Reduce signs of aging, naturally
What is it?
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a virtually painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging. Based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, it helps the whole body look and feel younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process. The use of acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). Emperors and empresses were the only ones allowed to receive this powerful treatment!
How does it work?
Facial acupuncture creates a barely detectable micro-trauma in the skin, causing the body to respond by increasing circulation and increasing the presence of collagen and elastin. The effects include but are not limited to:
-increased elasticity of facial muscles
-smoothing of wrinkles
-a brighter and more even-toned complexion
-overall improvement of well-being
What will you experience?
You’ll relax on a heated massage table while Karly does all of the work! This ancient drug-free treatment includes body-balancing acupuncture followed by gentle facial rejuvenation acupuncture. Then, the treatment is finished with wrinkle-smoothing micro-current and a light facial massage utilizing a skin-smoothing jade roller. Results can be immediate!
Who can receive treatment?
Anyone who wants to improve the appearance and feel of their skin! It is suitable for all-ages and will give a lifted-yet-natural look to your face.
How do I get the best results?
It depends on your specific goals. In general, it is best to come in with more frequency in the beginning of your treatment plan (once or twice a week) and once you see the results you are looking for, come in monthly for “maintenance” treatments to maintain your results. However, some patients come in every day for 2 weeks before a big event like a wedding, the holidays or family photos. Treatments are cumulative but results can be instantaneous!
What else can I do?
There are specific anti-aging herbal formulas in the Chinese materia medica which slow the signs of aging. Karly will be able to guide you to the formula that is right for you. You should also aim for 8 hours of sleep every night and plenty of water and nutrient-dense food.

What our patients say
“Karly is a beautiful person inside and out. I can tell a difference in the lines on my face already. I truly appreciate her and her work. She is an inspiration and renewed my interest in acupuncture, especially for my face and neck.”
– Martha Hedgewick
“What brought us together was a need to explore more natural way of coping with the lines of age and incorporating a new direction of dealing with my fairly new titanium knees. Humidity and cold play an uncomfortable tune on the titanium! I liked what Karly had to say-I committed to this new (to me) treatment of acupuncture. The afternoon of my 1st treatment found me also in the throes of “Montezuma’s revenge”. But, I came with the resolve of NOT missing my appointment. Karly treated it as well. From 2pm-6:00pm I found a great deal of relief from it and back to much better in the am!! By the 2nd treatment I found more bendability in my knees and some of my “sabertooth” wrinkles were visibly better!! I am quite happy with the overall results. And Karly? She’s kind, calm, reassuring and so excited about her ability to help us all. She is wonderful! She is your gift to yourself! And I want to take her home with us!”
