Can Suboxone treatment give you better skin?
This may seem like a strange claim, to say that Suboxone can have any effect on making your skin look more beautiful. Yet, there is some truth to medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction helping with the appearance of your face and overall skin tone and complexion. In my experience, patients who come in for the first time, still actively using opioids often have poor overall skin appearance. wrinkles and other signs of aging are more prominent than they should be. Color, complexion, and tone do not look very good at all.
The wonders of a month of treatment for your skin.
During the first month of treatment, there is a remarkable transformation in skin quality. Sometimes, the change is so dramatic, I have trouble recognizing a patient returning for followup. Skin tone and complexion improve in every way. The overall result is the appearance of beauty and youthfulness. No amount of skincare products or spa treatments can match the effect of getting clean and overcoming opioid addiction. Patients continuing treatment even appear to have a glow of health and vitality about them.
Can Suboxone help you to lose weight and have better body tone?
While Suboxone has no direct effect on body composition, it does help many people to quit abusing their bodies. It also helps to improve decision making. I have seen many patients resume healthy eating and a solid exercise program shortly after getting clean by starting Suboxone. In fact, my patients often give me the best in health and fitness advice. During the course of treatment, I have seen incredible improvements in patients’ health, weight, and fitness.
Does Suboxone give you whiter, brighter and better-looking teeth?
Again, with improved decision-making, clearer thinking and all of the improvements that come with quitting opioids, you will be able to improve many areas of your life. I have seen patients who’s teeth have gone from yellow and decayed to beautiful and white again. In some cases, this was the result of extensive dental work. With getting back in control of your own life, you will find that you have the will and resources to take better care of your teeth and get needed dental work done.
Does Suboxone help with brain fog?
Here is an area where Suboxone shines and has a more direct effect. While Suboxone is technically an opioid, it works very differently from other opioids. Because of the unique way in which it works on the opioid receptor, it does not cause the horrible brain fog and fatigue that goes along with heavy opioid use. Patients who come in for the first time complain of brain fog and have trouble thinking clearly. In a short time, their thinking clears up and they regain full control of their mental faculties. So, medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction using Suboxone is very effective in clearing up brain fog.
