Hus-hu: Seoul's Best English Speaking Dermatology Clinic

After struggling with rosacea-- a vascular disease that causes intense redness and flushing of the face-- for the past few years, I decided to bite the bullet and experiment with laser therapy. After doing a bit of research on the internet (and cringing at some of the photos of the extreme side effects) I figured the benefits those that had had the procedure spoke of outweighed the risks.

So I made my way to Hus-hu Dermatology Clinic in Apgujeong. I had been to the dental clinic of the same name and location before and was exceptionally happy with their services and the results, so presumed the skin clinic would be the same. As it turned out, I was right. 

A Visit to TengTeng Skin Clinic

Last year, over 399,000 people flocked to Seoul for medical tourism purposes. And for good reason. Not only are medical procedures far cheaper than those in other countries, but Korea's medical facilities are state-of-the-art and medical practitioners are some of the most experienced in the world. This proves especially true for cosmetic procedures, which are extremely commonplace in this appearance-focused city.

And it shows. Koreans not only have beautiful faces but flawless skin, as well, thanks partially to their use of elaborate, systematic skin care regimens and regular visits to the dermatologist.

Hus-hu: Seoul's Best English Speaking Dental Clinic

Going to the dentist can be scary anywhere, but even more so in a place where language barriers exist and clinical procedures aren't necessarily the same as those in one's home country.

Still, one's health should not be neglected simply because one is intimidated by language or unknown procedural costs.  Despite my nursing background, it actually took me a couple years to work up the courage to go to the dentist in Korea.  As a result, I ended up with a few cavities and an urgent need to get myself to the nearest clinic ASAP.  I did a few searches on Google and came across multiple testimonials that led me to Hus-hu Dental Clinic, a highly reputed dental office that caters to both locals and foreigners from all around the world.

Review: MediTour app (Android / iDevice)

Brought to you by the Korea Tourism Organization, the MediTour app (Android and iDevices) offers ample information for those bound for a Korean medical tourism trip. With versions in English, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian, there’s no language barrier and few language issues to speak of. While good if you’re already coming to Korea or desiring more information, it’s missing a few things to give it the highest recommendation.
