Naturopathic Dermatology

safe and effective natural treatments

The essence of Naturopathic Medicine is to treat the root cause of any condition. It emphasizes safe, effective treatment of acute and chronic diseases using botanical medicine, acupuncture, nutrition, supplementation, and more. Whether your chief complaint is aging, acne & blemishes, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, cellulite, weight loss, or any other health condition, a thorough naturopathic assessment is performed and a personalized treatment protocol is prescribed to optimize your health and achieve your goals.

In addition, Dr. Stacey Shillington, N.D. has combined the core naturopathic medicinal principles with mesotherapy and cosmetic acupuncture to combat aging skin – reducing and eliminating wrinkles, acne, cellulite, and unwanted fat deposits. The effectiveness and longevity of all the treatments are enhanced by a comprehensive individualized naturopathic protocol.

Naturopathic procedures are covered by most extended health care insurance plans.

Common Naturopathic Treatments

Acupuncture brings the body into a state of balance by working with its energy and flow. It is based on the Taoist belief that the body is an integrated whole, consisting of the mind, body, and spirit. Each of these three parts is believed to work together, affecting the other’s ability to heal. For this reason, acupuncture is aimed at encouraging the whole body to promote natural healing and improve functioning.

Acupuncture is part of 10,000-year-old traditional Chinese medicine, a complete medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness for thousands of years. At Rosedale Dermatology Centre, this system of healing is practiced by Dr. Stacey Shillington ND, a licensed Naturopathic Doctor.

In addition to therapeutic acupuncture, Dr. Shillington offers Cosmetic Acupunture, an incredible facial acupuncture treatment that can revitalize and rejuvenate the skin.

More Info

Historically, Cosmetic Acupuncture dates back thousands of years where it was once used as an exclusive beauty treatment for Chinese Empresses.

This virtually painless treatment involves the insertion of fine needles in the face, scalp and ears as well as the hands and feet. The needles increase muscle tone and promote collagen production in the skin thereby effectively eliminating fine lines and wrinkles while considerably diminishing larger more pervasive wrinkles. The procedure is excellent for bags under the eyes and for those experiencing sagging skin and jowls.

The treatment is administered by Dr. Stacey Shillington ND, and a course of therapy consists of 10–15 treatments administered 1-2 times per week and results typically last 2-5 years when monthly maintenance sessions are employed.

What is Electroporation?

Electroporation is a system that transports customized natural medicines right into the dermal layer of the skin. This treatment is used for skin revitalization, pigmentation, acne, anti-aging and hair loss. All natural and pain free!

What is Mesotherapy?

Developed in 1952, Mesotherapy targets problem areas with micro-injections of medicines to the dermal layer of the skin. This technique can successfully treat many skin conditions and chronic pain. Electroporation works in a similar manner to mesotherapy; it successfully delivers medicines into the dermal layer of the skin without any injections, pain or downtime.

Dr. Stacey Shillington ND customizes electroporation treatments for each patient. All-natural, effective medicines are used to address anti-aging, skin dehydration, pigmentation, hair loss and acne.
