Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe and drug-free treatment for facial rejuvenation. Fine needles are placed at acupuncture points on the face, scalp and neck to stimulate Qi or energy. Points on other parts of the body are also used to address the root imbalance contributing to your symptoms.

Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include:

  • Improved facial color and complexion
  • Increased muscle tone and collagen production
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction of drooping eyelids and double chins
  • Tightening of pores
  • Reduction of acne
  • Reduction in signs of aging in general
Sessions last approximately 1.5 hours. A series of  10-12 treatments is recommended for optimal and long-lasting results. You may see changes as soon as the first treatment, but treatments are cumulative (each session builds on the previous one), so it is important not to miss any of the initial treatments.  Maintenance sessions are scheduled as necessary after the initial series.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is not recommended if you currently have any of the following:

  • Pregnancy
  • High Blood Pressure  or Coronary Disease
  • Migraines
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Seizures
  • Epliepsy
  • Hepatitis
  • Herpes Outbreak
  • Bleeding or Bruising problems or a pacemaker
  • Skin disorders such as poison ivy, hives or eczema
  • Laser treatment within the past 21 days

Also, please inform us if you have received any type of cosmetic fillers or injections such as Botox.
