a holistic, natural approach to skincare, graceful aging, & overall wellness
If you are looking for a holistic, natural approach to skincare, graceful aging, and overall wellness, cosmetic acupuncture and/or microneedling may be a great choice for you.
We offer a unique, integrative approach to cosmetic and clinical skincare concerns, using a blend of traditional Chinese medicine, functional medicine, & holistic skincare products.
What to expect
Clinical concerns include, but are not limited to, Bell’s Palsy, TMJ, jaw tension/pain, ptosis, headaches, rosacea, acne, perioral dermatitis, and chronic sinus infections.
Cosmetic improvements commonly include increased vitality and microcirculation of skin, diminished fine lines, reduction of wrinkles, lifted and toned facial muscles, a more even skin tone, lighter under-eye circles and overall reduction of eye puffiness, reduction of redness, acne and cysts, and a more balanced, glowing complexion.
Modalities available during facial acupuncture sessions include facial needles, which require extreme care and precision, other placement of needles, facial gua sha & cupping, Celluma light therapy, and the application of skin care products with premium ingredients. (We are a Marie Veronique partner.)
How Does Facial Acupuncture Work?
Facial acupuncture includes placing extremely tiny (think hair-thin!) needles gently into specific areas of the body, head and face, causing local changes that increase blood flow and stimulate collagen production. This combination increases elasticity, muscle tone and vitality, nourishes and repairs the skin, resulting in a natural glow, a “lifted” appearance, more open eyes, more defined cheekbones, a dewy glow and more youthful appearance.
Microneedling is an excellent complement to cosmetic acupuncture – learn more about our microneedling services.
the services We offer
Cosmetic acupuncture sessions which include a thorough constitutional evaluation, facial acupuncture to address your individual concerns (e.g., wrinkles around eyes, nasolabial lines, etc.), full body acupuncture to address any constitutional imbalances that may be contributing to accelerated aging, and Celluma light therapy.
Acupuncture facials which include everything in our cosmetic acupuncture sessions, plus traditional facial services tailored to your unique skincare needs. We are a Marie Veronique skincare partner, and sell their line at our wellness center.
Collagen induction therapy through microneedling is a highly effective, minimally invasive method of proactively caring for aging skin, or repairing damaged or prematurely aged skin. Microneedling induces the skin to produce collagen and elastin, and in the healing process, diminishes fine lines and deeper wrinkles, gently resurfaces acne scars, fades age spots and sun spots, creates more tone, and a smoother, more balanced complexion.
is it right for you?
Most people looking for a holistic, natural approach to anti-aging and overall wellness are suitable for cosmetic acupuncture.
Individuals who are not the best candidates include pregnant people, those with bleeding disorders, unmanaged high blood pressure, severe migraines, and those who have undergone other cosmetic procedures such as injections and surgical procedures in the past 2-4 weeks.
If you have questions about any of the above, we are more than happy to discuss.
WHICH TYPE OF APPOINTMENT SHOULD YOU SCHEDULE?
Needs will vary based on individual treatment goals.
If you have questions, feel free to schedule a complimentary video consultation through the online booking link. We are happy to connect with you.
Most people ultimately choose a series of cosmetic acupuncture sessions, supplemented with acupuncture facials and microneedling sessions, to achieve their holistic skincare goals.
Our recommendation most often, is to initiate treatment with an Initial Cosmetic Acupuncture Session. If you are certain you only want to do Microneedling, feel free to start by scheduling your first microneedling session.
