HOW
TREATMENT
WORKS

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

Cosmetic acupuncture addresses underlying causes, which become reflected in the face through dark circles, dry or lusterless skin, drooping eyelids, blemishes, or excessive wrinkling. By activating acupuncture points on the face, acupuncture regulates the flow of energy (qi) and removes blockages in the meridians to improve overall health and
restore balance to the body.

Cosmetic acupuncture helps to hydrate
and nourishes the skin from within. Local metabolism is greatly improved.  Fine lines
may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced, and sagging eye and neck areas firmed and toned, aged spots faded, acne reduced due to improved hormonal balance. The end results
are: glowing, radiant, younger looking skin.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is not a replacement for surgery.  However, it is an excellent natural alternative. It is much less costly and a safer treatment. It is painless and has no negative side effects; there is no trauma inflicted on the body or need for recovery.

Cosmetic Acupuncture has been performed for thousands of years in China. As early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD) Cosmetic Acupuncture was performed on the Empress and Emperor’s concubines. For centuries, the Chinese have known that beauty radiates from the inside out. If the internal body is nourished and the energy and blood are flowing smoothly, the external body will reveal this radiance. A study in 1996 in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation.

The treatment plan includes:
Assessment, medical and cosmetic acupuncture, facial massage. A typical treatment program includes 12 sessions (1-2 sessions/week). Typically after the 6th or 7th treatment the facial skin is visibly younger and healthier looking. After the program is completed, a monthly follow-up is recommended to maintain the benefits.  The results can usually last for 3 to 5 years. Based on the clinical assessments, herbal (formula) tea may also be included in treatment program.  The individualized herbal medicine will help address the underlying internal disorders
(or root causes).
