Chinese medical aesthetics (mei rong) has a long history, with documented treatments dating as far back as the Warring States period (475-221 BC). 


We recognize that external symptoms are the result of internal imbalances, so cosmetic acupuncture always includes addressing the whole person--inside and out.  Many people find that as their skin improves, so does their overall wellness (digestion, sleep, tension, circulation, etc). 

We use a number of treatment modalities that are known to stimulate collagen and elastin, nourish facial muscles, increase circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, reduce hyperpigmentation, and more.

Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture can:


Eliminate fine lines

Soften deeper wrinkles

Improve skin texture, color, luster, and appearance

Tone, relax, nourish, and balance muscles

Enhance overall appearance


Improve health


Regulate Organ and Meridian



Reduce physical, mental, and emotional imbalances
