BONUS | Skin Resurfacing with Dr Davin Lim

In this special bonus Ask An Expert episode I’m joined by Dr Davin Lim. A board certified laser, procedural and aesthetic dermatologist, Dr Lim has over 20 credits to his name. Widely considered one of the world’s leading experts for laser-treated skin disorders and rejuvenation therapies including tattoo removal, acne scar revision and laser resurfacing, Dr Lim was our first port of call when it came to answering YOUR questions on skin resurfacing. 

Away from our regular brand founder conversations, I am asked so many highly specific questions about the skin. Given that I am an educated consumer and by no means an expert, it would be extremely unethical for me to even attempt to address your skin concerns which is why I insist on taking those questions to a medical doctor. This Ask An Expert series is giving you, the Glow Journal audience, unprecedented access to medical doctors, professors and dermatologists and, while the series is sponsored by Candela Medical, doctors legally and ethically have to remain completely objective in interviews like this. For this reason, this series is giving you, the listeners, completely unbiased expert answers to your most specific skin questions- questions that I cannot answer myself. 

In this episode, we’ve taken the questions YOU asked about skin resurfacing to Dr Lim - from what laser resurfacing actually does, how it works, and the difference between resurfacing and a peel, through to whether or not it can really do anything for acne scars, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
