While Acupuncture is used to help relieve pain and improve overall health, it is also very effective at helping to improve skin tone, decrease wrinkles, and improve overall facial health. This type of treatment is called Facial Rejuvenation or Cosmetic Acupuncture, and includes using the technology of microneedling.
Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation have a long history, dating back to the Qin dynasty, 221 BC in China. Fast forward to today, we can combine ancient knowledge and experience with modern technology. This is a profound branch of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture which helps to tonify sagging skin, improve skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, remove age spots, reduce or eliminate acne, brighten the skin and take years off–ALL NATURALLY!
Facial rejuvenation involves uses very thin acupuncture needles in strategic muscle groups along the face, and helps to gently improve blood flow, skin tone and decrease fine lines. When combined with body acupuncture, it is also a powerful tool to help decrease systemic inflammation, improve overall health, and reduce stress. Best success comes from 10-12 treatments scheduled twice a week for 5-6 weeks.
Microneedling uses an oscillating machine that penetrates past the epidermis to the dermis, signaling the fibroblasts cells to release and repair collagen. This is a powerful, yet gentle and natural approach to reducing acne, lines, and pockmarks. Treatments must be 4 weeks apart, results from each visit can take up to two weeks to see the full effect. Typical results require 3 treatments over a 3 month period, however, this depends on your goal with treatment, underlying conditions and genetics, of whether you will need more or less than 3 sessions.
Hair Regrowth–Alopecia or Thinning Hair
Hair loss and hair thinning can be a very emotional and scary process, especially for women. Whether it is an unknown alopecia or is hair thinning due to an autoimmune, thyroid/hormonal or environmental toxicity, or after chemotherapy, working to regrow hair is a multi-faceted process, and usually involves Functional Medicine and Acupuncture to get to the root of the internal imbalance and dysfunction that is affecting the hair follicles. In addition to internal medicine, adding Nanoneedling with scalp repair is very effective for most people to help stimulate follicle growth for hair loss and thinning hair, and when combined with lifestyle changes, supplementation and treatment that addressed the root cause, the combination of both can be life changing. If you are new to our office, we recommend that you schedule both a First Office Call (either Acupuncture or Functional Medicine), as well as a Nanoneedling session for best results. If you are already a patient, ask our office today to schedule you a Nanoneedling session. **Nanoneedling scalp treatment is effective as a stand alone, but for best results we recommend the full evaluation and consult.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture: $125 60 minutes
Sessions include body acupuncture, which reduces the effects of stress and inflammation, improves circulation and calms the nervous system, as well as targeted facial needles (non-painful) that help to reduce fine lines/wrinkles, improve skin tone and elastin. These sessions are perfect if you are looking to refresh your face and reduce fine lines without wanting to do anything invasive, or if you are suffering the aging effects of chronic illness. Facial rejuvenation sessions last about an hour, and for best results plan on at least 12 sessions, twice per week for 6 weeks. **Having too much time lag in between sessions can dramatically decrease results, so be sure to set aside 6 weeks where you will not miss sessions.
Microneedling: $325 per session 30 minutes
Uses an oscillating needle device that penetrates past the epidermis (top layer of skin) down to the cellular level of the dermis. By activating this level, we are able to stimulate the fibroblasts, which are cells that produce collagen and elastin. This method helps to provide the benefits of botox naturally, without the injection of toxins. Microneedling alone is done once every 4-6 weeks, and is best to plan for at least 3-6 sessions to get the desired effect.
Why choose an acupuncturist to provide this service? Our medical license allows for the optimal depth of .5mm, which is medical grade use of this device and provides stronger results than can be seen with an esthetician, where the allowed depth is only .3mm.

Best results are seen after 3 sessions, spread 4 weeks apart, and can help take off 5-7 years off your face and last 2-3 years–all naturally!
Nanoneedling: $125 30 minutes
Uses the same oscillating needle device as the microneedling, however, the treatment is done at a lighter depth with smaller needles. This helps to clear the top layer of skin for brighter skin tone, and allows the penetration of the collagen supplement used on the skin during treatment. Creates a youthful glow and healthier skin. Unlike microneedling, there is less downtime to healing, so you can do this treatment safely every week, instead of needing to wait 4 weeks between treatments. Nanoneedling is also not as sensitive as the microneedling, and is more relaxing.
