Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation


Look and Feel Younger Naturally

Facial 2

The roots of cosmetic acupuncture lie in the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In the TCM view, a person’s face reflects the state of health of the person’s internal organs. As internal organs are fortified and function in good order, one’s complexion and appearance improve too. Facial acupuncture is a holistic anti-aging treatment which enhances the outward appearance by addressing the deep-rooted causes of skin problems as the overall health benefits.

Facial acupuncture treatment works both locally on the face and the whole body. Ultra-fine needles are inserted into and around specific wrinkles, acupuncture-points, and muscle trigger points using unique needling techniques. I will often incorporate herbal poultices, gentle facial massage, jade therapy, organic moisturizer, and essential oils into the treatment. Dietary and lifestyle counseling for skin conditions are often an integral part of the treatments. Cosmetic acupuncture is nothing like many face-lifting procedures which use a “skin-deep” approach which can produce sudden, drastic changes in the underlying skin structures. Instead, cosmetic acupuncture goes deeper to the root of the problem by addressing bodily functions that manifest in the face. After a series of treatments, the facial muscles are toned up, the blood circulation to the face improves, and the face lifts itself.


The Journal of Clinical Acupuncture states that 90% of clients have marked improvement in their faces and experience an overall rejuvenation that is not confined to the face.
