Cosmetic Acupuncture

Acupuncture therapy - Dr. Betty Keller Acupuncture NJWhat is cosmetic acupuncture?

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 treatments.

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 procedures.

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.

I wanted to try a more natural way to reverse the signs of aging. I was not disappointed. I did a series of 10 cosmetic acupuncture treatments and was very happy with the results. The treatment is painless and I often fell asleep. The added benefit is Dr. Keller always put in some needling just for relaxing and stress reduction. If your thinking of trying cosmetic acupuncture go see Dr. Keller.

I’ve been getting acupuncture treatments for my migraines, and decided to see how cosmetic acupuncture could help with my aging skin. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. My friends keep telling me how great I look! It has given me a refreshed appearance, with smoother skin and less fine lines. It is so relaxing. After my series of 10 treatments, I now come just once a month to maintain my results.
