What is Cosmetic Acupuncture in Clifton and how does it work?

Cosmetic Acupuncture Clifton
For facial rejuvenation acupuncture, needless are inserted on the face in upward direction for lifting effect. Distal Points in facial rejuvenation acupuncture are any acupuncture point not located on the face or neck. They always are placed according to the underlying TCM pattern presenting in each client. The other key reason to use distal points is to keep the person “grounded” and stop too much blood (and qi) rushing to their head.

Features of Cosmetic Acupuncture at Pulse Acupuncture in Clifton, NJ

Usually, needles are inserted using facial acupuncture points, under either end of the wrinkle to begin shortening it. This is a common technique to help prevent wrinkly elongating. In many cases the wrinkly will actually lift up during and after the treatment. This may worry the client, but it indicates a good result as it immediately moves blood. Facial cosmetic acupuncture works by tightening of connective tissue that is one of the main causes of changes in facial shape as we age. The best effect of acupuncture treatment is instant acupuncture face lift.

Pulse Acupuncture, located in Clifton, NJ, offers a range of complementary products to enhance and support the acupuncture treatment experience.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Therapy in Clifton


Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese Beauty tool which translates as “scraping board”. They target specific points on the face and so have a deeper therapeutic effect. Some limited research has been done on Gua Sha therapy and it shows an increase in microcirculation of up to 400% following a single treatment. This aids skin nutrition before Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatment.

Cosmetic cupping is performed as moving cupping in an upwards and outwards direction across the face. Cupping also produces all the usual benefits of massage such as increased lymphatic drainage, improved microcirculation. Additionally, research has shown that cupping may actually break up old connective tissue.

RED Light Therapeutic Devices

Using RED Light Therapeutic Devices in conjunction with Cosmetic Acupuncture gives good visible results. We use Celluma Red Light Therapy, Tomma Red therapy Dome and Far-Infrared/Near-Infrared Onnetsu Dome. Every session that red light is applied after facial acupuncture treatment, red light benefits the entire body, because factors released from cells which receive red light promote proper function in cells adjacent to them. Furthermore, blood cells also absorb red light, so as it passes the area of the body being exposed to red light, the light absorbed will then travel through the bloodstream and end up nourishing cells in other regions of the body. This means that all red light sessions reward the entire body as a whole or holistically. Red light therapeutic range: 620-700 nm. Red light protects the body from damaging radiation and bolster energy production inside every cell with which they interact.

Dear Dr.Marina Doktorman,I hope this message finds you well! I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible impact your acupuncture sessions have had on my life. Your expertise and care have helped me find relief and healing in ways I never thought possible.When I first sought acupuncture, I was struggling with a combination of issues that affected my overall well-being. Chronic back pain was causing constant discomfort, and my restless nights were dominated by persistent night sweats. Additionally, I was battling frustrating skin issues that seemed to resist all other forms of treatment.From the very first session, I knew I was in good hands. Your thorough understanding of my concerns and willingness to explain the acupuncture process put me at ease. The ambiance of your clinic created a serene and comforting space, setting the tone for a transformative healing journey.What amazed me most was the efficacy of acupuncture in addressing my various health challenges. The impact on my sleep was nothing short of miraculous. After a few sessions, I began experiencing deep, uninterrupted sleep, waking up refreshed and energized—a change I had been longing for, but never found through other methods.Furthermore, the improvement in my skin condition was remarkable. Acupuncture seemed to trigger a healing response, and gradually, my skin issues started to fade away. I couldn't believe the visible transformation, and it did wonders for my self-confidence.As for the night sweats and back pain, they became less frequent and intense with each session. Your targeted approach and skillful needle placement directly addressed the root causes of my discomfort, providing much-needed relief and easing the burdens I had carried for far too long.I cannot stress enough how appreciative I am for the positive impact you've had on my life. Your dedication to helping your patients achieve better health and well-being is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone seeking holistic and effective solutions to their health issues.Once again, thank you for your expertise, kindness, and genuine care. You have not only been my acupuncturist but also a catalyst for transformative change in my life. I am forever grateful for the healing journey we embarked on together.Thank you Dr. Marina Doktorman!

Marina is amazing! She truly understands what she’s doing and how to help. I had terrible back pain and sciatica when I was pregnant to the point that I wasn’t sleeping at night. She was able to provide me relief. I felt like a new person walking out of her office.

M.D., the acupuncturist is one of a kind! I’ve been to several people and she is outstanding. She’s kind, thorough, professional and never makes you feel hurried. Her technique is wonderful and effective. She talks to you & explains carefully what she is looking to achieve. She doesn’t mind going the extra mile to assist you with your issue. I also appreciate that she is always professionally developing her craft. She is constantly learning new methods & techniques that she studies, sometimes here, sometimes abroad. I highly recommend Marina Doctorman as a first class acupuncturist, plus!! E.M.

This place is awesome! Such a relaxing experience. Marina addresses all my concerns and always makes me feel comfortable. The treatments I received here have solved several of my health issues in just a few sessions after years of OTC medication. I would definitely recommend Pulse for serious health concerns and even if you just want some stress relief or add a new beauty treatment to your regimen! A+ for Marina Doktorman.

I was a patient of Marina Doktorma for about two weeks (October/November 2020), receiving acupuncture treatments for lower back and knee pain. Marina is a true professional. Before beginning each treatment, she explained the treatment options and made sure that I was well informed and comfortable before beginning. She was very gentle as she administered the treatments, (I feel asleep a few times) communicating with me throughout the process. In addition to the premise being very clean, relaxing music made for a very calming experience. Without hesitation, I would return for future treatments if the pain returns. Kenny.

Cosmetic Acupuncture Clifton - FAQ

Cosmetic Acupuncture works by inserting fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the face and neck. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and hydration. The treatment also increases blood flow to the face, promoting a healthier and more radiant complexion.
The number of Cosmetic Acupuncture sessions required will vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and desired results. Generally, a series of 10-12 sessions is recommended, with treatments occurring 1-2 times per week. After the initial series, maintenance sessions may be scheduled every 4-6 weeks to maintain results.
Facial Acupuncture offers numerous benefits, including:
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Tightening of sagging skin
