What is Acupuncture?

Our Beauty Acupuncture is a Japanese style acupuncture.

 

Acupuncture is called “Shinkyu” in Japanese, meaning acupuncture and moxibustion.

Chinese medicine originated from China and has a 3,000 year history. It was imported to Japan around 1,500 years ago. The Japanese have evolved acupuncture in their own way since then.

Nowadays, Japanese Shinkyu is known for: 

1) Using extremely thin top quality needles: enhance "no-pain" experience

2) Using gentle, softer techniques: effective but calm, relaxing experience

3) Japanese acupuncture also follows the special Clean Needle Technique in  the U.S. to ensure high hygiene standard

Acupuncture is BOTOX, Fillers Compatible

Beauty Acupuncture works very well with any neuro-toxins, fillers and other surgical/non-surgical procedures. 

There is no adverse or reverse effects to none of western anti-aging procedures.

But before booking Beauty Acupuncture, please talk to your doctor about what activities can be done after your procedure. We usually tell patients to wait for 2-3 weeks after the Botox, fillers and other procedures.

Please ask us if you take any LED photo-facial,  other light therapy or skin-peeling - usually their downtime is not as long as fillers.

But we ask you if there is any redness, burns or inflammatio before coming in.

 

For invasive surgical procedures, such as facelift (mini-lift), threading, etc., we usually ask minimum one month “downtime” before acupuncture on face.  

We can see patients with all skin conditions, but please note after examinations, we may advise you to see Primary Care Physicians (family doctor) or dermatologist for further diagnosis.

Acupuncture treatment can be done with skin-aging conditions and hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, sagging skin, as well as common skin problems such as dry/oily skin, acne-prone skin, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, Bell’s Palsy, etc., but we do not diagnose, nor medically treat any skin diseases.
