Cosmetic Acupuncture in St. John’s – Increased Vitality & No Surgery

Thank you for your interest in cosmetic acupuncture, a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, cosmetic acupuncture addresses not only the signs of aging but also your overall health.


We say overall health because cosmetic acupuncture is not just skin deep. The acupuncturists at Back To Health treat not only your face, but we also address your whole body, just like a traditional acupuncture treatment. You start looking healthier and have more vitality because you feel healthier inside too.


Cosmetic acupuncture works by increasing qi (pronounced chee) and blood circulation to the area being needled, which results in fewer wrinkles, smoother skin tone, tighter skin and increased elasticity, and much more. From the Western medicine viewpoint, needling can cause cells to release more collagen and elastin. Cosmetic acupuncture is less expensive, healthier and safer than modern procedures. It is virtually risk free with none of the side effects associated with surgery such as scarring, prolonged bruising or numbness.


What to Expect

For optimal results, treatments are scheduled twice a week for 5 weeks (10 treatments), but more may be needed depending on your skin condition. If you need results faster (like for a big event), contact Back To Health to ask your practitioner about other possible schedules.


Your first consultation will include an overview of your health in regards to Chinese medicine. We will discuss the influence of diet, exercise and lifestyle as it relates to your particular condition.


Once we have completed the initial overview, you will be given suggestions to help you on your way to better skin health, which may include Chinese herbal medicine, nutritional counselling, exercise recommendations and skin care regimen, in addition to acupuncture.


Each treatment takes from 45 to 60 minutes. Results can last from 3 to 5 years. After the initial 10-treatment regimen, a maintenance schedule can be tailored to your needs.


SkinPen® Microneedling Treatment

SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.

How does microneedling work? It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
