What Is It?
Also known as Facial Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation, Cosmetic Acupuncture is an
ancient beauty secret and a non-toxic way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles from the
face. The treatment can also minimize dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, and
aids in the tightening of the jowls, that tend to sag as we age. Most importantly,
Cosmetic Acupuncture provides overall rejuvenation, allowing the whole body to feel
less stressed and more energized.
How Does It Work?
Cosmetic Acupuncture creates stimulation to facial tissue by increasing the circulation
of blood flow and producing more collagen, resulting in less wrinkles and sagging. The
treatment involves inserting tiny, hair-like needles into the face and body. In Chinese
medicine, it is impossible to treat just one small area of the body, i.e. the face. By having
a whole-system work-up and using acupuncture to balance your hormones, stress,
digestion, pain, sleep and immune system as well, your skin will be allowed to glow.
Cosmetic Acupuncture achieves beauty from the inside out.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A general course of 10 - 15 treatments is recommended. Usually after a few treatments a
patient will notice changes. Maintenance treatments are suggested every 1-6 months,
depending on the patient.
Does It Hurt?
Most patients report feeling no pain at all to just a small pinch. Facial needles are
exceptionally thin. They are about the width of a thread and feel like a horse hair or a
thin bristle on a brush. To put their size into perspective, about 40 acupuncture needles
can fit into one hypodermic injection needle.
Are There Side Effects?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is natural and uses no fillers or harsh chemicals so the only side
effect that may be noticed is the slight risk of bruising. Most of the time this does not
occur. Typically, the patient is left feeling relaxed, fresh and feeling good with a
strengthened immune system. There is no downtime, no puffiness, no swelling, no
drugs, no allergic skin reactions and no injections.
Why Choose Acupuncture Over Other Procedures?
Long-term radiant health of your entire body is the most important reason to choose
this type of treatment. Cosmetic Acupuncture is not a "band-aid" procedure focusing
just on external appearances. Internal systems and imbalances are addressed and
treated. With Cosmetic Acupuncture, facial beauty and youthful glow are not possible
without working toward a balanced and healthy body.
How Long Does It Last?
A series of 10-15 visits, with maintenance treatments typically lasts between 2-5 years.
Can I Have Cosmetic Acupuncture If I've Had Other Procedures?
Many patients choose to use Cosmetic Acupuncture to resolve fine to medium lines and
produce the overall glow and radiant health this treatment provides. Sometimes a
patient will choose injections, fillers or surgery to reach the deeper lines that may not be
completely erased with Cosmetic Acupuncture. In cases like these, Cosmetic
Acupuncture treatments will help to prolong the life of the procedure and assist in
recovery from face-lift scarring or numbness.
