I’m a guy wanting to get some feedback on a quote i got from renewme skin clinie in Seoul. I’m not due to go to Seoul until early next year but I’ve got some damaged skin with lots of ache scars on my face that i wanted to smooth out. I will be in Seoul for about 8-9 days and was wondering what you all think of the treatment and cost, do you think it’s okay? I will post the details of the quote below:

I’ve been to renewme a few times for price and convenience. I did an acne peeling facial called “88,” and IV nutrient therapy. I would also drop in there every now and then to deal with trouble spots and get a steroid injection on an acne spot which helps it go away by the next day.
They have a few different locations. Price wise they tended to be more competitive than other clinics, but let me check to see what the average price tends to be. I have an actor friend (Korean-Spanish guy) here that’s had a few laser skin toning treatments at clinics that are only known to locals. I’ll ask him for some info as well.
But since you’re coming here next year, you’ll have plenty of time to shop around, also clinics are always running events and specials, so you might find a really great deal.

Thanks for your reply. I showed my prices to my sister in law who is from Korea, she said it looks quite expensive but she doesn’t know much about skin clinics in Korea. On the other hand her hairdresser is very knowledgeable about them in Seoul and will recommend some local ones to get a quote from. I will post for others here so that we can all share some good clinics or good specials.
Here is a quote I got from Leader skin care (price seems quite similar and to me it seems difficult to know which is the better deal compared to Renewme? O.o):
Thank you for your enquiry.
This is Tatiana and I am an English coordinator at Leaders Clinic, Dogok Branch.
With regards to your query, our doctor has advised the following treatment:
-CO2 Fractional Laser
-Leaders’ Subcision Treatment
A combination of these 3 treatments will be most effective during your 8-9 day period stay to eliminate the scarring and allow the skin to heal. An estimated minimal cost is 2,500,000 KRW. This may vary depending on a more thorough consultation with the doctor.
If you require further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email, or to directly set up an appointment: +82-10-2180-5440

I’ve seen laser skin-toning treatments that go between 1 M to 1.2 M that include 3 to 5 sessions. However, all lasers are not created equal and Fractional Laser treatment, which is essentially skin resurfacing might be priced higher. Also, are you OK with the downtime the laser might cause? Your skin will appear like you just had a real bad sun burn with scabbing for the next few days post treatment. It would be essential for you to stay indoors, and apply good sun protection if you do go out. Leaders is also popular, a lot of foreigners living in Korea like to go there because of their communication skills.
After doing some naver searches, renewme and leaders quote does seem high in comparison to smaller clinics that cater to Koreans:
This clinic for instance (Lamar Skin) has this treatment stack (15 total treatments) for 870,000 aprox $800 USD:•3 Fraxel Xena Laser Treatments + 3 Fraxel C02 Laser Treatments + 3 MTS (Microneedle Therapy System) + 3 Cyro Cell Treatments and after 1 week of treatment 3 Skin Rejuvenation Facials
But note that type of treatment package would happen over the course of 3 to 4 months.
FYI (Fraxel is a brand name of the first Fractional laser)
So compared to 870,000 those prices are expensive, but still cheaper than in the US, but you have to factor in your flight and accommodations. Are you coming to Korea for cosmetic medical treatment or for business/vacation?
There tends to be different pricing for foreigners at international clinics, usually because they need to offset their expenses for attracting and servicing foreign patients: staffing, licenses, insurance, taxes and marketing channels (multilingual websites & email).
But walking into a local Korean clinic, although attractive because of pricing, can have very different standards for customer service than an international clinic, and may present a language barrier. Renewme for instance treats foreigners like VIPs and will have someone there to communicate with you in English.
You might also want to checkout Dr Woo & Haan Skin Clinic. They have more of a general hospital feel & approach, and tend to be more pragmatic and transparent in their diagnosis and suggest treatments based on safety and what’s best for the patient. They are the official dermatology hospital for the US military base.

I think Renewme looks a lot cheaper – it’s a combination of lasers for two sessions whereas Leaders is only one session. 2 sessions at Leaders would be 5,000,000 or at least well over 3,000,000 in my opinion. And Excel V and gold laser toning is supposed to be really expensive, the equipment alone is worth more than my house and car and freaking everything put together 😛
