Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Health Treatments

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe and effective strategy for addressing anti-aging.  This gentle treatment is suitable for anyone from ages 30-85, male or female.

Benefits:

  • Reduces signs of aging; wrinkles, fine lines, puffy eyes, dark circles
  • Brightens face, treats acne, dryness or oiliness
  • Tightens pores, raises droopy eyelids
  • Can be used to lift breasts as well
  • Is safe, sterile and gentle with no recovery time

How does it work?

  • Increases blood flow, oxygenation, collagen and elastin production
  • Tones facial muscles, lifts tissue

Systemic actions:

  • Balances flow of Qi or energy, relaxes, enhances body's immunity, water balance, hormone balance and elimination and regulation by tapping into Traditional Chinese energy meridians

Does it hurt?

  • Some people experience a mild discomfort in some points, which resolves in several minutes and is considered ideal because it signifies connection with the Qi in the body.  Insertion of some of the points does yield a fine pricking sensation, which resolves in seconds.
  • All acupuncture needles are disposable(single use) surgical grade stainless steel

Additional health benefits are usually experienced with the program since the energy flow in the whole body is treated and corrected

Treatment structure:

  • Relaxation with needles for 30-40 minutes.
  • Facial care recommendations are given
  • Monthly masks/peels are recommended to enhance treatments
  • Supplementation, exercise and nutritional recommendations must be adhered to for best results.

Compared to traditional facelift surgery, this effective treatment is a fraction of the cost.  This naturopathic service may be covered by private insurance.
