We are human beings, when we perceive we look better, we feel better. Imagine a child with a stomachache, you can see that they don’t feel well on their face. Now imagine what years of chronic pain would look like. We can undo that pain both physically and aesthetically.
Cassandra Warren, L. Ac of Edina Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine in Edina has nearly 10 years of clinical experience. While she specializes in treating chronic pain and women’s health, Cassandra Warren, L. Ac has also found great success in reducing and reversing the signs of aging through the holistic practice of cosmetic acupuncture.
Like the methodology behind all of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cassandra Warren, L. Ac believes that treating chronic pain and cosmetic acupuncture go together like yin and yang.

“The fine lines and wrinkles in our upper face are created by repetitive motion” says Cassandra Warren, L. Ac.
“Think of a piece of paper, smooth and flawless, much like our faces at birth. But with repeated use, folding and crinkling, or in our case, the repeated use of facial expressions, you start to see near permanent effects as you would folds and creases in a piece of paper.”
“My technique tightens and lifts the face much like a face lift. The applied mask and ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ are used to stimulate ATP production so that the body has the energy and building blocks it needs to rejuvenate and replenish the facial tissue.”
ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is an energy carrying molecule that naturally occurs in all living things. It powers cellular processes, acting as a channel delivering energy to places within the cell where energy-consuming activities are taking place. In this case, targeting the cells that create collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin to reduce and reverse the signs of aging.
When compared to traditional Botox products, the effects aren’t as instantaneous. However, Cassandra Warren, L. Ac assures that her technique provides longer lasting results with while turning back time slowly, gracefully and more naturally.
