How does Acupuncture work for Skin Disorders?

Dermatology Times Acupuncture aids in easing pain stemming from dermatologic conditions.

Acupuncture can help skin disorders in a few ways.

First, it can improve blood flow to area that are involved and increase delivery of nutrients to help the skin heal.

Second, acupuncture improves the function or balance of immune cells to resolve the inflammation that causes the skin disorders.

Third, acupuncture helps to reduce a person's reactivity to the environment.

Finally, acupuncture helps to strengthen the skin itself, making it less susceptible to any inflammation in the first place. 

Acupuncture has been reported to be beneficial for the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Acne
  • Alopecia
  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Erythema Pruritis
  • Hives
  • Pityriasis
  • Pruritis
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Systemic Lupus
  • Urticaria

     In acupuncture treatment of dermal diseases, both the filiform needle and the cutaneous needle are powerful tools. In the treatment of refractory dermal diseases, cutaneous needle acupuncture is usually followed by cupping to intensify the therapeutic effect.

    Is Chinese Medicine effective for treating Skin Disorders?

    Yes. In fact, dermatology is a recognized specialty in traditional Chinese Medicine. Treatments for skin disorders have been described as early as 1100-221 BC in China. Throughout the United States today, many patients are frustrated with stubborn skin conditions that are not satisfactorily treated using Western medications, or they find that results do not last consistently. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs offer a natural solution to improving skin conditions.
