Does anyone know of any good dermatologists in the Gangnam area for acne treatment on ones face. English speaking or not, not a concern of mine. I need something done as they keep re-appearing and won't stay gone for too long. Thank you very much.

I went to dermatologists for a long time and nothing they did or gave me resulted in the complete absence of new acne. The only thing that has cured me is the paleolithic diet, which I've been doing for about seven years now. When I go off it, my skin gets worse. If I stick to it strictly for thirty days the new skin is completely clear.

Hi have found Dr. Julius Jon at Teng Teng Skin Clinic to be great. He's not the cheapest doctor, but he speaks English perfectly, is professional, and is very good at his job. I didn't go to him for acne problems, but I do know that he can help with that. I've been going to him for about 4 years, and am very happy with the results.

I go to Teng Teng too and I agree with everything she says. Expensive as hell, but gets the job done. If I could find a cheaper doctor though I would drop him in a heartbeat.

My sister took this drug that is off the market now, it's called accutane or rocutane. something like that.

There is a generic form. It's suppose to make your pores smaller and kill all the bacteria. The derm will start you off on antibiotics, but it doesn't work. Accutane, you have to be on it for 6 months or something and you get a ton of blood work done. It's suppose to be the last resort, big guns type of drug. A lot of side effects. Watch youtube videos on it.

ask for this stuff called Zineryt. i don't know if it's available in Korea but it works like absolute magic for most people. it's a topical antibiotic liquid that you put on your skin.

i never used to have very bad skin, but it was just incredibly stubborn. my doc here in South Africa put me on about 5 different treatments (oral antibiotics, various creams, etc.) before giving up and giving me a course of Roaccutane. the Roaccutane cleared my skin up for a mere 6 months before it came back again.

after it came back i decided to change doctors and went to a dermatologist who prescribed me the Zineryt. within 1 month my skin was almost perfectly clear.

my girlfriend has also recently started using it and her skin is now almost perfectly clear as well.

I want to note that I also took the harsh drug accutane when I was a teenager and dealt with the side effects. It improved my face a bit but the acne slowly came back over a year. There is really nothing comparable to the paleolithic diet for treating acne. If you read medical journals, search for the studies comparing traditional living ache hunter gatherers vs those on industrialized diets in the cities.

I recommend Wooskin located near Sookmyung womens university station near Seoul station. I've been to TengTeng and Wooskin is cheaper!

I'll second this. He's not cheap by any means but he'll take you in immediately and gets the job done. I've been going there for a few years so he gives me some "discounts" occasionally for my loyalty so I'll recommend him in return Very Happy
