What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture or “facial rejuvenation acupuncture” is a non-invasive procedure designed to address fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve the overall appearance and complexion of the skin. It is based on the principles of traditional Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable laser cut needles about .013min in diameter into the origin and the insertion point of the primary  facial muscles. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines. Needling the origin and insertion of a muscle causes an acute muscle spasm, this gives firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

A 1996 report in the international journal of clinical acupuncture revealed that of 300 controlled test cases who received cosmetic acupuncture 90% of the participants had positive results after one course of treatments (one course of treatment involved 10-12 sessions).
