Cosmetic Acupuncture is the only healthy option for cosmetic improvements currently available to women and men. Though the procedure is not well known or publicized in Canada, it has been used for centuries in China by Emperors and the wealthy. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a relatively non-invasive procedure that brings about some amazing results that are more than just skin deep. Cosmetic Acupuncture is also the only cosmetic procedure that actually improves your health.
The obvious benefits include having softer, firmer skin; reduction of deeper wrinkles; possible elimination of finer wrinkles; and improvement in jowl lines. Although not visually as dramatic as a surgical procedure, Cosmetic Acupuncture actually has a much more dramatic overall effect as I have seen a number of very healthy “side effects” occur.
Besides the obvious visual changes, patients have reported improved digestion, better quality sleep, reduction of hot flashes, elimination of mild depression and anxiety, improved energy, and overall sense of well-being. So patients leave not only looking younger buy feeling younger and healthier. I think that it is fair to say that this is the only cosmetic procedure that actually improves the health of the patient and that is why I am so passionate about what I do!
From a Western medicine standpoint, Cosmetic Acupuncture works because the needling causes micro-traumas in the skin to which the body can respond by increasing blood flow and the production of collagen and elastin for wound healing. The needling, which is done at the level of the dermis, also may stimulate neurotransmitter production. From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, Qi and Blood are being brought to the face, Qi is being lifted, and the body’s energetic systems are being put into balance. This is why the wonderful side effects occur. The procedure is very low risk because the needling is so superficial; occasionally bruising occurs.
Besides the needling part of the procedure, I will talk with you about skin care, nutrition, and supplements that help you get and maintain the best results possible. The procedure is ten treatments that are scheduled twice a week for five weeks. Typically, results last from 3 to 5 years.
