BLENDING CONVENTIONAL AND FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE TO TREAT CHRONIC SKIN CONDITIONS, PREVENT SKIN CANCERS, AND REJUVENATE THE SKIN
At Vitality Integrative Skin Clinic, we specialize in taking an individualized approach to the treatment of acne. Integrative and functional medicine techniques utilized in acne treatment often include lifestyle and nutrition changes and a clean skincare routine. Prescription medications are prescribed depending on the needs and goals of the individual.
Changes in our appearance are a normal part of the aging process. With time, the skin loses its elasticity, which results in lines and wrinkles. The facial roundness and contours of youth are replaced with a loss of volume . For those looking for a more conventional method of facial rejuvenation, we are pleased to offer Botox and the Juvederm line of dermal fillers.
Integrative Dermatology is a treatment therapy that combines Complementary Medicine with Dermatology for the treatment of dermatological conditions. Our providers have additional training in Functional Medicine, which is essential to our mission of providing both conventional and functional medicine to treat chronic skin conditions, naturally.
Are you looking for a natural way to improve the appearance of your skin or restore hair loss? PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and is an innovative technology for the rejuvenation of both skin and hair follicles. PRP is used in a variety of ways. Three services that we offer in our clinic include PRP Facelift, PRP Facial, and PRP Hair Rejuvenation.
“As an integrative dermatology provider, I interpret the skin as a reflection of internal health.”

Rashes, wrinkles, pigmentations, acne, or skin cancer are all signs that the body is out of balance. Utilizing a whole-body approach, I individualize a plan of care by taking into account genetics and all body systems. This allows me to have a comprehensive understanding of both your internal and external health, which is critical to identifying the root cause of your concern, so that we may achieve optimal results.
Our process involves the blending of both conventional and functional medicine to treat chronic skin conditions, prevent skin cancers, and rejuvenate the skin. The result is healthier and more vibrant skin that reflects your beauty within.
Because your internal and external health is the priority, I start by collecting a detailed medical history and complete a whole-body symptom review. I perform a physical exam, and if needed, order state-of-the-art testing to gain a more comprehensive understanding of your internal health.
As part of your treatment program, we will discuss necessary lifestyle modifications and prescribe a nutrition plan. Often, I will recommend herbal and botanical supplements to assist the body in rebalancing. Prescription medications can be prescribed if needed. Based on your unique needs and goals, a “clean” skincare program will be recommended.

“It was so nice to have someone listen to me and let me ask all my questions. My psoriasis is now under control and I am actually able to wear shorts and sleeveless shirts again. My arthritis is so much better too. I owe that to her!”
I have seen many other health care professionals in the past, but Erin was the only one that actually helped me with my acne. I have sent my husband and daughter to her too with other skin issues and they are very happy.”
“Erin is the only person that really listened to me. She spent a lot of time trying to figure out why my eczema kept flaring and now I have been without a rash for months. I’m so happy I finally found her. “
