Hello everyone! In this “affordable” listicle, I’ll be covering 4 aesthetic clinics that I’ve personally visited that also cater to men. Currently, most online reviews/articles are by women, covering aesthetic treatments meant for women.

Aesthetic treatments should be for men too.

That has always struck me as strange, given that men are more susceptible to cosmetic blemishes (acne, scarring, etc). As such, I’ve recently embarked on a journey to learn more about aesthetic treatments for men – and these are 5 of the best clinics I’ve personally visited.

1) DrPlus

Run by Dr. Kenneth, DrPlus is an aesthetic clinic in Tanjong Pagar that focuses on collagen-infused aesthetic treatments, as well as men-centric treatments such as laser hair removal and Valor Plus (which helps combat erectile dysfunction).

Undergoing a collagen laser facial with Dr. Kenneth.

Treatments done: Laser hair removal, Valor Plus for penile maintenance/erectile dysfunction, Collagen Plus facial, NCTF 135 HA Skinbooster + Microfractional laser treatment

Why I like them: As compared to other aesthetic clinics that I’ve visited, DrPlus feels more personal and laid-back (making it perfect for potentially awkward treatments such as the Boyzillian or Valor Plus). It’s like going to your neighbourhood GP clinic versus going to Raffles Medical. There’s nothing wrong with Raffles Medical of course, but I have a slight preference for the homely feel of the neighbourhood GP clinic. As for the results, I’ve found my body hair to be growing thinner and slower after the laser treatments, while the Valor Plus treatment was also noticeably effective. In addition to men-centric treatments, Dr. Kenneth also does regular aesthetic procedures as well, such as collagen facials, acne scar lightening laser treatments, skinboosters and even Botox.

Price: Wah So Shiok readers get to enjoy special trial prices – $9.90 for underarm collagen laser hair removal, $39.00 for Valor Plus, $180 for the Collagen Plus facial, $399 for NCTF 135 HA Skinbooster treatment, and $98 for Microfractional Laser. Should you choose to sign up for further sessions after the trials, readers also get an exclusive 20% discount on regular treatment prices, which also extends to other treatments such as Botox, HIFU, Threadlifts, etc. Simply state that you were referred by Wah So Shiok in the booking message, and you’ll get to enjoy the affordable trial sessions and discounts. As always, the trial sessions are non-committal, so feel free to go for one and determine for yourselves if the treatments are effective afterwards.

2) Asimont Clinic

If budget is a concern, Asimont Clinic offers an upscale experience at affordable trial prices.

With Dr. Alfred Li of Asimont Clinic.

Treatment done: Sylfirm X RF Microneedling

Why I like them: I really enjoyed the Sylfirm X RF Microneedling treatment. It’s brief (the treatment process was around 20 minutes), and has little side-effects, making it a great lunchtime treatment option. While Asimont isn’t the only clinic locally to offer Sylfirm X, it does offer it at a relatively affordable price (especially considering its Orchard location), done by the steady Dr. Li. I also have to give props to the Asimont assistants, who called me the next day to check if the redness had quelled. It’s the little touches like these that separate great aesthetic clinics from average ones.

Price: Those looking to try out the Sylfirm X treatment can quote “WAHSOSHIOK” while making your appointment to enjoy a special trial price of $438. To secure the trial price, simply fill in this booking form. The trial price is very attractive – in fact, it might be one of the cheapest in the local market.

3) Lux Aesthetic Clinic

If you prefer a female aesthetic doctor, I would recommend Dr. Kellyn Shiau of Lux Aesthetic Clinic.

Treatments done: Q-switch laser treatment for acne scars, Hydrafacial for maintainance

Why I like them: I was initially worried that Dr. Shiau would come across as too posh (given her high-profile media features), but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that she is very down-to-earth. We had a short conversation during the Q-switch treatment, and when asked why she decided to specialise as an aesthetic doctor, she replied that she found aesthetic medical work eminently satisfying as she’s helping others (including me) increase their self-esteem and enhance their confidence. Honestly, most aesthetic clinics have the same laser/aesthetic machines and treatments, so efficacy-wise it’s not going to differ by much. It’s the doctor that makes a difference, and it’s always great to have one who’s passionate about their craft.

Price: For first-time customers, you can quote the promo code “WAHSOSHIOKLUX” in-store to enjoy a free consultation with Dr. Shiau, which would allow her to analyse your skin condition and recommend suitable treatments. Price is admittedly on the higher side – and there aren’t trial sessions available – but I suppose expertise cannot be valued in dollars and cents.

4) Gangnam Laser Clinic

As its name suggests, Gangnam Laser Clinic specialises in laser treatments, offering a bevvy of laser technologies that are popular in Korea, including Pico Laser (currently in vogue), Ultra Yellow Laser, and skin boosters.

With Dr. Khaw of Gangnam Laser Clinic.

Treatments done: Pico laser and skin booster for acne scars

Why I like them: As Gangnam Laser Clinic (GLC) specialises in laser treatments, it offers certain laser treatments that other aesthetic clinics do not (the aforementioned clinics do not offer Pico laser, nor yellow laser). If you’re keeping up with the latest trends in aesthetics and want to try them out, GLC is a great place to start your aesthetic journey. I was attended to by Dr. Daniel Khaw, who shared with me that he used to be a psychiatrist before transitioning to becoming an aesthetic doctor. When I questioned his seemingly unconventional career change, he relayed that both are similar as both professions help patients feel better about themselves. That really struck a chord with me, and I could sense his interest in improving not just the physical condition of his patients, but also their mental state as well.

Price: Readers who are interested in trying out Gangnam Laser Clinic can enjoy a promotional trial price of $118 for the Pico Laser treatment.

That sums up this short listicle on the 6 best aesthetic clinics that cater to men. I’ve personally visited all of them, and put my skin on the line. After doing so, I can confidently attest to the merits of all 4 options listed in this article. Whether you’re looking for acne scar, slimming, hair removal, hair loss, or even erectile dysfunction treatments, these 4 options will have something for you. It’s time to break out of gender stereotypes – men can embrace aesthetic treatments as well.
