About Acne

Acne is also known as pimples, zits and acne vulgaris. The main reason acne is so persistent despite treatments or meds, is because conventional treatments focus on the superficial skin surface only.

According to Traditional Eastern Medicine theory, malignant acne eruptions are due to disruptions and stagnations in the Skin-Qi, which causes heat and toxins to accumulate so acne germs can proliferate. Some people are born with a weaker skin immune strength, and are thus more prone to skin infections.

Acne may also be caused by a chronic digestive tract issue, like constipation or indigestion, or blood stagnation that causes the accumulation of unnecessary toxins in the system. By improving and removing the fundamental cause of acne, we work to prevent future flare-ups.

Treating Acne

Our comprehensive acne program includes the following treatments:

  1. Skin treatment focused on the extraction of acne comedones and elimination of the acne germ from hair follicles.
  2. Skin rejuvenation treatment for damaged skin and scars. Our Acne program is similar to IPL laser or chemical peeling, but is more effective and less invasive. We apply the MTS (Micro-Needling Stimulation) technique to treat acne and acne scars.
  3. Personalized herbal medication and acupuncture treatments to strengthen the Skin-Qi and stop acne from proliferating. Changing dietary and exercise habits are also important, and our Reset Detox Diet can also help improve your skin and health.
