Common skin disorders including psoriasis, eczema and acne are regularly treated with topical ointments, only providing temporary relief. But many dermatological conditions stem from internal imbalances. Your skin deserves individualized treatment that treats the root cause of your visible symptoms.
Have you ever noticed that after a night of eating fried or greasy foods, a new pimple will emerge? This is due to the imbalance of excess heat in the body, expressing itself through the skin. Maybe you have hormonal cystic acne that is due to stress or your menstrual cycle. With Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, we treat to reduce heat in the body, nourish fluids or balance hormone levels, whether it is by reducing stress or regulating your cycle.
This applies to many different dermatological conditions. Whether your skin has itchy patches, discoloration or dryness, together we will help relieve your symptoms and deep dive into the root of your issue to help prevent flare-ups.
Common Dermatological Skin disorders treated:
- Alopecia Areata
- Chronic Itching
- Eczema/Atopic Dermatitis
What to Expect
While results vary between every patient, many will see significant relief within the first few weeks of treatment. The focus will be on relieving the uncomfortable symptoms of your skin issues, in the beginning. From there, we will focus on harmonizing the root cause of your flare-ups, to nourish and repair your skin. By treating the root, this will help keep your skin healthy and prevent problems from reappearing.
Dermatological conditions are best treated with combined treatment of acupuncture and herbal therapy. During your first consultation, you will receive a full body acupuncture treatment and we will discuss the use of herbal medicine, for internal and/or external use, and the benefits that it may provide to you and your skin health.
