Cosmetic acupuncture in Boston

Cosmetic acupuncture in Boston

Cosmetic acupuncture is used to decrease fine lines, age spots and plump up the tissue to rejuvenate your appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture can be done as often as once a week, and is often used to support the results seen from microneedling. While microneedling treats and stimulates a broad area, cosmetic acupuncture isolates deeper wrinkles and problem areas.


We at Johnston Family Acupuncture want to help you better manage your natural skin care. Our staff is trained to turn your cosmetic acupuncture session into a therapeutic experience. We use a combination of traditional herbs, aromatics, and ambience to make you as relaxed as possible throughout your session. If you’re in need of further relaxation or relief, we may recommend other techniques such as gua sha, cupping therapy, or moxa. We’re licensed by the state of Massachusetts to practice cosmetic acupuncture in Boston.

What is cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture is a minimally invasive procedure where an acupuncturist inserts acupuncture needles into problem areas in your skin. Cosmetic acupuncture is typically performed on the face and stimulates the muscles under the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. 

What are the benefits of cosmetic acupuncture?

The primary benefits of cosmetic acupuncture are improved blood flow to problem areas and the stimulation of facial muscles under the skin, which helps with tone and cosmetic issues such as lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic acupuncture is minimally invasive and can be done as frequently as once a week to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scarring. Like microneedling, cosmetic acupuncture can serve to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in your skin, improving your skin’s elasticity and firmness.

 

Short term benefits from cosmetic acupuncture can be seen almost immediately, such as improved skin tone, brightness, and a reduction in the visibility of fine lines. 

Does cosmetic acupuncture hurt?

When performed properly, cosmetic acupuncture shouldn’t hurt at all. Acupuncture needles are just a few tenths of a millimeter in diameter, or roughly the diameter of a strand of hair. You may feel a pinch, or a tapping sensation as the needle is inserted. If you experience pain or discomfort during cosmetic acupuncture, it’s important to discuss this with your acupuncturist so they can adjust the placement of the acupuncture needles.

What should I expect during cosmetic acupuncture?

During your consultation, you should expect to talk in depth about your entire health history. Then a physical exam will be performed by checking your tongue, pulse, and abdomen. Following the diagnosis, we will prescribe and administer the treatment protocol that works best for you. Cosmetic acupuncture is often done in conjunction with microneedling to further stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This combination of treatments dramatically increases the production of collagen and elastin in your skin, leaving you looking and feeling younger and more refreshed.
