What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

We’re so glad you asked! While acupuncture is familiar to most people these days, its benefits to the complexion are less well-known. Cosmetic Acupuncture is the use of this thousands-year-old discipline specifically for skin rejuvenation and enhancement. It may sound modern or ‘off-label’, but it is not. In a culture that has always equal beauty with amazing skin, royal, wealthy and/or exceptionally well-informed beauties of ancient China understood the value of this precious technique they held in closely-guarded secrecy.

Often called ‘acupuncture facelift’ or ‘facial rejuvenation’, Cosmetic Acupuncture involves placing a relatively large number of fine needles in the face (generally 40 to 50) while a full-body, therapeutic acupuncture treatment is done at the same time. The face, body, inside, outside – they’re all connected after all!

The placement of the needles is determined, as with all skilled acupuncture, in way that is entirely customized to the individual – taking into account both the client’s goals and concerns, and the practitioner’s determinations based upon his/her years of training.

From a western point of view, needling the face increases collagen production and blood flow. From an eastern viewpoint it brings Qi to the face and maximizes the beneficial flow of ‘righteous substances’ (think Qi, blood, pure fluids) within the body that impacts skin health as well as the entire system in general.

A full-body acupuncture treatment is done at the same time to maximize benefits to the skin as well as address any other concerns. Therefore, a full therapeutic intake is done before beginning a Cosmetic treatment or series, just as it would be for any other presenting issue – its basically two-for-one!

After needle placement (which is often felt not at all or very minimally!!) the client relaxes for 40 minutes while the needles ‘work’. Upon removal of the needles, a tui na (Chinese meridian) massage is performed on the face using organic luxury TCM herbal products from our Qi Formularie line, which has been conceived to support the Qi and target specific skin issues in a further customized way. Meditation techniques are shared to help with stress (no way!!!) and mindfulness regarding how the effects of said stress can be addressed to minimize impact on skin and wrinkle formation.
