Dr. Shum saw the importance of post surgery recovery and envisioned a comprehensive line of skin care products to aid not only in surgery, but also in every day skin protection. Beginning in 1992, a thorough study on the effects of skin care products was conducted. After three years of extensive research, a line of specially formulated skin care products is introduced in 1995 - Doctor Shum's Choice (DSC). DSC is designed to treat and pamper different skin types and Dr. Shum is the clinical consultant for this special line of products.
Due to various reasons such as aging, hormonal imbalance, work stress, lack of sleep, diet imbalance, sun damage, the skin has to go through many unfavorable conditions. Often times it will become dull and other problems may also surface. There are 4 basic concerns in skin care: Acne, Pigmentation, Aging and Sensitive Skin. Dr. Shum has dedicated tremendous energy in addressing each concern with the most up-to-date technology available, combining medical knowledge and therapeutics with application to modern skin care regimens. This is indeed the new paradigm for the 21st century.
