Cosmetic Acupuncture and Microneedling
Have Been Used for More Than 2,000 Years…
They were first used in beauty treatments for royalty. While the body and ear needles promote overall balance, the face needles increase collagen and elastin production, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne, age spots, and sagging. Over time, tightness in certain muscles (we’re looking at you, corrugator muscles that draw the eyebrows together) creates an inability for these areas to receive proper blood supply and nourishment. Other muscles, which end up underused can become slack and gravity does what gravity does best – pulls things down.
Cosmetic acupuncture helps the undernourished areas to get access to nutrients and rebuild the underlying structures, making the skin act more like younger skin. The needles also revive the underused muscles and remind the connective tissue where we want it to hold things in place. The effect is a more balanced, youthful face.
Microneedling and nano needling both increase product absorption significantly: microneedling by 2,000%, and nano needling by 200%! Microneedling does this by creating small channels in the skin. The wonderful, clinically tested serums used can then penetrate to the layers of the skin that need them most. Microneedling also creates many tiny injuries, which the body responds to by building more collagen. Since collagen decreases as we age, microneedling can help slow, and to a degree reverse this process.

What Patients Are Saying
Who should get cosmetic acupuncture?
The best time to treat a wrinkle, sagging skin, acne, or thinning hair is the first time you notice it. The younger you are, and the less time you’ve had a concern, the fewer treatments it will take to fix it. I tell my family members to start when they turn 30, or sooner if they have a concern.
Is cosmetic acupuncture suitable for me?
What will my first session be like?
How long before I see the results?
All types of cosmetic acupuncture involve inserting short, very thin needles into the epidermis (0.1 -0.15mm deep) and dermis (.5mm deep) layers of the skin. For certain conditions, such as scarring, or for body acupuncture and microneedling, we will use longer needles.

How does nanoneedling work?
Can I get just one treatment?
Who should not get Microneedling:
- Pregnant women.
- Local infection such as warts, please tell your practitioner if you have any areas of local infection and we will avoid those areas.
- Patients with moderate to severe chronic skin disease such as eczema and psoriasis.
- Patients with Blood dyscrasias, patients on anticoagulant therapy.
- Patients with extreme keloidal tendency.
- Patient on chemo/radiotherapy.
Does acupuncture hurt?
There may be a pinch upon the initial insertion, and once the needle is in you may notice a dull, achy sensation, but it is not painful. Acupuncture needles are much smaller than the hypodermic needles you have experienced at the doctor’s office.
Are the needles re-used?
What is Cupping and does it hurt?
Cupping uses suction cups on the skin to release stuck connective tissue that may be adhered to the muscles. It also brings fresh blood and nutrients to the area, which stimulates natural healing processes. Cupping can feel like pressure, or a deep massage, but if it ever feels too painful, let your practitioner know, and the suction can be immediately adjusted.
How many Body Contouring sessions are recommended to see results?
Most people notice a significant difference in their body’s appearance in only 6 sessions. It takes about 6 sessions to shrink the fat cells significantly.
Should I do anything special before or after my session?
Do the herbs contain pesticides and heavy metals?
Is it ok to take Chinese herbs with my other medications?
That depends upon the medications and the herbs. This will be carefully evaluated. Please be sure to inform all practitioners of medications and supplements you are taking.
