Acne Treatment

Acne is something that has affected us all at some point in our lives. Although a seemingly mild medical situation, severe acne, especially of the face, leaves individuals feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable in their own skin.

Acne starts when oil and dead skin cells clog up your pores.  Pores are home to your hair follicles, so, excepting the palms of your hands, soles of your feet, and a few other small areas, your body is covered in pores.  Pores are also the opening where your body’s natural oil is released to the surface of the skin (this oil is called sebum and is produced in the sebaceous glands).  This is a useful system and keeps your skin nicely moisturized—as long as it’s functioning properly.  Problems arise when stress, medications, or hormonal imbalances prompt the sebaceous glands to overproduce sebum.  Excess oil mixes with dead skin cells and clogs up the works, bacteria enter the picture, and there we have the telltale whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts we all recognize as acne.

People try all sorts of creams and washes and spend lots of money on advertised cures with mixed results. Chinese medicine treats acne through herbal medicine, acupuncture, diet suggestions and exercise routines.

While Chinese medicine can be beneficial for acne treatment, Dr. Li's TCM Clinic also utilises the latest technology to help to reduce the appearance of acne and scarring. Our light-needle or laser acupuncture technology is pain free, drug free and 100% natural.
