Acupuncture Face Lift

Facial Acupuncture-Natural Face Lift!


Known as Natural Face Lift! The concept of this non-surgical cosmetic treatment is to obtain natural younger and healthy skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles only by using the finest and hair-like needles to stimulate the meridian in order to increase the blood circulation, relax or tighten the facial muscles, enhance collagen production and tone for a vital and youthful facial appearance. 

This procedure allows the skin to be nourished, oxygenated and moisturized from the inside out. Additionally, the increased production of collagen tightens the skin. Hence, the treatment improves the complexion and elasticity of the skin.  During each treatment, medical acupuncture is used, meaning that body needles are placed to work on stress levels, pain, insomnia or anything else that is currently bothering the patient. This helps immensely in the outcome of radiant skin as the body is all connected.  


Facial acupuncture is an ancient healing art that has been practiced in China for emperors and empresses as a beauty ritual for at least 5,000 years, and is currently all the rage among Hollywood’s elite, and its popularity is understandable.  It promises a more youthful appearance with no downtime, no anesthesia, no harmful chemicals or toxins injected and no going under the knife.

Facial Acupuncture is extremely effective in facial-lifting: inner wrinkle, forehead wrinkle, wrinkles on the eyes, nose, and around the lips.

A 1996 report in the "International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture"  reported that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation not just confined to the face. A typical facial acupuncture course of treatment consists of 8-12 sessions, but you can have as many or few as you choose.

No, it is nothing that you would expect.  The most popular question asked of this treatment is the assumption of discomfort because needles are used.   There is no need to worry since these needles are not anything like the ones you are used to seeing at the doctor’s office. They are so tiny and thin that it’s hard to even refer to them as needles.  They are about the width of a thread and feel like a horse hair or a thin bristle on a brush. Due to their size, they are barely felt by the patient. In fact, 41 acupuncture needles can easily fit into one needle used by a doctor. Of course, the skill of the acupuncturist is important.


No, there are no side effects.  This is so because cosmetic acupuncture  is natural and uses no fillers or harsh chemicals.  Actually, the patient is left feeling relaxed, fresh and feeling good with a strengthened immune system.  There is no downtime, no puffiness, no swelling, no drugs, no allergic skin reactions and no injections. In fact, directly after the treatment, the patient can do just about anything and there are no marks or redness upon leaving the office.

Why Choose Cosmetic Acupuncture Over Other Treatments?

Long-term radiant health of your body is the most important reason to go with cosmetic

acupuncture.  With Botox, some of the risks may include allergic reactions, possibly paralysis of surrounding nerves, which impair natural facial expressions.  With fillers, patients commonly experience puffiness, swelling, bruising and extended bed rest and downtime. The same commonly holds true with chemical peels and laser treatments. With cosmetic surgery, many risks are involved such as anesthesia complications, a long recovery with days to weeks of discomfort, nerve damage to the face, allergic reactions to the drugs and scarring just to name a few.  Cost is a large factor to consider.  Botox and fillers are usually in the ballpark of $10,000 over a few years and the same with expensive peels and lasers because they have to be done on a continual basis to keep up the results. Facial surgical procedures can cost $30,000 to $100,00 after all is said and done. The key point to remember is that cosmetic acupuncture is not a “band-aid” approach to your skin, Facial acupuncture is rejuvenating from the inside out, since the collagen built has been produced by your body, your results will last for longer periods, and the cost is minimal in the long run.

A general course of 10 treatments is done per area of the face. Usually after a few treatments a patient notices some changes. Around the 7th or 8th treatment, the collagen starts to kick in and wrinkles start diminishing. After this, a maintenance of one treatment a month is done depending on the age of the patient.





To explain acupuncture in a nutshell, it is viewing every part of your body as a whole.  So when your face is getting needles, your body is as well to enhance the results; by placing needles into body points that will balance your hormones, stress, digestion, sleep and immune system, your skin will start to glow.  That means that treating the face is part of it and treating the rest of the body completes it.  When your entire body is in balance, so is your skin.  




Many patients choose to use cosmetic facial acupuncture to take care of those pesky fine to medium wrinkles and may possibly choose to go the route of Botox or other fillers to take care of those stubborn deep wrinkles. In fact, the cosmetic acupuncture treatments will help to prolong the life of the Botox.  So this means that a patient will be able to make fewer trips to the doctor a year. The patient will be saving time, money and fewer possible side effects.
