While acne is an external condition, sometimes the root cause can be more than skin deep. At AM, our approach to acne management and treatment is an integrative one – combining the best of both traditional medicine and holistic options.
Diet, stress, hormones and more can all play a part in contributing to acne and other skin conditions. Our provider Susan Menard is qualified not only as a dermatologic nurse practitioner but also as a lifestyle medicine coach. This experience helps her build individualized plans that include not only topical treatment, but a close examination of diet and supplementation to address what is happening on the surface of the skin
Programs may include some or all of the following:
- In-office skin care treatments and peels
- Home care products
- Prescription topical products or antibiotics
- Vitamins and supplements
- Diet modifications
- Hormone testing
Our approach can work for a spectrum of patients, ages and needs, and the entire AM team including Dr. Welch and Aestheticians works together to provide continued support and management of acne.
