Cosmetic Acupunture

offered by Dr. Marni Ross, ND

Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a non-surgical face-lift that has been shown to be effective in reducing the signs of aging.  This is achieved with both facial treatment and by treating the underlying causes of why an individual is aging a certain way.

Based on the theory of Chinese Medicine, it involves the insertion of very thin, disposable needles into acupuncture points in the face.  This superficial insertion will stimulate both blood and energy to the face, which will nourish and moisten the skin. It also increases collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin producing a healthy, glowing complexion.

What are the benefits of Cosmetic Acupunture?

  • Reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increases collagen production
  • Helps to eliminate and reduce bags under the eyes
  • Improves hormonal acne
  • Decreases the tendency toward sagging and jowls
  • Improves facial color
  • Reduces double chins
  • Tightens the pores
  • Helps to lift dropping eyelids
  • Moisturizes the skin by the increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face

What is the treatment protocol?

For best results, ten to twelve one hour sessions are recommended however, results will be noticeable after only six to seven treatments.  Each treatment involves the insertion of some acupuncture needles on the hands and legs to start (since cosmetic acupuncture is a whole body treatment) and then Dr Ross will begin to work on the face using very fine, specialized needles.

This procedure will benefit anyone who wants to delay the process of aging and wants to look and feel younger.  If you are interested in giving it a try, Dr Ross is now offering free 15 minute Cosmetic Acupuncture appointments.
