Acupuncture stimulates cells under the skin that forces your body to make and distribute more collagen - not just temporarily but continuously!

The secret to effective treatment lies just beyond the first layer of the skin! An acupuncture needle inserted into specific areas where mastocytes congregate increases the release of collagen in that area. Mastocytes are special white blood cells that carry around dozens of important materials. When an acupuncture needle disrupts these cells it causes the mastocytes to dump their contents - collagen being the primary substance. A host of other anti-inflammatory substances are released including histamine which can help reduce redness or itchy skin. Serotonin helps by decreasing visible blood vessels in the skin and IL-4 which decreases inflammation. Inserting acupuncture needles to stimulate mastocytes under a wrinkle helps fill the wrinkle with increased collagen from the bottom instead of the top.

Acupuncture helps increase blood flow to help with tired-looking and dull skin.

Acupuncture needles cause a “micro-trauma”. Your body responds to these tiny injuries by sending its immune resources to the face, increasing the benefit of tissue healing, reducing dark spots and supporting healthier skin in general. A "micro-trauma" can be incredibly beneficial!

We have a special device that forces your body to continue to make and distribute natural collagen over time. And it feels great!

After a relaxing session of facial acupuncture a electrical device is connected to the needles at the end of the treatment. This scientifically advanced machine is set at a specific setting that research shows induces the most amount of collagen production. We insert the needles below the skin and connect the device so the electrical current is at proper depth. This is much stronger than topical micro current treatments!

We give you spa experience, plus medical grade benefits and quality serums that are all natural.

During the treatment we use a rejuvenating green tea or chamomile eye compress to help reduce the puffiness around the eyes. Hyaluronic acid and collagen serum is used during the treatment to help the most superficial part of the skin reap maximum benefit.

Traditional Chinese Facial Cupping is used to help reduce wrinkles and saggy skin.

To conclude the session we perform traditional chinese cupping to gently move all those amazing anti-inflammatory cells to target areas. Cupping feels wonderful but is also known to help tighten and lift saggy skin. GuaSha, also known as scraping or Graston is used in areas where the skin is rough or there are scars.

We don’t just fill your wrinkles, we help your body produce it’s own collagen so that your skin can be back to its youthful appearance naturally!

We provide information on how to take care of your skin from the inside out with customized dietary advice to follow up.

 

​Although laser treatments, micro-current, micro-needling, and infrared light therapy prove effective, nothing beats the effectiveness of acupuncture because of its ability to massively increase collagen and anti-inflammatory production. Cosmetic acupuncture nearly painless and very relaxing but it packs a punch to produce amazing results. Unlike an often instant but unnatural result botox can create, cosmetic acupuncture creates lasting results to enhance your natural features. Eight sessions can make you look and feel noticeably younger with more lift, less wrinkles and discoloration and can last up to a year or more depending on how well you take care of your skin. No more wrinkles filler, creams or expensive procedures that don’t last!
