went to consult the dermatologist


I found a pretty wall shrubbery~ (*⌒∇⌒*)v

That's not the main point of this blog post though LOL. Today I'll just be blogging about my visit to Ting Skin Specialist yesterday and on the way I found a cool-looking building with wall shrubs so gotta take selfie hahahaha. No makeup well, because going to the dermatologist. But then again, I seldom put on makeup :/

Anyway, it's been 2 years since I last went to Dr Ting for my skin consultation. You can read about my review of this place from my blog post back in 2013 here.

I arrived at there at 10 ish, which I deemed quite late since I was planning to get there by at least an hour earlier for fear of having to wait. On all my previous visits I had to wait up to 3 hours! Thankfully, and surprisingly the queue wasn't long _most probably because everyone's still in the Raya mood and so I was out of the clinic in less than 20 minutes. Yesshh!!

Short wait but still got time to selfie wth

Oh, in case you're wondering, I already edited out my pimples and scars before posting.

So the purpose of my visit this time is because I wanted to check with the derma if I'll be legible to get the laser surgery done in my next consultation. Yeap, finally, like after yearsss of procrastinating. Been wanting to get it done way back in my uni days but for various reasons, including sheer laziness and for the sake of saving up I put it off until recently.

Before I could do so, I needed to make sure to get rid of some pimples on both sides of my chin. Thankfully these days my skin is wayyy more under control than the last time when I was plagued with crazy yucky, puss and blood-filled pimples so I'm guessing with just the antibiotics, I could get the zits under control in just the next few weeks. Though of course, whether or not I could do the laser then will still be decided in the next consultation.

Sharing with you on my skin's condition from the time I first visited Ting Skin Specialist ↓

From the scribbles and drawings you can gauge how awful my skin's condition was back in 2011 eh? After just 2 visits, I pretty much got the pimples under control and only got back for another consultations in 2013 and again, yesterday.

The consultation was pretty quick this time round since I'm not having much of a breakout and even opted not to get the injections. Yeap, you can opt for injections for fast results but bare in mind, they are going to hurt like crazy! (T▽T)

And when I say injection-S, get ready to be poked on your face like a hundred times. Alright, I'm simply scaring you LOL.

Just maybe, at least 30 times. Or 40 *evil grin*

Here are my prescriptions from the derma: a month's worth of cleanser, toner, pimple cream and of antibiotics.

This time I wasn't prescribed the usual pill 'cuz I complained the last one kept giving me bad headaches. Apparently they work just as good but just with slower result. Since I don't have really bad breakout and I'm not gonna have to go through the horrendous side effects from the other kind of oral medication, I'm not complaining LOL

So yeah, pretty much all for now. I'll be back for a follow up consultation in 4 or 6 weeks' time so I'll be updating again if I do get my laser done then. If you're interested to find out, follow me on my blog or Facebook page, I'll be giving you a heads up!



5/9/2015 Been quite occupied of late so I haven't gone for my follow up with Dr Ting yet. I'm trying to get my other stuff done here so most probably the laser thingy will be scheduled the end of this month or early October.


  1. hi do you know how much does the laser treatment cost? looking forward for your reply (

  2. Hello! I asked during my recent visit and it'll be around RM500-ish (before tax I think!). BTW, you'll need to clear off the active acnes first so that'll cost you several consultations depending on how bad your acnes are. Hope this helps!
