Cosmetic acupuncture can help to firm
and tone your skin, bringing about a
younger appearance and a greater
sense of well-being.
When applied to skin that is affected
by aging, cosmetic acupuncture helps
minimize wrinkles, lines and can help
to firm loose skin. With treatments, clients often enjoy additional benefits of
acupuncture, such as increased energy, better skin tone and a healthy glow
that comes from a deeper feeling of wellness.
Where is cosmetic acupuncture applied?
Cosmetic acupuncture is used on certain areas of the face. Specifically,
it’s used to lift and firm up skin that sags around the chin and eyes,
reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It improves the complexion and
gives the entire face a fresher-looking appearance.
How does cosmetic acupuncture help
you look younger?
The treatment uses acupuncture needles. These are sterile, stainless
steel needles that are hair-thin. A medical acupuncturist inserts them
painlessly into the skin at specific points. The body responds to the
insertion point as a micro-trauma, bringing better circulation, and
producing collagen and elastin in the immediate area. This healing
response results in skin that becomes firmer, with a healthier glow,
and reduced signs of wrinkles.
Comparison to other treatments
Cosmetic acupuncture is much gentler than Botox or surgery. It
requires no incisions or skin removal, acid peels or injections.
Acupuncture brings about subtle improvement. You will not get
the same results as a facelift, Botox or fillers. The results will also
not change your appearance the way that Botox, surgical facelifts
or under-skin fillers do. You get a more youthful look naturally,
without the side effects or recovery time needed from these other
Cosmetic acupuncture relies on the body’s healing process. It does
not rely on drugs, chemicals or implants. It has no side effects, and
avoids the need to spend time healing from more traumatic
How many treatments are needed?
To get the desired results, it’s recommended to plan a series of
10 treatments. Plan two treatments per week for 5 weeks.
Afterward, you can schedule just one treatment per month
as recommended to maintain your results. Results can last
from 3 to 5 years depending on your age and your schedule
