Holistic Facial Rejuvenation
Cosmetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation in Phoenix, AZ
Our treatments are SO MUCH MORE than "cosmetic."
Your face reveals your history, your physiology, your emotional well-being, your sleep, your diet, digestion and the whole picture of your health. Holistic facial rejuvenation can help you heal and transform from the inside out instead of just treating the superficial layers.
And who doesn't want a little extra glow, anyway?

What is it?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a holistic system of medicine rooted in Chinese medicine that treats not just damage at the skin level, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles, but also the underlying causes of these conditions. The treatments include facial and body acupuncture and facial gua sha and cupping. We take our treatments to the next level by incorporating sound healing and tuning fork therapies to promote deep relaxation and restorative-level healing.
How does it help?
If your face shows signs of stress, tiredness, aging, past illness or emotional turbulence (whose doesn't?!), this therapy can help. The treatments can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, gently lift facial contours, treat TMJ, reduce the appearance of skin discolorations, and give your skin a healthier glow. You can use the treatments as a monthly facial, but weekly treatments are recommended in the beginning for maximum benefit and results.
Who's a good candidate?
Patients seeking a natural and holistic approach to skin care make good candidates for holistic facial rejuvenation. If you're seeking improvement in the condition of your skin and to maintain a more youthful, nourished complexion and skin tone, this could be a great therapy for you. If you are seeking significant and instantaneous changes in facial contours and deep wrinkles that only a surgical or more invasive approach can provide, you may not be a good fit for this treatment.
Common Questions + Answers about Holistic Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Does the acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, so the treatments are not painful. However, needling on the face can be more tender, particularly when working with fine lines and wrinkles. We take great care to give you the best and most relaxing experience possible.
How often do I need to come in?
We will discuss the best protocol for you during your consultation, but in general, 6-12 treatments are a good starting point to get lasting results. Some patients seeking more of a holistic facial treatment as part of their face care regimen come every 4-8 weeks.
How long do treatments last?
Treatments are one hour, which includes around 20 minutes of relaxing after needles are placed.
What are some reasons that I may not be a good candidate?
Some medical conditions are contraindicated for holistic facial rejuvenation such as unregulated high blood pressure, severe migraine headaches and some chronic illnesses. We also can't work over areas that were treated with Botox or fillers within 2 weeks of you session.
How long does it take to see results?
Patients can notice positive changes after the very first treatment but will come weekly for a number of sessions to reach their desired results.
Can this replace surgical procedures?
This treatment is not like a surgical procedure. If you are seeking a purely cosmetic treatment with immediate results, this will not be a good therapy for you. This is a powerful therapy that works with the body naturally to treat not just the face but all levels of your health.
