    Where do you live or study/work, and what are you going to consult a dermatologist for? I know several, but I have to know these infos first to know who is the best dermatologist to recommend.
  • MaicoMaico Member PExer
    Dr. Mariano Ortiz. He's the head of the Department of Dermatology of St. Lukes Medical Center. He's really good, however, his consultation fee is relatively expensive. Mga 350-500 bucks.

    well! cousin ko si Nimia and i think she'll be stayin sa US na. i think si Dra. Lonabel Encarnacion yung head ng St. Luke's coz nakita ko sa billboard doon sa St. Luke's! Well, magaling si Dra. Lon tapos masaya pa na doctor! talkative! di aa makakatulog! heheheee! mag-classmate silang dalawa ni Nimia and same room yung clinic nilang dalawa pero different yung style nila sa Acne surgery. dati kay Nimia ako coz cousin ko siya then pumunta siyang states kaya lumipat ako kay Dra. Lon

    Hi and Hello to all my Kababayans!

    I would like to introduce myself. I am a certified dermatologist in the Philippines and a fellow of the Philippine Dermatological Society. I would like to offer my expertise on all your questions, inquiries, etc. on all skin and dermatologic problems. I have noted that the members of this forum are very fortunate to have member doctors to help them with all their medical problems. To Dr. Ira et al, congratulations and job well done! If you will allow me, I would also like to help out in the dermatology side.

    With all the fake dermatologists in our country, its hard to know if what they're telling you is right. Well, now you will know. Just send me a message through Pinoy Exhange.

    Thanks and God Bless!

    Hi Apple,

    Yes you can use glutathione to help lighten your skin. Kailangan mo rin mag sunblock araw-araw para di mag darken ang skin mo sa face. Merong ding mga products na pwede tayong ipahid para mag improve ang scars mo. Yun nga lang, sa mga certified dermatologists mo lamang ito makukuha. If you're interested, you can send me a private message for details.:)

    Hi Ninja kid,

    First of all, thank you for welcoming me to the forum. I shall try to do my best.

    Anyway, acne scars are really difficult to treat. If what you have are really like "ice picks", the best would be dermal fillers, which is then followed by microdermabrasion. Dermal fillers are substances that we inject under the skin to fill in the gaps and lift the depressions. Once the depressions are lifted, the microdermabrasion will be more effective in smoothening it out.

    I actually do these procedures at my clinic, and so if you want, just send me a private message.

    I hope this helps. :)

    Hello Skin Doc. This message is not for you, it's for those Pexers whose posts I've removed from this thread:

    Often, when a spammer gets a warning for spamming, what he/she'll do is create several alternicks.

    Fortunately, with moderator access, we moderators can actually tell when several alternicks simply belong to one person.

    We don't tolerate spam. We don't tolerate TextSpeak either.

    hi doc gusto ko lang i-consult ang problem ng friend ko. May paraan pa ba na matanggal ang mga peklats sa legs kahit na ito ay matagal na as in mula sa pagkabata pa? Paki explain nga kung ano glutathione at ano ang effect nito?
