Dr. Datta is committed to exploring the recently expanding holistic approach to health and skincare. This was her motivation to become certified in acupuncture at Harvard University, including the use of cosmetic acupuncture for facial skin rejuvenation. This method is an extension of traditional acupuncture to treat signs of aging and overall skin health. You may consider this as a natural alternative to Botox or dermal fillers.
It most commonly requires a treatment course of twice weekly visits for 5 – 6 weeks with periodic maintenance treatments. The treatment will use needles at strategic points on the body and then focus on the face with tiny painless needles. Similar to microneedling, the micropunctures stimulate collagen and elastin growth below the skin surface. In addition the lymphatic and circulatory system are stimulated to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the skin for an “inside out” glow. Dr. Datta combines this with topical PRP or serums afterwards.
