Cosmetic Acupuncture combines the wisdom of traditional Chinese acupuncture with specialized facial acupuncture to help you look and feel healthy and rejuvenated. It is the truest form of anti-ageing medicine because it works internally to optimize your health while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of your skin. This treatment is covered by most extended health plans if you have acupuncture coverage.
BOOST the results by adding on 20 minutes of LED Light Therapy.
BENEFITS of RED LED LIGHT: it works by using bright light-emitting diodes (originally developed by NASA) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin where your collagen, elastin, and other crucial skin health components reside. Red light LED stimulates cellular activity, including the fibroblasts that produce collagen, and provides protection against damage, and helps heal a variety of skin problems. Red LED Light Therapy leads to the production of what is called ATP – which is the energy the cells need to function optimally keeping your skin healthy, and youthful. Essentially your skin needs ATP to slow down ageing. You can also find ATP in our Empowered Collagen Revival Serum along with many other high-quality powerhouse ingredients.
BENEFITS of BLUE LED LIGHT: blue LED light therapy reduces breakouts, inflammation and promotes oxygen in the skin for healing. It target these oil glands (sebaceous glands) making them less active. Blue LED light kills Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes), the bacteria that live below the surface of the skin and is responsible for acne. Great for deep cystic acne that does not respond to topical products. Our Forever Clear BBL Acne Treatment is also a great more advanced option for deep cystic acne.
Chinese Medicine for Your Body, Mind and Skin
Cosmetic Acupuncture is both preventative and corrective, so you can begin at any age. Beginning these treatments in your late twenties or early thirties can literally slow down the ageing process by boosting your collagen and improving the health of your skin and body. If you are in your forties, fifties, or sixties, these treatments will turn back the hands of time by softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in brighter skin and a more youthful overall appearance.
Merging it with other treatments for enhanced results
Cosmetic Acupuncture is can be helpful in the treatment of acne, rosacea, sun damage, dehydration and other skin concerns when combined with topical skincare and other treatments at our clinic.
Unlike treatments such as botox injections, Cosmetic Acupuncture addresses the appearance of the entire face. The aim of Cosmetic Acupuncture is not to eliminate lines and wrinkles, but rather to increase the health of the skin, while slightly firming and brightening the complexion. It is a great option for people who are hesitant to undergo injections, and also for those who have targeted botox treatments and want to brighten up the appearance of the entire face. Clients have reported a need for less botox injections when undergoing cosmetic acupuncture sessions.
The Results are In…
While you can expect a brighter complexion after just one Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment, a series of treatments is recommended in the beginning to obtain optimal results. To maintain the results, it is recommended that you have a treatment every four to six weeks to keep you looking fresh. Your Acupuncturist will also educate you on proper skincare using natural, but active cosmeceuticals. It is equally important that you topically feed your skin vitamins, minerals, and nutrients on a daily basis. After all, the skin is the largest, and the only visible, organ – so it needs proper care!
