Cosmetic acupuncture is a cutting edge, centuries-old procedure.
The craze over cosmetic acupuncture reemerged in Hollywood last year. Stars such as; Kim Kardashian, Gwyenth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Sean Connery, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, and many more swear by cosmetic acupuncture. There is no mystery why. It is a safe alternative to popular facial rejuvenation techniques such as botox injections, laser therapy, and other aesthetic services.
This anti-aging treatment combines techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern science.
The true secret to effective treatment lies just beyond the first layer of the skin! An acupuncture needle inserted into specific areas where mastocytes congregate which increases the release of collagen in that area. Mastocytes are white blood cells that carry around a plethora of important materials. When an acupuncture needle disrupts these cells it causes the mastocytes to dump their contents - collagen being the primary substance. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our bodies and is the primary substance that holds together our skin and connective tissue. Collagen is like the glue that keeps us together.
Acupuncture needles cause a "micro-trauma".
Your body responds to these tiny injuries by sending its immune resources to the face. This increases the benefit of tissue healing, reducing dark spots, and supporting healthier skin in general. A "micro-trauma" can be incredibly beneficial! We have a special device that forces your body to continue to make and distribute natural collagen over time. And it feels great!
Towards the end of the session, we hook up an electrical stimulation machine to the needles. This scientifically advanced machine is set at a specific setting that research shows induce the most amount of collagen production. We insert the needles below the skin and connect the device so the electrical current at the proper depth. This is much stronger than topical microcurrent treatments!
We give you spa experience plus medical grade benefits. Additionally, we provide quality serums that are all-natural. During the treatment, we use a rejuvenating green tea or chamomile eye compress to help reduce the puffiness around the eyes. Hyaluronic acid and collagen serum are used during the treatment to help the most superficial part of the skin reap maximum benefit.
To conclude the session we perform traditional Chinese cupping to gently move all those amazing anti-inflammatory cells to target areas. Cupping feels wonderful. It's known to help tighten and lift saggy skin. GuaSha, also known as scraping or Graston is used in areas where the skin is rough or there are scars.
We don't just fill your wrinkles, we help your body produce it's own collagen so that your skin can be back to its youthful appearance naturally!
