What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging while simultaneously revitalizing the whole body. It is a holistic approach that will leave you looking younger and feeling re-energized.
Who would benefit from it?
Anyone who is interested in restoring their skin to its youthful glow naturally may consider it. The procedure is also suited for people concerned about deep wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, puffiness, large pores, dry skin and acne.
What is the course of treatment?
10 treatments are recommended. Usually results are visible around the 6-7 treatments, but the full 10-week session is recommended for lasting results. After the 10 treatments, a maintenance program including less frequent but continued cosmetic acupuncture sessions, self-facial massage, diet, exercise and lifestyle counseling are recommended.
Treatments are scheduled twice a week for 5 weeks. If you need results faster, ask about other possible schedules.
That's just a 10 hours commitment to looking younger!
What are the effects?
Treatments can erase 5-15 years from the face by improving muscle tone, firming skin, and filling out wrinkles. The procedure also enhances metabolism to reduce puffiness, eases tension to improve fine lines and promotes overall improvement of complexion to bring out an innate healthy youthful glow.
Is Cosmetic Acupuncture a new and trendy technique?
For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. Even for those unfamiliar with the principles of Chinese Medicine, it is known that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better.
Does it really make a difference?
Yes! The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% saw visible results after one treatment. Our experience suggests similar results with patients reporting improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, complexion and overall rejuvenation.
Why choose acupuncture over a surgical face-lift?
Acupuncture is an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery. It is far less costly and safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. While it is not a replacement for surgery if one is trying to reshape a nose or chin, it will take years off of your face safely and naturally while improving your overall health.
Are there any contraindications?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is contraindicated for some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, individuals who have a pacemaker or who have a problem with bleeding or bruising, or who currently suffer from migraine headaches. Also it should not be done during pregnancy, during a bout with a cold or flu, during an allergic attack, or during an acute herpes outbreak.
