Welcome to Cosmetic Acupuncture and Dermapen
BlueWhite Health Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine clinic provides our Kamloops clients with Acupuncture and Dermapen treatments. These two treatments are beneficial in stimulating your body’s natural healing processes, and in addressing scarring and acne. Below are some frequently asked questions and answers about these safe, alternative treatments to facial rejuvenation!
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture, also called Facial Acupuncture, is the safer and less invasive alternative to surgery or Botox. We will insert painless needles on the face and/or body which will create positive microtraumas resulting in increased collagen production as well as stimulating your lymphatic and circulatory system.
What is Cosmetic Dermapen and how does it work?
The Dermapen is a revolutionary Micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. Dermapen consists of an electric hand-piece and a disposable needle tip. By sliding the pen on the skin, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and improves the complexion on the face, as well as lightening up the pigmentation on spots.
The Dermapen can help with
• Tightening and rejuvenating skin
• Increasing elastin production
• Hydrating skin
• Improving sun-damaged skin
While visibly reducing the appearance of
• Aging skin
• Vertical lip lines
• Hyper pigmentation
• Aging spots
• Enlarged/dilated pores
• Stretch marks
• Scars (acne, surgical and burns)
*when used in conjunction with topical treatment
What is collagen & How does treatment help?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is the substance that holds the whole body together. It is found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons to provide strength and structure. It is required in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells.
Unfortunately, collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and leading to sagging skin, the formation of lines and wrinkles and the weakening of cartilage in joints.
The Dermapen stimulates your own collagen production in a subtle and healthy way. This technology was performed in China back hundreds of years ago to keep a youthful look. By increasing collagen production we can see all the above benefits in a matter of just a few sessions. Increased blood circulation in the dermis layer helps accelerate the self-healing power of the skin.
Is it painful?
With the help of anesthetic cream to be applied on skin before the procedure, most people actually felt it’s like a gentle touch to their surprise. Some people may even fall asleep during the entire procedure.
How many treatments are recommended?
• Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart
• Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart
• Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
Cosmetic Acupuncture and Dermapen will naturally help the skin look younger, more uplifted, tighter, rejuvenated, and these treatments improve the skin’s overall health and circulation. Unlike Botox or dermal filler, Cosmetic Acupuncture will significantly improve skin tone and brighten complexion without harming the nerves or muscle junction, while also maintaining a natural looking facial expression.
