Cosmetic acupuncture is an ancient practice adapted for contemporary use. Cosmetic acupuncture is a nonsurgical method of reducing the signs of the aging . It increases circulation and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer skin, lifting around eyes, and the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness. Cosmetic acupuncture can erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face. As your face and skin are a reflection of the health of your entire body, it is important to do a holistic assessment and treatment plan. Many people may have a fear of needles, but these tiny needles are made specifically for the delicate structure of the skin. The needle treatment is very relaxing on the face and cosmetic acupuncture has a more natural lifting effect. After the acupuncture treatment, clients are provided a facial massage and herbal collagen mask for lifting and rejuvenating the skin. Restore a youthful glow!
