Most of us are concerned about the way we look. Our outward appearance affects how we feel about ourselves and how we present ourselves to the world. At Pinewood, we understand that it’s important for you to put your best face forward. We want to help you achieve beautiful, healthy skin and hair – naturally.

At Pinewood, we believe that cosmetic care doesn’t have to be painful or invasive. We can help you combat the effects of aging and the environment utilizing safe and natural practices.

Skin Care Protocols

Skin is the largest organ in our body and our body’s first line of defense against environmental toxins. As we age, our skin can be affected by a variety of factors such as how often we expose our skin to the sun, how we care for our skin, injuries or surgery, susceptibility to acne, and more. These factors can result in dull skin, scars, wrinkles, spots, cellulite, and more.

If you are unhappy with how your skin looks, we can help you possibly address the outward signs of aging with natural treatments, homeopathic, fruit acids, and vitamins. We offer skin and hair care protocols that can address your skin and hair concerns.

Hair Care Protocols

Hair needs a healthy internal environment to grow. However, sometimes the environment is not optimal. The aging process and hormonal imbalances are often the culprits. Yet all is not lost! Pinewood has designed two protocols to help possibly address thinning and falling hair. These treatments may be especially of benefit in women.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture 

facial acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture combines the wisdom of traditional Chinese acupuncture with specialized facial acupuncture to help you look and feel healthy and rejuvenated. It is a form of “anti-aging medicine” because it works internally to optimize your health while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of your skin. Check with your extended health insurance plan to see if this treatment is covered.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is both preventative and corrective so you can begin at any age. Beginning these treatments in your late twenties or early thirties can literally slow down the aging process by boosting your collagen and improving the health of your skin and body. If you are in your forties, fifties, or sixties, these treatments will turn back the hands of time by softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in brighter skin and a more youthful overall appearance.

At Pinewood Natural Health Centre, Dr. Ana Nazari, BSc, ND provides Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments.

Some of the benefits of Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture that are possible:

  • Improve muscle tone and facial colour
