Microneedling and Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture
Call for a Free Consultation

Microneedling and Facial Acupuncture can alter or delay the signs of aging on the face. The beauty of using Acupuncture as a part of a cosmetic treatment plan is that it treats the body inside and out: eliciting changes on the skin and face, while also strengthening and supporting whole body health through the aging process.


Microneedling stimulates the body to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in skin that is plumper, firmer, and smoother. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles and scars, improve skin tone, lighten areas of hyperpigmentation, and reduce eye bags and puffiness. When used on the scalp, it promotes hair growth by stimulating dormant hair follicles.

Specific serums are applied during and after a Microneedling treatment to increase the desired results. In our clinic, we use vegan stem cells, collagen boosting herbs, hyaluronic acid, and specific algae derivatives for lightening hyperpigmentation or reducing eye bags. After a Microneedling session, serum absorption is 3,000% greater than it would be normally.

Facial Acupuncture

Like Microneedling, Facial Acupuncture benefits the skin by stimulating the production of collagen. It also strengthens the integrity of the facial muscles and ligaments, preserves bone density, addresses underlying systemic imbalances, and supports full body health. Facial Acupuncture can soften deep wrinkles, eliminate small fine lines, improve muscle tone, tone skin laxity, heal skin problems, and create lift and a rosey, dewy, moist, luminous look.

Is Microneedling or Facial Acupuncture Better For Me?

An integrated approach using Microneedling and Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture gives the best result! Microneedling has great strength in stimulating collagen production. However, the aging process involves changes in the bone, muscles, ligaments, fat, and deep connective tissue layers of the face. Facial Acupuncture is a great tool to address these deeper layers of the face.

Patients Love What We Do!

“I went to see Dr. Sando for micro-needling hoping for a refreshed face for the holidays. Dr. Kelsi Sando explained the process in detail and what to expect post-treatment. Surprisingly the treatment was painless. It left me with beautiful glowing skin after the subtle redness subsided the following day. I have been having a persistent issue with small forehead lines that I’ve been trying everything to get rid of, and this treatment was able to eliminate those small lines almost to a 100%. I left with a small post-treatment packet to use that night, which included hyaluronic acid and Aloe Vera. Highly recommend!”

Yelp Review

“I’ve been going to Dr. Kelsi for over a year now and I am so glad I found her! I see her for facial acupuncture and I have been very pleased not only with the initial results, but I have continued to see those results hold with the maintenance visits. Dr. Kelsi hasn’t only helped with acupuncture, but her health and wellness tips have been invaluable. From suggestions for dealing with terrible allergies, or mold issues, to dealing with recurring headaches, she has been beyond amazing. The best part is that I always leave feeling refreshed and relaxed after a visit with Dr. Kelsi.”
