Cosmetic Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Though Cosmetic Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment is based on the principles of Oriental Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into targeted areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs. Specific points are chosen to balance, restore and improve the movement of energy in the body per your needs.
Thousands of years ago, the Chinese discovered that many meridians either begin or end on the face. As a practitioner of Cosmetic Acupuncture, I know how to specifically effect the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.
What Are the Effects?
Cosmetic Acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face, with results apparent after just a few treatments. Fine lines may be eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. Bags under the eyes can be reduced, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized. Other likely results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; increased collagen production, muscle tone; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improving of hormonal balance to help acne; reduction of stress evident in the face. In short, your most Luminous you!
