Dr. Meade practices acupuncture and associated techniques such as gua sha, cupping, Kinesio tape, light therapy, and infrared crystal mat therapy for pain management and overall wellness.
As you age, your skin reduces its elasticity which causes more wrinkles, lines, and blemishes. All you need is a couple of moments every day of squinting into the sun, your phone screen, or dealing with everyday stress to age your appearance by years.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that uses acupuncture to improve skin and fight the aging process. Sometimes referred to as an “acupuncture facelift” or “facial rejuvenation,” cosmetic acupuncture often is used as an alternative to surgical facelifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of aging in the skin.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is typically facial acupuncture and has traditionally been used to help with pain and stress relief, but more people have discovered its wrinkle reducing benefits as well. Not everyone is comfortable with anti-aging procedures like facelifts and Botox injections and prefer a more natural approach and subtle results over more drastic treatments. We provide cosmetic acupuncture to Albuquerque and all of New Mexico.
When you need an all-natural and safe outpatient way of improving your appearance, cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling may be the ideal solution for your needs. Over time, Acuqueruque has switched its focus from traditional Acupuncture to Cosmetic Acupuncture and Microneedling with a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) approach. After only 4 treatments, once per month, patients notice improvements that last for years.
What Does a Cosmetic Treatment Entail?
When microneedling is performed, you are made comfortable on the table and a numbing cream is applied. After thirty minutes the numbing agent is removed and Dr. Meade applies hyaluronic acid and a TCM serum. This is used to help the pen glide across the skin. After your microneedling appointment you may feel like you have a sunburn and can resume your normal activities the next day. This can only be done once a month. After four to six sessions, you can really see the results.
Nano needling can be done at any time. Because there is no insertion of needles and no numbing agent is required. This is done in between microneedling and improves the overall treatments. This treatment takes about twenty minutes.
When you choose Acuquerque, we carefully apply our best method of fighting back against aging with targeted needle insertions where your skin needs the most rejuvenation. By promoting increased collagen growth from your body’s naturally released chemicals, it can help lessen lines and wrinkles and promote a younger, more youthful appearance. Whether you need help getting your confidence back or remain uncomfortable about cosmetic surgery, our experienced acupuncturists are ready to help you. Contact us for the best in Albuquerque, NM cosmetic acupuncture.
Rest assured that while most people come for the cosmetic benefits, you’ll most certainly notice other benefits as well!
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy, or collagen therapy. The results that patients see from Collagen Induction Therapy before and after are nothing less than extraordinary, with patients having noticeably clearer skin even immediately after their first treatment. Acuquerque provides state of the art microneedling in Albuquerque.
Nano needlinG ACUPUNCTURE
These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin. Nano needling only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15 mm of the skin. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment includes pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime. This treatment can be done weekly to exfoliate the skin. Within 15 minutes after nano needling, the nano channels close themselves. Nano needling is gentle and safe, but very effective.

What will the acupuncture treatment entail? In our clinic, we offer acupuncture in albuquerque — the first treatment is about two hours. During this session we will ask you questions about what brought you in, and about your health history. We will ask you about your medications, so having a list is a great idea. From there, we proceed to getting you comfortable on a massage table as the needles will be placed in the points that we have individualized for you. We will also use a heat lamp which is infrared. You will rest comfortably for about forty-five minutes. After the acupuncture treatment we will often perform additionial procedures such as cupping, gua sha, massage, and or Kinesio taping. This will all be discussed with you before any procedure is done. A treatment plan will be discussed with you at the end of your first treatment. The follow up acupuncture treatments are completed in an hour.

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese healing method in which professionals use a smooth-edge tool to stroke the skin while applying pressure. This motion raises small, red, rash-like dots that show under your skin called petechiae. It is used to help chronic pain all over the body and helps with flus and colds.
Cupping is a practice used in traditional medicine in several parts of the world. It involves creating suction on the skin using a glass, ceramic, bamboo, or plastic cup. Negative pressure is created in the cup either by applying a flame to the cup to remove oxygen before placing it on the skin or by attaching a suction device to the cup after it is placed on the skin. Premier athletes have used this technique to help with their pain, as has been noticed during the most recent Olympic games.
Kinesiology tape is really stretchy.
Dr. Kase created Kinesio tape with a proprietary blend of cotton and nylon. It’s designed to mimic the skin’s elasticity so you can use your full range of motion. The tape’s medical-grade adhesive is also water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for three to five days, even while you work out or take showers. When the tape is applied to your body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin. It is believed that this helps to create a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath it. This tape is used in rehabilitation, injuries, and enhancing performance.
