Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe and natural way to effectively improve skin tone, elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and improve complexion. This treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the face and body. This process increases blood flow to the face, helps shed dead skin cells, and can stimulate your body's own production of collagen.
The needles stimulate the flow of energy (Qi) to the face and body which can help reduce the tension of facial muscles and improve overall health. This process increases oxygenation levels through microcirculation which aids in detoxification and reduces facial puffiness.
In addition to the facial benefits, points may be added to address headaches, anxiety, stress, and many more concerns that may be affecting your skin. Facial acupuncture can be used to treat dry skin, acne, scarring, rosacea, dark spots, and wrinkles.
What to expect
Even though cosmetic acupuncture is used to treat the skin, acupuncture takes a holistic approach to treatment to determine any obstacles to health, including what may be contributing to your skin concerns. When you come in, we'll do a full intake with health history to determine the most appropriate course of treatment to achieve the best results.

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an effective, safe, minimally invasive, medical grade skin treatment. This treatment is for anyone with concerns regarding hyperpigmentation, fine lines, scarring, acne, pore size, photo damage, or anyone looking to improve their skin tone and texture.
This treatment works by creating controlled damage in the superficial layers of the skin to initiate the body's natural healing cascades. It is a safe technique for darker skin types, where the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is very high with other techniques that damage the epidermis. Because the treatment works with the bodies own healing capabilities, it makes an excellent treatment for anyone who desires natural, subtle, gradual changes.
The treatment is performed after a topical anesthetic is applied, making the procedure very comfortable. The day of the procedure, it's normal to have some redness and feel slightly sunburnt. After 12 to 48 hours, the skin returns to normal. Microneedling has cumulative benefits with the best results seen after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart.
Microneedling can be used on its own or augmented with platelet rich plasma (PRP) for an even more intensive treatment.
30, 45 or 60 minutes starting at $35.
