All-Natural, Anti-Aging Compounds
Microneedling is clinically proven to reduce and prevent signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots.
At Mind Body Shen in Lenexa, we also include hyaluronic acid in our microneedling serum to improve skin firmness and texture. When paired with our Acumicro Microneedling treatment, you can achieve a stunningly youthful complexion!
What does microneedling treat?
Wrinkles and fine lines
45-60 minute appointment with just 5-10 minutes of actual microneedling time. Maximum results are shown when patients do between 4-6 monthly treatments. Results are shown to last between 3-5 years in research without maintenance.
Your skin could be slightly red and tight after treatment, in less than 24 hours it will feel back to normal. Results are seen and felt even after the first treatment.
Why try microneedling in Lenexa?
When your Mind Body Shen provider applies serum directly before your microneedling treatment, your skin absorbs the serum deep into the epidermis. This allows the serum to work quickly and the results are outstanding. We apply our microneedling pen at 0.5 -1.0mm depth, which is less damaging to the skin while still very effective for boosting collagen production, reducing wrinkles, pigmentation, and scarring.
Hyaluronic acid can help your skin look and feel more supple.
Hyaluronic acid is already present in your skin, where it binds to water to help retain moisture, when applied to the surface of the skin, hyaluronic acid serums can help reduce wrinkles, redness and dermatitis, plus help make your skin look supple and smooth.

Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment
Cosmetic acupuncture primarily focuses on aesthetic concerns of the face, although your provider can also use this method to treat skin concerns throughout your body.
Your skin will feel tight and be slightly red for 8-12 hours following microneedling. For one week after you will want to wear sunscreen and your skin may feel slightly more sensitive. After that you will be back to normal.
Before receiving your Cosmetic Acupuncture, we recommend you:
Make sure to eat a full meal 1 to 2 hours prior to your appointment. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Arrive to your appointment in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. If possible having a clean face with no make-up is preferred.
Does cosmetic acupuncture hurt?
We use very small, thin needles for your acupuncture treatment! Most patients report feeling no pain at all and find the treatment quite relaxing.
Is cosmetic acupuncture an alternative to Botox?
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.
