How acupuncture can help you look your best!

How acupuncture can help you look your best!, Evolve Acupuncture in Ferndale, MI

Patients always ask if acupuncture can help make them look younger.  The short answer is yes but it takes a commitment.  Cosmetic or Facial Acupuncture can:  

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin appearance over time
  • Experience lasting effects to your skin that can be felt and seen
  • See and feel improvements in natural collagen and fibroblasts production
  • Lower oxidative stress in the body which is highly associated with the aging process

EVOLVE Acupuncture & Wellness uses a 3-step process that is exclusive to our clinic in the metro Detroit area.  During your treatment, this 3-step process includes facial acupuncture using motor points, LED red light therapy and a facial micro-current mask.  This combination is the same one used by Travall Croom, who I studied with and is considered the go to acupuncturist in NYC for runway models.  

EVOLVE Acupuncture & Wellness recommends patients start with a package of 10 visits and come 2 times per week for the first month followed by maintenance appointments every 2-6 weeks.  If you're planning for a big event like a wedding or mile-stone birthday, it's best to start 3 months prior to this event for best results.  Every patient responds differently.

What Tongue Type Are You?

You might be surprised when your acupuncturist asks you to stick out your tongue at your first visit! 

It's actually very helpful for us to take a look at your tongue to determine what is going on systemically in your body.  Everyone's tongue is unique! Based on what we see, your acupuncturist will create a customized treatment plan to help you with energy, sleep, digestive problems, etc. 

Take a look at this chart to determine your tongue type.  Most patients will be a combination of 2-3 of these tongue types.  When you make your appointment at EVOLVE Acupuncture & Wellness, we will discuss this in more detail and confirm your findings.  

Call us at (248) 792-8150 or schedule online at www.acu-evolve.com.
