Most of our clients say that before finding us that they have ‘tried everything’. We regularly work with skin conditions that have either not responded to standard pharmaceutical therapy or relapsed or worsened after starting/stopping medication.
Conditions we specialize in:
- Peri-oral & Peri-orbital
- Roaccutane skin withdrawal
- Oral Contraception skin withdrawal
- Antibiotic skin withdrawal
Before your consultation, you will be sent a comprehensive online intake form. We ask that you send this back to us 24 hours prior to your appointment so that our naturopath can review it before you come in and get a jump start on your case.
The consultation process involves an in-depth case history across all areas connected to skin dysfunction. Our naturopath may perform some physical examinations if relevant. There is plenty of time to ask her questions about any queries you may have about your skin condition. At the end of your first consult, our naturopath will let you know exactly what is driving your specific skin condition and discuss any relevant pathology testing that is required so that a customised protocol can be created for you.
A few days after your Initial Consultation, she will email you a report that covers:
- Summary of the session
- Causative factors of your skin condition
- Lifestyle advice
- Supplementation and dosage
- Private pathology testing – which test, how to order, cost etc.
- Plan for your clear skin journey
We recommend also booking in for a 15-minute Skin Analysis so that we can support your skin concerns externally with therapeutic, customized skin care whilst you are working on the internal causes.
We find that this helps to:
- speed up wound healing
- reduce inflammation & redness
- repair the barrier and ‘seal’ the skin
- reduce breakouts/flare-up’s
- avoid scarring/pigmentation
Our Naturopathic Skin Therapists would love to assist you with this.
Follow up Session – Clear Skin Diet
We recommend a 45 minute return Naturopathy session 1-2 weeks after your Initial Consultation. If we are awaiting test results, they usually take 3-4 weeks as the labs we use are overseas.
We have developed a clear skin eating system that will let you know exactly what to eat (and what not to eat!) and will answer any questions regarding food. Handouts and a customised plan are supplied to make this easy to follow.
We want you to feel really confident with the foods that will assist in healing your skin, gut and hormones.
