Acne on the face is a major concern for people of all ages and genders. There are various causes, including genetic factors, irregular meals, stress, and spicy food. However, in traditional Chinese medicine, acne is viewed as the body’s attempt to maintain homeostasis by expelling heat to keep a constant temperature.

When the balance of yin and yang in the body’s organs is disrupted, heat is generated. The lungs, liver, stomach, and spleen are particularly affected. This internal heat increases the temperature of the blood, which tends to rise and manifest as purulent acne on the upper body and face.

Dr. Kim, a renowned expert in acne treatment, is often referred to as the skin doctor of traditional Chinese medicine. He treats organ imbalances through acupuncture and carefully balanced herbal medicine, helping to restore beautiful skin.
