Natural acne treatment with acupuncture boost to strengthen the skin immune system for the prevention of clogged pores which is the leading cause of whiteheads, pustules, and pimples. Benefits also includes inflammation reduction, evenness of skin tone and promotion of skin recovery from acne scar.

The acne condition due to genetic and environmental factors but will be even more aggravated from other factors:

  • Adolescent Acne ( between 11-19 years old)
    The most common cause of adolescent acne is due to genetic factors with increasing or fluctuation of hormones that can trigger acne or make existing acne worse due to higher levels of male hormones and able to prompt the oil glands in your skin to get bigger and boost production of an oily substance. This extra oil, combined with the shedding skin cells that line your hair follicles, eventually blocks the pores leads to acne.
  • Acne in adults (between 23 – 40 years old)
    Recently the number of adult acne patients gradually increased.
  • Excessive stress leads to increase of testosterone in the body and stimulates production of excessive skin’s oil and eventually into acne prone skin.
  • Alcohol abuse, Excessive smoking & Not enough sleep
  • Developing allergy to cosmetic products or dusty environment
  • Pregnant women with acne
    The most common adult skin disorder is acne, and for women, it can be related to hormonal fluctuation associated with the menstrual cycle, stress and pregnancy.
  • Male-pattern acne
    For most men, genetically, they have more harsh and thicker skin than women and their body produces more male hormones that can easily trigger acne and, if they missed the right time to receive treatment until papules size are over 4mm, it will be spread faster on the face and might become cystic acne, eventually leaving deeper and larger acne scars on the face. Those scars are hard to eliminate and, therefore, we recommend male patients to treat acne its early stages.
  • Less pain and less scar

  • Personalized acne treatment

Grace D. Hur, L.Ac. choose personalized acne treatment programs which will be individually evaluated with different steps of treatment process depending on the skin conditions.

Grace acne treatment is classified into six levels of acne (1=mild, 6=severe) and individual acne severity was evaluated based on the Korean Acne Grading System (KAGS). Grades 4 to 6 are more severe acne conditions than the others that we call “cystic acne” and it requires more professional acne care because the skin cells that belong to cystic acne lose their function of renewing themselves and possibly be contagious to other pores.

  • Use an oil-free foundation, sun-screen with no more than SPF30 and non-comedogenic moisturizer
  • When washing your face, avoid scrubbing material, strongly rubbing the acne area
  • Avoid touching or squeezing the pustules
  • Avoid sauna and swim
  • Avoid alcohol and greasy food or spicy food at late night
  • Drink water at least eight glasses every day
  • Try deep sleep between 11PM to 3AM for repairing skin
