Acne is a skin disorder where sebaceous glands become overactive and an excess of sebum, a waxy lipid necessary for healthy skin, is produced. The excess sebum my lead to non-inflammatory acne called comedones or inflammatory acne called pustules, papules or nodules. The primary factors causing acne are

  1. poor diet,
  2. inadequate rest, and
  3. a stressful lifestyle.

This can lead to

  1. poor digestion,
  2. poor circulation, and
  3. inadequate lymphatic drainage.

Poorly nourished skin with excessive cellular metabolic waste accumulation in the skin may ultimately lead to acne. Other factors leading to acne are genetic factors, hormones, topical applications including cosmetics and environmental toxins. Acne & Skin Treatments w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy is one of the best ways to address all of the above for clear, healthy skin.

Acupuncture is both safe and effective for the treatment of acne

Patients are given diet and nutrition advice along with methods to avoid stress.

Testimonials for Acne & Skin Treatments w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy

Acne: Carolyn, Age 22 “Dr. Barrett is an amazing doctor! I have been going to see him for almost 3 years, he has helped me with my acne problem! Before Dr. Barrett I was unaware that acupuncture helped treat acne. I have tried every over the counter product imaginable and have found ZERO results up until he started treating me. I can now say my acne has subsided and his herbal pills were more helpful than anything sold in stores. I now know how to control my acne as well as other problems like digestion. He is very knowledgeable and although I have not always followed his regimen due to my own laziness he has never given up and has always encouraged me to keep going! He has an amazing staff, all the girls are friendly and he is genuinely a great person! Would highly recommend him to those in need!”
