What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?


What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Using acupuncture needles on specific points on the face to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture - also known as Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation or Acupuncture Facelift - has been widely performed throughout the world and the United States in the past decade. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a gentle, natural, relaxing and well-proven therapy for improving the radiance, elasticity and natural beauty of the skin. During treatment, small acupuncture needles are placed into specific points in the body and the face.

How does it work?

Facial Acupuncture reduces wrinkles by increasing collagen production and helps to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. This effect is reinforced by improving muscle tone and dermal contraction. Inserting needle into the skin stimulates cells to lay down new collagen fibers and elastin around needle sites. A rejuvenating and tightening action occurs as a result. The needle also stimulates blood circulation which improves color and brings more anti-inflammatory substances to the area.  These effects normally become apparent within a few treatments. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles will be significantly improved.

What is the recommended protocol for Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Optimal outcome is achieved with an initial 10-session treatment, followed by a maintenance treatment every 3 to 6 months. Timing of maintenance treatment depends on your skin condition. Initial treatments are performed twice a week for 5 consecutive weeks. Every session lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Some patients with severe sun damage, heavy smokers or heavy drinkers will need more than ten treatments to get optimal results.

How long do results from Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment last and how much does it cost compared to other cosmetic procedures?

Results from cosmetic acupuncture may last up to 3 to 4 years with maintenance treatments, while other invasive cosmetic procedures such as Botox or dermal fillers last up to 6 months and need to be repeated.  Also, the cost of Facial Acupuncture is far less when compared to other rejuvenating methods. In addition, there are no side effects involved with Cosmetic Acupuncture and it is completely non-invasive. Because of all these advantages, Cosmetic Acupuncture is becoming the safest and most beneficial method for facial rejuvenation.

The average cost for a session of Cosmetic Acupuncture ranges from $80 to $120, while other cosmetic procedures cost a lot more. Typical minimum cost of injectable dermal fillers is $450 and maximum cost is $1,600 per treatment with the average of $900 nationwide. The costs of chemical peels are higher, some reaching $6,000. Rejuvenation from a Facelift surgery goes even higher and can easily cost somewhere between $12,000 to $20,000 with general anesthesia and facility fees.

Find the right Acupuncturist

When searching for a practitioner, first try to find a board-certified Acupuncturist in your state. After shopping around, choose one who has all the answers for you. In addition, being trained in a medical school or a western medicine center gives the practitioner the ability to perform the procedure with minimum risk of damaging nerves and arteries throughout the body.
