Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture or Cosmetic Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation, also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, though new in the United States, has been practiced for thousands of years in China. At least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960 AD -1270 AD), acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed, especially for royal families. A famous Chinese saying states, “Where qi flows, blood flows.” Increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better.

Whereas Botox treatments numb the face and dull the energy flow, cosmetic acupuncture actually brings vitality and energy to the face, allowing for more elasticity and expression. All the yang meridians, and two important extraordinary vessels (the conception and directing vessel), run through the face.

Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

  • Delays facial aging
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes ‘crows feet’ around the eyes
  • Frown lines lessened
  • Tightens pores
  • Lifts sagging skin and drooping eyelids
  • Increases collagen production
  • Improves muscle tone
  • Reduces dark circles and puffy eyes
  • Brightens the eyes
  • Improves hormonal balance to reduce acne
  • Improves elasticity of facial muscles
  • Restores a youthful glow


Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture works best as a 10 treatment protocol.

Treatments are scheduled twice a week for 5 weeks. If you need results faster, ask about other possible schedules.

Each treatment takes from 45 to 60 minutes. That's just a 10 hour commitment to looking younger!

We will also talk about how you can support your good results through nutrition, skin care, stress management, etc.


$100 per treatment
Package of 5 treatments: $400
Package of 10 treaments: $800

You may set up an initial consultation at no cost if you wish. Please call (412) 381-0116 for more information.

By stimulating the face with needles, the energy flow of the whole body is stimulated, allowing the person to not only look better, but feel better as well.
