WHAT IS AN ACUSKIN?
ACUSKIN is a fusion treatment that works on the CELLULAR level.
I am trained by the New York acupuncturist Dr.Travall Croom who treats from VS Models to various Hollywood celebrities. The ACUSKIN (a.k.aSynergy Facial) has gained huge popularity worldwide in the last couple of years.
It combines Acupuncture, LED Light Therapy and Microcurrent Therapy which rejuvenates the skin and improves COLLAGEN and ELASTIN production. Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can:
• Improve circulation and balance the body's underlying imbalances
• Reduce fine lines and WRINKLES
• Increase smoothness and improve SKIN TEXTURE
• Improve SKIN TONE by balancing out surface irregularities due to aging
• Reduce HYPERPIGMENTATION caused by sun damage
• Reduce PORE SIZE
• Reduce symptoms of ACNE
• Increase FIRMNESS and TIGHTNESS in the skin
• Improve laxity and LIFT the skin
With the help of very fine facial and body needles and
LED Light Therapy and Microcurrent Therapy,
BLOOD and OXYGEN FLOW is supplied to the skin and healing begins.
The specifically customized acupuncture treatment is always combined with body points to treat
the underlying imbalances in the body therefore ACUSKIN is
not a cosmetic but a holistic therapeutic treatment on many different
levels for various skin problems.
HOW DOES LIGHT ENERGY WORK?
LED Red Light Therapy emits low-power red light wavelengths to the skin and is absorbed into the skin to a depth of about 8 to 10 millimeters, at which point it has positive effects on cellular energy (ATP), the nervous system and metabolic processes. LED Red Light Therapy increases blood circulation, helping to bring more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and cells. It improves natural collagen and fibroblasts production, two components that are important in a youthful skin appearance. Tissues are repaired and natural healing is achieved, as well as a lowering of oxidative stress, something highly associated with the aging process.
The MICROCURRENT treatment emits low-voltage electrical currents that simulate the body’s own electrical output. It triggers the body’s production of amino acids and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) which accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production.
MICROCURRENT therapy is a FACIAL WORKOUT that trains the muscles on the face on a cellular level. Three specific frequencies are used during the treatment. One frequency RELAXES the muscles that have tightened on the face causing winkles while the other TONES and strengthens the muscles that have weakened causing the face to sag. Another frequency is used to simultaneously REPAIR the production of collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This treatment is great as a single facial to revive the skin, but for best, lasting results, we recommend a series of 12 visits.
The sessions are spaced out 2 times a week over a course of 6 weeks.

I have found sessions with Elif to be really beneficial. They are not only addressing the issue I sought treatment for but have improved my sleep as well. Her clinic is clean and peaceful and Elif is kind and caring. She is obviously very knowledgeable and technically good at what she does and always has a thorough treatment plan ready for each session. Highly recommend her and so grateful to have found her!
I have been to Elif a few times and have enjoyed every experience. Most recently I had an acufacial and my face was literally glowing :D The treatments are super relaxing!
