What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture, also referred to as facial acupuncture, is a unique style of acupuncture that stimulates the production of collagen, softens and prevents aging, gently lift and scultpt the jawline and cheeks, gives a healthy and glowly look, reduces jaw tension and relieves stress.
It is a natural non-invasive method that uses the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine to balance your body and improve your skin health.
How does Cosmetic
Cosmetic Acupuncture works on different levels.
The insertion of needles creates a microtrauma that activates a cascade of healing mechanisms such as the production of collagen to fill in and restructure the area. This results in a lifting effect and wrinkles elimination or reduction.
Along with this healing process, blood flow, and therefore oxygen and nutrients, is restored in the area giving the skin a radiant look.
The technique used induce the tightening of the facial muscles creating a more sculpted appearance.
What to expect during a session?
At your first session, I will ask you about your general health, inspect your skin, check your tongue and pulse.
After lying down on the comfy table, you will receive body acupuncture in order to relax and help with anything you are currently going through. Then I will gently cleanse your skin and massage your face to activate the meridians. Facial acupuncture will be applied for 20min. The needles will be removed and I proceed to the lymphatic drainage, gua-sha, cupping and roller massage.
How many treatments are needed?
Acupuncture has a cumulative effect, thus repeated treatments are needed to create a lasting effect. The general recommendation for a series 10 of cosmetic acupuncture treatments is 1-2 treatments per week for 5 to 8 weeks.
What kind of results can I expect?
Patients start seeing results after 4-5 treatments. The results and their intensity (wrinkles reduction, complexion...) depends on the patient age and lifestyle (nutrition, smoking, sleep, alcohol, exercise...).
I always offer to take a picture before and after treatment so that patients stay motivated seeing the results. Pictures are optional.
