Have you tried facial acupuncture yet? You must - it's the best! Facial acupuncture (also known as cosmetic acupuncture) works by stimulating the body’s natural ability to produce collagen and to bring circulation, collagen, and elastin to the skin of the face, leading to tighter, smoother, brighter, plumper, glowing skin.
What is facial acupuncture?
Facial Acupuncture is a specific set of acupuncture points used to naturally enhance and boost the look and health of your skin. During a treatment, tiny needles are placed in key acupuncture points on the face. It works by causing tiny microtrauma to the skin, which signals the body to send collagen, elastin, and microcirculation to the face to heal, repair, and glow. Along with the points on the face, we'll also do body points to balance and boost skin from the inside out. These body points are customized to each person's needs and goals.
How does it work?
Needles as thin as a strand of hair are inserted carefully into specific areas in the face, causing tiny microtrauma to the skin and dermis that triggers an increase in blood flow and activates collagen and elastin production. The result is revitalized and nourished skin, a brighter complexion and a more youthful appearance.
What results can I expect to see?
You can expect to see tighter, smoother, brighter, plumper, glowing skin. You can notice improvements with fine lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scars, dry or dull skin, dark circles, puffy eyes, redness, dryness and so much more.
- reduction of fine lines
- softening of deeper wrinkles
- lifting and toning
- evening of skin tone and textire
- reduction of under-eye bags and puffiness
- improved complexion
- better hydration
- increased circulation, vitality, and glow
How many treatments do I need?
Treatments are recommended 1-2x a week for a total of 10 treatments. This allows the body the proper amount of time to repair the dermis and give long-lasting results to the skin. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6 - 12 weeks, depending on the individual.
Can I just get one facial acupuncture treatment?
Of course! You can get Facial Acupuncture just once if you want, but results will be less dramatic and won't last as long as doing a full course of treatment. It takes about 5 weeks to affect the dermis, which is what causes dramatic and lasting results.
Are there any side effects of facial acupuncture?
Facial acupuncture is safe and gentle with no downtime needed. It is a chemical-free, natural approach to anti-aging, without the side effects, risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. Most patients do not experience any complications. However, a small amount of bleeding, bruising or puffiness may occasionally occur. This isn't common, and we've trained extensively to minimize bruising. However, it's always a possibility. Most clients walk out glowing.
Is there anyone who can't have facial acupuncture?
Yes, if you are pregnant, have received botox recently, or if you get migraines/chronic headaches, then it's not the right time to receive facial acupuncture.
Is there anything I need to do before a treatment to prepare?
We always recommend having a small meal an hour or two before any acupuncture treatment, but other than that, no!
Can I get facial acupuncture if I have botox/filler?
Yes absolutely, we just recommend waiting 4 weeks post-botox-treatment to get facial acupuncture.
Can I claim facial acupuncture with my insurance benefits?
Unfortunately, no. While we are in network with many insurance companies, most insurance policies will not cover for cosmetic treatment.
