Cosmetic acupuncture is a protocol that involves needling at specific points on the face to help move Qi properly through the facial channels. The needles are very fine (picture a cat whisker – they are even smaller) and are inserted very shallow, so the tip of the needle goes into the dermal layer of the skin, to stimulate the production of collagen.
Recommended Treatment Course

A typical course of treatment is 1 to 2 times a week for 5 to 10 weeks, or until desired results are achieved. Then maintenance is suggested once a month as prevention, or as needed.
