Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture, facial rejuvenation.

At What’s Good we we believe that true beauty comes from within. We offer cosmetic acupuncture treatments that can help you to feel comfortable in your own skin by optimizing the natural beauty that’s already there. Our expert practitioners have decades of experience and take a holistic approach to diagnosis, assessment, and treatment.

Did you know that cosmetic acupuncture is not just about rejuvenating your skin, but can also address other issues such as muscular tension, headaches, and TMJ? By stimulating specific acupoints on the face and body, we can help to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote relaxation. Published research has shown that facial cosmetic acupuncture can improve facial elasticity, skin moisture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other skin concerns.

What are some of the benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Stimulates Collagen Production

Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates collagen and elastin production, essential proteins responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. This natural boost in collagen helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging, resulting in a more radiant and toned complexion.

Increases Blood Circulation

By targeting specific acupuncture points, this rejuvenating treatment enhances blood circulation to the face. Improved blood flow brings vital nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, promoting a healthy, glowing complexion while reducing puffiness and under-eye circles.

Tightens Facial Muscles:

Cosmetic acupuncture targets and tones facial muscles, helping to lift and tighten sagging areas. This gentle yet effective technique can address concerns such as drooping eyelids, double chin, and jowls, providing a natural facelift effect without the need for invasive procedures.

Promotes Even Skin Tone

Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and age spots can be visibly reduced with facial acupuncture. The treatment helps balance melanin production, resulting in a more even complexion and a reduction in the appearance of dark spots, giving you a radiant and youthful glow.

Improves Skin Texture

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture stimulates the production of new skin cells and accelerates the shedding of dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and more refined skin texture. Say goodbye to rough patches, acne scars, and dullness as your skin becomes supple and revitalized.

Relaxes Facial Tension

Everyday stress and tension can take a toll on our facial muscles, leading to frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and a perpetually stressed appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture helps release tension, providing a deep sense of relaxation and rejuvenation, resulting in a serene and tranquil expression.

Enhances Overall Well-being

Beyond its visible effects on the skin, facial rejuvenation acupuncture promotes balance and harmony within the body, addressing underlying imbalances that can contribute to skin issues. Experience an overall improvement in energy, mood, and vitality as your well-being is uplifted.

But beauty is more than skin deep, and our cosmetic acupuncture treatments can also address underlying issues such as hormonal imbalances, stress, digestion problems, low energy, insomnia, and weight gain. By conducting an in-depth assessment, our practitioners can determine what internal medicine conditions could potentially be contributing to your skin concerns.
