Cosmetic acupuncture is a natural way to rejuvenate the face. It improves skin integrity by increasing blood circulation and oxygen to the tissue. This stimulates fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin thus thickening and plumping the skin.
Benefits are the following:
-Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
- Natural glow and younger looking skin
-Improves hyperpigmentation and brightens skin
-Relaxes muscles of the face for less atrophy and drooping skin
-Tightens and increases toned appearance to cheeks, jaw, neck
-Stimulates lymphatic drainage of the face, reduces facial edema
-Decreases redness and inflammation in the skin
During this treatment, the acupuncturist will perform a brief assessment (approx. 10-15 min.) on the first visit to target your needs and afterwards use techniques such as facial cups, guashas, massage and small facial acupuncture needles to complete the treatment. Every treatment plan is individualized based on your comfort level and goals.
-Wait 6-8 weeks after Botox injections or facial surgery
-If you have conjunctivitis (pink eye) or open sores on the face, please wait until it has fully healed
