Acupuncture

Acupuncture originates from China and has been practiced there for thousands of years.

In theory, acupuncture treatment is said to work by regulating a flow of energy in the body called qi, or chi, a central tenet to TCM. Disruptions in the flow of qi are thought to be responsible for all disease. Acupuncture stimulates points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing the qi. The qi travels through channels called meridians.

Acupuncture aims to correct imbalances of the qi and restore health through stimulation. The needles are inserted through the skin at points along the meridians of the body.

Acupuncture involves insertion of dry needles into the skin at specific locations called acupuncture points. Acupuncture is performed by certified practitioners and physicians to treat certain medical disorders.

There are up to 400 different acupuncture points which are specific for different diseases and disorders.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture, a system of healing that focuses on improving overall wellbeing, is based on ancient Chinese theories of the flow of qi (energy). Acupuncture, inserting special needles into acupoints (specific points on the body), stimulates and enhances the free flow of qi, regulating the energetic balance of the body.

Treatment involves the use of super-fine needles to target any problem areas on your face and neck and to address any underlying health issues that may be contributing to these problems. The needles encourage nutrient-rich blood flow and stimulate muscle activity and toning and can also encourage collagen growth. The needles are left in place for 20 to 30 minutes. Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe procedure; rare, and minor, side effects include slight bruising or spot bleeding at the needle site.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Research has shown that a Cosmetic Acupuncture facelift can last 3-5 years. It is important to understand that the aging process continues during this time. Diet, lifestyle and illnesses can affect the length of the results. When a patient experiences a dramatic event in their life they can undergo a few treatments to help restore balance.

If you've already had plastic surgery, Cosmetic Acupuncture is a good adjunct therapy to help the healing process, soften scars and improve blood and qi flow to the area around the surgical site as well as surrounding areas. In addition, if surgery has been recent it has been found that acupuncture can improve healing of scars and help you feel your energetic best in a shorter period of time.
