Acupuncture has been around for centuries. The proven benefits have been around for just as long. Our new Facial Acupuncture service has shown to be very beneficial as well. It is fast becoming the better, less invasive alternative to Botox or surgery. We know there are bound to be many questions. First and foremost, we always give detailed consultations to ensure your comfort level and allow you to make an informed decision. Here are some basic questions and answers.
What does the procedure entail?
First, we will have a consultation with you to discuss exactly what will happen during the procedure. This technique involves an acupuncturist inserting 40 to 70 tiny and painless needles on different areas of your face. After a short period of time, we remove the needles and you are done.
How does this procedure benefit my skin and overall appearance?
The needles puncture the skin and create small wounds within its threshold, which are called positive microtraumas. When your body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode. This sends a signal to the body to produce more collagen. By stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory system it also sends nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells. All of this combines to help minimize wrinkles, fine lines, increases elasticity and gives your skin a more balanced, radiant look. All this without surgery!
Will I see a change immediately?
While you may see some improvement right away, it generally takes a few sessions to start noticing a big difference. We suggest that you have a series of treatments for the best results. We advise that you start with 10 treatments once or twice a week and then to maintain your results, come in and see us every month or two. Can anyone perform this procedure? No. Your safety and wellbeing is our primary concern. Please make sure you always go to someone who is licensed. All of our practitioners are licensed and will discuss the procedure with you at length. We always want you to feel comfortable and well informed with any procedure you receive from us.
