Cosmetic Acupuncture isn’t something you often hear about. Hopefully that will change. At Breakthrough Wellness Center we believe in healing patients from the inside out. If we take care of your insides though nutrition and treatment, It will radiate on your outside. Still, people believe that cosmetic procedures will make them look younger and feel better about themselves. The problem with cosmetic procedures is that they can be dangerous and costly. Enter cosmetic Acupuncture. This safe, holistic approach comes with less risks, no downtime, and the changes are more gradual, not sudden and “clown like”. Entertainment professions who are on the go or in front of a multitude of people (and cameras) appreciate the absence of down time, and the more gradual, natural appearance. There are points on the scalp and face that tiny acupuncture needles arethen inserted, to firm the area. Some needles are directed into wrinkle lines that causes very small, micro trauma to the area. This intern stimulates the production of elastin and collagen to fill in those areas. Normally this production stops at a young age, unless there is trauma. This procedure is working as botox would, without the toxin. Facial acupuncture also increases the flow of blood and Qi (chee) to the face, and at the same time correcting any unhealthy imbalances. Generally a treatment course for cosmetic acupuncture is 12 sessions. However, patients usually notice changes by 5-6 visits. It’s about 45 minutes long for each session. It’s important to note that during these treatments, one should be eating a healthy diet and keep toxins to a minimum. At Breakthrough Wellness Center, San Lee our acupuncturist
