Über Burger at Gangnam (Seocho)

Right across from Renewme Skin Clinic Seocho branch is a small burger joint called Über. Is the food there really outstanding as the name suggests? I had to go find out.

It says "pub" but trust me, it's far from one. Just think of it as a burger place.

To be honest, I had actually tried this place a couple times before, more than a year ago. Back then, the burgers were much more expensive (at least 11,000-13,000 KRW each) and the menu was full of variety. The burgers were unique, gigantic, and worth every won. However, a few months after this place nearly became my favorite, the restaurant apparently had to make some cutbacks, and ended up changing the food entirely to reduce ingredient costs. I gotta admit, my heart sank when I first heard this, and I decided I just wouldn't go if the burgers weren't the same.

A year later, I decided maybe it was time to give this place a second chance and see what they were up to lately. After all, they're still standing, right? Here's a peek at their menu:

You've got the Überger (Über+Burger), the Überger Big, Burger Pop (which means extra bacon and pineapple), and Burger Pop Big. And that's it. They've got drinks too, and other dishes like hot dogs and French fries and chicken wings, since after all, it's still a "pub," but the menu was slightly disappointing. Drinks need to be ordered separately and fries come with the burger.

The black sauce on the fries is balsamic vinegar dressing, which I think was a bit too bold for my taste. Fries taste best with ketchup, in my opinion. Or chili sauce or nacho cheese, anything else. Plus, the fries were the fast food kind, which still tasted fine, maybe minus the sauce.

The burger was good in the sense that I have never tasted a bad-tasting burger in my life. It's hard to go wrong with burgers, so I enjoyed this a lot. However, it wasn't high in my books and I am not sure I would visit again. If you're looking for something better than McDonald's and still fairly affordable, this is the place for you. But I'm the type that would spend a couple more and get the real deal.

Directions: walk about 3 minutes from Nambu Bus Terminal station exit 5, and it's on your left.

Treatments to Accompany Jaw Botox

Slimmer face and a contoured jawline is all the craze these days - ladies want to look sharper and feminine, and are turning to aesthetics to help them achieve this sophisticated look. Of the many "V-line" procedures available in the Korean aesthetic market, one of the most popular and affordable treatments may just be botox injections.

If you happened to click on this post on purpose, chances are that you probably already know what botox does for the jaws, because this post is about the treatments to accompany it. However, in case you are simply a random passerby who happened to stumble across this page, let me explain: botox for aesthetic purposes, can help to relax the muscles over time. When injected into areas such as the forehead or frown lines, the relaxed muscles cannot make any strong facial expressions that cause further wrinkles. For the jaws, botox relieves the masseter muscle (muscles we use to chew) and induces atrophy, which in result can have facial slimming effects.

However, one important thing to remember about jaw botox is that this injection affects the muscle only. It does nothing for the skin, or for the fat around the jawline. Therefore, if you have any further skin concerns or if botox simply is just not enough, here are three options you can consider.

1. Lifting (Thread Lift, HIFU)

For aging and sagging skin, masseter muscles reduced by botox can actually make the sagging worse. In this case it's important to combine a treatment that can regenerate collagen and help tighten the skin around the jaw line, with PDO threads or HIFU treatments.

2. Contouring Injection

Botox may not have such drastic effects if your jawline area has a lot of fat. If so, procedures that can help dissolve and remove fat would be the optimal treatment to help achieve a slimmer face. One thing to keep in mind is that fat-dissolving injections may need at least 3+ sessions total for you to see results.

3. Chin Filler

For a more defined and prominent V-line, you can complete the look with a dermal filler injection on the chin. You might think elongating the chin makes your face look longer or bigger, but on the contrary it can give you a nice oval shape that makes your face more proportionate. Furthermore, adding volume to the front chin can slightly pull the skin along your jawline, improving any possible double chin.

Reverse your age by treating neck wrinkles!

Most of the time, people are too busy treating their skin or faces to pay any attention to neck wrinkles, which can be just as important when it comes to anti-aging. Because the neck has relatively less muscle and thinner skin compared to the face, wrinkles can form much more easily and are not easily removable. Therefore, it's important to prevent neck wrinkles well in advance through healthy daily habits and regular treatments for maintenance. After all, they do say that no matter how youthful the face looks, you can always tell someone's age by looking at their neck.

Neck wrinkles are generally caused by two factors:
  • Aging
  • Bad sleeping habits/daily habits
Habits can alleviate wrinkles if you remember to stretch your neck often, maintain good posture, and moisturize daily (as dryness can cause wrinkles to form more quickly). For wrinkles that cannot be helped with just a change in habit, here are some procedures offered at our clinic:

1. HIFU Treatment
HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) treatments such as Ultherapy or Shurink use ultrasound to deliver energy deep into the SMAS layer of the skin, the layer that is targeted for facelift procedures. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not damage the skin and with minimal downtime, which regenerates collagen over the course of several weeks/months for natural lifting effects. Sessions are recommended once a year or so for maintenance.

