Cosmetic acupuncture* (also known as facial rejuvenation) is for people who are looking for a natural alternative to reduce the signs of aging and improve inner vitality for a healthy appearance to their face.
Acupuncture provides a non-toxic, non-surgical way of looking and feeling your best at any age. Benefits include:
- A brighter and healthier-looking complexion
- A reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin by increasing circulation to the face, nourishing the skin and stimulating natural collagen production
- Relaxes tension in the facial muscles for a more relaxed face
- Reduces redness
- Helps treat acne
- Improves discoloration from sun damage
- It’s not just a cosmetic process, you also get the benefits of an acupuncture treatment that has been shown to boost the immune system, reduce pain, relax and calm the body
To learn more, watch Rebecca in this presentation on the anti-aging benefits of cosmetic acupuncture.
Initial visits with Rebecca Berkson, who is a licensed acupuncturist and is NCCAOM Board certified in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, are typically 90 minutes long and include a 30-minute consult followed by the first treatment.
Follow-up sessions are 1 hour. It generally takes 6 sessions and 1 month to start building collagen. Many report a glow to the skin after the first session!
It’s recommended to get a series of 12 sessions, with weekly visits initially, and then every other week or once per month for maintenance.
Acupuncture can be a complement to other cosmetic treatments, but people should consult their providers as to how long to wait after fillers, injections, and other dermatological treatments.
* It is recommended that cosmetic acupuncture patients have received a diagnostic exam by a licensed physician within the last 6 months and get a documented recommendation for the treatment.
