I have very bad acne scars, pit holes and pores as a result of a blotched job by a beautician in my late teens. Since then, I have tried various treatments like chemical peel, pixel skin resurfacing, Fraxel, CO2, RF etc but nothing seems to work for me for the past 10 years. I feel that I have exhausted all possible treatments and was wondering if plastic surgery can help me. This has been bugging me for years and has affected my social life as well. I can't wait to resolve this once and for all ConfusedCryFrown....Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks!

I had the same issue with pores, and I found that several treatments of CO2 laser helped me significantly. What I realised about the treatment though is that the results heavily depend on the plastic surgeon performing the procedure and that it may take several treatments before your pores are unnoticeable again... Did you try shopping around at different places? I suggest you do a lot of research about the p.surgeons and read their reviews :)

How about having an online consultation in Grand Plastic Surgery? A lot of celebrities go there because of their outstanding dermatologist. :)

Hi gals, thanks for the suggestions. Was expecting the personnel of Seoul Touch Up to advise but they never revert..

I agree with Denise that the results is dependant on the plastic surgeons performing the procedure and I am considering all my options again.. Actually wanted to have the procedure in Korea as I believe the doctors there have superior skills but I didnt hear from them and since it is difficult to shuttle between Singapore and Korea for the procedure due to work, I guess I have no choice but to seek alternative advise from local doctors again..

I know how you feel--scheduling around daily life is such a hassle :( But yes! A device is only as good as its doctor, but I'm sure there are doctors in SG that are up to par with the ones in Korea if you look hard enough (although the price in Korea would probably be slightly lower).

I realise that good questions to ask when finding an experienced doctor for any laser treatment include:

  1. Before/after pictures for the particular laser.
  2. How many treatments they have performed.
  3. How long they have been using the device.
  4. Why they chose to use a particular device in their office
  5. Which laser they advise for your particular skin concern.

These were just some questions that helped me find the most experienced doctor that I could trust with my face and for a good price. So I hope they help you too whether you decide to stay in Singapore or go to Korea! Good luck. :)
