Although acupuncture is normally associated with helping relieve physical pain or internal maladies, there are also acupuncture treatments that are specifically designed to treat acne. Even more specifically, we have been using acupuncture and Chinese medicine treat adult acne, especially in those who have not seen success with normal acne treatments (such as cleansers, spot creams, and prescription medicines).

Our treatment designed for adult acne may sound enticing, but does it really work? In order to treat acne with acupuncture, patients are normally required to make some changes to their diets, come in for weekly acupuncture appointments, and take Chinese herbs as a medicinal supplement.

Acupuncture helps the body correct abnormalities from within, while the herbs serve to reinforce and strengthen the body’s natural processes. This is why many people who have been through an acupuncture treatment cycle believe that it works—they see results from the combination of acupuncture, herbs, and lifestyle changes.

Acupuncture for acne may not work for everyone at the same result; it really just depends on how your body responds to the treatment and the herbs. Depending on how bad your acne is, you may be required to come in more than once a week until the acne is under control. Once your acne calms down, having acupuncture once a month is usually sufficient for maintaining your healthier, clearer skin.
