Cosmetic Acupuncture Can Help With:
Healthier & Brighter Complexion
Who provides cosmetic acupuncture?
At Durand Health, Dr. Julia Tolton, Naturopathic Doctor, offers cosmetic acupuncture. It can be provided individually as a stand-alone therapy or in any combination with other anti-aging or wellness services. You can book with Dr. Tolton here.
Using disposable and sterile needles, no thicker than a strand of hair, they are inserted into specific points on the face and body. These needles create stimulation in the skin and result in putting the body into repair mode. The function of this mode is to stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory systems. Working together, they deliver nutrients and oxygen to the skin, rejuvenating it from the inside out. It also encourages the body to produce collagen, which helps maintain elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and give the skin that healthy glow.
How should I prepare for my treatment?
Though cosmetic acupuncture focuses on achieving a more youthful and lifted look on the face, it is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy designed to address the body as a whole. Your practitioner will assess the need for needle placement during your appointment.
We advise you to refrain from alcohol consumption for 24 hours before and after your appointment. Any vigorous exercise 2 hours before and after your treatment is also not recommended. It is essential to have a light meal before a cosmetic acupuncture treatment. You should also wear casual and comfortable clothes.
Our practitioners work collaboratively with all the other healthcare practitioners in the clinic, including physicians, chiropractors, physiotherapists, naturopaths, chiropodists, and other specialists in order to best manage your health needs. Please inquire for more information.
