Cosmetic AcupunctureCosmetic acupuncture is an effective way to help remove facial lines and wrinkles from the face. The process involves inserting tiny, thin needles into precise facial spots to stimulate facial muscles and reduce lines. This is a painless procedure that protects the integrity of the skin. The needles simulate collagen production along with increase circulation to the area, thus a glowing complexion.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated in China with cosmetic facial acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. Effects included: improvement in skin texture and colouring, increased elasticity, reduction of wrinkles and overall rejuvenation, not merely confined to the face.
Dr. Jessica Gurske will assess your skin and come up with an individualized treatment plan to best suit your needs and goals. The course of the treatment can consist of 10-12 sessions done once a week to attain the optimal results. You may notice differences after one or two session, but typically the effects are noticed after 5-6 sessions. After the initial course of treatment, maintenance should be done once every 6 weeks, depending on the individual.
