With Video now!
When I first arrived to Korea I had quite a few skin problems.
I suffered from acne, rosacea, and oily skin.
The first clinic I went to was the Teng Teng Skin Clinic.
The doctor spoke perfect English and I felt very comfortable in the clinic.
My skin made a lot of visual improvement but I began to worry that the deep root of the problem wasn’t being treated (even though on the outside I was looking MUCH better).
My mother ended up helping me find YEclinic.
My first consultation was really interesting and more in depth than any I had experienced.
First he looked at my skin, took samples, and squeezed a couple of pimples.
Later I found out they analyzed it to find out what kinds of viruses my skin had!
Next I held a metal rod while they rolled it’s attachment on my foot.
Apparently they were measuring how long the current took to get from one rod to the other.
This measured the “age” of your skin cells.
Mine weren’t doing so well…
After my consultation they presented their plan to help my skin!
Every other week I would receive laser treatment and in between each treatment I would get a facial.
I bought a set of 5 visits and paid ahead of time.
As a service (free gift) they gave me one visit for free.
So in the end I ended up purchasing 5 visits + 1 free visit.
For the first week he had me take some Chinese Medicine.
I can’t really tell you what it was for but it did have an effect.
Each appointment I would have my skin washed and cleaned by a clinic assistant.
After the doctor would come down and give me a squeezing.
Basically he looks at the progress your skin is making and also squeezes any problems you might be having at the time. Sounds gross I know but he pops it in the “correct” way so it won’t scar.
So did I make improvements?
I apologize for not having a pic of a true outbreak. My inflammation came and went and my before picture was during a calm time.
But you can see traces of my rosacea (that is much more apparent in my very first picture) and the acne I was still dealing with.
I made A LOT of improvement and continued to visit YE Skin Clinic until I left.
The clinic is very clean, professional, and I looked forward to each visit.
Some of the doctors speak great English and some only a small bit but they provide top service regardless of the language barrier!
BUT for your initial consultation I’d bring a friend who speaks Korean just in case ^.-
To get there get off at Seonjeongneung Station.
Take Exit 2.
When you get out take an immediate U-turn.
Take a right at the Corner.
It will be second building on your right.
