Cosmetic Acupuncture


What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Also known as Acupuncture Facelift or Acupuncture Facial, is a non-surgical approach to healthy skin, wrinkle reduction, and facial and neck re-sculpting.  It is effective, safe, holistic, and natural.  It reduces the signs of aging by balancing your body’s energy, re-educating and toning the underlying facial muscles and strengthening your collagen network.  As a result, both your body and your skin become healthier and revitalized, and you will feel energized and your face will have a radiant healthy glow.

Is there a down time?

There is no down time and results can be seen as early as the first treatment.  Dramatically visible, long lasting changes generally occur during a series of sessions. A course of twelve treatments followed by monthly maintenance is recommended.

What are the benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture:

– Erases fine lines

– Reduces deeper lines including frown lines and crow’s feet

– Lifts, tones and re-educate facial muscles

– Reduces dark circles and puffiness

– Improves complexion

– Helps to reduce double chin

– Clears or reduces age spots

– Keeps acne prone skin under control

– Hydrates dry skin, balances oily skin

– Improves blood/lymph circulation

– Stimulate growth of healthy collagen and elastin

– Rejuvenation of the whole body, while giving the skin a dewy, radiant appearance

How does it work?

According to the latest studies by Dr. Howard, Murad, one of the America’s top dermatologists, aging skin, wrinkles, sagging, puffy and baggy eyes, thin and dry skin are caused by free radical damage.

These free radicals attack and destroy the walls of your skin cells.  You can compare your skin cells to a water balloon and the free radicals act like a knife that pokes holes into it. The balloon will then leak and your cells become dehydrated and deflated, because they have lost their integrity and no longer contain all the vital fluid and nutrients.

Facial acupuncture helps restore the integrity of the cells. This happens because the acupuncture boosts collagen and elastin production by stimulating the nervous, hormonal and circulatory systems.

What can I expect in a treatment? 

During your first consultation, your acupuncturist will conduct a comprehensive review of your overall health, as well as the condition of your skin.  Then, she will discuss treatment goals and treatment strategies with the patient.  The patient will also be given advice on dietary and life style changes if deem necessary.

Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments are very relaxing.  First, small fine needles are gently inserted into the body to help reduce the daily stress and harmonize your energy. This is followed by facial acupuncture targeting problem areas. The needles will be retained for a short period of time.  After the needles are removed, you will be pampered with a facial massage with acupressure.  The last step consists of application of toner and lotion. Cosmetic acupuncture not only consists of facial rejuvenation but also overall body rejuvenation.  The wrinkles disappear and your health improves at the same time!

Is There Anything I Can Do To Prepare For My Treatment?

If you take numerous medications, bring a list to your practitioner. If you have had recent x-rays or blood work you may also want to bring these results. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Women should not wear one-piece dresses or tight stockings. You will be asked to remove your jewelry, so leave it home if you are at all concerned about losing something precious. If you are excessively tired, hungry, or full, your treatment may be altered. Drink plenty of water prior to coming in for your acupuncture session.  Avoid alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine before and after your treatment.

Is There Anything I Can Do During My Treatment To Enhance My Experience?

This is your time to relax and heal, so enjoy it! Acupuncture is an extremely pleasurable experience. If you have questions about your treatment, feel free to ask them before you begin. On rare occasions, one may experience light-headed or dizziness. If this occurs, the needles can be removed or adjusted to make you feel more comfortable.

How many treatments are needed?

A course of treatment consists of 12 sessions, twice a week for 6 consecutive weeks.  Depending on the skin condition and the age of the patient, 1 to 3 courses of treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results. Maintenance treatments once every two weeks or once a month are recommended for maximum benefits.  Remember that the effects of acupuncture are cumulative: the more treatments you get, the healthier your skin becomes and the better the results you get because you can prevent future wrinkles!

How long does the effect last? 

Typically, results of one course of treatment last from1 to 3 years.  Maintenance treatments help them last even longer.  Cosmetic Acupuncture diminishes the fine lines already existing on the skin and prevents the skin from aging.  This is a valuable investment in your body, your image, your self-confidence and your beauty.
Usually recommend 10 session and over depend of patient age and skin type
