What is cosmetic acupuncture?

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", It is more than a cosmetic procedure.  It rejuvenates and revitalizes the whole body to look and feel younger. 

 

The Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment is based on the principles of Oriental Medicine. It involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs along channels or meridians of energy called Qi.  Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to the individual's needs.

What are the effects?

Cosmetic Acupuncture may erase the appearance of years from the face.  Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished.  Bags around the neck and eyes can be firmed, sagging reduced, and puffiness eliminated.

Other likely results:  moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face.  Increased collagen production, muscle tone, and dermal contraction; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improving of hormonal balance to help acne; reduction of stress evident in the face.


Who would benefit from Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Anyone concerned with looking and feeling young and slowing down the aging process.


Cosmetic Acupuncture is suitable for those with deep wrinkles, fine lines, bags around the eyes, puffiness,  large pores, dry skin or acne.
 

What is the course of treatment?

For best results, 12 treatments, performed weekly or twice a week.  The effects become most noticeable and lasting after the seventh session.  Each person responds differently, depending on their condition prior to treatment and their lifestyle.

Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for few years.  It is often recommended to supplement the Cosmetic Acupuncture program with facial self-massage and/or Acupressure, Facial Exercises, herbal and nutritional supplements, custom Aromatherapy blends for skin, and a healthy diet

 

Does it really make a difference?

Many sources indicate that acupuncture has been used for almost 5,000 years to treat a wide range of conditions.  Having proven itself with literally billions of people, Acupuncture has survived the test of time.  The effectiveness of Acupuncture is due to its direct manipulation of the body's energy system -- balancing, removing blockages or adding energy.

A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion and overall rejuvenation.
