Founded on the principles of oriental medicine, the procedure involves inserting needles on specific areas of the face and on the body.  This is to address all areas that may be causing stress which results in wrinkles.  Facial acupuncture offers a more holistic approach to achieving natural beauty.

What is facial acupuncture?

Facial acupuncture is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging while simultaneously revitalizing the whole body.  It is a holistic approach that will leave one looking younger and feeling rejuventated.

Who would benefit from facial acupuncture?

Anyone who is interested in restoring their skin to its youthful glow naturally may consider facial acupuncture.  The procedure is also suited for people concerned about deep wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, puffiness, large pores, dry skin and acne.  

What are the effects?

Facial acupuncture can erase 5-15 years from the face by improving muscle tone, increasing collagen production, firming skin, and filling out wrinkles. The procedure also enhances metabolism to reduce puffiness, eases tension to improve fine lines and promotes overall improvement of complexion to bring out a natural healthy youthful glow.

Does it really make a difference?

The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% saw visible results after one treatment.  Our experience suggests similar results with patients reporting improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, complexion and overall rejuvenation.

Why choose facial acupuncture over a surgical face-lift?

Facial acupuncture is an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery.  It is less expensive, safe, virtually painless and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement.  While facial acupuncture is not a replacement for surgery if one is trying to reshape a nose or chin, it will take years off of one’s face safely and naturally while improving overall health. 

Any contraindications?

Facial acupuncture is contraindicated for some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, and individuals who have a pacemaker, problem with bleeding or bruising, or currently suffering from migraines.  It should also not be applied during pregnancy, cold or flu, an allergic attack or acute herpes outbreak.
