The upcoming Certificate in Cosmetic Acupuncture and TCM Dermatology is coming on the weekend of June 27-28, 2020 at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.
Throughout my career at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine as a faculty member and a clinic supervisor (2010-2016), I developed a clinic curriculum in body rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture, training students in facial and body rejuvenation techniques without the opportunity of giving them a professional certificate. My interest in the field began when I was first introduced to cosmetic acupuncture in Siberia, where I traveled and practiced with the group of physicians. Later, in the United States, I was introduced to this modality by my college professors who learned it in China. In response to my own interest, as well as the overwhelming academic and public demand, I have developed a new program that trains and certifies Medical Doctors, Doctors of Chiropractic, Doctors of Dentistry, Doctors of Osteopathy, and Licensed Acupuncturists in Cosmetic Acupuncture.
I conduct trainings and seminars in various fields of eastern medicine. After many years of practice and teaching, I have perfected a curriculum to tailor to the interests of medical practitioners, as well as the changing demands of the field. Taught by the only instructor of Integrative Cosmetic Medicine in the Midwest, this program gives physicians a strong edge in the filed by helping them expand their patient base by meeting the rising demand for cosmetic acupuncture. In 2019, this seminar was approved by the NCCAOM, and now it provides 14PDA/CEU for the acupuncture licenses throughout the United States.

Acupuncture is a widely applied, basic self-maintenance modality of facial rejuvenation in the United States and abroad. I've developed and implemented a clinic curriculum in facial and body rejuvenation for the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, and have conducted classes and seminars on Cosmetic Acupuncture at PCOM as well. One of its most popular applications is Acupuncture Facelift. The benefits of it include collagen formation, improved blood and energy circulation, higher skin cell regeneration rate, the improved metabolic function of kidneys, liver, and intestines, increased rate of waste and toxin evacuation, and the reduction of puffiness and sagginess of facial skin. Acupuncture Facelift helps reduce and eliminate jowls, tighten the chin line, reduce the appearance of deep and superficial wrinkles, reduce crow's feet lines by the eyes, lift sagging upper eyelids, restore facial symmetry, reduce marks and scars, and improve physical appearance in general. The Acupuncture Facelift leaves no stretch marks, scars, or facial asymmetry after treatment. The price of Acupuncture Facelift is highly competitive compared with the price of the same procedure done surgically. After treatment, facial skin appears naturally glowing and healthy. I recommend to have 10-12 biweekly treatments to achieve a stable result. After the re-evaluation upon completion, I may recommend to repeat the same protocol in 6 months. In the world of Integrative Medicine, we believe, that our face reflects our spirit. Using this concept,
I help my patients re-connect with happiness and achieve higher level of satisfaction in life, so their facial appearance will reflect it.
To quote Coco Chanel: "Beauty care should start with the heart and soul, otherwise cosmetics won't help"
In my practice I apply various techniques and tools. I use pre-sterilized disposable needles, gua sha for facial sculpting, acu-lift derma roller, cupping and Chinese pharmaceutical herbal formulas.
The AcuLift™ Dermal Roller (a collagen induction therapy) can help treat signs of aging (such as fine lines and wrinkles), tighten loose skin, reduce acne scars and stretch marks, smooth cellulite, and help reduce hair loss. When Derma Roller is used before applying topical lotions or hair loss products, its effectiveness is greatly increased.
Derma Roller offers a safe alternative to treatments such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels or dermabrasion, or laser. It provides a non-invasive, easy-to-use and affordable way to improve the appearance of skin or hair.
In my practice I apply THE DERMA ROLLER THAT IS APPROVED BY THE AMERICAN ACUPUNCTURE COUNCIL.
