Updated: Apr 12, 2022

At Botanical Point, your skin goals are an expectation we work to meet and exceed. Combining the knowledge of Western Medical Esthetics and Eastern Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. Jessica tailors each appointment to clients individual skin goals - working from the inside-out. After establishing a treatment plan, the next step of a Cosmetic Acupuncture session is to evaluate specific skin type. Skin types are categorized as either oily, dry or combination/t-zone. Knowing skin type is essential for selecting products for external application for optimal results.

Cosmetic Acupuncture for Oily Skin

Having oily skin has its pros and cons. These individuals will be more prone to breakouts but less likely to develop wrinkles. For oily skin types, close attention must be paid to the condition inside the body via a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) lens. Mainly we are looking for a strong digestive system and the absence of damp/phlegm or heat. These internal pathogens are what fuel breakouts. This is why Cosmetic Acupuncture is so effective, we are not only cleaning the pores and killing acne bacteria externally, but also harmonizing the individual as a whole.
