About Acupuncture For Dermatology
Skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis and acne affect nearly 20% of Americans. Most medical doctors have one standard treatment providing temporary relief for these dermatological conditions. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine, address the patient as a whole and treat the root causes instead of only symptoms. We are able to custom tailor treatments for each patient and change the treatment as needed as the skin heals.
How Long Does Treatment Take To Work?
You are itchy, uncomfortable and stressed. You don’t like how your skin looks. We understand that you want fast relief.
Patients commonly experience significant relief from itching and discomfort within two weeks and it just keeps getting better after that. The full course of treatment takes six months but some tougher cases take longer to heal.
During the first three months we focus on stopping the uncomfortable symptoms, clearing the skin of problems such as itching, pain, redness, dryness, heat, oozing, plaques, bumps, and dry, cracked skin.
During the second three months we focus on repairing and nourishing the skin and harmonizing the root cause of energetic disharmony to prevent flare-ups. In our experience, when patients skip out on this second phase of treatment, the likelihood of the skin disorder reappearing is very high.
Chinese medicine treats the root cause of disharmony in the body. Our method can usually completely clear skin problems within six months and they rarely reappear.
Chinese medicine offers safe and effective treatment for skin disorders.
Overuse of steroid creams cause the skin to permanently thin and degrade. Chinese medicine’s herbal topical ointments are safe and do not cause permanent damage.
Overuse of internal steroids damage the immune system. Chinese medicine strengthens the immune system.
Topical steroid cream treatment can cause severe withdrawal rashes. When a patient completes Chinese herbal treatment they do not experience withdrawal rashes.
We recommend that you see your medical doctor for see any rash that is not resolving, a rash associated with a fever, a changing or new mole, or any rash of concern or skin cancer.

“I had never had acupuncture before, but when my skin disease Pityriasis rosea lasted longer than 8 weeks, I decided to give Juliette Aiyana, L.Ac., Herbalist a try. I went in with red, itchy, swollen skin patches all over my body, and left three weeks later with my skin looking almost back to perfect. As a 22 year old female, in the summer time, this skin virus was a real downer and Juliette helped me gain my skin, and confidence back. Acupuncture works, and I will definitely be back“.
