What is Cosmetic Acupuncture? Cosmetic acupuncture is a holistic approach to health, beauty and wellness. It addresses the external signs of aging as well as the internal stressors that contribute to the aging process.
How Does it Work? Hair-thin needles are carefully inserted into key areas in the face, causing tiny microtrauma to the skin that triggers an increase in blood flow and activates collagen production. Collagen, the body’s natural “filler,” increases muscle tone and elasticity. The increase in blood flow helps revitalize and nourish the skin, resulting in healthier skin, a dewy glow, and a more youthful appearance.
The BENEFITS of Cosmetic Acupuncture: reduced fine lines, softening of deeper wrinkles, lifted and toned muscles, more even skin tone and texture, decreased puffiness around the eyes, increased hydration, circulation and vitality.
Personalized Cosmetic Treatments Plans: directly following your first cosmetic acupuncture treatment, I will recommend a treatment plan that will help you reach your skincare goals. The average treatment course includes a total of 10 treatments. Results can vary for each individual, but you’ll likely notice subtle changes to your skin tone and fine lines after just three treatments. Deeper wrinkles will start to soften after about six treatments, with lasting changes to overall complexion, skin tone and texture and improved muscle toning and tightness after 10 treatments. Follow-up treatments are encouraged to maintain results.
Are There Any Risks? Cosmetic acupuncture is a chemical-free, natural approach to anti-aging, without the side effects, risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. There is no downtime, no swelling, or redness, and you never have to worry about allergic skin reactions. Although the majority of patients do not experience any complications, a small amount of bleeding, bruising or puffiness may occasionally occur.
Are you a candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture? I will meet with you prior to your first treatment to ensure you are a suitable candidate for cosmetic acupuncture, but most men and women looking for a natural, alternative approach to reducing the signs of aging and improve overall wellness are candidates for cosmetic acupuncture. Who is not eligible: if you are pregnant, a hemophiliac or have a contagious skin diseases, high blood pressure, major deficiency or have undergone other cosmetic procedures such as injections and surgical procedures in the past 2-6 weeks.

Energy Light Rejuvenation*:
Energy Light rejuvenation (ELR) is a combination of color light therapy and gentle, effective low-frequency microcurrents. ELR is applied via acupuncture points on the face with probes that deliver gentle vibrational frequencies. The result is an uplifted face as well as an “relaxed and de-stressed body and mind”. It is based on the principle that “Inner Balance = Outer Beauty”.
Why does ELR produce these great “side effects”?
Because the acupuncture meridian system connects the entire body. Points on the face have connections to all other parts of the body. Using ELR on the face has wide reaching effects throughout the entire system.
What might some of these effects be, apart from pain relief and facial rejuvenation?
Everybody is different but some reported effects have been: better, more restful sleep, improved digestion, increased sense of well-being and weight loss without dietary changes.
What Makes ELR Unique?
It uses a patented Microlight probe system combining modulated Microcurrent and 12 colors of therapeutic light. This offers deeper-acting, whole body effects.
Various colors address different skin conditions:
Green reduces facial wrinkles, enhance facial muscle tone and fullness. Good all-round color.
Turquoise, indigo and blue treats red, inflamed skin.
Red heals scar tissue and can be used for promoting circulation and energizing the face through increasing metabolism.
Yellow is effective for age spots & lymph drainage.
Indigo, blue, violet reduces bacterial acne and abscesses.
