Cosmetic acupuncture is considered to be an organic way of firming the face – as opposed to more invasive treatments such as Botox. However, sometimes cosmetic acupuncture is used in conjunction with Botox (this all depends on the needs and preferences of the patient). As opposed to traditional acupuncture, which works to de-stress and calm the body, cosmetic acupuncture works towards improving the health of the skin and giving it an overall glow.
How often do you get acupuncture for cosmetic purposes?
Typically, each cosmetic acupuncture session could be 45 minutes to an hour long, and it takes approximately five sessions to see results. A noticeable brightness in the skin has been reported after the first treatment. However, like all treatment sessions, consistency is key to see the full benefits and effects of cosmetic acupuncture. Patients are recommended to complete a series for five to ten sessions at a weekly or bi-weekly basis, then coming every couple of weeks to maintain the positive effects of treatment.
A great benefit of cosmetic acupuncture is that there is no downtime, and that each session leaves you feeling completely relaxed.

How does acupuncture (Traditional Chinese Medicine) help with cosmetic appearence?
Cosmetic acupuncture consisted of using fine needles to balance and relax the body, then using facial specific needles (called dermal needles) to insert in the face. These facial needles, when inserted at specific points in the face, will induce blood circulation, help nourish the skin and increase the natural production of collagen to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also brightening the skin. The main benefit of cosmetic acupuncture is that it provides natural anti-aging benefits.
Acupuncture for cosmetic purposes doesn’t just stop with anti-aging benefits, it can also help with a myriad of other skin conditions such as:
- Sun damage

- Reduces frown lines
