While currently practicing at a reduced capacity at Points Of Health Acupuncture to adhere to CDC guidelines I encourage those practicing social distance, or who live outside the area, to reference the Virtual Offerings page for more spacious options. I fully believe in the broad scope of this medicine and the possibilities that exist with virtual consultations and herbal medicine.

microneedling + cosmetic acupuncture

Microneedling is an effective, non-toxic and non surgical modality for facial rejuvenation. Simply put microneedling is the use of very fine needles at the surface of the skin to promote the production of collagen, the breakdown of discoloration and scars and increase the absorption of products by 2000%, all while preserving the integrity of the outermost layer of the skin. Safe and effective, results last for 3-5 years after a treatment series. 

We use concentrated Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal hyaluronic acid serums to improve results and target specific needs such as under-eye discoloration or mature skin. In addition, we offer full-body acupuncture to address any underlying imbalances in order to foster optimal health. 

Benefits include: 

  • Tightens skin
  • Helps diminish wrinkles
  • Breaks down acne scarring
  • Minimizes age spots
  • Rejuvenates 

Microneedling treatment recommendation is one session every 4-6 weeks with a base of 3 treatments for maximum results. For improved results, depending on need or preference, we can supplement with nanoneedling or cosmetic acupuncture sessions, red LED light therapy, and herbal medicine. Nanoneedling can be done weekly while cosmetic acupuncture has no treatment limit.
