Natural Aesthetic Therapies
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture applies a combination of effective natural techniques to have vibrant, healthy, and youthful skin in the most chemical-free and non-invasive way possible. With facial acupuncture, the collagen and elastin matrix is shallowly pierced and activated while increasing local blood and lymph circulation also improving facial color and tone. When working with the body’s entire constitution as a springboard for facial transformation, the entire system is balanced and supported- promoting a sense of well-being and joy.

Your appointment will last approximately 75 minutes utilizing a blend of delicate acupuncture needles, rose cleansing and hydrating skincare products, followed by jade roller and hydrosol application. Mountain Rose Herb products (100% natural facial care using botanicals sourced from organic farms located in the great Pacific Northwest) are gently applied to your skin in this treatment. In addition to any skin issues, lifestyle and dietary recommendations will also be discussed.
The number of treatments depend on the patient’s age, skin goals, and desired results. While most report increased energy and vitality after the initial treatment, the skin rejuvenation improvement and results listed above tend to occur after the first 4-5 treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (also referred to as PRP) offers a unique alternative in aesthetic medicine to regenerate your skin using your own body’s cells without the use of artificial products or surgery. This innovative natural procedure offers skin rejuvenation with minimal to no recuperative downtime. Often referred to as the “vampire facelift”, this is the most natural aesthetic treatment imaginable – your own cells!
Platelets in the blood contain growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and keratin. PRP can be precisely introduced to an area where increased collagen is desired, resulting in repaired and rejuvenated skin. This is also an excellent natural treatment for hair loss, or alopecia.
PRP injections initiate a localized stem cell response that recruits collagen-producing cells over the course of weeks and months following the treatment. These cells replace tissue that has been damaged or lost via the natural aging process with healthy, rejuvenated skin with improved tone and texture.
This is an ideal option for those seeking a gradual, noticeable improvement for the following:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Replacing mild collagen and volume loss
- Crow’s feet
- Acne scarring
- Tightening and toning skin
- Alopecia, hair thinning, or hair loss
Overall improvement in the skin hydration, tone, and texture is noticeable within a few weeks of treatment. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow three to six weeks after treatment, resulting in the reduction of fine lines/wrinkles and volume correction over the following three to six months. The cosmetic effects of PRP can last 1-2 years, depending on the individual. Best results are yielded when up to three treatments are provided, 8 weeks apart.
