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

Cosmetic Acupuncture in Brooklyn
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 Brooklyn, NYC

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.

Complementary products during the treatment at Pulse Acupuncture in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

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


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

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.

To understand what I'm talking about, you have to try it for yourself.After 10 minutes of the procedure, you get into a different reality. Marina is knowledgeable, answers all the questions. After the procedure, the skin of the face glows, the body becomes lighter by a couple of pounds. I've been looking for such a procedure and state of mind for a long time.

Pulse Acupuncture is exactly what I’ve been looking for to treat my migraines! Marina is knowledgeable, professional, asks probing questions and does fire cupping! She also has a very serene and clean office that makes me feel so relaxed and I never feel rushed during my sessions. Marina is truly incredible - her treatments help me mitigate migraines and I highly recommend her for any acupuncture/holistic health needs!! (I’ve tried other practitioners in the area and none have compared to Marina’s experience and professionalism.)

When I first came to Marina, I felt constant pressure in my lower back, tension in my upper back and lack of energy. During the first session I could literally feel something shifting inside in those areas she was working on. Her touch was so gentle that I didn’t even feel the needles go in. The time stopped, I was relaxed, calm and peaceful. Besides acupuncture I had some cupping done as well. The cups relieved a great deal of pressure from my upper and lower back. After the session I immediately felt the effect. Have my next session scheduled for next week. I would definitely recommend Marina to those seeking holistic ways to deal with muscle, spine, and pain issues. She is a miracle worker!

After doing acupuncture, heat therapy, and cupping with her, I felt instant relief and relaxation. In addition, Marina’s treatment helped me feel relief from neck and back pain, as well as to feel grounded and connected to my body. I would highly recommend Marina to anyone.

I’ve had great acupuncture experience at Pulse Acupuncture. Marina was able to fix my neck strain in just one treatment. It was not painful and actually very relaxing. Cupping and massage followed after acupuncture session. This was the most relief I’ve had in a long time. Loved the healing vibe of this beautiful studio.

Cosmetic Acupuncture - 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
  • Reduction of facial puffiness
  • Minimization of acne and acne scars/li>
Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Digestive track problems, hiccups
