Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Our faces are the gateway between how we feel internally and how we express ourselves to the world. Chinese Medicine acknowledges that the condition of our skin is a reflection of our internal health, and our cosmetic acupuncture program is designed to not only improve your skin, but also to optimize your whole-being health, so you shine from the inside-out.

Our cosmetic acupuncturist, Debora Silverman, L.Ac., has decades of experience in holistic skincare, and she offers the following services in our clinic:

Microneedling Medical-Grade Facials 

Microneedling involves the insertion of very short, fine needles into the skin with a medical-class premium Microneedling pen (above and beyond the services you can receive from an esthetician), for the purpose of rejuvenation of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.

Microneedling creates micro channels in the skin, which activates the skin’s own repair response — producing collagen and elastin — which make our skin tighter and smoother.

At Monarch, we combine this powerful treatment with the Celluma LED/far-infrared light device to further encourage skin repair, anti-inflammatory action and wrinkle repair.

Microneedling increases product absorption by 5000%, and topicals such as hyalauronic acid and customized Chinese herbal serums are applied during and after the treatment.

Because optimal results are achieved after 4-6 treatments at once-monthly intervals (with results lasting up to three years with no maintenance!), Microneedling is only offered as a package of 4 sessions. You may purchase additional single sessions after an initial 4-session package.

Introductory Pricing: 4 Microneedling sessions for $1800 ($200 discount).  


Herbal skincare

Nanoneedling and Facial Rejuvenation

Nanoneedling is a similar modality to microneedling, except the needles penetrate the skin at a much shallower depth. This treatment can be applied more frequently than microneedling and is an excellent complement to your cosmetic acupuncture program between microneedling sessions! It is also appropriate for very thin or sensitive skin.

Facial Rejuvenation is another modality that can be used as a standalone therapy, or in between microneedling sessions. Facial rejuvenation involves the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles into key areas of the face, in order to promote skin tightness and elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and lift skin that is sagging or folding.

At your first visit, our cosmetic acupuncturist will provide a consultation and comprehensive health intake, and then will recommend a course of treatment based on. your individual needs and goals.

Nanoneedling and Facial Rejuvenation pricing: $250 per session
