Cosmetic acupuncture remedies the surface effects of aging by triggering a self-repair response in the skin and addressing the internal stressors that lead to the signs of aging. Cosmetic acupuncture is a chemical-free, natural approach to anti-aging, without the side effects, risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic acupuncture promotes subtle, natural looking changes to the skin over time.
The benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include:
Softening of deep wrinkles
Evening of skin tone and texture
Increased muscle tone, and tightened pores
Elimination or reduction of fine lines
Improved skin hydration
Increased circulation and vitality
Reduction of under-eye bags
Diminished acne by improved hormonal balance
How does it work?
Hair-thin needles are gently inserted into key areas and creases in the face, causing tiny microtrauma to the skin that triggers an increase in blood flow and activates production. These small punctures stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing skin from the inside out. This helps even out your complexion and promote your skin’s glow. The positive microtraumas also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps improve elasticity and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Personalized Cosmetic Treatment Plans
Directly following your first cosmetic acupuncture treatment, Alana will recommend a treatment plan that will help you reach your skincare goals. Results vary from person to person, but you’ll likely notice subtle changes to your skin tone after three treatments with longer lasting changes to overall complexion, skin tone, improved muscle toning and tightness, fine lines, and skin texture after 12 treatments.
Are there any risks?
Most patients do not experience any complications. However, a small amount of bleeding, bruising or puffiness may occasionally occur.
