Hi everyone, my name is Emily Farish, I’m a licensed acupuncturist and East Asian medical practitioner here in Spokane, Washington.
So today, we’re doing something super fun. It’s one of my favorite things to help my patients with. It’s called cosmetic acupuncture. So what is cosmetic acupuncture, it’s a tool that’s been utilized over many, many, many years to basically reduce fine lines and wrinkles of the face and neck. Also, because acupuncture is an internal medicine as well, it’s utilized to enhance immune system effects and send nutrients to the face to help repair tissue.
It’s painless. It’s very, very relaxing, it’s safe and effective. And it complements any other cosmetic techniques or procedures that someone is also going through as well. So the particular patient that we have today, she has just done so beautifully, she came to me because she was really concerned about the wrinkles in her forehead, and then basically what we call the elevens, the lines in between the eyebrows, particularly on the right side for her. So we talked about diet, nutrition, she changed her diet, she also began a very rigorous exercise program. And so we work together for about 10 visits, and we’re able to see some really beautiful, beautiful changes for her.
So these are really, really small. They’re called intradermal needles, and then they work with basically this fascia that’s right underneath the top of the skin. And so this layer is what the cosmetic acupuncture accesses and particularly the fine lines is what we’re really aiming for, to really help to tonify and enliven the skin.
So now we’re gonna let the patient rest for about 30 to 40 minutes with the needles retained, as well as the machine which is working over the face. It’s called a celuna device. So what the studies have shown is that it’s around that timeframe where the immune system is stimulated to the areas where the needles are, so it starts to really basically provide nutrients to all of the skin and the fascia underneath the skin as well as a dermal layer. So everything gets hydrated. Just super enhanced, plump, awesome, beautiful skin!
As you can see this patient experience wonderful results with the cosmetic acupuncture in reducing the fine lines of the forehead and the 11 lines in between the eyebrows.
