 What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.


What are the benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture may take 5-10 years off your face. It helps to eliminate fine lines and makes the deeper lines look softer. It can also help to minimize puffy eyes, double chin, sagging skin, and dropping eyelids.

 Other benefits include:

  •  Relaxes muscle tone
  • Increases circulation
  •  Increases collagen production
  • Tightens the pores, and brightens the eyes
  • Nourshes the skin, giving you a healthy complexion with a natural glow

Who would benefit from this procedure?
Anyone who wants to delay the process of aging and wants to look and feel younger.

Can I do Cosmetic Acupucture if I had botox?
Yes, Cosmetic Acupuncture will maintain the effectiveness of botox, so it will save you a couple of injections per year.


What is the course of treatment?
The course of the treatment is between 10-12 sessions. This will be done 1-3 times a week for best results. Each individual will respond different to the treatment depending on their age and lifestyle. Visible results will be noticable after 6 -7 sessions. Maintenance maybe needed once every month.

Clients are adviced that Cosmetic Acupuncture may cause mild brusing to some patients after treatment and may last for a few days.
