Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture

Vital health is a combination of our physical well-being and the soulful radiance that shines from the inside out.  Because our face is the one part of us that is seldom covered, it is constantly exposed to the elements and reveals the stresses of our daily lives.  Aged skin wrinkles and sags as the result of these external influences and also from declining collagen and elastin production at the cellular level. Facial cosmetic acupuncture boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin and brings vibrant “ki” to the face. Our skin is the largest organ in the body and it externally reflects the state of our internal health.  It is the only organ that we have to take care of from both the outside and the inside.  In Oriental Medicine the state of physical health, emotions and spirit are reflected on the skin, especially the skin of the face.  Today, surgical procedures, various modes of injectable therapy, and “non-invasive” procedures are being used to create a youthful appearance.  These only address the outside, can be expensive, and can carry significant risks. Oriental Medicine aims to balance the whole person so that beauty reflects both outer and inner harmony.

The Benefits:

  • Improvement in the fine lines of the face and a diminishing effect on deeper wrinkles.
  • Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in jowls.
  • Reduction in puffiness due to improved metabolism
  • Moisturized, softer skin and a more even skin tone.

Women and men have been utilizing natural beauty treatments for thousands of years.  Cosmetic improves blood circulation to the face and promotes collagen production for increased skin tone and elasticity. Since this treatment is based in Oriental Medicine, your acupuncturist also uses point selections on the body to complete the balancing of energy.  This results in an overall rejuvenating effect of body, mind, and spirit.  Your acupuncturist will also evaluate diet, lifestyle, and skin care.  An initial treatment will leave you feeling and looking rejuvenated.  For optimal results, 10 sessions over 5 weeks complete the full course of treatments.  We suggest a maintenance routine of one treatment per 2-3 months, or book a treatment to look and feel your best before a special event.
