FACIAL REJUVENATION / ACU FACIAL
A holistic and natural approach to beauty, acupuncture has been used in a cosmetic context for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This is a non-invasive treatment and surgical alternative using acupuncture needles and the body's natural ability to heal itself .
By using points on the face and body, ultra fine needles are used to activate muscles in the face and neck, and increase circulation of blood and lymph. This helps to improve the complexion by creating a youthful appearance and balances the body, mind, and spirit leaving you beautiful inside and out.
Cosmetic acupuncture can achieve and help with conditions and concerns such as:
Minimize or erase fine lines and wrinkles
Firm facial muscles
Smooth and brighten skin texture
Increased production of elastin and collagen
COLLAGEN INDUCTION & MICRONEEDLING
Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a safe, gentle and effective treatment to minimize the appearance of fine lines and scarring, and is a great alternative to Botox. It causes micro-channels in the skin to allow for up to 3000% more product absorption as well as increased collagen and elastin production.
Microneedling can help with conditions and concerns like:
FACIAL CUPPING & GUA SHA
Both of theses techniques are based on TCM principles working on multiple levels igniting the skin’s natural healing power.
Cupping helps circulation of Qi and blood to the skin and muscles by releasing fascia in the skin to smooth fine lines, relax tight muscles, move and decrease inflammation and strengthen vascular integrity of the face which will help enhance delivery of nutrients to your skin.
Gua Sha helps relieve tension, firms and tones the muscles, boost blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and detoxify the face, contour jawline and provide a natural lift.
Celluma LED LIGHT THERAPY
Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to treat a wide variety of conditions safely. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes.
The red light penetrates deep into the skin to increase blood flow and oxygenation, while also promoting cell growth and regeneration. The result is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improved skin texture and tone. The red light also helps to reduce inflammation in an affected area, which reduces swelling and pain.
The blue light penetrates deep into the skin, where it activates the porphyrins produced by acne-causing bacteria. The activation of these porphyrins creates a photodynamic reaction that destroys the bacteria, preventing future breakouts. Additionally, blue light therapy reduces inflammation and helps to regulate sebum production, which further contributes to the prevention of acne.

HERBS & NUTRITION
Beauty is not only about what is on the outside but the inside!
All the creams, mask, fillers or surgeries will not fix what is happening on the inside of your body. The goal is to treat the root of the problem, not the symptom.
TCM theories tell us that things like acne can be from damp heat in the body, often due to diet. The same theory applies to many dermatological problems.
By making adjustments to your diet that are relative to your current condition and adding in specific custom herbal formals, many skin issues can be resolved and a healthy glow can shine for many years to come.
