For optimal results this would be performed as a series of 10 to 12 treatments; ideally once a week between treatment. After that the condition of the skin is re- assessed, followed by once a month tune-ups to maintain results. 

However if your schedule does not permit weekly, then a max of 10 days apart. 

You can have stand alone cosmetic acupuncture treatments as well though if you are wanting a pick me up, facial boost and firming.

Yes. Deva will assess what is needed through your body based on your consultation and goals with your body and face.

Creating a quality skincare routine to continue to boost the results of your treatment is fantastic. Deva can discuss some ideal products for home use based on your goals. 

You can additionally have a skin consult with one of our licensed estheticians to come up with a well rounded home skincare routine based on your goals and concerns to do between visits with Deva. Products could range between cleanser, exfoliant, serums, masques, eye cream, oils and moisturizers.

Once a month treatment after a series is completed is recommended to maintain results.  

2-3 weeks after botox or fillers a cosmetic acupuncture treatment can be performed. This is to allow time for any botox or fillers to settle in and not risk moving.

The results are different for everyone, depending on age, lifestyle and current skincare regime. When Deva sees you in person she can discuss in further detail based on what is happening with your skin and body and  what results you can expect to see. 

Results can also be affected based on lifestyle, diet and home self-care. Taking internal herbal supplements that help to keep the skin and body moist and supple will immensely help to achieve desired results. Doing homecare, like jade rolling, facial gua sha and micro needling will greatly improve all aspects of these treatments and keep results going longer once the series is complete.  Deva will help to instruct you on supplements and homecare tools during the course of a series of cosmetic acupuncture.

Balanced health is achieved by having an unobstructed flow of life energy - called qi (chee) - through the meridian pathways of the body. When there is a blockage of the qi flow thru a meridian, pain, aging and ill health follows.
