Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine beauty tools have been used for thousands of years. Many of these techniques have been cherry-picked and rebranded by the beauty industry (gua sha, microneedling, internal and external herbal ingredients.) Cosmetic facial acupuncture remains a comprehensive, safe, and highly effective tool to improve the appearance of the skin and neck.

 

How does it work?

Cosmetic facial acupuncture works by improving blood circulation in the muscles and skin of the face and neck, relieving tension, promoting the movement of lymph, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, and relaxing the sympathetic nervous system to support healthy hormone balance. Like any acupuncture treatment, cosmetic facial acupuncture affects multiple systems to improve sleep, mood, digestion, reduce pain, and slow the aging process.

 

What is the treatment like?

I use steamed herbal compress massage, facial cupping, facial gua sha massage, microneedling, and topical products before or after facial acupuncture treatment as appropriate. The result is a deeply relaxing holistic facial and wellness experience.

Who is a good candidate for cosmetic facial acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture is for individuals looking to improve their appearance but feeling resistant to injections, harsh peels, lasers, or surgical procedures. It’s a great fit for those also interested in supporting their health and emotional wellbeing, learning and adopting highly effective at home self care practices, and saving money.

How many treatments do I need?

After an initial series I recommend monthly or quarterly maintenance treatment to prolong the positive results. You can expect results to “hold” for 3-5 years, and of course individual results will vary.

 

I offer cosmetic facial acupuncture treatment in a series of 10 weekly visits. Your age, skin condition, and unique health landscape might do well with more or fewer treatments to achieve optimal results. I encourage you to schedule a free consultation to discuss your goals and my treatment options. I will happily share my experience and discuss what you can expect if we work together.

I'm not interested in having needles in my face.

Fair. You're the boss. You might consider coming in for facial cupping and gua sha treatment only. I see profound results with consistent application, and as part of your visit I will help you develop a routine to continue at home. In fact, I recommend that anyone receiving a series of cosmetic facial acupuncture treatments begins a regular facial cupping/gua sha home routine. It reinforces the benefits of facial acupuncture treatment and provides a gentle nervous system intervention, encouraging calm.
