Why try cosmetic acupuncture in Lenexa?
Non-invasive and pain-free
Acupuncture requires the use of very thin, single use, sterile needles. Most patients report having absolutely no discomfort during treatment, and some may even find it relaxing.
Improved Collagen Production
As we age, our body reduce our production of collagen—which your body uses as a natural healing element to help keep healthy, tight, and glowing. Cosmetic acupuncture in Lenexa helps to stimulate collagen production in the treatment area!
During the SHEN facial acupuncture, gua sha, cupping, and massage are used to improve circulation in the face and neck. This can reduce puffiness and sinus congestion in the face.

Cosmetic acupuncture is a natural alternative to Botox and fillers. The results are not as dramatic, but will provide improved circulation, more toned skin and relaxation of muscles in the face that are causing wrinkles.
How many treatment sessions do I need?
With acupuncture the signs of aging can be minimized or delayed. A single treatment can show changes that last for days. A series of treatments can create change that lasts for months. benefits can last for years with maintenance treatments.
A typical treatment series is 1x per week for 8-12 weeks, and maintenance treatments every 4-6 weeks. Sometimes just yearly maintenance is needed.
