Richmond Hill Cosmetic Acupuncture
Cosmetic Acupuncture (CA) is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Acupuncture points on the face create more blood circulation thereby nourishing the skin, oxygenating and moisturizing it from inside out. More circulation enables the body to produce more collagen, giving the skin more elasticity and tightness to help with sagging skin, wrinkles, double chin, etc.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatments
Cosmetic acupuncture is not an instant fix, but may take time for your body to heal itself. Results can often be seen after 3-5 treatments, with a typical treatment plan lasting 10 treatments. The initial treatments include an in-depth health assessment to analyze your body constitution, and how it may be playing a role in your health. Health issues not only affect your organs, but may manifest on your skin, and even on your face. The treatment will include body and facial acupuncture, facial massage, and skin scraping or “Gua Sha”.
Cosmetic acupuncture does not end after the needles are removed. Patients need to take an active role of maintaining their stress levels, take time to exercise and relax, have a balanced and nutritional diet, maintain their health, and avoid things that may degrade their health. Nutritional and lifestyle modifications tips will be provided.
