How it helps
Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments promote the circulation of energy and blood in the face. This form of medicine works internally to promote skin health while enhancing your overall skin appearance.
The tiny pins create micro-traumas in the skin that promote collagen and elastin production as well as increase the healing rate of the skin in the specifically needled areas.
Cosmetic Acupuncture can be used in both preventative and corrective measures to treat a variety of ailments in the skin. In your first treatment, your skin will be glowing and through continued treatments, you can address a variety of issues from acne, rosacea, dullness, and softening of fine lines and wrinkles.
The goal for this form of Acupuncture is to increase overall skin health and to address the skin from the inside out. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a traditional Acupuncture treatment with an added focus on the face area.
The treatment begins with body Acupuncture to relax the mind, balance hormones, diffuse digestive discomfort, and increase blood production and flow. Then an Acupuncture treatment is performed on the face to bring focus to the areas of concern. So don’t let the word cosmetic confuse you, this treatment is therapeutic and provides health benefits.

01. Is cosmetic acupuncture painful?
Tiny pins are used in the face that will invoke a range of sensations from nothing at all to a tiny pinch or maybe a slight ache. Most people find the treatment very relaxing and often fall asleep.
02. How many treatments will I need to see results?
It’s recommended to plan for about 5-10 weekly treatments for best results. Some patients choose to come once a month for general skin health and maintenance. Every person’s body reacts differently to treatment so the number of treatments can vary. Coming in for a consultation and treatment is helpful in determining a treatment plan.
03. What can I expect after a cosmetic acupuncture treatment?
There is no downtime after your treatment. Skin is left glowing and hydrated. If needed and requested, ideal product recommendations can also be outlined for your skin care routine.
04. Can I still receive cosmetic acupuncture if I have had botox or filler?
Yes, you definitely can. You just need to wait 2 weeks after receiving botox or 3 weeks after receiving filler before you can have Cosmetic Acupuncture.
