Dr Irene Prantalos | Registered Acupuncturist in Surrey Hills
Welcome to Salubre Skin Clinic.
If you have gone everywhere and feel like your health is still no better from when you started off, then you have someone who understands wholeheartedly how you feel. My teens years were spent going from doctor to doctor searching for the magic pill that would eventually end the nightmare of my psoriasis.
Unfortunately, I soon realised that I was looking for an unattainable goal; in fact I needed to understand and reconnect with my body to recognise why it was acting in such a severe way. You see, I was covered with psoriasis and it wasn’t until I tried Chinese Medicine that my hope in finally finding a solution presented itself.
It hasn’t been an easy road and we certainly never stop learning.
What I have found is that the body is constantly speaking to us through signs and symptoms and to simply ignore or suppress this connection with various medicines will only create more significant and uncomfortable symptoms and signs.
At Salubre Skin Clinic you have a number of services available based on my personal and clinical experience:
Fertility and IVF Support.
Initially when I opened my private practise I dreaded the thought of treating people with skin conditions. In fact, I relished the idea in helping women with specific women’s health issues such as endometriosis, menopause, hormonal imbalances, menstrual irregularities and the like. From that, many patients brought their partners in and our focus would turn to fertility. Despite whether the focus was on natural conception or IVF support, the approach was always improving the health of the individual to allow fertility to happen.

Skin Conditions: Treatments and Management.
It’s no surprise I love treating skin conditions; once I got over my fears which took 2 years into private practise. Once I felt more confident in my abilities to help others I just loved the transformations I saw and continue to see. The key is understanding auto-immune diseases and inflammation. When we can unlock the causes to diseases such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, and lupus, we can really assist the body to heal and recover so to reduce the frequency and severity of future flare ups.

This method of delivery key vitamins straight into the blood stream is very effective and can assist with speeding up the healing process. I have had many vitamin C infusions and Glutathione infusions and although it is not the primary form of treatment it can certainly help with clearing inflammation quickly so to allow the primary treatment (herbal medicine and acupuncture) to positively impact the body.
Natural Skin Care: The Amalgamation between Peptide Technology and Traditional Herbal Medicine.
The single most frustrating issue with using natural medicine to resolve skin issues is the time it takes to heal the skin. The reason is mostly due to the simple duration of the disease and the complexities that lie within it. Let me tell you, the quicker the treatment works the more concerned you should be. I have used some cortisone creams that resolved my severe psoriasis within days. I was beyond elated for a very short period of time because what followed what pure chaos. The incredibly intense flare up that resulted when I stopped the cortisone cream is why I believe it covered my entire body. To reverse this with natural medicine meant I needed an incredible amount of patience which when it comes to skin diseases this is a challenge in itself.
The importance of formulating Eczema and Psoriasis Topical Relief, Acne Skin Solutions, Sensitive Skin Care and Anti-Ageing Skin Rejuvenation via skincare utilising Traditional Chinese Medicine meant patients would be more patient to allow their body to respond in the time it needed to heal form the inside out.
