Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective and non-invasive treatment to reduce the signs of aging. The treatment involves insertion of very fine and sterile needles on key points and areas on the face. Acupuncture improves the circulation of qi and blood on the face. These needles also stimulate collagen production improving the elasticity of the facial muscle and making it look firmer.

Health and beauty are intertwined. Our face reflects our inner health. According to TCM, wrinkles and blemishes result from internal imbalances as much as external imbalances. Just like any acupuncture treatment, a cosmetic acupuncture treatment is very individualistic. Keeping in mind that the face reflects one`s inner health as well, a cosmetic acupuncture session will involve correcting some of the body imbalances along with rejuvenating the face.
A typical session will start with a consultation. This may take longer for the first visit but will be short for the consecutive visits. The treatment will begin with cleaning the face. It is advisable to come for the treatment without any makeup. This is followed by acupuncture – both body and the face will be needled. The needles used for the face are of a much smaller gauge than those used for the body. The last step is a facial massage. The entire process takes roughly 1 hour. You will start to see the results from the treatment in 4-5 weeks. We recommend 10-12 sessions at least for an optimal treatment. Ideally twice a week, however it can be tailored to once a week as well.
