Hot off the heels in aesthetic treatments of late is Rejuran, an injectable anti-aging solution from Korea that slows down aging and improves skin elasticity in general. Doctors who offer Rejuran at their clinics preach it as the holy grail of anti-aging, mostly because its key ingredient is polynucleotides (PA), a molecule extracted from salmon DNA that stimulates cell growth and healing of the skin. Further, polynucleotides are safe and compatible with human skin with no side effects.
A good aesthetic doctor should know that unlike botox and fillers, the results of Rejuran are not immediate and as such, managing patient expectation is key. As there are also different types of Rejuran treatment in the market, your doctor should know how to advise accordingly. Lastly, as Rejuran is administered through a series of precise micro injections, it’s important that your doctor either has the necessary equipment or a sturdy pair of hands.
Below are three aesthetic doctors in Singapore whom we believe fit the criteria above plus have a good patient record in Rejuran treatment.
Dr Edwin Lim
Dr Edwin Lim’s expertise and interest lie in aesthetic injectable procedures such as fillers, skinboosters and neurotoxins — so at least with regards to being a pro at injections, you know he’s got that part down. Dr Lim believes in using well-placed injections to deliver natural looking results, so rest assured that he knows the appropriate treatment dosage to advise accordingly. Patients who have done Rejuran treatment with Dr Lim have praised him for his “superb pair of steady hands” and are overall pleased with the results.
Some patients also highlight that Dr Lim made the entire Rejuran treatment smooth and easy for them despite their fear of needles. While some clinics prefer to use machines to inject Rejuran, Dr Lim uses only his hands to ensure precision.
Karen, who went for three sessions of Rejuran Healer with Dr Lim, rates her experience with Dr Lim as a positive one with appropriate advice given by him. After her sessions, her skin looks visibly brighter with lesser fine lines, giving her confidence to leave the house without makeup.
At Dr Lim’s clinic, Edwin Lim Medical Aesthetic Clinic, find three types of Rejuran treatments. There’s Rejuran Healer for overall skin anti-aging; Rejuran S Acne for depressed acne scars; and Rejuran I (Eye) Treatment that works similarly to Rejuran Healer but is dedicated to the eye area.
For patients keen on trying Rejuran S Acne to treat their acne scars, Dr Lim may combine that with CO2 Fractional Resurfacing Laser to ensure smaller acne scars get attention as well. As for the ultimate skin rejuvenation concoction, Dr Lim recommends combining Rejuran Healer with Skinboosters to get the best of both worlds.
Here is Dr Lim administering Rejuran Healer:

Dr Vicki Leong
Dr Vicki Leong is highly sought after for skin conditions such as acne, unrefined skin, pigmentation and melasma. Not only does she have a keen eye for beauty, she’s fully accredited in injectable procedures — which means she’s also highly skilled in administering Rejuran.
Dr Leong is a big fan of Rejuran and highly recommends it to anyone looking for younger, supple skin. Patients trust her for her expertise and are not disappointed every time.
At her clinic, VIDASKIN Medical Aesthetic Clinic, LED light therapy or Calecim Serum may be applied to enhance results and recovery. As the effects of Rejuran are not immediate, Dr Leong suggests combining the treatment with Skinboosters to achieve immediate skin dewiness. The clinic has a package for those interested.
To ensure longevity of patients’ Rejuran treatments, Dr Leong and her team at VIDASKIN have developed a premium skincare line, which includes a gentle hydrating cleanser that contains nourishing and hydrating ingredients.
Due to Dr Leong’s strong female clientele base, she might be the ideal doctor for females looking to do Rejuran for the first time.
VIDASKIN Medical Aesthetic Clinic
VIDASKIN definitely ranks as one of the prettiest aesthetic clinics in Singapore due to its pretty in pink and elegant theme. Located at Wheelock Place, the clinic is extremely spacious and well designed. Treatment rooms and purchase areas for skincare products are also well organised for ease of getting around.

Dr Jonathan Lee
Dr Jonathan Lee is a leading surgeon who specialises in surgery of the hand and an aesthetic doctor who focuses on rejuvenative medicine for the face, skin and body. Because of his experiences in hand surgery which requires him to be extremely delicate, Dr Lee is able to bring that same attention to detail and precision to aesthetic procedures. This means when it comes to injecting Rejuran, Dr Lee’s sturdy hands leave no room for mistakes.
Contrary to what everyday people think, Dr Lee does not find cosmetic requests frivolous in any way and he in fact wants to help patients change the way they perceive themselves. He sees cosmetic medicine as art and hence is driven by his passion and purpose to help patients look their best.
In this video, you can learn more about his personal beliefs and values:
Dr Lee believes that no two faces are the same; hence all treatments at his clinic The Aesthetic Studio are tailor made. He usually takes a multiple-treatment approach, so when it comes to skin rejuvenation, he might suggest Rejuran with something else.
Apart from customised aesthetic treatments, Dr Lee believes in personalised skincare too. He adopts the Universkin method, an approach that allows doctors to tailor make skincare for each individual.
If this is your first time doing an aesthetic treatment, Dr Lee might be a good choice, especially if you’re nervous about it. His years of experience in emergency rooms have well equipped him with handling unexpected situations should they arise. His staff are medically trained (including the receptionist) and life-saving drugs are available at the clinic too.
The Aesthetic Studio
The Aesthetic Studio has two outlets, both located within medical premises at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre and Parkway East Medical Centre. Both clinics reflect Dr Lee’s love and taste in the arts, as textured wood and marble panelling outfit the clinic. If you’re lucky, you might find a few art pieces too! Inside, treatment rooms welcome natural lighting with floor to ceiling windows.
