Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It improves the body's functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites - commonly referred to as acupuncture points or acupoints. The most common method to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe, and the body, in terms of two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. Energy, called "qi" (pronounced "chee"), flows along specific pathways, called meridians, throughout the body.
This constant flow of energy keeps the yin and yang forces balanced. However, if the flow of energy gets blocked, like water getting stuck behind a dam, the disruption can lead to pain, lack of function, or illness.
Acupuncture therapy can release blocked qi in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body's natural healing response through various physiological systems. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture's effects on the nervous, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, and digestive systems.
By stimulating the body's various systems, acupuncture can help to:
Tiny needles will be gently placed in specific areas on the face. Each treatment is completely customized per patient and per treatment. Different types of needles will be used in one treatment to target a combination of acupuncture points, motor points, origin, and insertion of various facial muscles, fine lines, and wrinkles.
These needles will interact with the underlying tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Stimulating these positive microtraumas will encourage the body's natural healing response and promote collagen and blood flow in the face.

What is low-level light therapy?
Originally researched and developed by NASA, low-light therapy, also known as photo-biostimulation, is the application of light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. It produces a natural photo biochemical reaction similar to plant photosynthesis. It has many beneficial applications in various medical fields, including treating skin, muscle, joint, and pain conditions.
Using clinically proven wavelengths, the Celluma Pro has three modes, with the option to pulse between two per treatment: Anti Aging, Acne, and/or Pain.
Celluma can be used for anyone and is FDA-cleared to treat:
Precision micro tips are tapped into the skin using the Procell, creating uniform microchannels. Using the Procell system, a single pass over the face will create hundreds of thousands of microchannels. Each microchannel is surrounded by healthy tissue, which enhances the healing process.
An inflammatory healing process promotes new collagen formation in response to each microinjury. Over time the repeated healing process will create new collagen, creating healthier skin and improving the texture and overall appearance. This treatment uses growth factors to enhance results.
