Integrative Dermatology

As the most visible and largest organ, our skin displays all signs of health and vibrancy, both real and perceived, thus conferring a significant psychological burden on those suffering from cutaneous infections. Therefore, clinicians are charged with the crucial task of caring for a person’s mental and physical health to accomplish their therapeutic goals. 


We at Nature of Skin Dermatology use scientifically-proven holistic & plant-based dermatology therapies to address the root cause of your skin condition and rejuvenate it instead of just treating the symptoms. Our integrative dermatologists treat your entire body’s ability to heal naturally. 


Let’s replace the cycle of despair with a cycle of care and unveil the true you that’s been hidden for a long while beneath the layers of worry and discomfort.


What is Integrative Dermatology?

Integrative dermatology is a holistic approach to skin conditions and skincare that combines conventional medical practices with a healing approach. It identifies the various factors impacting skin health, including nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle, and environmental factors. Integrative dermatology aims to address total skin wellness as the prime approach in the skin care industry, which includes in-depth skin examination and advanced practices from traditional medicines such as mind-body medicine, supplements, vitamins, and diet. 


It emphasizes lifestyle, nutrition, environmental factors, hormonal imbalances, stress, and how this can benefit your skin. The aim is to look at the individual as a whole and not only on skin condition. Sometimes, our skin condition doesn’t get healthy with conventional therapies, and sometimes, we can experience unacceptable side effects from traditional pharmaceuticals. 


Some patients don’t like exposure to pharmaceuticals. At Nature of Skin Dermatology, our specialists focus on education, prevention, and lifestyle management through integrative dermatology practices to help improve outcomes for our patients. We don’t lean solely on topical steroids and oral antibiotics, which can lead to unwanted side effects.

When To Schedule An Appointment for Integrative Dermatology?

If you’re persistently struggling with skin problems that haven’t responded to conventional dermatologist treatments or are seeking a more holistic approach, our integrative dermatologists can help. We go beyond topical solutions and embrace a whole-body approach, combining evidence based natural treatments with cutting-edge science to harmonize your overall health. 


Integrative Dermatology is the best approach for people with skin resistant to traditional treatments or suffering from chronic conditions like psoriasis or eczema, persistent acne, and aging skin. Our integrative dermatologists may suggest particular nutritional supplements or dietary changes after examining your skin to improve your skin’s health or recommend acupuncture to aid with stress management. 


We recommend integrative dermatology for patients who prefer a more natural skincare remedy and are interested in changing their environment, nutrition, and lifestyle for healthier and glowing skin and those who want to combine evidence-based alternatives with traditional therapies. An appointment with our integrative dermatologists can address a variety of skin diseases, including but not limited to eczema, acne, psoriasis, hormonal skin changes, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, and skin rashes. We also offer cosmetic consultations to address skin laxity and wrinkles.

Explore the Holistic Path to Skin Wellness

Nature of Skin Dermatology is committed to delivering top-notch healthcare experience beyond treating symptoms only. We’re concerned about your entire health narrative, as achieving healthier skin is intrinsically linked to your overall health and well-being. Are you curious about what an integrative dermatology visit includes? Let us walk you through our entire process.

Step 1: History Intake and Consultation

Your journey toward holistic skin health begins when you walk through our doors. Our dermatologists go the extra mile during the initial consultation to get to know you beyond the surface. We dig deeper than traditional skincare approaches that only focus on symptomatic treatment. Our thorough history intake process touches on every aspect of your life that might be affecting your skin, including:


  • Your Medical History
  • Dietary habits
  • Stress levels
  • Exercise routines
  • Cosmetic and Skincare product usage


During this time, we encourage our patients to have open discussions, ensuring that they feel heard and understood. We believe emotional and psychological factors are crucial for your skin’s well-being. At the end of your first visit, you will receive a plan of care to guide your subsequent follow up visits and a preliminary treatment plan you can start while awaiting test results. Testing is not always necessary or recommended and will be tailored to your individual condition. 

Step 2: Testing and Lab Work-up

To supplement the information we’ve collected from the patient during our initial consultation, we may suggest diagnostic tests, which could include:


  • Detailed blood tests
  • Hormonal assays
  • Genetic testing
  • Nutritional deficiency screenings
  • Gut testing


These tests provide valuable insights into a person’s unique biochemical makeup, allowing us to tailor an effective treatment plan.

Step 3: Diagnosis and treatment plan creation

After compiling and analyzing all the gathered data, our dermatologists will present you with a comprehensive diagnosis. Unlike conventional treatments, which usually employ a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment, our plan is evident, factoring in both your lifestyle and clinical information. 


Your personalized treatment plan may comprise one or more of the following:


  • Oral prescriptions
  • Topical medications 
  • Dietary recommendations
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Natural therapies like acupuncture or herbal formulations
  • Lifestyle modifications, such as stress management techniques


At the Nature of Skin Dermatology, we are committed to collaboration and transparency, which means we’ll discuss each option’s benefits and side effects so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment. 

Step 4: Follow-up Visits to Ensure Improvement and Resolution of Skin Condition

Your skin treatment doesn’t end after your first visit. Healing is a slow process. We schedule follow-up visits, if needed, to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes to your treatment plan. During these visits, we assess the following:


  • Treatment efficacy through evident skin improvements
  • Potential allergic reactions or side effects
  • Your satisfaction and comfort with the treatment
  • Adjustment of the treatment plan


Follow-ups allow our patients to reassess their skin condition and evaluate the success of the integrative strategy implemented. They are also the time to celebrate your skin’s health and adjust the course to ensure you are on the right path to achieving healthy, radiant skin. 


If you’re tired of short-term fixes and superficial solutions and willing to indulge in comprehensive, holistic treatment, Nature of Skin Dermatology’s Integrative Dermatology Services in Austin, Texas, are here to guide you every step. 


Our specialists are committed to helping you look your best and feel your best from the inside out. Don’t let your skin woes hold you back, and step into a world where science meets nature for truly balanced skincare.
