Acupuncture for Wrinkles

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of increasing the local circulation to the face and stimulating collagen production, which fills out the lines and gives firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Acupuncture is a therapeutic approach which affects several of the human body’s systems simultaneously. Treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterilized, disposable needles into acupuncture points along the body’s energy channels, known as Meridians, which allow for energy transfer within the body. The rationale underlying acupuncture practice is to alleviate the body of stress, pain or discomfort a person may experience stemming from a blockage of or deficiency in its energy.
