Top Ten Results of Cosmetic Acupuncture
Although each face is different, it is common that after a series of treatments, patients often appear 5-10 years younger. They remark that their others notice and most of all they are happy with the results.
As we age, collagen and elastin found in our skin start to cake and break down. Cosmetic Acupuncture stimulates production of these vital proteins that slow down as we age. The needles work their magic to bring life back to your face, neck and scalp.
The increased circulation translates into better skin tone, fewer fine lines, and even some lift around sagging jowls and baggy eyes.
It’s not about how others view us, it’s about how you feel about yourself! We will treat any specified gender and any age. It’s all about helping you glow, whatever that means to you.
You won’t need to worry about injectable side effects, scarring, pharmaceutical toxicity, surgical risks or a botched procedure.
You may as well grab the added value of gaining all the extra health benefits acupuncture. Your face is just a reflex zone of whatever else is happening in your body. We will not only work on your face in a cosmetic acupuncture session but the rest of your body will receive needles too. A full health intake will be needed to make sure you not only get the facial benefits, but you likely will see other nagging health symptoms get better such as improved sleep, improved digestion, less headaches and decreased PMS or menopause symptoms.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is incredible at treating skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
The effects of treatment can often last years. Once you complete a solid base of treatments (that vary from person to person but usually around 5-10 weekly sessions) you can get away with coming in less often for maintenance tune-ups. We don’t want you to be a slave to any treatment. Our goal is that you receive enough care that you feel confident and comfortable enough to start spacing them out on your own terms.
Cosmetic acupuncture is relaxing! As with all our acupuncture treatments, the treatment stimulates the “feel good” opiates found in the brain. Endorphins, serotonin and cortisol have all been found to be produced via acupuncture; the chemicals you need to achieve mental and emotional well being. You will leave feeling calm, grounded and recharged.

Frequently Asked Questions
Although acupuncture should never be painful, there are more needles involved with cosmetic acupuncture. If you are scared/nervous of needles the treatment probably isn’t the best choice for you. Although it’s not painful, the needles can sometimes feel pinching and uncomfortable.

Although everyone’s face responds to treatment at a different pace, we aim for you to see results after your first appointment. Reaching your aesthetic goals will usually require a series of approximately 10 sessions. Having said that, we work with patients on setting up a treatment frequency and pace that they can manage. Some patients see through a series of treatments while others find that they find benefit from once in while “tune-ups”. Although we will recommend a treatment frequency protocol that is ideal, no pressure, do what works best for your schedule and budget.
