what is cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical method of reducing signs of the aging process. Cosmetic Acupuncture, often referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is much more than just a cosmetic procedure. It is a technique that revitalizes and rejuvenates from the inside-out, correcting any underlying imbalances in the whole person.

Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment is based on principles of Asian Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the body along energy meridians. Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to each persons's needs.

how many treatments do i need?

Usually, the program consists of a series of 12 treatments. The effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the seventh session. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to treatment.

Following the initial treatment series, maintenance sessions can prolong the results. It is often recommended to supplement the Cosmetic Acupuncture program with herbal and nutritional supplements, aromatherapy blends for the skin, and most importantly, a healthy whole-foods diet and regular exercise.
