Acupuncture at Dermatology Associates with Dr. Barnett

Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice from China that can be very effective for many conditions.  The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes the ability of acupuncture and traditional Oriental medicine to treat over 200 common health conditions.  These include diseases and disorders for which acupuncture therapy has been tested in controlled clinical trials.

Acupuncture can be helpful for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.  Stimulation of acupuncture points can increase the production of endorphins, restore hormonal balance and activate the immune system.  Acupuncture can also be helpful to control itching.

Diet and Skin

You are what you eat.  When we eat good quality foods that are clean and high in nutrients our bodies use these vitamins and minerals to carry out various functions in the body.  But when our bodies are encumbered with chemicals and other synthetic by-products in food, our bodies must work that much harder to eliminate them out of our system.

Cortisol is a stress hormone that naturally peaks in the morning and plays a role in regulating blood sugar.  What we eat for breakfast can impact the way our bodies respond to cortisol. By regulating cortisol, we can help our bodies maintain sustained energy, optimize metabolism and support proper immune function.

Procedure

What is the procedure?
The Photofacial BBL and Forever Young BBL treatment is a broadband light that is attracted to the dark pigmentation of brown discoloration on the skin. This light draws it towards the surface of the skin and eventually out altogether. When treating redness the laser setting is attracted to the hemoglobin and heats up the tiny vessels to the point where they collapse and the blood retreats. This provides a clearer, smoother complexion which will smooth out your skin tone and improve texture.
