    Because acupuncture is believed to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen fibers, improve circulation, and relax muscles, it has been used throughout Asia for centuries as a means to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful look.  For us Westerners, even those toiling in the heart of Union Square, this has only recently become a recognized method for skin restoration and facial rejuvenation—a practice now known as cosmetic or aesthetic acupuncture.

    According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, the appearance of the face is a representation of the health and balance within a person’s internal organs, so as these organs are strengthened the face shows improvements accordingly.  This is why cosmetic acupuncture goes far beyond aesthetic repair.  Cosmetic acupuncture treatment uses super-fine needles to target underlying health issues that may be contributing to a deficient facial appearance. Furthermore, the needles are placed into problem areas on the face and neck, for the treatment of:

    • fine lines and wrinkles
    • acne scarring
    • sagging facial muscles
    • reduction of puffiness
    • promote circulation to facial muscles
    • stimulate muscle firming and toning
    • encourage collagen growth, which all contribute to a more youthful and healthy-looking appearance.
