Cosmetic Acupuncture - Experience Matters

Yep, that's my face! Here I am working on lifting and shaping my cheekbones while preventing smile lines, droopy eyelids, and dark circles under my eyes.  Cosmetic acupuncture is more than just sticking needles in the face - it's working with the underlying muscular structure to shape, lift, and contour the face.  When seeking a cosmetic acupuncturist, ensure you find a practitioner who has specific advanced cosmetic acupuncture training.
