Cosmetic acupuncture is a gentle yet effective anti-aging treatment without any down time. Cosmetic acupuncture builds collagen, improves muscle tone, increases circulation, decreases facial puffiness and improves the overall complexion. Patients notice a healthier look to their skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are minimized or erased. The skin becomes moisturized, pores become smaller, dark circles are reduced, eyebrows lift, chin and jaw become more firm.
Conditions that a series of cosmetic acupuncture addresses:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- facial puffiness
- dark circles
- sagging eyelids and eyebrows
- facial sagging
Hair thin, sterile, stainless steel disposable needles are gently inserted into the face, neck and scalp. Body points are added to address the underlying cause of the patient’s concerns. Treatments may include massage and facial cupping after needle removal in order to further improve blood flow and collagen production. Treatments last 1-1.5 hours. A series of 6-12 treatments, weekly or bi-weekly, are highly recommended as the results are cumulative. After 5-6 treatments most patients can see a noticeable change to their face. After 12 treatments wrinkles and fine lines start to fill in with a noticeable lift to the face. Cosmetic acupuncture is a full body treatment which promotes deep relaxation. Patients experience an overall improvement in their health with a more revitalized youthful appearance.
