Microneedling & Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation
Aesthetics & Longevity
Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is performed using a premium Class 2 medical device with a single use stainless steel needling tip. It creates painless micro lacerations in the skin which activate keratinocytes to increase the production of collagen and elastin. The procedure increases absorption of products by 3,000%! Hyaluronic acid is used during the treatment and a non-synthetic Chinese herbal serum is applied to address the patient's skin presentation (acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment). 4-6 sessions recommended, results last 5 years!
Facial acupuncture is performed with regular acupuncture needles inserted into the face to target sagging, fine lines, discoloration, and tight, dehydrated facial muscles. Lifts, firms, and tightens. 12 sessions recommended.
Medicupping Vacuum Therapy & Traditional Fire Cupping
Not your standard Chinese cups! A medicupping vacuum machine is used which controls the amount of suction and allows for greater surface areas to be cupped, including the face. Softens tight muscles and restricted fascia, loosens adhesions and lifts connective tissue, brings hydration and blood flow to body tissues, moves deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drains excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. Excellent for Bell's Palsy and athletic musculoskeletal issues.
