(aka Natural Botox)
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to improve the look, texture and health of your skin. Acupuncture benefits include softening of expression lines, reducing inflammation and fluid storage, increasing blood flow and brightness, and stimulating collagen growth and cell renewal.
Cosmetic acupuncture is really a two-for-one treatment, as the whole body is treated as well as the face. Beauty is the exterior manifestation of interior health, and you may not look your best when you are feeling unwell. The body acupuncture points clear up other issues, such as digestion, sleep, stress/anxiety, menopausal symptom relief etc. The key to facial rejuvenation acupuncture is to focus on your Overall Health and healthy skin will follow closely behind.
Once your TCM pattern has been determined and specific acu points have been chosen for your treatment, very fine needles will be inserted into points on your body as well as your face.
After resting for 30 minutes, the needles are removed and a brief facial massage is done, followed by cupping or gua sha. Acupuncture facial gua sha or cupping are simple and gentle techniques that increase the circulation and lymphatic flow in your face. The treatment is then ended with 15 minutes under the LED Rainbow Light.
Depending on your skins needs, a typical treatment protocol is 10 treatments, then moving to a maintenance schedule.

I’m happy to carry TOMA, a line of clean skin care products developed by an acupuncture clinic in the US. Made in small batches, this brand is 100% natural, with ingredients grown without pesticides, herbicides or any sort of chemicals. These products are vegan, animal friendly and non hormone-disrupting. The formulations are made with bioadaptive botanicals, and are guided by TCM knowledge, such as using ru xiang (frankincense) oil to support cellular repair.
LED Rainbow Light
Each MN treatment includes 15 min of Rainbow LED light therapy. There are different wavelengths of the visible light spectrum, each corresponding to different colors and penetrating the skin to different depths. The color of the light determines the effect.
Can I Get a Consultation Prior to Treatment?
Of course. I’m happy to offer a free phone consultation to answer any questions and explain what Cosmetic Acupuncture can do for your skin and your health.
