For Acne vulgaris (acne or pimples) in youth and adults, acupuncture treats both inflammatory types (papules, pustules, cysts) and Non-inflammatory types (blackheads, whiteheads)

"As soon as we notice that certain types of events 'like' to cluster together at certain times, we begin to understand the Chinese, whose theories of medicine, philosophy, and even building are based on a 'science' of meaningful coincidences."

Are you suffering from Cystic Acne?

Youth and adults who have Acne vulgaris (acne or pimples) in both inflammatory types (papules, pustules, cysts) or Non-inflammatory types (blackheads, whiteheads) and  Rosacea can benefit from acupuncture for quick and lasting relief.

Acne vulgaris (acne) is the formation of comedones, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts due to obstruction and inflammation of hair follicles and the sebaceous gland.

Acne is a common disorder in youths and is becoming more common in older individuals (up to age 40), due to new dietary and lifestyle habits that consist of fatty foods, and nutritional and environmental toxins. Individuals who are more prone to be affected include youths experiencing hormonal fluctuations, women who have irregular menstruation, and people who suffer from excessive stress due to work, family, or other emotional factors.

Cosmetic acupuncture can help regain skin tone for all age and colour of skin

Cosmetic acupuncture can help regain skin tone for all age and colour of skin.

Commonly seen acne types in our clinic include inflammatory types (papules, pustules, cysts) and non-inflammatory types (blackheads, whiteheads). Modern research has found that acne closely relates to hormonal imbalances - acne in young women is most often associated with menstrual cycles. Overproduction of testosterone can cause pore enlargement and production of sebaceous glands, leading to acne all over the body. Acne can also be caused by improper hygiene, leading to the excessive growth of acne-causing bacteria. Regrettably, people do not consider acne as a severe disorder, with most people carrying the viewpoint that it will naturally dissipate after age 25. However, if not treated properly, acne may leave behind scarring [physically and emotionally], leading to a lifetime of self-esteem issues.
