“I found Dr. Fu’s practice by a stroke of luck when I saw it listed close to my work office in the Anthem Blue Cross insurance directory. I decided to try acupuncture to help clear my complexion and balance hormones as my dermatologist and physician weren’t achieving much results from conventional western methods. Scheduling an appointment was easy and accommodated my schedule well. I was happy to hear that I would meet with Dr. Fu for a no cost in-depth consultation first and receive a treatment plan before having to commit to any treatment–and it made all the difference. Never before has a physician sat down with me for almost an hour, going over every pertinent detail of my health, habits, sleep, diet, stress, work and family history to gain a comprehensive view of my complete health. Never before have I ever felt a physician was truly listening to me and truly wanted to help. After my consultation, he presented two options for treatment and together we found a course that worked for me, my budget, and health outlook.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, your body is composed of invisible highways (meridians), that become blocked. Through acupuncture, the meridians are unblocked and balance is restored to the body. Acne and other imperfections come from these blockages. Once the underlying issue, the meridians are unblocked, the symptoms go away.
When we target the root of the issue instead of applying topical treatments, it reduces acne for the long term. With no side effects.
And not only that, it also works to promote the overall health of the body.
And it’s not just for acne, by targeting the acne’s underlying problem, acupuncture will reduce inflammation, redness, and even out skin tone. Encouraging the skin to heal and diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Think about it, if you have a better vitality, sleep, your hormones are regulated, etc, you’re going to feel much better and it will be evident in your face, skin, and quality of your hair.
The Western Medicine hypothesis, suggested by University of California doctors, for why acupuncture for skin care is so effective is that “neuromodulation of the immune system in mediating the pathogeneses of inflammatory and infectious skin conditions, such as acne, dermatitis, urticaria, and HPV. Studies on rats have shown decreased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines— including tumor necrosis factor-a, interleukin-1b, and interleukin-6—after stimulation with acupuncture.”
Multiple dermatology studies have shown that patients given acupuncture receive statistically significant improvements. In three studies on plaque of the edema of the skin, also know as a wheal/skin flare, patient given acupuncture performed significantly better. Their wheal/skin flares were significantly diminished. In a randomized controlled trial, acupuncture was more effective for clearing wheal than oral antihistamines.
