What is Constitutional Holistic Skin Care?
Constitutional Holistic Skin Care has its foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine and focuses on health as its starting point. Our outsides are a reflection of what is going on inside, so we must always take into consideration the whole person as part of the treatment. These treatments are intended to be an alternative to toxic and harsh procedures, and only natural products are used.
All of these sessions begin with a comprehensive intake and a diagnosis in Traditional Chinese Medicine and follow a treatment plan created for each person’s body/mind/spirit. Gentle body acupuncture is included in each treatment to address any underlying conditions and to provide relaxation and a sense of ease.
What is Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy)?
Microneedling is the safe, minimally invasive process of using an instrument with very fine needles to create micro channels in the skin. As these channels heal, the deeper dermal layers of the skin regenerate in a more balanced state. This process helps to treat sun damaged and dark spots, acne and acne scars, fines lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, and hair loss. These channels cause the skin to become 3000% more receptive to anything applied to it, so during the treatment and for the next 7 days, an all natural, custom serum is used to increase results. Depending on age and rate of cell turnover, Microneedling can be done once every 4 to 6 weeks with a recommendation of 4 to 6 treatments. Results can last up to 5 years after treatment.
What is Nanoneedling?
Nanoneedling uses the same instrument used in Microneedling but employs fine silicone tips instead of needles to gently part the cells of the upper layer of skin. There is no downtime for this treatment, and the skin is left with a healthy glow. This treatment can be done every week and is often done in the weeks between Microneedling sessions to increase results. The skin is 300% more receptive to anything applied to it, so during the treatment and for the next 7 days, an all natural, custom serum is used to increase results.
What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture uses single, ultra fine needles in specific acupuncture points on the face to help build collagen, bring lift, refine texture, even out color, clear redness, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The acupuncture points on the face can also help address systemic issues since these points are part of the traditional channels that help to balance the body as a whole. These sessions typically finish with facial gua sha or cupping as indicated to improve the skin and relax the nervous system. There is no down time for this treatment.
