Introducing our cosmetic acupuncturist
Ms. Iwasa Yukari is one of our acupuncturists and she performs cosmetic acupuncture, too.
Our acupuncturists including her are the national qualified acupuncturists.
The facial acupuncture for a cosmetic method is based on our acupuncture treatment.
An acupuncturist inserts about 43 fine-needles on face(and sometimes a few points on head, too) and run the very weak current through the needles.
These punctures improve the blood flow and better circulation, which work to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells. This helps promote the skin’s glow and stimulates the production of collagen.
・Increased circulation oxygenating the skin.
・Increased collagen production.
・Nourished skin giving a healthy complexion.
・Reduce eye strain and slight headache.
・Works for autonomic nerves (feel relax and sleep well).
She says “It might be working not only on facial expression or skin but also on the mind. This is what I am touched by their shining smile after finishing every treatment.”
Our treatment is by appointment only, and she is the only one cosmetic acupuncturist in our clinic. So, please call us for the advanced reservation if you are interested in our cosmetic acupuncture.

Changing the impression of face
|２０’s the outline of face is firm and sharp|
|３０’s the whole face is getting rounded|
|４０’s each part of face is sagging|
|５０’s the effect on face looks flatter|
There are several possible causes of those changes with age :
Reduced skin hydration
Reduced muscle mass
Poor facial expression and more…
The purpose of acupuncture for face ①
Activate cells with acupuncture stimulation,
it promotes skin turnover.
Our skin cell turns over at about 28 day’s cycle. However its speed gets slower and cycle is disturbed due to decreased metabolisms with irregular life habits or with age. These are the cause of skin dullness or blemishes.
As the needles puncture the skin, they create tiny wounds and stimulate the cells. It makes the cells activate into repair mode, and increase metabolisms and promote turnover with their own natural healing power.
The purpose of acupuncture for face②
By releasing and soften facial muscles,
more relax, more expressive.
In present day, eye strain is commonly seen in many people,
and at the same time our facial expressions(muscle) become stiff.
Watching smartphone, PC, TV, Game, and so on…
Those irritates sympathetic nerve so that you are in a state of tension,
and muscles become stiff.
We, our facial muscle need to be more relax.
Cosmetic acupuncture releases and soften our stiff facial muscle, and then it relieves eye strain. You may feel more expressive, more relax.
It may not so big but it gives you some change in facial contour.

The purpose of applying a micro current through the needles①
Approaching to the slack of lines or face
The fat of the face is divided into some layers.(Refer to the illustration below)
④Ligament, which lifts the ⓷superficial muscle membranes, made of collagen,
acupuncture and micro current stimulate ⓸ to activate the collagen.
It works to improve the slack of lines or skin of face.
Both of ⓸ and ⓷ are deeply related to fat sag or slack.

The purpose of applying a micro current through the needles②
Training for the facial muscle strength
There are more than 20 different muscles in the face and they make more than 60 facial expressions.
Same as the muscle tore on your body, exercise for the face is effective, but it is not easy to do yourself.
Cosmetic acupuncture and applying a micro current give good facial muscle tore, and then it can increase blood flow and distribute oxygen to the cell.
