Understanding Integrative Medicine in Dermatology
- Posted on: Jun 15 2017
There are many different types of medicine that we like to practice here at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa. One of the types of medicine that we practice here and that distinguishes us from other dermatological clinics is that we specialize in a treatment called Integrative Medicine in Dermatology. So, what is this type of dermatological treatment and why do we like to use it here? Read on to learn more.
What Is Integrative Medicine in Dermatology?
As the name insinuates, integrative medicine in dermatology involves the entire body. Specifically, when we focus on integrative medicine, we place an emphasis on all areas of a person’s life including a patient’s health, wellness, and disease, with a focus on body, mind, spirit, lifestyle and community. By focusing on every aspect of the person’s life, our doctors are better able to diagnose and treat skin related issues.
What Are the Benefits of Integrative Medicine in Dermatology?
Unlike other forms of dermatology that work to simply treat the issue, integrative medicine in dermatology looks to reverse the causal factors rather than just alleviating the symptoms. By using this practice, we are better able to heal our patients rather than simply treating them.
How is It Done?
Integrative Medicine in Dermatology is done using a variety of different treatments including those that are considered more traditional and those that are more homeopathic. Depending on your specific condition, our dermatologists will create a customized plan that is catered to your skin’s unique condition. A few areas that you can expect us to focus with all of our treatment plans is stress levels and nutrition plans. Depending on your lifestyle, we will evaluate what areas are worth changing.
Whether you are suffering from severe acne or hyperpigmentation, our doctors and staff at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa will work to get your skin looking and feeling like normal.
