The effects include:"The skin becomes delicate, improvement of elasticity, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation."

Other likely results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; increased collagen production, muscle tone, and dermal contraction; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improving of hormonal balance to help acne; reduction of stress evident in the face-bringing out the innate beauty and radiance of an individual.

How does it work?
The meridians are utilized that either end or begin at the face to stimulate and balance the energy and at the same time treat the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process. This involves the insertion of hair-thin disposable needles into specific areas on the face, ears, hands and legs. The needles are inserted into the energy pathways or meridians to improve the flow of qi(energy). As the movement of energy improves, a greater amount of energy and blood are circulated to the face, nourishing, hydrating, toning and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.

While cosmetic acupuncture is not a replacement for surgery, acupuncture is an excellent alternative. It is far less expensive than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. This is unlike surgery, which may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration. There is no trauma from acupuncture and if it does not suit you then you can stop with no ill effects. The treatments are specific to the individual's goals and health conditions and can be modified during the course of treatment to suit individual patients.
