When fashion designer Norma Karmali tore her meniscus, she was determined to find a way to relieve her knee pain without resorting to surgery.
Through her research, she learned about Dr. Jingduan Yang of the Yang Institute. Dr. Yang used acupuncture to alleviate Karmali's knee pain, and it worked so well that she decided to try facial acupuncture to improve her skin and ease signs of aging.
“The morning after my first facial treatment, I looked like I had a great night’s sleep,” Kamali said to T: The New York Times Style Magazine in an article they wrote about the benefits of acupuncture. “People kept complimenting me.” After a year of weekly sessions with Dr. Yang, she said the results have been astonishing. “I feel and think I look a lot fresher. But more than skin-deep. He addresses your emotional health, your immune system and everything to do with wellness.”

How does cosmetic acupuncture restore radiance and vitality?
Facial Acupuncture is a non-surgical treatment that helps reduce signs of aging and restores the radiance of youth. It is based on the 2,500-year-old principles of traditional Chinese medicine. In his book Facing East Dr. Yang discusses the top three reasons why facial acupuncture works for healthier skin and anti-aging:
- External signs of smooth and healthy-looking skin are usually a reflection of the health of some internal organs, such as kidneys.
- Facial and body needling along the meridians, or energy pathways, of these organs help to restore radiance and vitality in one’s face. It works holistically, both on one’s physical appearance and underlying factors that affect a healthy, glowing complexion.
- The cosmetic acupuncture treatment promotes the circulation of energy and blood in the face which increases the amount of oxygen getting to the skin as well as collagen production for increased muscle tone and elasticity.
Why Choose Facial Acupuncture Over Botox or Surgery?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is healthier, safer, and less expensive than surgical facelifts and chemical injections. It is non-invasive, pain-free, requires no recovery time, and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement or scarring. It will bring out your innate beauty and radiance for lasting and natural-looking results.
