Radiate youth and vitality by adding cosmetic acupuncture to your anti-aging regimen.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture? This ancient beauty secret is a virtually painless, natural approach to reducing the signs of aging and helping skin regain its youthful glow. Cosmetic acupuncture is a whole-body approach to wellness as it addresses the surface signs of aging as well as the internal stressors that contribute to the aging process.
How Does it Work? Needles as thin as a strand of hair are inserted carefully into key areas and creases in the face, causing tiny microtrauma to the skin that triggers an increase in blood flow and activates collagen production. Collagen, the body’s natural “filler,” increases muscle tone and elasticity. The increase in blood flow helps revitalize and nourish the skin, resulting in healthier skin, a dewy glow, and a more youthful appearance.
Cosmetic acupuncture promotes subtle, natural looking changes to the skin over time. Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include:
Cosmetic acupuncture uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to stimulate the production of collagen. With regular treatments, this natural “filler” often makes fine lines diminish or disappear completely.
Over time we develop deeper creases in areas involved in repetitive facial expressions. Needles are inserted directly into these lines and creases. As the body works to repair the small trauma created by the needle, it also repairs and fills the area surrounding it.
Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points that help relax tight muscles and strengthen elongated muscles. This restores the natural function of the muscles and results in a more lifted and toned appearance.
Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates greater blood flow to the face, improving the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the area. This helps correct color and texture imbalances.
Puffiness under the eyes can have many causes, such as lack of sleep, allergies, fluid retention and hormone changes. All of these can be addressed during a cosmetic acupuncture treatment and with consistent care, both symptoms and puffiness will subside.

Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates greater blood flow to the face, improving the delivery of oxygen, fluid and nutrients to the area. The improved nourishment and hydration often produce a “dewy” appearance.
Cosmetic acupuncture is the only anti-aging modality that improves overall health in addition to appearance. Treatments improve circulation throughout the entire body creating a more efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients. This results in a greater state of health and vitality.
Directly following your first cosmetic acupuncture treatment, one of our licensed acupuncturists will recommend a treatment plan that will help you reach your skincare goals. The average treatment course includes a total of 12 treatments, two treatments per week for six weeks. Results vary from person to person, but you’ll likely notice subtle changes to your skin tone and fine lines after just three treatments. Deeper wrinkles will start to vanish after about six treatments, with lasting changes to overall complexion, skin tone and texture and improved muscle toning and tightness after 12 treatments. Follow-up treatments are encouraged to maintain results.
Are There Any Risks? Cosmetic acupuncture is a chemical-free, natural approach to anti-aging, without the side effects, risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. There is no downtime, no swelling, or redness, and you never have to worry about allergic skin reactions. Although the majority of patients do not experience any complications, a small amount of bleeding, bruising or puffiness may occasionally occur.
Who is a Candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture? Our licensed acupuncturist will meet with you prior to your first treatment to ensure you are a suitable candidate for cosmetic acupuncture, but most men and women looking for a natural, alternative approach to reducing the signs of aging and improve overall wellness are candidates for cosmetic acupuncture. Those who are not eligible for cosmetic acupuncture include pregnant women, those with hemophilia or contagious skin diseases, those with a severe deficiency, or those who have undergone other cosmetic procedures such as injections and surgical procedures in the past 2-6 weeks.
