Natural Skin Care

 

Clear, radiant skin is possible…naturally.

At Be Well Natural Medicine, we dig beyond a superficial fix to help reveal the deeper health messages your body wants you to hear—because we believe the skin provides key insights about your body's overall health.

When skin issues are healed from the inside out, your entire body benefits.

Using a functional medicine approach and state of the art labs, we help patients stop spinning their wheels with frustrating, sometimes painful breakouts. What’s more? Because your skincare plan will include a personalized eating plan, your skin will do more than glow…your whole body will feel more energized and vibrant!

If you’ve visited dermatologist after dermatologist only to end up disappointed—with expensive products that don’t really work or have irritating side effects, you’ll love our gentle approach that helps heal your skin’s inflammation without harsh chemicals!

Or call us at (612) 440-7710.

Here’s how it works:

SKIN & HEALTH ASSESSMENT

We want to understand your skin—so we’ll take a thorough evaluation of your skin health and overall health (past and present). We’ll also visit about your current diet, skin care regimen, and any medications or supplements you are currently taking or have previously tried.


LAB TESTING

Your Be Well doctor will discuss whether or not she recommends any lab testing. Lab testing may be beneficial to pinpoint the root cause(s) of your skin concerns. Common lab tests we recommend:

 

* FOOD INTOLERANCE TESTING: to help determine the ideal diet for your skin. This test looks for specific foods that might be triggering inflammation and breakouts.

* HORMONE TESTING: to look for excess or deficiency of key hormones, such as testosterone and DHEA, that can make your skin more susceptible to breakouts or cystic acne.

* STOOL TESTING: to assess overall digestive function and reveal any gastrointestinal imbalances that may be contributing to problem skin, such as intestinal permeability (aka “leaky gut”), parasitic infection, yeast/candida overgrowth, lack of adequate healthy flora and more.

 

YOUR PERSONALIZED SKINCARE PLAN

The doctor will work with you to create a Skin Care Plan tailored to your body.

Your plan will include nutritional recommendations and instructions about which natural medicines might be the most beneficial for your skin and body type. The doctor may also provide insights about your topical skin care regimen and/or make a referral to one of a few select holistic-minded estheticians in the area for expert topical advice and treatments to compliment the internal work that we do.


FOLLOW UP CARE

Follow-up visits are typically every 4 to 8 weeks until your new and healthier complexion has reached the surface. During these visits your doctor will to monitor your progress, review any newly completed labs, and determine if any changes to your Skin Care Plan are needed for optimal results.
