Cosmetic acupuncture, popularly referred to as an acupuncture facial, is a natural, safe and effective method to restore skin health for a glowing, smooth and younger-looking complexion. Unlike invasive pharmaceutical procedures such as botox, cosmetic acupuncture is nontoxic and has little to no negative side effects. We address skin rejuvenation from the inside out, using a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, topical beauty products, nutritional support, and lifestyle education. Cosmetic Acupuncture has many benefits:
Eliminates fine lines
Diminishes deep set wrinkles
Improves color of skin by increasing blood circulation
Reduces puffiness of the face and eyes
Reduces or eliminates bags and dark circles under the eyes
Lifts drooping eyelids
Reduces or eliminates double chin
Balances dry, oily, or combination skin
Reduces or eliminates acne
Lifts skin and decreases sagging
Many patients feel or see results after their first treatment but the most noticeable changes occur around the 7th acupuncture session, and follow-up treatments are necessary to fully clear and maintain skin health. For this reason, we provide a 2-month program that includes:
Individualized Attention and Instruction
16 Acupuncture Treatments
Customized Chinese Herbal Formulas
Natural, Non-Toxic and Effective Skin Care Line
Natural and Effective Vitamins and Supplements
Nutritional Support, Information & Education
Your first visit is a 2-hour consultation with a comprehensive exam, skin care counseling, and the first acupuncture treatment. After sharing your areas of concern with your practitioner, they will examine your skin and use extremely fine acupuncture needles to address points on the face, neck, arms, and legs to help ground, balance, and relax the body. Needles remain in place for about 40 minutes.
You will also receive an herbal blend, customized for your skin, to take daily for energy, relaxation, and skin rejuvenation. We introduce you to nontoxic, paraben-free cleaners, toners, masks, and moisturizers for your skin type, and you will be counseled in diet adjustment, vitamins and lifestyle recommendations. Follow-up treatments take about one hour, and occur twice weekly for eight weeks. Once-a-month maintenance is recommended, with another full series every 4 years.
The program can yield optimal results, but outcome may vary from person to person depending on individual health, lifestyle habits, and compliance to the program. We recommend avoiding this procedure during pregnancy. We also recommend contacting us if you have a serious or contagious health condition, are actively receiving another cosmetic procedure, or have other potential concerns about receiving cosmetic acupuncture.
