Using our specialized techniques, we effectively strengthen the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, enhance muscle tone, and improve complexion, resulting in a revitalized and more radiant appearance. After dedicating himself to acupuncture for over two decades, Kirk found his passion for cosmetic acupuncture ignited. Eager to expand his expertise, he pursued enrollment in the prestigious FACE program at Pacific College. This exclusive educational program specializes in a wide array of facial techniques, ranging from traditional to cutting-edge. By harnessing the power of acupuncture, Gua Sha, cupping, LED therapy, microcurrent, and more, these multifaceted techniques work synergistically to revitalize the skin. The transformative effects of this approach are remarkable. Through fortifying the skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving muscle tone, and enhancing the complexion, we accomplish these results without resorting to fillers or invasive procedures. Our ultimate objective lies in achieving facial harmony by catering to each individual's unique constitution, allowing their inner beauty to radiate outward. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture surpasses the mere superficiality of traditional beauty treatments. It embraces a holistic approach that encompasses the enhancement of overall well-being. By considering the interconnection of the body, mind, and spirit, we not only foster a more youthful appearance but also promote a profound sense of inner balance and vitality.

Experience the transformative effects of micro needling with our recommended course of 4 or more monthly treatments, yielding long-lasting results that can span years. Rest assured, our procedure is safe for individuals with dark skin tones. During a microneedling session, the following steps are typically taken: Initial consultation: Before the treatment begins, we conduct an intake process that includes taking before photos and discussing your main focus. We also go over your health, lifestyle, and skin history, including tongue and pulse diagnostics, to understand any imbalances in your system. Set-up: Our microneedling sessions are designed to provide a relaxing experience similar to a massage. You'll be asked to undress to your comfort level and settle between soft sheets on a heated, padded massage table. Skin preparation: We start by cleansing your skin and applying a light numbing cream to the targeted area. While the cream takes effect, we address any additional health concerns, check your tongue and pulse, and apply body and ear acupuncture points to support your treatment and promote relaxation. Microneedling procedure: After removing the numbing cream, we prepare the skin with toner and serum before commencing the microneedling process. This step is generally quick, and most clients report experiencing little to no pain. Soothing mask and massage: Following the microneedling, we apply a soothing and cooling sheet mask. While the mask works its magic, we provide a lymphatic draining chest, neck, and scalp massage to enhance the overall experience and benefits of the treatment. We prioritize the use of toxin-free, cruelty-free, plant-based, and organic skincare products whenever possible. Treatment plan and maintenance: Depending on your goals, achieving optimal results may require multiple sessions spaced one month apart. For recurring concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, or dark spots, single tune-up visits every 6 months or another series of treatments may be necessary. Acupuncture facials and nano-needling can also be performed between microneedling sessions for added benefits. Results and longevity: Visible improvements can be observed as early as two weeks after the treatment, although it may take up to a month for complete cell turnover. With proper care, lifestyle adjustments, and routine tune-up visits, results can last up to 5 years for recurring concerns. In the case of scars, results can be permanent. Please note that the specific steps and protocols may vary between practitioners. It's always advisable to consult with a qualified professional to determine the best approach for your individual needs and goals.
