WHAT IS COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE?
Cosmetic acupuncture is a whole-body approach to reducing the signs of aging on the surface, while addressing the internal factors that contribute to premature aging, inflammation, and hormone imbalance.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE?
We can help you achieve your skincare goals, whether that is eliminating fine lines, reducing deeper lines, decreasing puffiness, addressing under-eye circles, lifting and toning facial muscles, defining your chin line, reducing redness, or treating acne.

We offer 60-minute cosmetic acupuncture sessions, as well as 90-minute cosmetic acupuncture + facial combination sessions.
All sessions include cosmetic facial acupuncture, Celluma light therapy, facial gua sha, facial cupping, and the application of restorative serums.
Each session is unique to you, and your specific areas of concern. As a Marie Veronique skincare partner, we use premium, non-toxic skincare products to tailor treatment to your skin type.
Feel free to request before and after photos of your session so you can witness your own undeniable transformation.
Microneedling is an excellent complement to cosmetic acupunture – learn more about our microneedling services.
HOW DOES COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Extremely tiny (think hair-thin!) needles are placed 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.
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 for cosmetic acupuncture 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.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
Cosmetic acupuncture is an all-natural, organic, chemical-free approach to anti-aging. It is without the side effects, risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. There is no swelling or redness, no delay in seeing immediate results (though the results last longer as the course of treatment progresses), and you do not 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.
