Why try cosmetic acupuncture in Lenexa?

01

Non-invasive and pain-free

Acupuncture requires the use of very thin, small needles. We insert these needles 1/4 to 1/2 inch into the skin, which is shallow. Most patients report having absolutely no discomfort during treatment, and some may even find it relaxing. 

02

Improved Collagen Production

As we age, our body reduce our production of collagen—which your body uses as a natural healing element to help keep healthy, tight, and glowing. Cosmetic acupuncture in Lenexa helps to stimulate lymphatic drainage, which will help new collagen build up in the treatment area! 

03

Improved Blood Circulation

Applying needles directly to the specific treatment area triggers an immune response in your body. Ultimately, this helps improve blood circulation at the acupuncture point–which will lead to reduced deep tissue inflammation.

What to Expect?

Consultation

At Mind Body Shen, we customize treatments plans based on your unique concerns and desired results. All of our treatments begin with an in-depth consultation during which we will discuss factors such as lifestyle, symptoms, and treatment details.

Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment

We will show you to one of our comfortable and clean treatment rooms. Your provider will let you know if you need to remove any clothing, and we will provide you with a towel or gown. You'll sit or lay down depending on the areas of treatment. Cosmetic acupuncture primarily focuses on aesthetic concerns of the face, although your provider can also use this method to treat skin concerns throughout your body.  Your provider inserts very thin needles, and may gently twist them or provide mild electrical pulses.

Add-Ons

Depending on your unique goals for acupuncture, we can also add on any of the following services to your appointment:
Gua Sha
Cupping
LED Light Therapy
Microneedling

Recovery

There is absolutely no downtime associated with acupuncture, and you are free to return to all normal activities immediately following the treatment. You may experience possible short-term side effects immediately after treatment—including bruising, soreness, twitching muscles, and minor bleeding at the acupuncture site. 

Before receiving your Cosmetic Acupuncture in Lenexa from Mind Body Shen, we recommend you:

Make sure to eat a full meal 1 to 2 hours prior to your appointment. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Arrive to your appointment in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.