2. Rejuran Healer
Rejuran is a gel formation of polynucleotide created with salmon sperm DNA fragments, molecules that are free of side-effects and have been proven to induce long-term tissue regeneration from within the deep dermis. It can gradually improve the general biological condition of damaged skin as well as regenerate new cells to keep your skin young and healthy.

3. PDO Thread Lift
Approved by the KFDA as the interbody fusible thread of highest grade, PDO (Polydioxanne) threads enter the skin to stimulate cell regrowth and collagen formation, resulting in facial lifting, whitening, and cellulite improvement. Cogged PDO threads have been approved by the KFDA, and works by pulling the sagging hyperderma upwards. Targeted areas also regenerate collagen and trigger fibrosis, providing more elasticity to the skin.

Ways To Fix Your Double Chin in Seoul Korea

Happy Lunar New Year, everybody! Before I start off with today's blog post, here's what a traditional Korean greeting (usually directed towards elders) looks like, to wish you a blessed and happy new year. May your 2016 be filled with happiness, love, and health!

A big concern for many during holiday season is gaining weight. There's just so much food going on, and Korea certainly is not an exception. During traditional holidays, most of our dishes are fried pancake style, and the main dish is a rice cake soup - which means basically everything is either packed with fat or carbs. Don't be surprised if you notice the pouch in your belly expanding a bit over the holidays; this is completely normal. ;)

But regardless of weight or fat, sometimes there are those areas that seem to stay a bit plump regardless of your diet or weight. One particular area is the chin, more specifically the double chin. And naturally, this is a frequent topic brought up by patients who seek consultation at our clinic. Could there be a solution that would fix that stubborn bit of flesh that could be the culprit in making you look older or chubbier than you actually are?
The short answer is, it depends on what is causing your double chin, as there may be a lot more reasons than you may think. Let's take a look at the different causes, and the possible solutions for each case.

1. Short Chin: Dermal Fillers

Take a ruler or a pen, and line it from your nose to your lips. Does it touch your chin as well? If it doesn't, there is a chance that you've got a short chin. For short chins, a temporary but non-surgical solution is dermal filler injections, which can lengthen the chin, and correct the shape to make it more aesthetically refined. What's more, when your chin gets relatively larger due to the filler, it will tighten the skin underneath your chin to reduce some of your double chin. Here is Dr. Kim of our Dongdaemun branch, as an example:

2. Excess Fat: INNOfill/Contouring Injection/AccuLift

Sometimes the reason you have a double chin is simply the fact that you've got a lot of fat in that area. It can be difficult to remove this naturally through diet, stretching, or exercise. At Renewme Skin Clinic we can offer three options that can help remove this fat non-surgically.

Contouring Injection is a mixture of solutions injected into the chin that help naturally dissolve the fat in the targeted area. Results are a bit slower and require multiple sessions, but the downtime is minimal and can be effective for the right candidates.

INNOfill is also a needle based treatment in which radiofrequency is emitted from a needle tip to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin. We recommend this along with the contouring injections.

AccuLift is the most drastic procedure of the three, and has downtime of a couple of weeks (swelling and pain). However, this might be the most effective, as the laser injected underneath the skin melts the fat, which is then directly removed (like facial liposuction). Not everybody is a candidate for this procedure, however, and you should always consult an experienced doctor first before you decide on this treatment. When done correctly, the results can be dramatic and semi-permanent (as long as you don't gain weight) with just one session.

3. Sagging Skin: Ultherapy/Shurink

As you grow older, your skin will lost its elasticity and tightness, which in the end is unfortunately inevitable. This lack of elasticity may make your chin sag a bit, creating a double chin. This is not a matter of fat or the shape of your chin; the best method for this case is to tighten the skin in general, and generate more collagen. The most recommended treatment would be a HIFU treatment like Ultherapy or Shurink, which uses ultrasound to reach the deepest layers of the skin and regenerate collagen, for non-invasive face lift effects.

If a double chin is your concern, contact our dermatologist today for a consultation! Your solution might just be a couple of treatment sessions away.

Treatment For Your Rosacea In Seoul, Korea

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is an iconic symbol of one of the biggest holidays in the world, and a beautiful story that teaches how you should never judge a book by its cover because every single soul is valuable and can serve a special purpose.

Or, you know... some pessimists or realists might point out that "red-nosed" is probably a euphemism for someone who's either drunk or has rosacea, which is the crude and amateur segue I've made for today's blog topic.

