Wild Beauty: What is Facial Acupuncture & Cupping?!

One of the worst things about moving, in my opinion, is having to find all new specialists. A new eyebrow person who understands what to do, a hairstylist you can trust with your look, etc. Since moving to SF, I’ve been on the hunt for an all new beauty team to help keep me looking great for modeling. Out of the blue, like the little beauty angel guru that she is, Dr. Kim Peirano of Lion’s Heart Wellness reached out to me. She wanted to see if I would be interested in trying facial acupuncture and cupping. I took this as a sign from the Beautyverse!

Now… if you know me, then you know I am TERRIFIED of needles. Yet the benefits of acupuncture are numerous and I’ve always been interested. For the sake of beauty, I decided to face my fear & not let it hold me back from this experience. I let Dr. Kim Peirano know that I would LOVE to experience a session with her. She let me know that during the session, I would be receiving facial acupuncture, LED therapy, micro-currents, Gua Sha, and lastly facial cupping. I was excited and scared and curious all at the same time. Would I be able to handle the pain? Would I back out after one needle? Was this really going to have the effect everyone said it would? But most importantly, would it work?

I arrived at my appointment eager and ready to see what all the fuss about acupuncture was about. Dr. Kim Peirano explained, in detail, how the procedures would go, what I should expect and what kinds of results I should hope to see. You can watch the full process on my IGTV/youtube!
