Cosmetic Acupuncture & Facial Rejuvenation in New York City

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a proven, age-old procedure that involves non-surgical process of bringing the natural glow back to your skin. At Yejee Cosmetic Acupuncture NYC, our practitioners specialize in facial rejuvenation, cosmetic acupuncture, and natural skin remedies to help you achieve the look you’ve always desired.

What is Cosmetic Acupuncture

A surprising fact to many of our patients is that cosmetic acupuncture has existed for centuries. Although it’s a non-surgical procedure with little to no side effects, it has only recently garnered mainstream recognition due in part to celebrities revealing their beauty secrets which incorporate oriental medicine. Also known as facial acupuncture or aesthetic acupuncture, the procedure involves the insertion of hair-thin, sterile needles into specific areas of the face. The benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include the reduction of wrinkles, age spots, and acne and the improvement of facial muscle and skin tone. Cosmetic acupuncture is also proven to increase collagen production and cell regeneration without damaging sensitive areas of the skin. And, most importantly, the procedure accomplishes all this without the common side effects of plastic surgery or Botox.

Cosmetic Acupuncture: What to Expect on Your Initial Visit

CONSULTATION

During a one-on-one meeting, the practitioner carefully examines the main issues the patient is experiencing to determine the most effective treatment plan.

CLEANSING

As one of the most crucial steps in cosmetic acupuncture, cleansing preps the skin for stimulation of the epidermis with herbal tonics (all chemical-free) to enhance the effects of needle insertion. (As an added bonus, many patients report that the experience is very relaxing.) Our practitioner also uses antibacterial toners and papaya granule peels to cleanse the skin and pores in preparation for the next step.

NEEDLE INSERTION

We understand that not everyone is comfortable with needles and so we strive to practice the most non-invasive acupuncture possible. Depending on the treatment plan, the practitioner may insert hair-thin, sterile needles into specific areas of the skin or utilize Auto Micro-Needle Therapy to target deeper areas. The experience is reportedly very soothing, and it is not uncommon for many of our patients to fall asleep during treatment.

AMPOULE APPLICATION

Some patients may be advised to receive ampoule therapy as part of their treatment plan. Ampoules are a high-potency serum that includes botanical extracts, vitamins and enzymes that are designed to target a specific skin type or deficiency. From dry to oily skin, each patient receives a specific type of therapy once ampoule application is recommended by the practitioner.

NEEDLE DISPOSAL

After the needles are removed, the face is supplied with various herbal tonics and covered with a molding mask for 15 minutes. Vitamin tonic and moisturizer is then applied to the face for rejuvenation of the skin. Sunscreen is also used to protect the skin for the patient’s return outdoors.

FINAL STEP

The practitioner provides tips and a regimen to follow at home. The patient will also be informed of what to expect in the next few days and whether or not follow-up treatments are necessary.

Beauty Starts from Within

We view treatment as a holistic process in which the entire body requires attention, not just its separate parts.
