Acne Treatments

GET CLEAR NOW!
For acne treatment I will give you a thorough skin analysis to determine which kind of acne you have and what treatment plan to follow. There a 7 types of acne. Acne needs to be addressed both ways: internal through appropriate nutrition and external the right treatment for your type of acne. If you want to get results you need to address both. I will put you on a program for both: foods to avoid and take, supplements and a good external daily skin care regimen. A treatment plan for external healing will be either bi-monthly facials or monthly for at least 3 minimum, microdermabrasion treatments or peels including extractions.

GUT CHECK Why good internal health equals good skin by Alex CasperoRoughly
80% of the body's components for immunity are located in the gut, so it's no surprise that what's living in there has a big impact on overall health, including skin health. For example, one 2008 study involving over 13,000 adolescents showed that those with acne were also more likely to experience gatrointestinal symptoms such as constipation, bloating, halitosis, and acid reflux. Essentially, science now points us inward to treat the outward. Heal the gut, heal the skin.
A healthy gut has two main factors: variety in bacterial strands and balance in favor of good bacteria to bad. When that ration is flipped - when bad bacteria outweigh the the good - there is likely to be an increase in gut permeability and overall inflammation. As we know, acne and other skin disorders are inflammatory conditions. Therefore, if you calm down the gastrointestinal tract, you'll reduce inflammation.
The state of your gut bacteria has a lot to do with diet-one heavy in processed foods and sugar and low in fiber doesn't feed healthy gut flora and can tip the scales toward the bad. Additionally, overuse of antibiotics makes things worse, as they wipe out both good and bad bacteria, leaving a vacuum for bad pathogens to grow. By some accounts, a one week course of antibiotics can remove tow-thirds of gut bacteria, which can take months to replace. The good news is changing your diet ( and perhaps adding a probiotic supplement) has shown to be essential in healing the gut and the skin.
Since good bacteria need food to grow, adding in plenty of fiber-rich foods is one of the easiest changes to make. Think vegetables, potatoes, brown rice, and legumes. When gut bacteria feed on the staples, they produce short-chain fatty acids, which improve gut health and can play a part in decreasing inflammation. Fermented foods can also play a role: items such as raw sauerkraut, kombucha, yogurt, and kimchi can nourish the bacteria in your gut in the same way fiber-rich foods do. Of course, there are numerous factors that contribute to skin conditions, acne included, and many people need more than just a diet tune-up. However, the gut-skin connection is a significant piece of the puzzle. REGULAR CUSTOMIZED FACIALS CAN MAKE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENT COMBINED WITH GOOD NUTRITION AND HEALTHY LIFE STYLE.

TIPS ON HEALING STRESSED SKIN:
​Molly Kimball, RD, nutrition manager of the Ochsner Fitness Center in New Orleans
When you are under stress, it's important to limit added sugars, white carbs, fried foods, and alcohol. These foods can be incredibly inflammatory, which is a problem because eczema, acne, and rosacea are all exacerbated by inflammation. Plus, many of these foods can cause blood sugar highs and lows, which interfere with your body's ability to deal with stress and make it harder to repair skin flare-ups. Instead, drink a lot of water and eat fruits, vegetables, and fish that high in omega 3 fatty acids, which fight inflammation and hydrate the skin from within. Also, add probiotics-found in foods like Greek yogurt, kombucha, and cultured cottage cheese-because stress can lead to imbalances in gut bacteria, which can cause inflammation that can take a toll on your skin. And exercise daily: Besides boosting circulation, which helps shuttle more nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, regular, low-intensity exercise helps you decrease cortisol levels.
THE PSYCHOLOGIST
Rick Fried, MD, PhD, clinical psychologist, dermatologist, and clinical director of Yardley Dermatology Associates in Yardley Pennsylvania
These skin conditions are capricious, and that unpredictability can lead to more emotional and physiological reactivity. It becomes a reciprocal vcious cycle. If your skin gets redder and more sensitive, you can get stressed about what other people think, and the body
s adrenaline response makes it self-perpetuating. What you want to do is lower yur level of lstress below the threshold that causes fllare-ups of these skin contitions. You can do this with behavioral strategies, such as exercise, yoga, tai chi, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing, or mindfulness meditation- all these roads lead to decreased reactivity of your stress rewponse and immune system. Stress management is very much like dating: It's a matter of individual taste. You don't have to be forced into something that doesn't click with you physiologically and mentally. It also helps to do self talk. Put flare-ups in perspective by comparting them with the worst thing that could happen.Happy to help.Facials with extractions always help when your skin is upset.
