Cosmetic Acupuncture

You might feel vital, radiant and youthful on the inside, but does the condition of your skin reflect that?

In the quest for younger skin cosmetic surgery may seem like the only solution to lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, but really there is a much safer and natural answer to attain and maintain a refreshed, lifted and younger appearance without going under the knife.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation is an ancient Chinese medical system incorporating many tools and techniques, which date back as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD).  Cosmetic Acupuncture is now being used world wide as a safe and effective treatment that promotes a fresh-faced appearance while also targeting the underlying causes of aging.

Kristi McNair is a qualified and experienced  practitioner in Cosmetic Acupuncture & Facial Rejuvenation, her experience includes working with well known celebrities.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Research

Cosmetic Acupuncture benefits are well documented considering it is an ancient Chinese beauty secret surviving for thousands of years.  However it has been the topic of modern research also.

A 1996 research report published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture

reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture and Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment.

A comprehensive research study in 2008 by The Affiliated Hospital of Liaoning University, was undertaken to probe the mechanism of Acupuncture in anti-skin aging, the study concluded Acupuncture Surrounding Needling can change aging state of skin possibly by strengthening the activity of fibroblast in skin and increasing the content of soluble collagen. (Lu Y 2008) Jan;28(1):61-4.

A recent Cosmetic Acupuncture study in The Aesthetic Surgery Journal concluded: “… patients are well aware of changes - from an improved sense of well being with a well rested look to significant reduction in wrinkles. Given these clinical results and increasing scientific support Aesthetic Surgeons increasingly are looking at adding the ancient modality of state-of-the-art practice to bring it to the forefront of comprehensive care.”

Kristi’s own clinical experience suggests similar results, with some patients reporting noticeable improvements in just one or two treatments.

Famous celebrities who are reported to have used Cosmetic Acupuncture are: Angelina Jolie, Sean Connery, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and many more.
