About IDS Clinic

The Clinic is helmed by Dr SK Tan, who continues the same zeal and dedication to his work, a strict adherence to proper protocols and procedures, as well as a commitment towards using only results-oriented products that are backed up by scientific evidence.

Offering a few decades of experience the IDS Clinic promises to deliver results and client satisfaction. Known for his expertise in the treatment of pigmentary conditions (especially melasma) and acne, Dr SK Tan is also skilled in other aesthetics procedures including Botolinum toxin, fillers and various kinds of lasers. His experience includes roles as regional trained in various aesthetic procedures and devices, having trained and mentored numerous doctors locally and overseas.

Pursuit of academic excellence is also at the forefront of The IDS Clinic’s philosophy. Dr SK Tan has published several articles in prominent Aesthetic Dermatology and Dermatology journals internationally, and there is ongoing research carried out both in-house and in collaboration with international institutes. Such studies are not only of academic value, they also have practical implications, resulting in novel patent-pending product ingredients and innovative skin-diagnostic devices which are used in the clinic.
IDS Clinic is fitted out with state-of-the-art equipment and devices. These are used in innovative combination with various topical products to create unique and exclusive programs and treatment methods that deliver maximum results. The Gold Thread Rejuvenation treatment, for instance, is a one-of-a-kind procedure available only at IDS Clinic. Various other thread lift treatments are also exclusive to us.
A key feature of The IDS Clinic is the use of its very own clinical skincare range. Conceived and developed over several years, IDS skincare products were designed specifically to address the most common skin problems that Dr SK Tan has seen in over two decades of clinical experience. And, unlike consumer skincare for the mass market where cost may be a major inhibiting factor, IDS’s products have been scientifically formulated to deliver maximum efficacy, using cutting-edge ingredients in optimal concentrations, and rigorously tested by dermatologists. Some of these ingredients are patent-pending and unavailable anywhere else.

Whether you are seeking to prolong the effects of clinical treatments such as Botolinum toxin, filler injections and laser, or simply want to achieve healthy, radiant skin, IDS Skincare provides the perfect solution.
