Cosmetic Acupuncture

According to the approach of Oriental Herbal Medicine, wrinkles begin internally from a weakness and imbalance of energy, or qi.

Qi circulates through the body within pathways called meridians. As it flows through these meridians, qi provides nourishment, support warmth and energy to every cell, tissue and muscle, thereby enhancing the “lift” of the face.

The use of acupuncture for facial rejuvenation balances the functions within the body and encourages the flow of blood and energy to the face.

Due to the physical constitution and lifestyle, the flow of energy in the body can become disrupted leading to a state of disharmony; these imbalances can manifest in the complexion and health of the skin. By supporting a healthy mind and body, you can improve the appearance of your face in a manner that you can both see and feel.

Tiny acupuncture needles are inserted under the skin of the face, encouraging qi and blood to flow upward and rise to the surface. The results are reduction of fine lines and increased glow. Additional needles are placed in other areas of the body according to diagnosis and differentiation.
