Cosmetic Acupuncture


What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

A natural non-surgical alternative to western cosmetic surgery. Drawn from the ancient texts of Chinese medicine, cosmetic acupuncture is a specialist holistic, natural and comprehensive program designed to restore, rejuvenate and relax. Small acupuncture needles are placed just under the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

 

What to expect?
The results of cosmetic acupuncture reflect not only a change in external appearance, but also an improvement in total body wellness, specifically, you may notice:

  • More radiant skin
  • Reduction of fine lines
  • Smoothing of deep lines
  • Fading of age spots
  • More toned muscles
  • Reduction of saggy bags and puffiness under eyes
  • Lifting of droopy eyelids
  • Minimization of double chins
  • Enhance overall appearance and health

Additionally, acupuncture procedure is a holistic one; therefore it promotes better digestion and sleep cycles, and emotional/hormonal balance.

 

The Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture

  • Promotes blood and lymph circulation, increased circulation dilates peripheral blood vessels for better distribution of oxygen and nutrients as well as cellular regeneration.
  • Rehydrate the skin’s external layers through stimulation of the secretion of the sweat and sebaceous glands which encourages the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
  • Helps exfoliation, aids the proliferation of new skin cells, increasing nutrition to the skin’s surface, which improves skin’s quality and promotes a healthy glow.
  • Allows healthy “breathing” of the skin, increasing the skin’s protective ability to protects against infections and clogged pores
  • Increases oxygen consumption of the skin’s external layer speeding up the release of carbon dioxide and nitrogen at the cellular level, helping to keep skin deeply cleaned.
  • Stimulates the production of elastin and four collagen proteins in the skin to reduce and soften wrinkles.
  • Reduces and relaxes nerve and muscle tension improving the integrity of the skin resulting in improved overall facial appearance.

 

Success of Cosmetic Acupuncture

Some of these effects included: improved elasticity of the facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion and overall rejuvenation not confined to the face.
