Everything you need to know about Cosmetic Acupuncture!
Cosmetic Acupuncture Botox alternative that can help refresh your face, smooth your skin, build collagen, and calm down redness. Learn how Dr. Josh Hanson is using Cosmetic Acupuncture in Tampa, FL to help rejuvenate your skin.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a time tested Eastern Medicine treatment to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and tired sagging skin and redness. A specialized doctor will target the muscles of facial expression to either tighten or relax them. Dr. Josh Hanson has also developed a special technique similar to PDO Thread Lifts where he uses an acupuncture needle and threads it along sagging skin to stimulate collagen production and tighten it.
What Happens During a Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatment?
The treatment begins with a gentle cleansing then the hair thin needles are inserted in specific locations to help the facial muscles that are tight to relax and to activate the muscles that have weakened and were causing the face to sag or droop.
While the pins are doing their job to get active your skin’s own healing mechanisms Dr. Josh Hanson turbocharged your treatment with LED Therapy. The short version is this: light therapy delivers safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light to your skin and cells, with no chemicals, UV rays, or excess heat. That means it increases blood circulation, oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and cells and less inflammation.
After the procedure you have the option to add a customized peptide healing mask!
Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Hurt?
It sounds like putting small needles in your face would hurt but the quickness of the procedure make it really comfortable. Most people end up taking a relaxing nap for 15 minutes during their treatment. Expect to leave with a nice glow!

How Often Should I Get Cosmetic Acupuncture Done?
It really depends on your skin and what your goals are. If your skin is something you care about and you have a specific concern then we generally recommend weekly treatments for a series of times. Once your concerns have been addressed and stabilized then we move to monthly touch-up treatments.
If you have an event coming up then we recommend a glow up treatment a few days beforehand so your skin is looking amazing!
What Should I Look For Before I Try Cosmetic Acupuncture?
“A lot of places don’t have the skills to thread the skin, so you don’t get the same lifting effect,” Dr. Hanson says. “You should ask if they perform the Dr. Hanson Vector Lift, if they use a growth factor serum, if they use a mask, and if they use light therapy . These all help to get the best result.” (And may result in a higher price, FYI.)
