Is Acupuncture Safe?

Acupuncture is a natural, drug-free therapy, with no side effects except feelings of relaxation and well-being. Acupuncture uses the insertion of thin, sterile, filiform/solid needles into specific points on the body called acupuncture points. There is little risk of infection from acupuncture needles because they are sterile, used once, and then discarded.

Cosmetic acupuncture starts with a 1.5 hour initial visit which includes an intake and treatment. All following treatments last ~1 hour each. To optimize results, ten visits for scheduled at 2 times a week for 5 weeks.
