Online Questionnaire Forms

ALGORITHMS BY DR DAVIN LIM

Thank you for your inquiry. This form is designed for me to understand more about your skin concern & how to best treat them. It allows my team & I to triage your appointments & provide you with a report.

Though high-resolution photos will be useful in determining the algorithm, it does not replace a real time clinical examination. Clinical features such as atrophy (thin areas) & hypertrophy (thick areas), 3D depth perception, & fibrosis (hard to feel areas) cannot be captured with photos. I do need to touch, stretch & poke to understand the true nature of your scars.

Please fill out the form that applies to you.

PERSONAL & CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU

Name(Required)
Born Gender(Required)
Has your weight been stable for the past 12 months?(Required)
This gives me a gauge of skin laxity which plays a part in revision.
What is your ethnicity?(Required)
Have you regularly smoked in the past 12 months?(Required)

ACNE TREATMENTS. PAST & PRESENT.

1. What acne treatments have you had?(Required)
2. Are you currently on acne treatments?(Required)
3. Do you still get acne?(Required)
It is very important to answer this correctly as it has a significant impact on how you remodel scars following a procedure. Active acne refers to any spots, cysts, zits & breakouts you may have in the last 30 days.

SCAR TREATMENTS

1. What scar treatments have you had?(Required)
2. Has any treatment been successful?(Required)
3. What is the emotional impact with your scarring?(Required)
4. How do you rate your scars physically?(Required)
5. What is your aim of scar revision?(Required)
6. What are your expectations & aims?(Required)
This dictates the algorithm of revision.
7. Is there a family history of acne & or acne scarring?(Required)
This dictates the algorithm of revision.

HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS

The better the photos the more accurate the assessment. Please follow the guide outlined below. No make-up.

For NORMAL lighting I require- • Full face: 1 • Side (right & left): 2 • Oblique (right & left): 2

Minimum total: 5 photos. Additional close ups will be great. High resolution photos will allow me to zoom in.

Angled lighting. Please take at least 4 photos of angled or tangential lighting. This allows me to understand depth perception. I cannot assess this with 2D imaging using normal lighting.

In summary 10 plus high-quality focused photographs are required.

Take 5 photos in total. 1 front on, 2 on the right side. 2 on the left side. You can take additional photos of areas such as the temples, nose etc. should there be any scars visible.

    REPORT

    A detailed report will be sent to you based on your photos & questionnaire. The accuracy of this report ranges between 50% to 95% accuracy, depending on your scar signature.

    The body of this report gives one algorithmic approach, based upon your answers & photo- graphs. In some cases, there are several algorithms that can be undertaken.

    *Remember, this report is not a substitute for real time examination. I employ touch, stretch, animation & 3D visualization to understand scar signatures.

    BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER & SCARS.

    BDD presents as follows; if you have scars but only you notice them. This means your scars are subjectively severe, but objectively mild. A good test is to ask your family members & close friends for an objective option.

    I do not treat BDD acne scar patients with epic & invasive treatments such as surgery, ex- tensive subcision or deep fully ablative lasers. The risks are too great. If you have BDD scar- ring, smaller, more cost effective & less invasive treatments are advocated. These include small dot CO2, erbium lasers, TCA Paint & collagen stimulating fillers such as Profhilo. Given the banal nature of these treatments, your revision program will be with my experienced team of nurses.

    EXPLAINATION OF COSTS INVOLVED IN ACNE SCAR REVISION

    Cost for each treatment (conducted by myself) is inclusive of all treatment methods that I may use to rectify your scars, this includes-

    • Surgery- excision, punch, punch elevation, dermal grafting, fat transfer

    • Collagen stimulating fillers- example Profhilo, Radiesse

    • HA fillers

    • Surgical subcision

    • All types of lasers- fractional, fully ablative, non-ablative, pico, vascular

    • Peels- TCA, phenol

    • RF microneedling

    • Microneedling

    NURSE RUN ACNE SCAR REVISION PROGRAM

    Wherever possible I will refer you to my senior nurses for scar revision. As a guide this cost saving is in the region of 50-75% compared to my procedural fee. They have extensive experience in lasers, deep peels, RF devices, & dermal fillers. The four main situations that I may refer you to my nurse include-

    • Easier to remodel scar signatures. Examples include boxcar & ice pick scars. This pat- tern is amenable to lasers & deep focal peels. My nurses will give you a similar result as to what I can deliver.

    • Darker skin types. For deep scars in darker skin, the aim is to raise the scars to a more superficial level. This allows me to perform one (or two) sessions to treat the remainder of scars.

    • Objectively mild scars. This pattern does not require complex surgery or epic lasers with prolonged recovery. Small, low downtime, low risk lasers & EBD (energy-based de- vices) are all that is needed.

    • Budget conscious. I am aware of the costs involved in scar revision. My nurses can de- liver good outcomes using non-surgical techniques as per above.

    Virtual consultation questionnaire

    (All conditions apart from acne scarring)

    YOUR DETAILS

    What is your name?(Required)
    What is your primary concern?(Required)

    * Acne consultations: The aim of this consultation is to provide you with a strategic management plan for your skin. I do not prescribe medication for acne as my work is entirely procedural. Medications such as the oral contraceptive pill, anti-hormonal medications & isotretinoin all require close monitoring. A medical dermatologist can assist in prescriptive medicine.
    How long have you had this problem?(Required)
    Have you had treatment for this problem before?(Required)
    If yes, please elaborate, including success and/or failures.
    Are you currently using any topicals or oral medication on your skin (gels, creams, serums, lotions, tablets, herbs etc…)?(Required)
    If yes, please elaborate.

    Photo requirements

    Photos are crucial to ascertain a diagnosis. The clearer the better. Please provide a series of between 5 to 8 photos in good lighting.

    Here is a super quick 2 minute video that shows you how to take clinically sound photos.

    Many thanks for taking the time to complete this questionnaire. The more information you can provide the better I can understand how to formulate a treatment plan for you.

    For record keeping purposes, you may record the consultation from your end. This may assist you in recalling the points discussed. Additionally I will provide you with written recommendations during the consultation. This will be sent to you in real time.

    Disclaimer: a virtual consultation is a compromise that bridges the gap between no consultation & a real time consultation. The accuracy of a diagnosis depends largely upon photographs, however some aspects of skin are difficult to capture on static photographs. Examples include shadowing of contours, reflectance of light, ability to visualize redness, & 3D spatial concerns. Dr Davin Lim
