Cosmetic acupuncture includes rejuvenation of the face and neck and is a gentle, natural therapy for improving the radiance and natural beauty of your skin. It is the "natural botox" without chemicals or fillers.Cosmetic acupuncture at Adirondack Wellness Group is based on traditional Chinese medicine, which improves your health and energy as it helps your skin look firmer, younger and more radiant. 

How it Works

Dr. Heather Schuerlein evaluates the condition of the skin, in combination with your current health and family history. Tiny needles are inserted at the surface of the skin utilizing a very shallow needling technique. This brings increased Qi (“chee”, your body’s natural energy) and blood to the face and can improve or increase production of collagen and elastin. This allows your face to look firmer, healthier and more youthful.

This therapy includes acupuncture point selections beyond the face to help rebalance energy throughout your body, which in turn reflects through on the skin and in particular the face.

Reported benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture include:

  • Improvement in the fine lines of the face and a diminishing effect on deeper wrinkles
  • Moisturized, softer skin
  • More even skin tone, Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line,
  • Reduction in the beginning of jowels on the neck
  • Reduction or elimination of rosacea, acne and melasma

General health benefits include better sleep, improved energy and digestion and a reduction in stress.

Optimal results are achieved with an initial 10-treatment protocol at 2 treatments a week for five consecutive weeks. Depending on your situation, this may be followed by maintenance, which generally involves one treatment every 1 to 3 months.

The initial consultation includes an overall health assessment including diet, lifestyle and skincare, in order to best develop a treatment plan that is tailored toward you.

Cosmetic acupuncture is far less invasive than surgical procedures such as facelifts and does not have side-effects that have been reported by botox injections. In addition to facial rejuvenation, acupuncture provides general overall health and wellness to help you look and feel your best. 

What people are saying about Cosmetic Acupuncture:

"This is so much better than botox or surgery. Gives you a natural look while tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles. Highly recommend this method. It doesn't kill off your nerves or create an exaggerated appearance. Heather is so knowledgeable and gentle. Find the 1/2 hour of lying there in a darkened room and meditation music to be such a calming thing at the end of a school day". -EM

"Not only has this treatment resulted in a lessening of fine lines but also of the daily tension lines. Heather treats the whole body (gently and with compassion) and I leave there feeling refreshed and calm. I highly recommend this to everyone!" -RW
