pic_sheilaThis non-surgical treatment has helped many of my patients feel and look younger, naturally. Acupuncture needles are applied to help firm, tighten and overall improve the quality of your skin. Anyone, at any age, interested in looking and feeling his or her best can benefit.

Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation:

  • Helps to firm and tone facial muscles
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines & deep wrinkles
  • Increases blood flow to increase moisture to the skin
  • Enhances collagen production
  • Brightens the eye area
  • Benefits skin problems
  • Promotes overall health and well being



Microneedling effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, improves skin texture and color and dramatically enhances effectiveness of skincare products. Visible results begin on the first day and continue for weeks afterward. As collagen levels continue to build up, your skin becomes more luminous and complexion more even.

  • What is microneedling?

With microneedling, we use a device which is like an electric wand with tiny needles which vibrate and help our organic serums to penetrate the skin. These needles create micropanels in the skin, increasing collagen and elastin; these two things can cause skin to be firmer, and also help with smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Will my skin bleed? Is this similar to the “vampire facial”?

The original thought related to microneedling was that the needles had to go deep into the dermis which would make the skin bloody. Since then, research has shown that all of the value of microneedling takes place in the top layer of the skin, the “epidermis.”

  • What is the benefit of having an acupuncturist perform microneedling?

Your Acupuncturist is uniquely qualified to perform Microneedling due to their in-depth knowledge of Chinese Medicine. Combining this ancient medicine with modern technology enhances health and beauty from the inside out. Body acupuncture addresses the internal causes of aging and organ imbalances, which often appear on the face.

  • What do I need to know before microneedling?

You will want to refrain from using abrasive skincare products, such as retinol, exfoliants, topical antibiotics and acids, for at least 48 hours before microneedling. It is best not to have any fillers in your skin or botox. It is crucial to avoid harmful UV ray exposure from direct sunlight and tanning beds for the five days before your treatment.

  • Are there any contraindications for microneedling?

If a person is on blood thinners or has an autoimmune disorder, microneedling is contraindicated. Another contradindication is an active breakout of severe rosacea, herpes or shingles. Also, if you have fillers or botox, you want to wait a few weeks before having microneedling.

  • What will my skin look like directly after microneedling?

Following treatment your skin may appear pink or slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn. This typically disappears after 12–24hrs. You will receive a patient aftercare kit to accelerate your and results.

  • When will I see results, and how long do they last?

Results are sometimes apparent after one treatment and will improve over a series of 3–6 monthly treatments. Results will continue to progress for several months after your last treatment. Results can last
up to five years!

“Karen stands out because she is both an acupuncturist and a facialist so she offers a holistic approach to skincare. She can use both acupuncture and microcurrents to lift sagging facial muscles, increase circulation, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.”

  • What can I expect before and during the microneedling treatment?

Before Treatment, if desired, topical anesthetic is applied before treatment to provide light numbing.

During Treatment, we use serums on the skin. They are physician formulated, organic and vegan. The microneedling pen is then used to create controlled microchannels, eliciting your body’s healing response. This will remodel and rejuvenate your skin to provide a younger, more firm and radiant appearance.
