Facial Acupuncture

We offer a personalized treatment plan that is specifically designed to meet your individual cosmetic needs with a goal of improving skin health, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenating your appearance.

What we offer

  • Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture

    A non-invasive, natural method involving fine needle insertion into specific facial points to boost collagen, enhance blood flow, reduce wrinkles, and achieve a youthful glow.

  • Microneedling

    Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling employs fine needles to create micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural wound healing process, promoting the production of collagen and elastin in fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Nanoneedling

    A newer and less invasive approach, nanoneedling utilizes a textured surface to create microscopic channels in the skin, smoothing out skin tone and improving the absorption of skincare products.

What to expect

Dr. Shamapant takes immense satisfaction in creating personalized treatment plans that cater to your specific needs and goals, which is why she offers free 15-minute consultations.

Additionally, you have the option to enhance your treatment experience by utilizing our exclusive line of professional cosmetic products specially designed to complement and support your acupuncture sessions.

  • Before treatment

    Limit sun exposure and avoid using products with retinoids, AHAs, BHAs, or strong exfoliants for a week before the procedure. Refrain from other skin treatments like chemical peels, facial hair waxing, laser therapy, or IPL within two weeks of your microneedling appointment. Lastly, please abstain from alcohol 24 hours prior to your procedure.

  • During treatment

    Each treatment is 75 minutes long and includes LED light therapy, a 3-type serum cocktail, and an aloe vera facial mask. It ends with a cooling facial oil/gua sha massage.

  • After Treatment

    Your practitioner will send you home with a goodie bag that includes the aftercare instructions and a day cream sample. Follow all the aftercare instructions to achieve optimal results.

I’ve been frequenting Lokahi for the past year. I’ve seen several practitioners here: JB for pain, Susannah and Andrea for fertility/prenatal Acupuncture and Smriti for cosmetic Acupuncture. I have seen great improvements in my physical and mental health after each visit. What sets Lokahi apart from all other places in the Bay Area is that all the practitioners work really well together and share detailed notes about your progress, what worked well for you and they focus on that. Each one of them is awesome and I’m so grateful for them.
