Acupuncture is likely one of the longest living forms of medicine in the world. Used for thousands of years in China and the rest of East Asia, acupuncture has become available to most Americans in just the last three decades.

Even more recently, acupuncture is being used to restore vitality and exuberance to the face while promoting systemic health and wellness.

Acupuncture for Facial Rejuvenation is a safe, effective alternative to Botox (a toxin which paralyzes facial muscles). By promoting healthy blood circulation and natural collagen formation, facial acupuncture can:

  • Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lift and tighten the jaw line
  • Even out skin tone
  • Lift the brow line
  • Add definition to the cheek bones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long does it take to see results?

A: While visible results are often achieved during the first visit, lasting results come from a series of 8-10 weekly treatments.

Q: How long do the results last?

A: While results vary greatly from person to person, it is not unusual for patients to experience two to five years of lasting effects. Self-care is key to making sure that your results are sustained. Dietary and lifestyle recommendations are made throughout your course of treatment to help maximize your investment. Monthly or seasonal maintenance treatments are very helpful in extending your results.

Q: When can I get started?

A: As long as you qualify, you may start right away. Same-week appointments are usually available.

Q: What might disqualify me from treatment?

A: Serious illness, hemophilia, a very strong tendency to bruise, uncontrolled high blood pressure, and certain other conditions are not compatible with this therapy. However, standard acupuncture care may still be available to you in some cases.

Q: How does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture differ from a cosmetic facelift?

A: Like a facelift, acupuncture is a medical procedure performed by a licensed health care provider. Unlike a facelift, acupuncture will accentuate your natural beauty. It is not surgery, and will not change your bone structure or make you look like a different person.

Q: How does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture differ from Botox injections?

A: Botox can be an effective medicinal option for some, but it’s value as a cosmetic agent is debatable at best. Botox is literally "the most poisonous substance known." Possible side effects of Botox include drooping eyelid, uneven smile, loss of ability to close the eye – acupuncture has none of these. While Botox eliminates wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles which cause them, acupuncture relaxes the facial muscles naturally and increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage for a healthy glow.

Q: How does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture differ from collagen/filler injections?

A: Acupuncture does not introduce any foreign substances into the facial skin and muscle. Acupuncture promotes the body’s own collagen production. While this is helpful in filling out lines and wrinkles, acupuncture will not make the lips look fuller or larger.

Q: How much does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture cost?

A: Treatments cost $120 each, with a substantial discount for prepayment packaages. See the pricing page for more details.

Payment options include Cash, Check, Debit Cards, and Visa/Mastercard.
