Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment

Non-Surgical Face Lift!

Cosmetic or Facial Acupuncture is a natural approach to anti-aging, beauty, and skin rejuvenation. It has gained popularity in recent years as people look for alternatives to Western aesthetics (Toxic facial injections, fillers) and plastic surgery due to the potential adverse side effects that range from permanent facial paralysis, botulism, and skin necrosis to death. In contrast, Cosmetic Acupuncture, a Natural Medicine approach to facial rejuvenation, is very low-risk and short-term. Bruising at the insertion site, soreness, and pain at the insertion site are among the most common side effects. 

This ancient Asian Beauty Secret is still practiced across Asia today and has become a global holistic medicine sensation for fighting the aging process. The treatment focuses on the health of the skin and diminishing signs of aging. However, the entire body is treated, as the patient’s underlying health and wellness will appear through the face.

Cosmetic Acupuncture uses multiple types of needles: intradermal (tiny), ½-inch ultra-thin needles, and 1-inch ultra-thin needles. These are all sterile and disposable. 

The mechanisms of action of needling the face and body for facial rejuvenation are

  1. Bringing more circulation to the dermis 
  2. Increasing Qi (energy) flow through the Acupuncture Channels of the face and body
  3. Making minor traumas in the dermis to induce collagen and elastin production
  4. Balancing the energy flow throughout the body of the patient
  5. Stimulate lymphatic drainage from the face
  6. Boost the immune systems to reduce inflammation and stimulates apoptosis

All acupuncture treatments at AcuMed Wellness start with an intake. Dr. Kitt will evaluate your overall health from an Eastern Medicine perspective. She will assess all of your major organ systems. Discuss your rejuvenation goals and make treatment recommendations. Expect dietary and supplementation input, blood work may be ordered, herbal prescriptions, and skincare product evaluation.  

Not everyone is a candidate for Facial Acupuncture. It is not recommended for people taking blood thinners or who have uncontrolled hypertension. Traditional Chinese Medicine can help with those conditions and also help with face and body rejuvenation. The evaluation will allow Dr. Kitt to decide if Cosmetic Acupuncture is right for you. Think of it this way. If your car engine is making weird noises and leaking oil everywhere, do you give it a paint job first? Or do you have the engine fixed? After the engine has been repaired it may be an excellent time for a Paint Job! 

Dr. Kitt will develop a treatment plan that will involve photos (HIPAA protected), marking on a face map the areas to be treated, the quantity and frequency of visits, types of products to be used, dietary changes, supplementation requirements, and enhanced modalities to be used:

  1. Facial Cupping
  2. Facial Gua Sha
  3. Light Therapy
  4. Micro-needling/Nano-needling P-CIT
  5. Facial Injection therapy
  6. Body Injection therapy
