& Intense Pulse Light
Did you know that your skin is one of the largest organs in the body and it reflects your overall health? Your digestion, environment, allergies, immune system function, hormones, metabolism, nutrition, lifestyle, psychological and emotional states all affect your skin. Because your skin is influenced by how your whole person functions, it is important to consider all aspects of your health and well-being when managing a skin condition. Naturopathic Dermatology offers this approach to skin health.
Dr. Whittington works with patients to determine food sensitivities, toxin overload, hormone imbalances and immune system dysfunction that can contribute to unwanted skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, rashes and itchy skin.
Along with supporting your skin’s health from the inside, Dr. Whittington utilizes Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) technology to affect change from the outside.
IPL treatments provide a non-invasive and safe cosmetic treatment to improve the look and feel of your skin. Skin rejuvenation with IPL removes and repairs:
• Pigmented spots: freckles, liver spots, age spots and sun damage.
• Broken capillaries on the nose and cheeks.
• Signs of premature aging: uneven skin texture, fine lines
and wrinkles, enlarged pores.
• Redness of Rosacea and other red discoloration of face.
• Acne papules.
• Psoriatic lesions.
• Unwanted facial, underarm and bikini hair.
