This specialized form of acupuncture targets common skin worries such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and muscle tone, and scarring.
If your insurance provider covers acupuncture, this treatment is applicable for coverage.
Find your glow from within with a holistic skincare treatment that encourages healthy facial expression and supple skin.
With the help of acupuncture needles to increase the flow of blood and qi to these areas, the facial muscles are innervated and nourished. The result is a vitality (in TCM) or a “lit from within” glow.
At a cosmetic acupuncture appointment, your practitioner will discuss main concerns, and ask questions about your health or look at the skin to see what types of imbalances are present. A few body points are used to promote health and balance specific to you and your health concerns.
A treatment includes:
- Acupuncture for the face to target areas of concern
- LED light therapy with needles in for 20 minutes (optional, but an added bonus!)
- Facial + neck and scalp massage
We ask clients to arrive right on time for appointments. For your first appointment please ensure that you have filled out both your intake form and your COVID-19 screening form that were emailed to you. Wear comfortable clothing if you can. Eat a light snack before your appointment or have one handy after in case you feel you need nourishment.
It’s common to feel deeply relaxed and peaceful after a session. Take time to stay present with these sensations as they carry forward into your day or evening. It’s important to stay well hydrated after a treatment. While it’s okay to carry on with your daily activities or exercise routine after a session, we recommend taking it easy.
You may experience a little fatigue, and in some rare cases very mild flu-like symptoms (aching, headache) — all signs of your body’s natural healing and detoxification process.
