Cosmetic acupuncture is the method of applying needles to achieve benefits of circulation, detoxification, and more efficient repair. It is different than regular acupuncture because the needles only penetrate 3mm deep! At this depth, we target the dermal layer: the elastin and collagen matrix just beneath the skin.

Consider pairing Cosmetic Acupuncture with Bio-Injections or Micro-Needling/Nano-Needling. Bio-injections help infuse resources into the dermal matrix while the Cosmetic Acupuncture tells the body how to use those resources in the form of a controlled inflammation process. With Micro-Needling, you are not penetrating at as deep of layer. Micro-needling is a comprehensive exfoliation method that helps to reveal new skin to the surface. Nano-needling is even finer and more superficial.

For best results, consult with a provider to come up with a plan for your specific skin, constitution, and age.



As a deep “resurfacing” type of treatment, Micro & Nano-Needling is a comprehensive exfoliation process. Apple-stem cells are paired with Hyaluronic Acid and Chinese Medicine herbs to create specialized serums for each client depending on their needs. Our skin absorbs the stem cells and nutrients form the herbs and utilizes these resources in its repair and reconstruction process.


As a popular Add-On, Cosmetic Cupping and Guasha are ancient massage techniques that stimulate circulation, help release muscle tension. When applied to the face, it generally helps to round out your skincare regimen at Rebel Med NW. If you get your own set of tools, our providers can teach you tips and techniques for giving yourself and at-home facial massage.

Cosmetic Needling is actually quite ZEN

In fact, many side effects of cosmetic acupuncture, much like conventional acupuncture, are actually positive!
