Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been related to the manipulation of the energy points on the body to balance and to remove blockages in the meridians (channels of blood and energy), in order to achieve health and to prevent diseases. By following these principles Cosmetic Acupuncture should increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

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