Chinese medicine has long recognized the connection between a woman’s health and her face. The face, just like the rest of the body, contains acupuncture points that become “blocked” and “stagnant” over time, leading to wrinkles and dull, sallow complexions.
Cosmetic Acupuncture uses needles or laser light to stimulate the facial acupuncture points. Each needling or laser treatment, increases blood flow to the face, builds collagen and relaxes the facial muscles. With repetitive treatments, the face relaxes, wrinkles are diminished, and the skin maintains a youthful, healthy glow.
Cosmetic Acupuncture does not “fill” wrinkles immediately like conventional fillers (Botox and restylane), so it is not a procedure for those looking for an instant fix. It is, however, a natural alternative for keeping your face full of light, energy, and vitality, the keys to sustainable beauty.
At ACHIM, we use both Laser Cosmetic Acupuncture and the Mei Zen protocol for Cosmetic Acupuncture. Most patients need a consult to determine which procedure may work better for them.
