Cosmetic Acupuncture

Acupuncture therapy - Dr. Betty Keller Acupuncture NJWhat is cosmetic


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

of treatments.
