Cosmetic Acupuncture FAQ


COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE FACIAL REJUVENATION

How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work?

While any acupuncture treatment will make you look and feel better, Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation specifically focuses on improving your appearance while simultaneously treating the underlying factors causing aging.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation includes body points to stimulate metabolism, whole body rejuvenation, and healing from within.   This activates deep relaxation of the body and mind. Strategically placed facial points lift and tone the face, while stimulating collagen to fill in fine lines and soften skin.

What happens during each session?

During your first treatment, we will discuss your health history and treatment goals.  I will then place the points and allow you to rest comfortably one the treatment table.  Most people fall into a restorative sleep as I am placing the points.  After I remove the points, you will receive a gentle face and scalp massage to promote further circulation and relaxation.

What is the course of treatment?

The first course of treatment is 12 sessions administered twice weekly followed by monthly or quarterly maintenance visits.  Most people report they have a radiant glow and feel better after the first session.  The effects become most noticeable and lasting around the seventh session.  Everyone responds differently depending on his or her constitution and lifestyle.  After the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions prolong the results for 5-10 years.

You will receive tailored recommendations for at home care such as self-massage, exercise and healthy diet.

Do I need a separate series of treatments for each area of concern?

No.  We will treat all your concerns at once.

I have studied three different styles of Cosmetic Acupuncture and have formulated my own protocol, customized to the individual.  My treatment philosophy is to lift and tone all the facial and neck structures while promoting collagen and elastin to flourish in the tissues.  I also “spot” treat the specific areas of concern as this varies with everyone.

Does it really work?

A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment.  Acupuncture has been treating and preventing illnesses for thousands of years.  The efficacy of acupuncture is due to its direct effect on balancing the body’s bioelectric system.

Why should I choose Cosmetic Acupuncture over Cosmetic surgery?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a holistic way to look and feel better without surgery. It costs far less than cosmetic procedures and is safe and effective. No extended recovery time is needed.  Refresh your appearance while enhancing your overall health and wellbeing.

Can I have this treatment if I have had cosmetic surgery, Botox or injectable fillers?

Yes.

Acupuncture helps to speed healing and stimulates your natural collagen production and cell metabolism.  We will work together to optimize your results and other procedures.

Botox: I recommend waiting 2 weeks after Botox before acupuncture on the face.

Cosmetic Fillers: The cosmetic-type injectable fillers take about 7-10 days to integrate into your skin’s collagen structure. We would work around the injected area during that timeframe.

Cosmetic Surgery: If you are having a surgical procedure, I recommend non-cosmetic acupuncture treatments before and after your surgery because this will increase your body’s healing mechanisms.  Acupuncture before surgery will boost your immunity, and acupuncture post surgery will help speed your recovery while reducing swelling.

What does it treat?

My patients report the following results:

  • Improve firmness of your neck & face
  • Eliminate facial puffiness
  • Reduce bags around the eyes
  • Eliminate fine lines
  • diminish the appearance of deeper wrinkles
  • Improve metabolism
  • Increase collagen production & cell renewal
  • Balance hormones & reduce acne
  • Improve facial color and circulation
  • Reduce scars
  • Minimize double chins
  • Reduce stress in the face
  • Bring out your natural glow
  • Slow the aging process from within
  • Better sleep and energy

Used as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD), this procedure may eliminate as many as 5-15 years from the face.  Your authentic glow will emerge as the treatment releases the cumulative stress, tension and emotions held in the face and body.  More than just a cosmetic procedure; your whole body look and feel better.

Do I need to take time off work while undergoing treatment?

The treatments don’t require any downtime and many people come in on their lunch hour.  If you are seeking treatment for a special occasion, I recommend completing your sessions 2-4 weeks ahead of your event.  For individuals who are on blood thinners or bruise easily, Arnica gel/cream and pellets can help minimize bruising.  Limiting sugar, processed foods and alcohol before and during treatment will lower inflammation systemically while reducing any chances of bruising.

Post Treatment Care

After treatment, please keep yourself protected from wind, and extreme temperature changes. Please rest, drink plenty of water and eat moderately.

B12 Injections Available! $25


14260573 - happy woman in white dress jumping on beach

Your body needs B12 to ensure proper cell function and metabolism. For some individuals, B12 isn’t well absorbed through diet or in capsule form and injections can provide better absorption. After B12 injections, many patients feel a natural restoration of their energy.  This procedure, called Acu-Point Injection, places B12 into the most powerful acupuncture points so you get the added benefits of circulation through the meridian system along with activation of the acupuncture point.

Who Can Benefit?

Most people can benefit from a B12 injection, particularly those who live a busy life, are athletes, seniors, vegetarians, vegans, and those on medications or with digestive issues.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Boosts Energy & Reduces Fatigue
  • May Improve Your Mood
  • Decreases Anxiety & Depression
  • Improves Sleep
  • May Improve Heart Health By Decreasing Homocysteine Levels
  • Supports Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails
  • Improves Metabolism
  • Helps Anemia
  • Reduces PMS & Menopause Symptoms
  • Reduces & Clear Acne
  • Improves Mental Fogginess
  • More Efficient Workouts

Injection Vs. Oral B12.  What’s the Difference In Benefits?

Many people have poor absorption of nutrients due to diet, medications, digestive issues and other health conditions.  The benefit of an injection is that it bypasses the digestion/absorption pathway allowing for higher bioavailability of the nutrient.  This is called parenteral administration and can be given intramuscularly or subcutaneously.

How Long Does It Take?

B12 Injections are easy and take less than 15 minutes.  B12 is gently placed in acupuncture points on the lower leg while you are seated or resting your eyes for a moment on the table.  Its an efficient way to boost your energy and health and easily fits into your day.  The recommended frequency will depend on your health goals.

Does It Hurt?

I use a very tiny gauge needle and most of my patients barely feel the injection.
