Cosmetic Acupuncture

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the state of the physical health, emotions, and spirit is reflected on the skin of the face. Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. The superficial needling techniques increases Qi and blood flow to the face which helps the production of collagen and elastin. Since this technique is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture points on the body are also needled to complete the balancing of internal organ functions. This results in an overall rejuvenating effect of body, mind and spirit. Diet, lifestyle and skin care are also evaluated and addressed.

 

We begin with a consultation to determine your overall health and if you qualify for the procedure. There are a few contraindications to getting this treatment (smoking, botox, and tanning to name a few). We will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs. It is recommended to receive treatments two times a week for five weeks or once a week for ten weeks for best results.
