Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation, or cosmetic acupuncture, offers a natural approach to enhance skin health and appearance. By stimulating collagen production and improving circulation, this non-invasive treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, promotes a youthful glow, and restores balance to the body. Embrace the power of ancient wisdom to revitalize your natural beauty.

Facial Rejuvenation (Cosmetic) Acupuncture focuses on revitalizing various aspects of your skin, including:

  • Enhanced Elasticity: By stimulating collagen production, acupuncture promotes improved skin elasticity, resulting in a more youthful and supple complexion.
  • Balanced Color: Acupuncture helps to regulate blood circulation and promote a healthy flow of energy, which can contribute to a more balanced and radiant skin tone.
  • Improved Texture: Through its rejuvenating effects, acupuncture can refine skin texture, minimizing roughness and promoting a smoother and softer feel.
  • Diminished Dark Circles: Acupuncture treatments can help reduce the appearance of dark circles by improving blood circulation and reducing stagnation in the delicate under-eye area.
  • Reduced Puffiness: Acupuncture’s targeted techniques can help alleviate puffiness and fluid retention, leading to a more refreshed and revitalized facial appearance.
  • Softened Lines and Wrinkles: By stimulating collagen and elastin production, acupuncture can help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion.
  • Lifted Facial Contours and Improved Muscle Tone: Acupuncture can address sagging skin and promote firmer facial muscles, leading to a lifted and more defined facial structure.
  • Enhanced Facial Symmetry: Through its balancing effects on energy and muscle tone, acupuncture can help improve facial symmetry, creating a more harmonious and balanced appearance.
During Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, we not only target the visible signs of skin issues but also address the underlying imbalances that contribute to their appearance. Unlike more invasive procedures that involve cutting, burning, or injecting, the effects of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are subtler and more gradual. This approach removes the associated risks and downtime, making it a safer and gentler alternative for achieving natural and long-lasting results.

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, offers multiple benefits for your skin, including:

  • Collagen and Elastin Boost: Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that promote skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Enhanced Skin Texture: Through its micro-injury process, microneedling helps improve skin texture, making it smoother and more refined.
  • Discoloration Reduction: Microneedling can effectively reduce discoloration caused by brown spots and redness, promoting a more even skin tone.
  • Acne Scars and Facial Scars Improvement: By stimulating collagen production, microneedling helps diminish the appearance of acne scars and other facial scars, promoting a smoother and more uniform skin surface.
  • Improved Circulation: Microneedling helps improve blood circulation in the treated area, leading to enhanced skin health and a radiant complexion.
  • Diminished Lines and Wrinkles: The collagen-inducing effects of microneedling can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion.
  • Enhanced Skin Tone: Microneedling promotes improved skin tone, reducing dullness and promoting a brighter, healthier appearance.


Microneedling has its roots in ancient acupuncture techniques like Intradermal Needling, Plum Blossom, and Seven Star. These methods, which utilized tiny multi-needle-tipped hammers, were traditionally employed for skin and scar treatments throughout history. Today, microneedling has evolved into a modernized technique, utilizing mechanical devices that create multiple microchannels in the skin. This process stimulates fibroblasts, responsible for collagen and elastin production, while also enhancing serum absorption by up to 300%. By combining ancient wisdom with modern advancements, microneedling offers a powerful method to rejuvenate the skin and maximize the benefits of skincare treatments.

A typical course of treatment for Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture involves a series of sessions tailored to your specific needs and goals. The duration and frequency of the sessions may vary depending on individual factors such as skin condition, desired results, and overall health.

Typically, a course of treatment consists of multiple sessions spread out over several weeks or months. Each session involves a comprehensive assessment of your skin, followed by the application of specialized acupuncture techniques tailored to address your unique concerns.

The number of sessions required can vary, but it is common to undergo a series of 6 to 12 treatments for optimal results. These sessions are typically scheduled on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to ensure consistent progress.

Throughout the course of treatment, your acupuncturist may also recommend complementary therapies, such as herbal supplements, dietary adjustments, and lifestyle modifications, to support and enhance the effects of the acupuncture sessions.

It is important to note that individual responses to treatment may vary. Some individuals may start noticing improvements after just a few sessions, while others may require more time to achieve their desired outcomes. Your acupuncturist will closely monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan to ensure the best possible results.

After completing the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions may be recommended to prolong and sustain the benefits achieved. These sessions are typically spaced further apart and can help you maintain the improvements in your skin’s health and appearance over the long term.

The results of cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling can vary depending on individual factors such as skin condition, age, and overall health. While some individuals notice improvements after just a few sessions, it is important to understand that both treatments work gradually to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and enhance overall appearance. Typically, a series of treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results. Your practitioner will assess your specific needs and provide a personalized treatment plan, including an estimated timeline for anticipated changes in your skin.

While cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling treatments offer benefits to most individuals, it is important to consider certain conditions and situations in which these treatments may not be recommended:

High Blood Pressure: Individuals with severe and uncontrolled high blood pressure should avoid facial acupuncture due to the potential risks involved. It is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider and acupuncturist to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

Migraines: Those who experience frequent and severe migraines should be cautious with facial acupuncture, as it may occasionally trigger or exacerbate headaches. Increased qi and blood circulation to the head during treatment can potentially contribute to migraine symptoms. It is recommended to discuss your migraine history with your acupuncturist to ensure personalized and appropriate care.

Acute Viral/Bacterial Infections: If you are currently experiencing acute viral or bacterial infections, such as a cold, flu, allergies, or a herpes outbreak, it is advisable to postpone cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling treatments until you have fully recovered. This is to protect your well-being and prevent potential complications or discomfort during the treatment.

Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, and Active Conception: Cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling treatments are generally not recommended for individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or actively trying to conceive. It is essential to prioritize the safety and health of both the individual and the developing fetus or baby during these sensitive periods. Consult with your healthcare provider for guidance on skincare and wellness practices suitable for your situation.

Dermal Fillers and Intensive Skin Treatments: If you have recently undergone dermal filler treatments like Botox or received intensive skin treatments such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion, it is advisable to wait for a specific period before scheduling cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling sessions. This allows sufficient healing time and ensures optimal results. Consult with your healthcare provider or aesthetician to determine the appropriate waiting period based on the specific treatment you received.

Considering these factors will help ensure the safety and effectiveness of your cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling experience. It is essential to discuss any specific health concerns, conditions, or recent treatments with your acupuncturist before proceeding with these therapies.
