Facial & Cosmetic Acupuncture in Los Angeles
Cindy Albon is certified in Constitutional Facial Rejuvenation and Korean Facial Procedures. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural approach to reverse the aging process and helps skin look younger, smoother, brighter and uplifted.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a great alternative for individuals who want a holistic approach to looking younger while improving their overall health. It is safe, natural and effective alternative to Botox or plastic surgery with less risk, less expense and without the post-treatment downtime. Appearance changes are natural, not as drastic or sudden. It is a great choice for actors, models, musicians and other public professionals, who need to avoid recovery time and prefer a natural look.
How does facial acupuncture work?
Your internal state of health is reflected on your face. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a dual treatment – it is a standard acupuncture session plus facial session. Body points are needled to correct any health issues, reduce stress and promote well-being. If you feel good on the inside, you will look better on the outside!
Special points are selected on the face, scalp and along the hairline to lift and firm. The insertion of tiny intra-dermal needles within wrinkles and lines simulates micro trauma which stimulates elastin and collagen production. Facial acupuncture treatments increase the flow of Qi and blood circulation to the face while simultaneously correcting health imbalances in the body.
what is a cosmetic facial acupuncture session like?
Your facial sessions will start with the body points to anchor your energy. Organic cleansers or toners will be selected for your skin type to prepare your face for acupuncture. After the facial acupuncture, lavender or oxygenated water finishes each treatment to enhance hydration and provide a dewy glow. Arnica will be applied to prevent bruising.
Facial massage with Gua Sha board, jade or dermal rollers may be used with organic serums and oils to firm the neck, contour jawline and provide a natural lift. Wellstream Acupuncture was featured in the special October 2017 Beauty Issue of Allure Magazine in the article “I Tried Gua Sha to Contour My Jawline – Here Are The Results”. This service is an add on to cosmetic acupuncture.
A complete course of treatment is 12 sessions, with each session lasting about 1.5 hours. The effects of cosmetic acupuncture is cumulative, and most patients observe results around the 3rd or 4th session. Faster results are obtained by scheduling 2 sessions per week over 6 weeks. Everyone has unique needs and you may only require a few sessions vs a full course. Once monthly follow-up visits are suggested to maintain results.
Facial results usually last 5-10 years, depending on your age, lifestyle and constitution. Some patients opt for a second course of facial acupuncture to gain additional, longer lasting results.
