AcuMicro-needling is a 2,000 year old time tested treatment originating in ancient China. Emperors, the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines who wanted to live forever used this technique to remain youthful.
Of course, modern technology has upgraded this practice and now a top of the line, premium class 2 medical device is used to safely insert very short fine, sterile needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. Rather than typical acupuncture needles, acumicro-needling treatments are performed with an oscillating pen-like device that inserts tiny needles into the superficial layers of the skin to stimulate a skin reaction.
The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled mini injury at a specific depth of about .25 mm, generating tiny (micro) channels in the skin. With each puncture, our skin's natural repair response starts producing collagen and elastin to heal the controlled mini "injury" that was just developed. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.
With microneedling, the top layer of the skin is treated without being damaged, leaving the skin intact. It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. This process of natural healing and regenerating makes our skin tighter, smoother, healthier and more radiant.
Whereas acupuncture is best for lifting and sculpting the facial features, acumicro-needling is very effective at promoting cell turnover, inducing collagen and elastin, provoking your body's natural healing response and increasing the absorption of your serums and skin care. The result is a total transformation in the look, feel, and health of your complexion.

Visible results begin with the very first treatment and will continue for weeks afterward. As collagen levels continue to build up, your skin becomes more luminous and your complexion more even, healthy and radiant.
Acumicro-needling is performed only once a month. After your treatment, your skin may appear pink or slightly red, and may feel similar to a mild sunburn for a few hours. This typically disappears after 12–24 hrs. You will receive a patient aftercare kit to accelerate your recovery and results.
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, and last up to 5 years ... with no maintenance!
As an licensed acupuncturist, I am uniquely qualified to perform acumicro-needling, due to my in-depth knowledge of Chinese Medicine.
Unlike a sterile, medical treatment, relaxing and restorative acupuncture treatments are always combined with microneedling, drastically decreasing stress while enhancing your comfort, as well as improving your overall health, beauty and well being.
Constitutional body acupuncture addresses your overall health and the internal causes of aging. Stress, painful emotions, poor nourishment, lack of hydration and internal organ imbalances can often manifest on the face. Combining modern technology with ancient holistic medicine enhances health and beauty from the inside out. Acupuncture facials are the ultimate beauty treatment.
Micro-needling can also be done manually at-home as part of your self-care beauty ritual with an Acu-lift Derma-Roller. With consistency, results can be significant. It is also a perfect at-home companion to in-office professional micro-needling treatments.
