Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture is an effective, healthy, non-surgical face lift treatment that reduces signs of aging without plastic and cosmetic surgery, Botox ® or Restylane ® therapies.

Cosmetic acupuncture , also known as acupuncture face-lift or facial rejuvenation is a form of acupuncture that is applied  to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years. The empresses of ancient China knew to use the powers of Chinese medicine to enhance their beauty and consequently the acupuncture face-lift has its origin in the treatments for the empresses and the royal concubines thousands of years ago. Currently, new variations and techniques have evolved as cosmetic acupuncture becomes more popular in the western world.

How is it done?

During cosmetic acupuncture treatments, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points on your face and body. Facial needles work on building collagen, reducing wrinkles and improving skin tone while body acupuncture works on  supporting your digestive health, balancing your nervous system, addressing issues of menopause and any other complaint. Thus, with each cosmetic acupuncture treatment your entire body gets needed support that results not only in toned skin and reduced wrinkles but also in a healthy and glowing facial complexion.

Does cosmetic acupuncture hurt?

Cosmetic acupuncture needles are so fine that they cause little or no pain sensation. Some points might be more sensitive than others therefore various techniques are used to minimize such sensations. Most clients find the procedure extremely relaxing.

How many cosmetic acupuncture treatments do I need?

Generally, the course of the treatment is 10-12 sessions. Individual maintenance treatments are recommended several times throughout the year.
