What is a Holistic Beauty Cosmetic Acupuncture session like? 
During your initial 1.5 hour session, we do an in-depth interview and exam. Here you will have an opportunity to talk about your goals and I will come up with an individualized treatment plan for you.  We will also do our first treatment which involves several tiny needles that are inserted into the skin, this signals the body to send fresh blood and energy to the area. We are using acupuncture to stimulate the body's natural process of promoting collagen and elastin production in the face.

For your appointment:

  • Please come with makeup off. Ideally skin is free of foundation/blush etc.

  • Long hair should be kept back with a headband or elastic.

  • Please do not vigorously exercise, use saunas, hot tubs, or drink alcohol prior to your appointment as the vasodilation (dilation of blood vessels) increases chances of bruising.

  • Come hydrated!

After your session:

There's no down time: you can head right back to work or play after your treatment! Most people feel relaxed: the stress of the day has melted away and a pleasant calmness has taken its place, but there is no “set” response. Your body will continue to experience ongoing shifts and changes in the time after treatment and this usually continues for several days as your body absorbs and realigns around “new information.” Please allow the physical and emotional restoration that acupuncture sets in motion to continue by taking it easy after treatment by avoiding anything strenuous: you don’t have to literally lie down or take a nap (although, it’s good if you can); just take it easy. Be good to yourself: drink lots of water, eat a nourishing meal and get a good night’s sleep to get the most out of each treatment. Acupuncture is not a one-shot deal. It works cumulatively, meaning one treatment builds on the next.

How many sessions will I need? 
We have noticed for the best long term results, our average patients do best on the following schedule:

Initially you are seen weekly (or even twice per week) for at least 10 sessions.  Often, at about the 6th treatment you can start seeing visible changes in your face.  The face has a glow to it and skin begins to tighten. At 10 treatments wrinkles and fine lines start filling in.  The face also has a noticeable lift.   Some patients will find they want more treatments, however, once this initial series is complete we begin maintenance sessions. Maintenance session are done monthly or every other month depending on your particular needs & goals.

How long will the effects last?
Patients have found results can last from 3 to 5 years or longer with monthly maintenance.  

Is Cosmetic Acupuncture right for me? (contraindications)

Cosmetic acupuncture is a natural and safe alternative procedure, but it is not for everyone. If you have a serious health condition it is not a good option: people with heart and seizure disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, some pituitary disorders, individuals who have a problem with bleeding or bruising, or currently suffer from migraine headaches are not candidates for cosmetic acupuncture.

Cosmetic acupuncture should also not be done during your pregnancy, a cold or flu, an allergic attack, an acute herpes outbreak or within 3 weeks of Botox, Restylane or Collagen injections. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us, so we can discuss whether you are a candidate for cosmetic acupuncture.

What can Holistic Beauty Cosmetic Acupuncture help with?

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles… they may even disappear.

  • "Level” deeper lines. These deeper lines may never fully go away but they can “fill up” and look softer and less harsh.

  • Minimize the beginnings of jowls. This may not make the waddle under the neck go away but it can definitely define the jawline in women who are just starting to see the sag.

  • Help improve acne and rosacea.

  • Help to soften the skin and make it more vibrant.

  • Help the cheeks get smoother.

  • Bring more consistency to your skin tone.- if your skin tends to have lots of red in it, it may be reduced considerably.

  • Help age spots fade.

  • Help erase those “little hard spots on my face”.

  • Help Wrinkles. Wrinkles on the neckline (the decollete) have disappeared- the vertical lines some women get as a result of sun damage.  

Additional reported benefits of Holistic Beauty Cosmetic Acupuncture include:

  • Hot flashes and or night sweats went away.

  • Eyes looked brighter, to an acupuncturist, this means that the spirit is more balanced.

  • Mild depression has been reversed.

  • Mild anxiety is resolved.

  • Many patients report that their digestion has improved and this directly affects what is going on in the skin and on the face.

  • Patients report having more energy.

  • “I had a headache when I walked in but it was gone when I left!”

  • “My cousin asked me what I was using on my face because it looked amazing without makeup!”
