Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation:
Cosmetic Acupuncture goes more than skin deep.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective non surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. Acupuncture is performed on the face and body to increase local circulation, stimulate collagen and elastin, which helps to fill out lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy glowing complexion. Cosmetic Acupuncture is an all natural procedure without danger of side effects such as swelling, scarring, or a lengthy recovery time.
By treating the entire system, Dr. Kathleen targets the organ imbalances that are reflected on our face in the form of lines, fluid sacks, jowels, and discoloration. So the patient can often enjoy both a rejuvenated face AND improved health!
Acupuncture and massage:

Our muscles become deflated with age, losing their moisture like a dry sponge. Acupuncture restores the natural internal irrigation so the ‘sponge’ is plumped up again and the wrinkles disappear. Treatments include addressing the facial muscles directly because the electro-stimulation of the natural electric charge in the muscle re-establishes the natural flow and the charge/discharge cycle. This enlivens the tissue. Fluids can move through as they did in youth. Kathleen’s PEMF instrument quickens the process of rebuilding skin and muscle tissue, while improving the face’s senses: vision, hearing, brain power, and also alleviating depression, as confirmed in numerous studies!
Imbalances in the kidneys result in bags under the eyes; liver toxicity shows as furrows, hormone imbalance: vertical lines above the mouth; lines along side the mouth show poor digestion. Often herbal medicine, dietary changes and skin care products will be recommended to balance overall health and the appearance of the skin.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects include more delicate skin, improved elasticity of the skin, improvement in skin tone and overall rejuvenation.
