I have been seeing Dr Joyce Lim for the past few years( on and off) Was prescribed Retin A and her house brand Vitamin C Essence and moisturiser . At first, it worked. After some time, whiteheads keep appearing and my skin is still very oily. She recommends me to use Retin A Everyday. However, my skin has become quite red and pores enlarged. She advised me to go for Fraser laser for my large pores and wrinkles.

Anyone can recommend a dermatologist who is caring and effective?

Sorry typo error: she advised me to go for Fraxel laser which has downtime, but I fear that it might not suit my sensitive skin

Ah, the endless topic of good dermatologists and acne! There are numerous accounts of dermatologists being unable to treat acne with the usual over the counter remedies, and I'm not expecting a big miracle to happen soon the way they approach this matter. So as you can imagine my disappointment has led me to alternative ways and measures such as products from and their supplement powder that has helped me solve not only my skin issues but also improve my overall health condition thanks to their advanced formula.

First you need to find the cause. This can be a hormonal failure, bowel disease, chronic stress or hereditary factors. And then start a comprehensive treatment. My sister had intestinal problems, and it all showed on her face. She was taking sorbents, probiotics and vitamins from Canadian Pharmacy. And I saw the result on her face. The pimples disappeared ,and the skin cleared.

Has anyone ever tried laser treatments for acne scars? How were your results and how long was the downtime?
I did fractional laser with Dr Leo Kah Woon. My acne scars have definitely become less visible after two sessions. As for downtime, I think about a week (max) to fully recover, but this downtime is not really that interruptive of daily life. :)
