How does it work?
There is no one standard treatment. It is still evolving, therefore, every acupuncturist has his/her own style. Normally it follows the regular acupuncture treatment standards. The acupuncturist analyzes your general health, eating,
fitness habits and assesses
level. Then the acupuncturist develops a special treatment for each person.
The key to the treatment is the application of the acupuncture needles on the face. Some acupuncturists also recommend intake of Chinese herbs. (Related:

To see results the patient needs to have a series of treatments. Again the length of the treatment varies depending on the acupuncturist and the patientís condition. It can vary from 6 to 25 treatments. More the
wrinkles, more the treatments required. Some patients have reported that they saw results after the first treatment.
The treatments are required every week in the beginning, and after a few months, every other week. The cost varies by location. In Florida it is about $70 per treatment and in Boston it costs $100 and up for treatment.
The results last for years and the treatment can be repeated as you need to. They are, according to many patients, very relaxing. (Related
Does it hurt?
There is a little discomfort when the needles are pushed in the skin, but it is neither painful nor does it require any down time
without anesthesia). It does not cause scars, bruises or irritation. You can go back to your normal life right after the treatment. (Related:

Should I try it?
Realistically speaking, acupuncture cannot cut extra skin nor
change the shape of your
nose, but it can potentially help to improve muscle tone and increase the production of
collagen in the skin. Collagen is what gives the skin its radiance, and youthful and healthy look.