Now, rosacea is a skin condition that may first be characterized by the redness especially around the center of the face, due to dilated blood vessels. However, other symptoms include pustules, papules, and swelling. Naturally, it is strongly advised that you seek treatment in the early stages before the symptoms get worse.

There are four subtypes of rosacea, as explained by the American Academy of Dermatology:

Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: Redness, flushing, visible blood vessels.
Papulopustular rosacea: Redness, swelling, and acne-like breakouts.
Phymatous rosacea: Skin thickens and has a bumpy texture.
Ocular rosacea: Eyes red and irritated, eyelids can be swollen, and person may have what looks like a sty.
With time, people who have rosacea often see permanent redness in the center of their face.

Of course, it is of utmost important to consult a dermatology specialist who can provide the right treatment options for your particular type of rosacea. Since early treatment is the key to preventing and treating rosacea well, here are some tips for rosacea patients, as well as guidelines to prevent it if you're not a patient already.

  • Avoid using any soaps with surfactants and rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Don't exfoliate or use scrubs that can irritate the skin.
  • Don't go for face massages.
  • Don't use strong cosmetic products or cleansers.
  • Don't try to extract your own acne.
  • Avoid sudden temperature changes.
  • Always apply sun screen and try to limit exposure to too much UV radiation.
  • Avoid spicy foods, caffeinated drinks, alcohol, and smoking.

Treatments Available At Renewme Skin Clinic

Excel V laser is an advanced equipment by Cutera that effectively treats intractable vascular conditions. The laser beam is size adjustable, can treat various layers of the skin, and has a steady cooling system that minimizes pain and downtime.

Treatment Package for Skin Moisture and Elasticity in Korea

If you're looking for a simple one-day package to pamper up your skin a little bit, here is a recommended package for you. These treatments are not targeted for specific problems such as pigmentation or acne scars or enlarged pores. It is more suggested for customers who don't have any major problems with their skin but rather wish to improve the general skin tone and moisturize.

PRP + DermaShine + Arneb Laser

What is PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, or plasma that contains condensed platelets which can act to vitalize stem cells. Blood is withdrawn from the patient, centrifuged, then transplanted. This is done in combination with the DermaShine injection, also known as hydrolifting, water shine, aqua shine, etc.

DermaShine Injection

What is DermaShine?
DermaShine is a procedure in which hyaluronic acid is evenly injected across the skin to add moisture and elasticity.

Why moisturize with hyaluronic injections?
Effects have been proven through clinical experiments. Hyaluronic injections provide instant moisturizing effects that cannot be achieved through topical or oral medications, moisturizers, or by drinking water.

What is hyaluronic acid (HA)?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-derived molecule that exists in all human beings and decreases in quantity over time. The substance is also the main ingredient for dermal fillers, due to its abilities to plump up and add volume to aging skin. Another major benefit of hyaluronic acid is its water retaining capacity, which makes it an excellent moisturizer for the skin.

Arneb Laser

Arneb Synergy Lifter is the most advanced RF and laser laser light combination system, most effective in removing wrinkles and tightening the skin. This technology uses sound pressure to draw in the upper skin to apply the laser under the skin, concentrating on the skin layer, skin type, and condition.

Advantages include:
-Less pain during procedure
-No need for anesthesia
-Patients can see results after one session
-Patients can wear makeup immediately after

Here is a video that shows how the Arneb laser works:

The Right Way To Prevent & Treat Acne

Acne has probably been one of the most common pain in the butt for as long as anyone can remember. Even worse than actual acne are the scars left behind, which can never really be 100% removed once they have formed on the skin. This is why early treatment and prevention is of utmost importance.

Another key point when it comes to acne, is not to try and solve the problem on your own. This especially includes popping your own zits without professional help, or using acne products that aren't suitable for your skin, causing infections or dermatitis and making the skin worse. In such cases, you should refrain from most self-care routines, even exfoliating, until your skin returns to normal.

One more amateur mistake is thinking that acne is primarily caused by excess oil on the skin, and using a stronger soap or rigorously washing your face multiple times a day. This can actually cause further irritation.

Even certified dermatologists at our clinic know better than to try and treat their own acne. Checking out their own skin in the mirror cannot be as exact as having a fellow doctor examine the skin more closely. Self-pimple popping, when not done with prior training or knowledge, can aggravate inflammation and disrupt the skin surface, which is why our doctors receive cortisone injections or extractions from other doctors instead of doing it themselves.

Here is what might go wrong when you take matters into your own hands:

1. More acne, more scars.
2. More acne, more scars, more stress → more acne
3. More makeup, covering up face with hair → more acne (repeat 1 & 2)
4. Improper use of cosmetic products → inflammation, breakouts, unnecessary money spending
5. Acne can spread to the chin and neck area, where scars are more difficult to treat.

For best results and an acne clear face, visit a dermatologist! :)
