Acne affects 650 million people in the world; 20% of which have moderate to severe acne. Our Oakville Naturopathic Doctors want to help you heal your skin by using evidenced-based medicine and natural acne treatments.
A study from the Beijing Daxing Hospital suggests that acupuncture for acne provides new hope for patients suffering from chronic acne. Their randomized controlled study determined that acupuncture outperformed the use of metronidazole to treat acne vulgaris. They divided 200 patients into two groups. One group received an acupuncture treatment with specific points every other day for 10 treatments. The other used metronidazole, an antibiotic commonly used to treat acne, for the course of two months. After the course of treatments, individuals from the groups were accessed to determine how effective the treatments were at improving skin lesions.
At Bronte Wellness Boutique in Oakville, we believe in practicing evidence-based medicine when helping our patients attain their health goals. Our experienced Naturopathic Doctors spend time assessing the underlying cause of your skin issues and then apply individualized alternative treatments.
