan too...I may need to go for another session of IPL and considering to do the microderabrasion every 1 to 2 mths....

noscon,

Dr Chan clinic is called point medical aesthetics,uniot number is #11-04/05 at paragon.
His email is [email protected] and his URL is www.drcalvinchan.com

For acne pits,I think u have to try laser instead of IPL...Do give Dr Chan a call and check with him...U need to call him directly on his cell phone to get an appt with him...

ok then when do you need IPL? I have a little freckles but mainly I want to smooth out my acne pits left by acne many years ago. So make my face more flawless... heehee

What is microdermabrasion? Is it like peeling?

yeah i just made an appt with Dr Chan and cancelled the appt I have with Dr loh since there many Dr chan's customers here and because of the discount $$$ that sporebrides forumers have

IPL can remove the freckles as for the acne pits,I think u may need to go for laser.

Microderabrasion is not like peeling,but it can smoothen ur skin...

When are u seeing Dr Chan?

hi all, any advice on which doctors should i go for my acne problem and the scars it caused? i need it to show visible results in the shortest amount of time possible with no side effects, like prolly <5 treatments. thanks!

lol i know it sounds very crazy, the "visible results in the shortest amount of time with no side effects" thing, but i really am at a loss on how should i achieve the hollywood celebrities kind of skin. =(

p.s well, pls bear in mind i'm only a student and don't have THAT much to spend, sadly. lol.

Hi Polkadotted,

I just attended an aesthetic talk last december, the aesthetic doctor, recommend us to treat our acne before further treatments. She even show us her patient's before &amp; after picture. very convincing..

For the others, please take note:
If you have an acne prone skin, please do not anyhow sign-up or go for facials. Cos, it will stimulate oil growth to your skin..guess what? more acne for you.. Best thing visit a medical doctor to treat your acne..its not expensive any way..Quoted from Dr Komathy.

This is just to share my experience with u gals.
I did 4 sessions of IPL at Dr. Valentin Low's clinic.
He gave me supplement to keep the face less oily as well.
This supplement can be taken only when you feel ur face is oily.

After the IPL treatment, my face become dry.
So I drank more water and also applied lots of lotion and moisturiser to keep the skin moisturised.

I could see the result after the 1st session.
My face become very radiant and open pores on my nose and cheeks were visibly minimised.
My skin used to be very oily and always had pimple
outbreaks which ended up having scars on my face.
Now, the scars are less obvious.
And the best thing is that I do not have to touch-up my make up in the afternoon!
And I can even go out without putting foundation.
Now, I only put loose powder.

I stopped IPL treatment for 1.5 months now.
The skin tone is still even and smooth.
But the pores on my nose and cheeks are back to my original condition.

So I'm thinking of doing Carbon Laser Peel to close up the pores.

Anyway, in my opinion, IPL is constly cos the treatment is not permanent and u r paying such a big buks on just a small improvement!

But we all ladies always wan to be beautiful......so no choice la.....

450buks each session
yes, the scars became less obvoius
i had a very bad scar on my right cheek
and it became smaller
i guess it takes few more sessions
to make it disappear
but the scar (this one was smaller then the one on the right cheek)
on my forehead disappear completely

Honestly I do not trust beauticians to do IPL treatments. My mum went to one and the beaautician ended up burning her face. Such treatments are better left to the hands of skin doctors who have more experience and the proper training. For myself, I go to Wen and Weng Medical for treatments and they do a pretty good job!

Hi,

Hi Ko Ko, yeah i think better to go to a doctor that quite a few of the forumers have gone to than salon. If you're on a tight budget, you can check out Dr Calvin Chan at Wheelock Place (www.drcalvinchan.com). He gives free consultation to forumers and charges a special rate of $250 per session of I2PL (2nd generation IPL same as National Skin Centre) face and neck. No need to take packages.

Hi, after all the hoo haa on the news recently on beauty treatments, aren't you all a bit wary?
i personally won't risk it ever now since I can have my own rejuvenation with my Galvanic spa. cheap, effective and most importantly safe! You all shld try and compare. there's nothing to lose as it has free trial session.

IPL? Need gel to be apply on ur face? I tried the LHE @Opera Beauty cottage near Khabit MRT (10 mins walk to blk 632). It is the next generation after IPL without gel......more effective. 1st Trail 50% off ...after discount $100+. Need to try. *-*
 

dyj3003

>>jol: yes, need to apply a layer of cold gel on face first when you do IPL.
dun think LHE is the next generation of IPL, more like I2PL. In fact, the two use different machines and their function differ. From what I understand, LHE helps to kill bacteria esply effective if you have acne problem. On the other hand, IPL is more for hair removal, skin rejunv and lightening of pigmentation. If I remember correctly, IPL is not be that suitable for acne problem skin type..

Theresa Beauty was trying to sell me a LHE hair removal - underarm package yesterday. Say it's promotion offer at $1800/- for 6 sessions. Original price is $2800/-. Very much expensive than the $70/- kcpc mentioned. Luckily, I did not sign for that package. Phew!

Any good recommendations for LHE underarm hair removal?
