     Did our first LAVIV treatment today. All went well. Patient experienced slight discomfort along with some bruising and swelling. She will receive 2 more sessions at monthly intervals. We plan to post a video on our website so you can check it out.

Chocolate and Acne

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Roses and romantic dinners can only be topped by a box of chocolates.  While everyone loves candy, chocolate has the most notoriety for causing acne breakouts.  There have been numerous scientific studies that show that acne is not worsened by acne; only a handful have implicated that diet may play a role.

Typically, the amount of chocolate in a person’s diet does not play a role in the amount of acne developed; however, there are some individuals who are sensitive.  If you notice after consuming a particular ingredient that your complexion worsens, it is prudent to limit that in your diet.
