What to expect
Results vary based on your lifestyle. If you are a sunner and a smoker obviously your skin is not going to respond the same as someone who exercises and avoids UV damage. A healthy diet rich in fruits and veggies, recovering from your day with a healthy dose of sleep and practicing stress management will improve your outcome. Healthy lifestyle not your forte? That's okay! This is a great place to start. I treat the whole body so this will also improve your overall health. Typically a series of 10-12 sessions will do you up fine. Then you should schedule a follow up every six months. Results typically last 3-5 years.
On your first visit I will do a thorough intake so that I can treat you for better health overall. We will spend a bit of time talking so that I can get a clear Chinese Medical Diagnosis before treatment. The key to success with cosmetic acupuncture is getting a very clear overall picture of your health so I can treat you accordingly. In East Asian Medicine we say what is going on on the inside is reflected on the outside. We will do a general overall facial treatment to see how you respond to the treatment. Follow up treatments may be more specific to your areas of concern. The first session is 90 minutes.
Depending on the treatment sessions you enrolled in we may do a facial mask, steam, gua sha, massage, and acupuncture followed by a moisturizing treatment. You likely see improvement after the first visit, then usually around the 5th or 6th visit and will be shining by your 12th visit. Acupuncture builds on itself so it is imperative that you come in at least weekly for your sessions. Twice a week is also an option but it is important not to take any breaks in the middle.
Gua Sha is a type of massage technique done with either a gua sha tool like a jade stone or soup spoon. Yes! A soup spoon. It's that easy. A bonus Gua Sha class will be offered to my clients. I want you to know how to keep it fresh! This is a fun night with wine, treats and a room full of cool people! Typical cost of the class is $45. You come for free and your friends pay only $20!
