Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe, non-surgical and drug-free way to reduce the signs of aging. This holistic anti-aging treatment addresses the balance of the whole body, helping you to feel younger in addition to looking younger. Treatments are normally 1-2 times per week, based on the patients constitution and goals. For a course of 10-15 treatments with 12 treatments being the average. Treatments are accumulative and results are usually more obvious around the 6th or 7th treatment. Some patients will notice changes after only one session though.
Treatment involves the insertion of very fine facial Acupuncture needles into specific points on the head and face, with body points added to correlate with your individual needs. Each treatment takes about 50 minutes, with the needles left in place for about 25-30 minutes. During this time you relax in one of our comfortable treatment rooms with lights dimmed and soft music playing for a total relaxation experience.
How long do the effects last? Every patient is different, and length of effect is dependent on several factors including age, health of the skin, and general health. Results have potential to last from 1 to 5 years, and maintenance treatments are usually performed once per month or season to maximize longevity of treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture can be combined with Micro needling & Nano needling for the ultimate cosmetic treatment.
