Acupuncture demonstrates clinical effectiveness in the treatment of and may reduce or resolve Acne

Acne is a common, and for many people embarrassing, chronic skin disease that results in breakouts of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads and cysts on certain areas of the body. This can cause pain, inflammation, uneven complexion, and for some people; a drop in self-esteem.

Typical treatment for Acne involves over the counter topical creams, usually containing Benzoyl Peroxide; an antiseptic, antibiotics usually of the tetracycline family and/or in severe cases surgery or laser treatments. All of which can lead to unwanted adverse effects from mild irritation through to permanent scarring, all with no guarantee the condition will resolve or not recur.

ACUPUNCTURE & CHINESE MEDICINE IS CLINICALLY AND SCIENTIFICALLY OBSERVED TO REDUCE OR RESOLVE ACNE IN A MAJORITY OF CASES

Acne Treatment BrisbaneIn a 2007 controlled-trial observational study, Acupuncture combined with ancillary Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) methods showed a 50% cure rate and a 92.9% reduction rate in patients with moderate Acne after 3 sessions compared against the control group who received oral tetracycline (antibiotic) and topically applied antiseptic to the affected areas which showed a significantly lower 17.6% cure rate and a 76.5% reduction rate. After six months the Acupuncture group had a significantly lower incidence of recurrence or deterioration compared against pharmaceutical treatment.

 

HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP?

Inflammation and bacterial infection play a key role in the development and perpetuation of Acne. It is important to keep this in mind in the treatment of the condition. By boosting the immune system and regulating inflammatory markers within the body Acupuncture and TCM may greatly reduce the development, severity and frequency of Acne symptoms.

  • Acupuncture promotes changes in the immune system to assist your body in fighting bacterial infection.
  • Acupuncture can reduce inflammation and is well known for being effective in pain management.
  • A combination of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formulae will support your system in eliminating toxins associated with Acne and assist in preventing recurrence.
