Based on the success of acupuncture in the treatment of Bell’s Palsy, Dr. Tsuchida has incorporated acupuncture face-lifts into his practice using many of the Bell’s Palsy points to attain the desired cosmetic affect.
With acupuncture, no foreign substances are injected into the body which could possibly result in infection or rejection.
For cosmetic purposes, Dr. Tsuchida uses needles with or without electrical stimulation. He uses very fine needles on the face for cosmetic acupuncture. If the patient can tolerate stronger stimulation, electro-acupuncture will augment the desired effect.
