Denver Acupuncture Acne Treatment
There’s no better treatment for adult acne than acupuncture. As opposed to mainstream topical lotions, acupuncture’s acne treatment works at a much deeper level, to get to the root of the problem. Most acne comes from imbalances having to do with heat and dampness (pus). Treating acne with store bought or prescription topicals is fighting the symptoms, not the root. The Denver Acupuncture acne treatment resolves the underlying issues, bringing longer lasting results and even cures for acne.
You don’t have to take our word for it. A systematic review of 43 trials in English and Chinese language studies found that Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and Chinese herbs was a highly effective treatment for acne, with no side effects. Cupping, one of the acne treatment techniques we use, was even found to be significantly better than pharmaceutical medications at curing patients of their breakouts.
How does the Denver Acupuncture acne treatment work? Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin, sterile needles into the skin and is a typically painless way to signal the brain to make changes inside the body. As part of our treatment, we will often make dietary recommendations, and in some cases will prescribe Chinese herbs. Treatment plans are always custom made to the patient and will reflect the needs of each patient.
The benefits of the Denver Acupuncture acne treatment extend beyond a patient’s pimples, and usually long after treatment has discontinued. Regular acne creams simply suppress the symptoms, failing to address the underlying imbalance in the body responsible for the acne. In addition, they trigger unwanted side effects like irritation and dry skin. In contrast, acupuncture sends signals to strengthen (as in digestion or immunity), reduce (inflammation, known as heat) and move stagnant energy. Acupuncture works to make the whole body healthy and in the process resolves acne from the inside out. At the same time it helps improve your digestion, sleep, stress levels, and energy.
