About Cosmetic Acupuncture
WHAT'S AN ACUPUNCTURE FACELIFT?
Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-surgical 25-minute procedure that includes using specialized acupuncture needles (thinner than a human hair) to stimulate collagen growth and encourage circulation within the face. Treatments are painless and described as deeply relaxing.
Florida Complete Wellness uses needles along wrinkles, lines, and age spots to naturally utilize the body's healing process and bring fresh and natural bodily rejuvenating mechanisms to the areas stimulated.
After your first treatment you should notice a glow to your face (described as a freshly showered look.)
HOW WE KEEP COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE AFFORDABLE
While most cosmetic acupuncture can cost $75-$150 per treatment, we work to keep our costs low so that you can enjoy great results over a series of treatments. Results are typically seen after 5-10 treatments and patients are seen one at a time. At Florida Complete Wellness we use a membership model. Patients are treated In a relaxing setting and multiple patients are seen every hour. This keeps the pricing at an affordable cost for you and cuts down on lengthy intakes.

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE VS BOTOX AND SURGICAL FACELIFTS
A facelift, which requires general anesthesia and two to four weeks of recovery time, average somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000 Including anesthesia and facility fees, according to the Consumer Guide to Plastic Surgery. Because It's surgery with a general anesthesia, the procedure can take several hours and include at least one night in the hospital. Botox injections in Miami, which are made of botulinum toxin, temporarily remove wrinkles and lines on the face, and can cost between $300 and $1,000 depending on how many areas of the face are Injected, and are made to be repeated every six months, according to the Ethical Cosmetic Surgery Association. Finding a qualified doctor to administer Botox is key, as improperly done injections can result in temporary eyelid drooping and weakness in the facial muscles.
A Restylane treatment in Fort Lauderdale, another temporary fix sold as a facial filler made of an acid that's naturally occurring in the body, works to smooth wrinkles in the nose and mouth area and can cost between $500 and several thousand dollars per treatment, depending on the size of the area to be covered, according to the Ethical Cosmetic Surgery Association. Results last about six months in most people. Side effects can Include bruising, redness and itching, and patients with allergies may not be good candidates for Restylane.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a good alternative for women who don't want the side effects associated with a surgical facelift. Cosmetic acupuncture treatments have been clinically shown to erase fine lines, reduce deeper lines, lessen saggyiness, lift droopy eyelids, and a clear or reduce age spots. And, as an added bonus there is an overall rejuvenation that is not confined to your face. When the needles are applied to the body and face, production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, and skin is "plumped up." Other points are also used on the rest of the body to help aid in digestion, lose weight, and cause an overall anti-aging affect on the entire body.
