    A Non-Surgical Facelift...boring History

    Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

    According to the Traditional Oriental Medicine (TCM), the growth and development of the human body, the physiological function of the internal organs, circulation of the blood and distribution of the body fluids are all depend on promoting effect of Qi (Vital Energy).

    Deficiency or imbalance of Qi impairs these functions and thus produces the pathological changes such as hypo function of the internal organs, retarded growth, impairment of the blood circulation and retention of the body fluids (edema).

    TCM also indicates that many meridians either begin or end on the face along with huge network of the blood vessels, which makes the face the most noticeable place for the signs of physiological and pathological changes in the body. Lack of sufficient vital energy in the body for instance reduces the circulation of Energy, Blood and Body fluids in the face, causes pale complexion, wrinkles and dark circles around the eye, etc.

    Lack of sufficient Qi also can cause the retention of fluids and consequently result in Edema which can take all over the body causing obesity (over weight) or on some part of the body such as face, (puffy face for example) or lower limbs, etc.

    The appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face, after certain age, is a normal phenomenon. But unfortunately lots of us develop wrinkles, double chin, sagging skin, and sallow complexion, dark circles around the eye and so on prematurely due to external factors such environmental causes or lifestyle, or being caused by chronic illnesses.

    The good news is that Cosmetic Acupuncture, along with moderate changes to the life style, can reduce or eliminate the existing wrinkles and other symptoms as well as it helps to prevent or slow down the development of the above concerns.

    What is the course of treatment?
