TikTok has become the go-to platform for a lot of professionals to share their key expertise. This has become beneficial not only to showcase their specialities but also for users to gain knowledge. We are seeing this trend become even more popular amongst healthcare professionals.
Healthcare professionals on TikTok are helping users in several ways by utilizing the platform. First and foremost, the ability to inform and educate the public with legitimate information, abolishing self-diagnosis and belief in myths. Healthcare professionals also help raise awareness about important health issues and burning topics such as mental health, vaccination, and sexual health. One of the most helpful is how to prevent the spread of infectious diseases through self-efforts. Healthcare professionals also allow people to relate to them and connect at a personal level through engagements.

Dermatologist Talks: Korean Skincare Routine Facial Hacks Want to know what my 3-Step DIY Home Facial looks like? Here’s a hint, it’s also what I call my K-beauty medifacial hack—for all skin types! The concept of a facial isn’t quite defined by science— from the layperson’s perspective it can be a cleanse/extraction/mask treatment at an aesthetician’s ; at a dermatologist’s office this can include laser facials/chemical peels or a combination of procedures. Dermatologist Recommended Skincare Routines Derms generally don’t recommend extractions—this causes worse inflammation and scarring. K-beauty popularised medi-facials which are a form of microdermabrasion (hydrodermabrasion) that exfoliate and infuse nutrients into skin simultaneously.These days home facial devices can mimic certain technologies well—microdermabrasion and radiofrequency for instance in hand-held devices. Chemical peels with gentle fruit enzyme peels like papain and bromelain are safe even for sensitive skin to use at home when formulated correctly. Dermatologist’s Skincare Tips But are facials actually effective? What makes an express facial for that matter—even a thing? Can we hack the process at home? K-Beauty Skincare Routine Basics Instant Glow/Deep Cleansing Face Mist Facial SUITABLE FOR: ALL SKIN TYPES, ESPECIALLY HELPFUL FOR ACNE, PIGMENTATION, AGING SKIN Step 1 CLEANSE EFFECTIVELY Step 2 TONE-INFUSE ANTIOXIDANTS/PEELS Step 3 GEL MASK: LOCK IN ANTIOXIDANT RESERVE WITH VITAMIN C AND DESERT PLANTS Use a blade-style sonic cleanser The Korean medifacial utilises a blade or spatula style device with sonic pulsations to effectively dislodge micro particles such as PM2.5 airborne pollutants and also exfoliation to enhance skin cell renewal. Most clinics incorporate this as the first step in cleansing, which may or may not be followed by hydrodermabrasion. When selecting your tool of choice, look for one that has at least 20,000 pulsations per second and also has the dual function mode— the first is what we call the cleansing mode. #skincareroutine #skincaretips #skincare #sgtiktok #sgdoctor #sgskincare #singaporedoctor #dermatologist #koreanskincare #kbeautyroutine #kbeautyrecommendation
