    gee, thx so much dear twinkle for the info...

    too bad we shared the same fate going to that clinic, i guess by learning from other people's mistakes and trials, we could also go and save the world...! hahah

    will go and pay the dr tan a visit...thx a mill!

    i've been reading abt Derma RX thingy. Is it more expensive than Kin Mun? Think i should go and visit that place. Can someone kindly provide me more details on this clinic (Derma RX)?? Price, Location, People (recommendations???), results...?

    if i not wrong, dr tan charges $80 for the 1st time and subsequently $25 with each visit. he is friendly and patient in listening to what you have to ask...there are 2 branches of the clinic now:

    1) derma-rx clinic- located at forum at 11th floor.
    2) derma-rx center- located at china square central, above banquet food court, opp hong lim complex in chinatown. the clinic at the 2nd floor..

    you might like to check out the thread on derma-rx center/ products for more details

    yes, you can only purchase in a set..i first got the starter kit that comes in trial sizes and when i used it, my skin became redder, but the dr wee told me that its supposed to be like that when i went back to see him..even bought a set of regular sized items..after using for a few more days..i find that my skin cannot take the strong glycolic acid/ renewal cream that i gave up..i still remember having to apply so many steps..think its up to 6 steps? it makes me cringe now why did i apply so many stuff on my face previously so willingly without seeing what my skin actually needs is some gentle TLC..

    I went to see this Dr Wee like 2 years back because his clinic is very near my house, really regretted it because not only is he unfriendly, his assistants are just as bad.

    and you have to purchase everything in a set, doesn't matter if they suit you or not. and eventhough it is a clinic, they can only issue you an official receipt up to $40 only, WTH???? so fishy.

    and mentos, you are right, he prescribed the same things to all his patients. I am surprised, eventhough the whole deal sucks, his clinic is always packed.

    hi,
    i have been to the clinic about 2 years back and i think the doctor's attitude is terrible..am sorry to say it out here but i regretted going there. i much prefer dr tan @ derma-rx clinic. dr wee is not friendly at all and seemed impatient to answer my questions! with regards to the products, i am surprised that he prescribed nearly the same items for all patients who go and see him.
    i am only using the sunblock from that clinic. the rest of the items ie facial wash, cream makes my skin super sensitive and my condition actually worsened after using those products

    hi every1

    im a newbie....

    anyway, i've been to the KinMun Clinic since 2003. I would have to admit he's prescriptions have been good to my acne prone face. I've been using his product ever since. Followed the lengthy procedures religiously in the morning and nite. 6 bottles in all. Amounts to $250+

    I personnally like the facial wash (by the way, that bottle can last for 3mths - very concentrated). Suppose to massage untill it dissolve in the face and untill dirt came piling out in between ur finger...ewww! But the problem lies in the aftermath...SCARS.... He advised me to buy the Vitamin C serum ( dunnoe how much) to clear the scars. Don't know why i didnt get it.

    Yup, its funny how the exact same prescriptions can suit to all kinds of acne faces...(hmm, lets ponder...)

    Results: Smoother skin and fresher look...BUT....now my face has got used to the products so much that acne starts popping out again ony it is lesser than the first time. Guess i have to go back and re-visit the Dr Victor again and tolerate his naggings...

    hope this helps!

    i don't have any acne problems now.... just the irritating sight of those pitted scars i have from my sec sch day till now orz.

    yeah the dr prescribe the same set to everyone but it works tho i would say.

    i wonder if he does any cooltouch stuffs.

    btw jim regarding ur laser treatment how much was it and how many sessions

    IPL and ur cooltouch how much ? is it really a must to do both ? what does IPL achieve ?

    yup...the clinic is called kim mun. the doc's name is Dr Victor Wee.

    i've been there for abt 5 mths...am going down soon to replenish the products from him. I haf to say his products did really help to stop my acne from breaking out. Now i have really alot less acne erupting. Now left the red scars & depressed scars to clear away.

    I do see my red scars getting lighter...but it's not dramatic...jus slightly. I think his products really make my face red...& then it starts to peel...which i think will improve the redness.

    i think he prescribes the same products to everybody who go to c him. funny? i thought everybody's skin is different?

    actually the main thing i wanna improve on right now are my red scars. I've been to another doc at balestier to do IPL & cooltouch which i had hoped will improve my scars. But i'm kinda disappointed with the redness is abt the same...only the holes seems to become shallower.

    anybody have any recommendations to remove red scars fast? make it lighter & disappear? i heard using baking soda to wash the face...follow by using apple cide vinegar as toner will help to fade red scars fast? anybody tried this b4?

    started a topic Kim Mun clinic at Toa Payoh

    Kim Mun clinic at Toa Payoh

    just wondering does anyone here visit this (not sure the spelling) Kin Mun Clinic blk 66 Toa Payoh L.o.r 4 #01-319 SG 310066 ?

    been like using their products (set package) for coming to 6 months and it's nice to know it deals with acne and uneven skin tone quite effectively but not the acne scars

    i was told that only upon using like 1-2 years :Doh: of the package then i can see some of the fading.

    i did ask him about any other means of removing scars and he mentioned about using needle to lift up the scars -_- and 1 scar or rather 1 hole is like $300 (could be wrong not sure).

    I intend to ask him about if he does any cooltouch or whatever thing he can offer, if not i guess i will try to settle for the cheapest which is recommended by the nice gals in this forum.

    So... any fellow patients of this clinic ? especially those who have been using it for like 1yr+ ? does the doc (no idea the name lol) ever recommend other products beside the standard (facial wash + toner + skin renewal gel + aha gel + spf 65 cream) ? thanks
Working...
