Carefully selected points and techniques are used to target muscles and aging skin to eliminate lines, reduce wrinkles and tone the skin. Treatments are very specific to your goals:
- Specific lines and wrinkles of the face are treated. The needles induce collagen and elastin production, eliminating fine lines and reducing wrinkles.
- Distinct facial muscles are targeted. The needles stimulate the muscles to relax or tone.
- Through the toning action of muscles, skin can be firmed, such as the chin, eye lids, jowls, corner of the mouth.
- Relaxing muscles can help to reduce lines, such as lines between the eye brows and on the forehead.
- Beautifying Chinese herbal poultices and masks that have been used for 1000’s of years are incorporated into a Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment. They are made fresh and specific to your individual needs.
