Cosmetic Acupuncture 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.
During each treatment, medical acupuncture is used, meaning that body needles are placed to work on stress levels, pain, insomnia or anything else that is currently bothering the patient. This helps immensely in the outcome of radiant skin as the body is all connected. Cosmetic acupuncture is currently all the rage among Hollywood’s elite, and its popularity is understandable. It promises a more youthful appearance with no downtime, no anesthesia, no harmful chemicals or toxins injected and no going under the knife.
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.

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
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A series of 10-15 visits, with maintenance treatments typically lasts between 2-5 years.
Is It Covered By My Health Insurance?
