Facial acupuncture has been used by royalty dating from the 7th - 13th centuries. These non-surgical techniques have been developed to reduce the signs of aging, and to increase overall health.  To look your best, you must feel your best. This holistic approach to beauty helps to repair damage to your body and skin, resulting in renewed vitality.  Facial acupuncture helps to alleviate fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, sagging and skin discoloration, while simultaneously supporting health and wellbeing.

Facial acupuncture needles tighten the pores, improve muscle tone, and increase collagen production.  Tiny needles are inserted into specific facial and body points, working to increase local circulation of blood and lymph, and stimulate the body’s natural processes of cell regeneration.
