Cosmetic acupuncture works by stimulating your body’s natural healing response. A wrinkle in the skin is formed by the furrowing of collagen. Very thin, sterile needles are inserted at the site of the furrow to lift and fill in the area to encourage the body to produce natural collagen thus smoothing the area. Sagging skin can be counteracted by stimulating and strengthening the muscles of the face.
We also incorporate low-level-light therapy using the Celluma PRO. Low-level-light therapy or photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. Patients or clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment.
