Before After

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.

"The first thing I noticed was the wrinkles between my eyes and on my forehead were almost gone, I didn’t think that was possible. Co-workers commented on my glowing complexion and I feel great. After coming to see Michelle for Cosmetic Acupuncture at least 10 years has been taken off my jaw line."

Treatment Plan

Cosmetic Acupuncture involves treating all aspects of the individual improving overall health to improve the look of the skin. The first treatment includes a full Traditional Chinese medicine consultation and acupuncture treatment. 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.

Course of Treatment

  • The course of treatment is 10 visits with best results achieved with two sessions per week for five weeks.
  • Each visit is approximately one hour.
  • Individuals will respond differently to treatment depending on age and lifestyle.
  • Visible results will often be seen by the seventh treatment.
  • Maintenance may be needed once per month.

“Each Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment was like a day at the spa, I left feeling so relaxed and refreshed. My crow’s feet are gone, my jaw line has firmed up and my overall complexion has improved.

 

Here is a testament to Michelle Hughes of Comox Valley Acupuncture. My age is 84. About 20 years ago I had a face lift which was quite successful at the time and I was very pleased with it however after 15 years one side of my face began to sag, causing a lot of wrinkling. This was quite noticeable and it seemed nothing could be done about it until I read of Cosmetic Acupuncture in my local paper. I decided to give it a try and Michelle agreed to help me. I took 10 treatments of acupuncture around the half way mark it was noticeable that my wrinkles were filling in. At my age this was not an easy task and I did not expect a miracle but am very satisfied with the results. Good luck to Michelle and many thanks from this old lady!!!”
