Cosmetic Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) can provide a safe, effective, natural, and drug-free approach to reducing the signs of aging. A facial rejuvenation using this ancient technique can improve muscle tone of the face and neck while addressing underlying imbalances that may have contributed to the aging process.

Why does skin sag?
According to TCM, wrinkles begin internally from a constitutional imbalance and fundamental weakness of Qi (pronounced "chee"). Qi circulates throughout the body within a series of pathways called meridians. Flowing through these pathways, Qi provides nourishment, support, and energy to every cell, tissue, muscle, and organ.

As we get older it becomes more difficult to Qi to flow upwards to "lift" the face. This leads to inadequate muscle tone, and over time, wrinkles and sagging skin. A variety of factors can contribute to this - poor diet, digestion and circulation, or emotional and environmental stresses.

Give your skin a lift
A facial rejuvenation using acupuncture tightens pores and improves muscle tone and dermal contraction while enhancing and increasing the elasticity of the skin. Acupuncture can reduce signs of aging by strengthening and stimulating the circulation of Qi within the meridian pathways, especially those of the face. You will look and feel more energetic, calm, vibrant and healthy.

Acupuncture treatments may be combined with herbal supplements, exercise and acupressure in order to maximize results.

Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture and TCM is virtually painless and a non-surgical alternative to reduce the signs of aging. Before using drugs or surgery to improve appearance, consider acupuncture. It is an effective, natural, safe, drug-free and painless alternative. It helps your whole body to look and feel younger.
