Science is only beginning to grasp the powerful medicine that is Acupuncture and understand the mechanisms behind it so it’s no wonder that Acupuncture has broadened its scope to include the world of beauty.
If addressing complaints is acupuncture’s speciality then cosmetic improvements are right up its alley; it can improve skin quality, help heal acne and acne scars while promoting collagen production which in turn help treat and prevent the signs of aging.
“The fine lines and wrinkles in our upper face are created by repetitive motion” says Dr. Yuliya. “Think of a piece of paper, smooth and flawless, much like our faces at birth. But with repeated use, folding and crinkling, or in our case, the repeated use of facial expressions, you start to see near permanent effects as you would folds and creases in a piece of paper.” Dr. Yuliya’s technique promotes relaxation of those muscles and as well as encouraging the production of collagen. The same can be achieved for the fine lines and wrinkles that occur on the lower half of the face, however those are caused by a loss of volume and hyaluronic acid. Dr. Yuliya assures that her innovative technique boosts the production of that as well. She seamlessly blends the best of classical acupuncture theory with cutting edge non invasive scientific theory to elevate cosmetic acupuncture to new levels.

Dr. Yuliya’s technique ensures the patient enjoys a relaxing and soothing experience by targeting specific points in both the facial tissue and areas of the body which re-energizes those muscles. After the needles are inserted, a collagen-infused face mask and an ATP resonance frequency machine is applied to drive collagen deep into the tissue. “My technique tightens and lifts the face much like a face lift. The applied mask and ATP resonance biotherapy are used to stimulate ATP production so that the body has the energy and building blocks it needs to rejuvenate and replenish the facial tissue.
ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is an energy carrying molecule that naturally occurs in all living things. It powers cellular processes, acting as a channel delivering energy to places within the cell where energy-consuming activities are taking place. In this case, targeting the cells that create collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin to reduce and reverse the signs of aging.
