A thorough assessment of your current health and/or skin condition as well as your skincare routine. During this visit, we will provide recommendations for diet, skincare products and regimen and discuss your goals and expectations for your treatment. We may also take some photos in order to record your progress.
Our own blend of expert cosmetic acupuncture techniques customized to target your areas of concern.
For patients with active breakouts, we will use acupuncture points on the body to address any internal imbalances. Acupuncture points on the face may or may not be used depending on the nature of the breakout. For optimal results, this must be combined with our customized dietary guidelines and herbal medicine to soothe the inflammation and prevent future breakouts. We also recommend adding blue light LED light facials to destroy acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface.
For patients with acne scarring, we use our unique facial acupuncture techniques from Korea and FDA-approved SkinPen microneedling to smooth the overall appearance of skin and use localized insertion on severe scarring to bring more blood flow to the area and promote self-healing.
Whether it is pain, hormonal imbalance or digestive problems, we aim to get to the root to the problem and harmonize the balance of energy throughout the body. Some patients may need a course of wellness acupuncture prior to starting their facial acupuncture treatments to optimize the results.
Naturopathic Medicine is a system of medicine that combines natural traditional therapies with modern science to restore and optimize health. Naturopathic doctors are primary care providers whose therapeutic interventions may include clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, behavioral medicine and lifestyle recommendations.
We also provide a wide array of vitamin injections and IV therapy to support your skin and overall health.
Our organic facials nourish and protect the skin barrier with healthy nutrients from botanical sources rather than stripping the skin. Experience a whole new kind of facial where each treatment is customized to suit your needs with farm to beauty skincare products for best results.
PRP microneedling involves applying platelet-rich plasma, which is derived from the patient’s own blood, to the skin during the microneedling procedure. PRP contains growth factors that help to accelerate the healing process and stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin texture, tone, and overall rejuvenation, enhancing the microneedling experience.
Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a safe, gentle and effective treatment to minimize the appearance of fine lines and scarring (especially stubborn acne scars). It causes micro-channels in the skin to allow for up to 3000% more product absorption as well as increased collagen and elastin production. We only use FDA approved Skinpen for our treatments and like our acupuncture needles, our microneedle pen tips are always discarded after each use. We also use LED Red light therapy to accelerate healing after each treatment.
Guasha is a traditional healing technique in Chinese medicine. When used on the face, this will help relieve tension in the muscles, boost blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and detoxify the face. Our guasha is made out of rose quartz stone which is a crystal of unconditional love. It has a calming and healing effect on the body and is thought to attract love.
Cupping is another Traditional Chinese Medicine technique designed to bring circulation of Qi and blood to the skin and muscles by giving your fascia a good stretch. This can help smooth fine lines, relax tight muscles, move and decrease inflammation and strengthen vascular integrity of the face which will help enhance delivery of nutrients to your skin.
Originally researched and developed by NASA, low-level light therapy is the application of light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. It produces a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, and has a wide range of beneficial applications including the treatment of acne, wrinkles and pain conditions.
