Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are the benefits of an acupuncture facial?
An acupuncture facial will provide rejuvenation, brighten the skin, and reduce wrinkles.
The treatments improve muscle tone, dermal contraction, increase collagen production,
tighten pores, and increase local circulation of blood and lymph around the face.
Participating in exercise and maintaining a healthy diet/lifestyle will help contribute to
the effectiveness of the treatments.

It takes about 8-10 sessions, 1-2 times per week for 60 minutes to see optimum results.

4. What are the side effects of an acupuncture facial?

5. Who can receive an acupuncture facial?
Anyone of any age can receive an acupuncture facial. Some acupuncturists suggest using
acupuncture facials as a preventative treatment for clients who are in their late 20’s.
6. What happens when I am done with the 10 sessions?
After you have completed the 10 sessions, you are in the maintenance stage and can
receive treatment every 4-8 weeks to keep up with the results.
7. How does it work?
The acupuncture facial needles puncture the skin and create positive microtraumas. From
these positive microtraumas, the body goes in to repair mode, which stimulates the
lymphatic and circulatory systems. These systems work together to deliver oxygen and
nutrients to the skin cells, therefore nourishing the skin from the inside out. This repair
mode also stimulates the production of collagen, which improves elasticity of the skin
and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
