Acne Treatment

naturopathic acne treatment

At Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care we have a multitude of treatments and means of treating some of the most common skin ailments. The difference at our clinic is that we try to find the triggers or the cause(s) of your skin ailments, remove them, and support the natural healing process to help you get improved skin. At our clinic, everything we suggest is clinical grade, simple to use, and sometimes flat out common sense.

Acne is a common debilitating disorder that effects millions of Canadians today. From simple little breakouts to severe full body cystic acne, we have what you need to aid the resolution of your skin issues. The physicians at Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care will assess your skin type, hear and list your concerns, analyze your skin, and only then begin treatment. We truly strive to remove the cause of your acne. Some common acne causing factors include:

  • Poor diet (food allergies)
  • Hormone imbalances (testosterone and estrogen)
  • Poor pH of the skin
  • Bacteria, fungus, yeast infections
  • Insufficent nutrition
  • Overuse of makeup
  • Use of alcohol cleansers
  • Over cleaning the skin
  • Medication induced
  • Poor health status
  • Environmental chemicals (laundry detergents etc.)

Typically our physican begins with a simple diet and skin care regiment. If diet changes are too difficult, we offer laboratory assessments to confirm our diagnosis, then we treat accordingly. Most people with common acne require few therapies, a few laboratory investigations and a little patience as results sometimes require some time. We very much enjoy treating acne at Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care, and we typically see remarkable and long lasting results.

Once we stop the progression of the acne, then we can treat the skin with professional skincare products, medications (if necessary), injections to fill in the scar tissue (if necessary) and exfoliate the skin with microdermabrasion to complete the treatment.
