Cosmetic Acupuncture is the practice of promoting the radiant
and youthful appearance of those who receive treatment. Cosmetic Acupuncture
incorporates the entire spectrum of acupuncture. It balances the appearance of
the face and problem areas, along with the internal health and balance of the
body. You will enjoy a state of abundant
health, and your outward appearance will reflect you inner health and
beauty. The work that is done to remove
your fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite will be long lasting. When the
body is in a state of utmost health the outward appearance of the patient reflects
the inner beauty that lies within all of us.
How it works.
There are three main points of focus
with Cosmetic Acupuncture. The first is the acupuncture
portion. As acupuncturists we are trained to observe and palpate
the patient to determine the main sources of deficiency and excess. Once
this pattern is determined a point prescription is then made and needles
are gently inserted into the body. Once the body needling is complete,
then the practitioner moves onto the face. Small inter-dermal needles are
placed directly into the fine lines and wrinkles of the face reducing the
appearance of aging and the ravages of time.
The facial needles cause micro-trauma in the skin, which in turn
increases blood flow and the production of collagen in the area. Increased collagen in the face helps to fill
in your fine lines and wrinkles and improves your appearance. Then Gua Sha
rubbing techniques are used to further erase lines and break-up the wrinkle
patterns in your skin.
The second portion of cosmetic
acupuncture is diet and herbal prescription. Again the excess and
deficiencies are determined and herbal formulations are given to the patient to
improve overall health. The patient is also given advice on diet.
Without the body being in good health, the cosmetic acupuncture will not hold as
long, and the patient will not be as happy with the results.
The third portion of cosmetic acupuncture is patient self-care
maintenance. The patient will be educated on how to exercise different
facial muscles to maintain a youthful appearance and prevent muscle loss.
The patient will also be instructed on how to apply different Oriental Medicine
creams and salves to keep fine lines and wrinkles to a minimum. The
patient will then be taught how to effectively use various acupuncture tools
and techniques on their own to maintain and enhance the work done by the
