5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

NO More Scars- with Filler Injections. Brisbane, AU

Now that I have confidence in Dr Lim, I got my acne scars treated. I did not want the time off with laser, and being Asian I was afraid of possible side effects such as darkening of the skin. I know with new stuff the chances are less, but I just could not take time off work. Dr Lim came up with a solution- filler. He used Juvederm to treat my scars - and it worked. The pain was minimal and...

Consultation-only: Consultation Was Horrible! (25 Yo with Moderate Acne) - Brisbane, AU

I went to see Davin Lim to finally do something about my facial acne. It had been affecting my life for a decade, and had started to affect my career. Dr Lim was cold and unapproachable - the whole experience was actually demoralising. He asked next to no questions about my health status and previous medical history, and gave me one-word responses and seemed to want to get me out of there as...

Acne Scarring Treatment - Combination Scars = Combination Treatment - Brisbane, AU

I've had acne scars on my forehead for quite some time and have always wanted to have them treated. I have a combination of scarring - it's not totally deep, but certainly noticeable. To make matters worse, I suffer from melasma, meaning I couldn't immediately undergo laser treatment. Over a series of appointments, Dr Lim firstly treated my melasma all the while still doing what he could to...

23 Year Old Male, Botox for Auxiliary Hyperhydrosis Secondary to Anxiety. Brisbane, AU

I have had excessive underarm sweating for around 7 years. I have have seen 6 different GPs for treatment options and been on numerous medications without success. I found Davin with a simple internet search and when I had my first appointment found he had much more to offer than I thought. As he was passionate about what he does he talked to me and uncovered my sweating was related to anxiety...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Tear Troughs Treatment and Facial Volume Loss Using Juvederm. Queensland, AU

I suffered from chronic sinusitis and for many years I have been sleep deprived (which I had surgically fixed a deviated septum last September). My face showed so much volume loss and severely on my tear troughs. The deep crevasse on both sides as I call it made me looked so haggard and aged, worsened by my droopy eyelids from the volume loss on my forehead. I never realised it but I used to...

Botox and Fillers - Brisbane, AU

Dr Lim is the best. He has done botox and fillers for me and has fixed other injectors muck ups. He won't make you get fillers you don't need just to make money. He gives an honest opinion and has a great eye for what he can do to enhance your beauty but in a natural way. He also did an amazing eye lift using fillers which has really opened up my hooded eyes.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Subtle, Natural Results. Brisbane, AU

I was looking for a procedure that looks natural and healthy and would give my confidence a boost. I'm in my late 50s with good skin but wanted to restore the volume in my cheeks and get rid of the tired look around my eyes. I wasn't sure which procedure would be best for me so appreciated the opportunity to discuss my individual needs with Dr Lim and really like the results.

I'm 41 yrs of age and I went to see Dr Lim regarding my crepey under eye skin. I had in mind a blepharoplasty however, after a consult with Dr Lim he advised I'd get better results, at a fraction of the cost of surgery, with CO2 laser. I was pleasantly surprised when I meet Dr Lim. He was very approachable and made me feel at ease. I found him to be honest and ethical. He truely has his...

40 Year Old Male, Acne Scar Treatments Success with Synergy Approach - Brisbane, AU

This will be a long review, but this doctor is worth it: For many years, I have been highly motivated to find a solution to my acne scars, which I have had since my late teens. Those with acne scars know how it can greatly affect our confidence and self esteem, and sometimes there is that feeling of hopelessness with what seems to be a permanent issue. I have previously tried a series of...

What Is the Best Age to Get BOTOX?

This has to be one of the most asked questions I get at dinner parties. ‘Hey Davin, do you think I need Botox yet?’ In most cases, the answer is NO. That said, you would be shocked to hear that I Botox at least half a dozen teenagers per week. However, it's not so the reason you're thinking, but for a condition know as hyperhydrosis (excessive underarm sweating). Botox can reduce sweating by up to 95%, and this treatment for hyperdrosis is subsidised by Medicare....
