Hi Timmy,

You mentioned that you bought a product fm Taiwan recently called Sony CPL. Do you know if it is available in Singapore? How much did you pay for it? Did you see Results after 1 use & how long did the Results last?

Thanks. :)

Hi fishdiamond,

How effective is Cellnique's Pro Sebum in minimising pores? Do you see any difference after 1 application? or how long did it take to see any difference? How long do the results last?

Does it cause any side effects such as breakout, etc?

Thanks.

where ur sis did her miconeedle theraphy?

is it really good? wanna to give it a try too.. do advise.. tks..


my sister did it at Laserlipolisis & Aesthetics Clinic in JB. She really had a much smoother face and less visible pores after her first treatment. She recently did her 2nd treatment, and she is absolutely happy about the results. I think microneedle theraphy was also recently showcased on Channel U, one of their beauty shows.... but, my sister say JB is so much cheaper and the doctor is a certified aesthetic doctor, so no worries.

I am AMPHASIZING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN..

Do let other treatments like LHE or SPL to make ur skin better not juz skin deep but rather in depth....

Do a check online to verify wat i had said.... I had attended seminar about how to maintain skin effectively..... This is wat i gathered and is really willing to help others with problems to shine with confident,,..

yah that makes sense or else the clinic won't be making money if it really fix the prob

what's LHE and SPL?

I've tried Retin A and Differin...it work for a while...the peeling never stops and i still get breakout...then i tried Roaccutane (the oral "retin A")...the result is like a magic wand...but Roac is not for everyone...the duration of intake depends on age and body weight, which many doctors fail to mention to patients...it can be damaging to your liver if taken for too long....your blood test will be taken before you are allowed to take Roac...individual experience varying side effect...some have none while some have really bad side effect....it works great for me...i'm flawless now bcos of Roac...and of course i use deepall mask to keep my skin supple...cos Roac can be very dehydrating during intial use...

good luck!
where can i get retin A cream and gel or roaccutane and blood test exact location to get it and test blood thanks greatly appreciated

Hey, im a user of this product, it certainly helps in reducing blackheads but i dont think it does any help for pore minimising. im trying to find a good way too!

I think microneedling treatment is no longer allowed in Singapore or did they allow again now?

anyway i hv tried a few times before n didnt really work for me n im pretty disappointed cos i paid more than S$2000 for a package of 5 or so n it is done properly by an aesthetic doctor here.

Fm my experiences n what i observe, if the skin has alot of blemishes or like acne scars or uneven texture, it helps. But if you skin is like has some slight blemishes eg. pimple marks, a bit wrinkles, freckles, pigmentation, etc but no uneven texture or bad acne marks so basically an average skin, it doesnt really help or rather you wud find that the improvement is so little or barely noticeable that you wud complain or be dissatisfied. I was so upset n disappointed as to why the doctor recommended the microneedling treatments to me.

So take note when you wanna do microneedling - only if your skin has alot of blemishes or acne scars or uneven texture - then i believe you may be satisfied with the results, otherwise dont try it n dont waste your $.

I did diamond dermabrasion and IPL treatment together, the result is very good for a person like me always has out break at my chin and cheek area. I am on my 3rd treatment of both, all my headache and acne are gone and my pore sizes reduce alot so made my skin look so much radiant, I am satified with the results.

I went to Allure 20 for both treatments, their services is excellent and price is very reasonable.

Though I still feel that the treatments are a bit steep ... $128 per session.... but I guess it is still much cheaper than my Bioskin facial since it includes ampoules, eye and neck treatments.


Hey...do you mind to share with me where you had do it??btw,did she try to squeezed them out and hurting them more deeply??cos i know extractions in the wrong way can really harm your skin...


I really need a good clean out of all my clogged pores and those that look like a white head but not quite? I think I have milia seeds too. Some parts of my skin also looks like there is stuff underneath it and i can feel like the lump under the pore but there is no head on it to remove it.

so 40 mins of just extracting everthing out? was it painful? where is this location pls and who was the therapist working on your face?

thanks!

Hi riko

For face treatment are they using the same machine of hair removal? I have acne problem and open pore on my cheek area too, so both treatment together can help? You mentioned in other thread the cost is $1500 so is how many sessions? What do you mean did 2 treatments together? Is it on same day? Sorry for so many question. Thanks

there're NO products or home remedies to reduce pore size. any such items can only give the appearance of reduced pores.

you need to go to a dermatologist for treatments to TRY reduce the pore size (i said TRY because there's no guarantee they will ALL be reduced).

billions have been spent on non-medical methods/products, and billions have found themselves tricked!

Hi there! I tried something last month in a drugstore and I was fascinated, it made my pores vanish instantly, I think it was Clinique though not sure, it was called pore refiner and it’s kind of like makeup, except all foamy and kind of like mousse, and you apply it and it just makes your skin go instantly perfect, it’s amazing. I’m pretty sure it was Clinique. Try and ask a cosmetician for it.

Hey Doctor Taxico, it looks like another one has been tricked. See Hannah's reply. Guess she didn't know you were a real doctor.......
