HOLISTIC SKINCARE

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

  • Bells palsy

  • 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.

LED LIGHT THERAPY

LED light therapy naturally stimulates collagen production in the skin leaving skin smoother, with reduced fine lines and wrinkles, an even skin tone, and reduced redness and discoloration. 

It works by stimulating cellular activity to help produce collagen and elastin, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin a plump look. It can even treat more complex conditions like sun damage, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema,  stretch marks, acne and acne scars.


LED light therapy uses 4 different colors to address a variety of conditions and concerns.

  • Red light: Anti-aging, collagen production

  • Blue light : Treats acne, reduces inflammation

  • Green light : Promotes wound healing, evens pigmentation

  • Yellow light: Reduces redness, help rosacea and sunburn

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.
