With the surge of cosmetic clinics sprouting in every corner of the metro, we ladies are bombarded with too many options on how we can change and alter our face and body. Extreme measures as others would describe cosmetic surgery, most women (and an increasing number of men) are still tempted to go for it as it presents countless possibilities to achieve perfection. However, there are still some of us who would just like to enhance how we already look and try to optimize our features without going under the knife. And that's where my dermatologist comes in. 

Dr. Dave Co of Dermhealth Clinic has been the only person I trust my skin to. Aside from having great skin, he never charges too much  (Diamond peel rate starts at 3 digits only!) and never pushes products just to increase the total bill. He's quite the only "minimalist" dermatologist I know. Some friends of mine used to tell me the dermatologists they've tried sell them skincare treatments that really works but the moment they stop using it, their skin condition just worsens. In this economy we're facing right now, it's a relief to know there are skin doctors who can take care of us, and most importantly, sincerely care for the needs (only necessary ones) of our skin. Dermhealth clinic offers the following services and treatments:
