NATURAL ACNE TREATMENT
We don't just help to manage your acne,
we get to the root cause - inside & out
Are you using hormonal birth control pills, medication or antibiotics to help mask your acne symptoms?
Whilst these approaches can clear up your breakouts in the short term, they typically work as a band-aid approach, with skin issues coming back ten fold when you stop taking them. As Naturopaths, we can help get to the cause.
Facial acne can include closed comedones (whiteheads), open comedones (blackheads), papules, pustules and cystic acne (hard, sore & sometimes red lumps under the skin).
Additionally, back acne (a.k.a. - "Bacne") as similar sebaceous glands to your face reside there.
Our Brisbane naturopaths want you to love the skin you're in!
Unfortunately, there isn't a 'one size fits all' approach with acne treatment or a magic wand we can wave over pimples and cysts, however, we can help you get to the underlying cause(s) of your skin congestion.
What caused you to get acne in the first place? Is it hormonal? If so, what caused your hormones to get out of whack? Stress? Lymphatic congestion? Skin care products & make-up exacerbating it?
That's where we put on our detective hats and devise personalised treatments that are just for you.
Internally, we look at:
Liver & detoxification pathways
Gut health & nutrition
Stress levels & lifestyle
Blood sugar levels/insulin resistance... among others
For example, to get an accurate look at what your hormones are doing when it comes to acne, we may suggest hormonal testing via an external pathology testing company, which gives us a comprehensive report on your hormones.
Based on your results & together with the extensive health history we take at our initial consult, our Brisbane Naturopaths can help to balance your hormones and address the root cause of the imbalance so you can have clear, healthy and happy skin from the inside out!
Externally, we use Dermaviduals, which is a prescriptive skin care line that is custom blended and individually tailored for each skin type and condition. Dermaviduals can help to correct & restore the stratum corneum (outer skin layer) as well as the lipid barrier, therefore allowing the skin to regenerate, while preventing future skin problems.
Our skin solution treatments don't happen over night but we work hard with you to get the results you deserve and will be proud of.
This isn't a quick fix. If you're serious about getting your skin to where you would love it to be, we ask that you're prepared to commit to working with us. Great skin doesn't happen by chance & certainly won't be an overnight process. For some it's sooner than others, as everyone is unique. You can't race towards the finish line when it's amazing, long term healthy skin you're chasing!
