Dr Gerard Ee, currently an aesthetic doctor practicing at The Clifford Clinc, created this website to answer the questions that people have regarding the aesthetic concerns around the eyes, and the solutions to them. It is a compilation of evidence based scientific reasoning and clinically proven treatment procedures to common aesthetic problems like dark eye circles, eye bags, double eyelids and wrinkles around the eyes, to aesthetic enhancements like Aegyo-Sal and eyebrow lift.

Each write up will typically include the causes of the problems and a simple anatomical explanation to aid your understanding. These explanations will help you understand why some treatment works and some doesn’t as everything that you see in the mirror happens because of anatomical changes. A detailed explanation on the treatments would be provided and it includes the technology, safety, downtime and expectations of the treatments.

While these content is written by Dr. Gerard Ee himself, it should not serve as a means to the self-diagnosis of your concerns or self-medication or treatment. Always consult a medical doctor for a better and accurate opinion on the problems that you have.
