Cosmetic Acupuncture        

Experience a non-surgical facelift with acupuncture and energy light rejuvenation. The acupuncture needles will activate acetylecholine, a neurotransmitter that causes muscle contraction, resulting in a tighter, smoother skin.

Energy light rejuvenation combines microcurrent with light and color therapy affecting collagen production, firming skin tone and smoothening fine lines.

The entire treatment will cause wrinkles to soften, giving you a relaxed vibrant glow. The initial treatment will include nutritional counseling that will give you guidance in promoting and maintaining a youthful skin.

The protocol for this non-surgical facelift is a series of ten treatments. Initial treatment is 90 minutes. Treatments thereafter are one hour.

Arlene Gillo, L.Ac., was trained in Beijing, China and in California specifically for cosmetic acupuncture.
