Let’s face it (pun intended), your face is the first thing people see when they meet you and whether we like it or not, we are judged by the way we look. Wanting to improve your appearance is not about vanity. It is not about trying to become the next top model. It’s about taking who YOU are to the next level. Taking care of your skin can improve your self-esteem and confidence in many areas of your life.
Whether you are a teenager experiencing acne, an adult with acne scars and pigmentation or a menopausal woman wanting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dry skin, I am here for you! Every treatment with me is personalized to address your unique needs.
As an acupuncturist and herbalist, my skincare philosophy is simple; be patient, be gentle and be consistent. In most cases, there’s no need for harsh chemicals and procedures because there’s a lot we can do with regular treatments and a good home care regimen. The key is you have to be patient with the process because it takes time to heal your skin. Rome wasn’t built in a day, right? Many cases of stubborn acne can be resolved in 3 - 6 months with proper care. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be minimized within just a few treatments. And yes, we can do something about those stubborn acne scars and pigmentation!
Your skin is a reflection of your internal environment. It is the largest organ and it is the ONLY organ on the outside of your body. So much of what is happening inside your body shows up on your skin. In other words, your skin gives us clues of any health conditions that you might have.
I use Chinese herbal medicine to address your constitution and any internal imbalances. I also prescribe supplements like certain vitamins and probiotics to address gut health and deficiencies. This holistic approach to healing the skin yields the best results.
