Cosmetic acupuncture, is a totally natural and effective non-surgical way to lessen the appearance of fine lines as well as deeper wrinkles. This highly acclaimed alternative to invasive injections, fillers and chemical treatments involves placing tiny, painless acupuncture needles into various points on the face.
Cosmetic acupuncture works by stimulating collagen production, cell reproduction and boosting metabolism which eliminates fine lines and reduces facial puffiness. It also stimulates blood and lymph circulation to the head therby conditioning the skin and improving muscle tone.

Facial acupuncture is based on the theories of traditional chinese medicine. Synergistic points are used on the arms, legs and body to further strengthen the body's energy, thereby enhancing beauty from the inside out. Improved sleep, energy and digestion are common positive side effects. You will look and feel better.
