Facial Rejuvenation or Cosmetic Acupuncture involves inserting fine sterile needles into the face, neck, hands, wrists, legs in an effort to help minimize and soften the appearance of deep and fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help take years off of your face without the use of Botox, chemical peels or surgery.
