Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial rejuvenation, is being hailed as a natural facelift. Younger looking skin, no more crows feet, and no Botox required! This all sounds great, but does it really work? Of course! It works by making you stronger on the inside, which eventually changes how you look on the outside.
Looking young isn't very fun if you feel old. And no one wants to look older than they feel. Cosmetic acupuncture is effective because it resolves the underlying imbalances preventing you from feeling youthful and vibrant.
As a licensed acupuncturist who practices cosmetic acupuncture, these are some of the most common questions I receive. If you would like to learn more, please call me to set up a free consultation to see how cosmetic acupuncture can benefit you!
Please note, those who are in poor health may require acupuncture and herbal treatments before starting a cosmetic acupuncture series. There needs to be a baseline of health to build on in order to yield cosmetic improvements.
Also, those with sun damage may have unpredictable results. Some people have excellent results while others take longer.
The needling style is also different from acupuncture. In cosmetic acupuncture, needling is shallow and just barely goes into the skin. Also, the needles are much shorter than acupuncture needles. The cosmetic acupuncture needles are similar to those used for auricular or hand acupuncture.
Thoughts and practical tips to help you look and feel your best based in the wisdom of Chinese medicine.
