As a teenager, I’m experiencing an escalation in oil production and hormonal acne. Being self conscious, I looked towards skincare products but unfortunately many irritated my skin. Thankfully though a family friend recommended Dr. Lin. When I started Dr. Lin’s products, particularly the Acne foaming facial wash and Acne corrector, I immediately saw results in my skin. My skin not only became clearer but it also developed a smoother skin texture. I did not experience any irritation, peeling or even redness. I definitely recommend Dr.Lin. I’m definitely using their products for long-term.

I have been seeing Dr. Lin for more than 18 years. His treatment and recommendations have been a dream come true for my skin. His staff is extremely friendly and understanding. Due to covid-19 is quite a long wait so plan accordingly but it's worth the wait.
