From blepharoplasty and buccal fat removal to the resurgence of breast implants, plastic
surgery trends shift and evolve by the week. As we approach Skincare Awareness Month, we must break down the pros, cons, myths, and trends in plastic surgery and other invasive and noninvasive aesthetic procedures. In celebration of all things skin, we’d like to introduce you to Cosmetic Acupuncture. The innovative Chinese practice is a natural alternative to several areas of aesthetics, including Botox and facelifts. The non-invasive technique is rising, with currently 26 million views on TikTok. Whether you’re scared to go under the knife or looking for a natural alternative to aesthetic treatments, Cosmetic Acupuncture is a rising practice on your radar. Stemming from ancient Chinese medicine, this newly westernized technique gives patients the opportunity to achieve radiant, youthful, tightened, and lifted skin without downtime.
With locations in NYC and Middletown, NY, SY Aesthetics offers an innovative blend of plastic
surgeries, non-surgical cosmetic services, nutritional guidance, psychological support, natural
beauty procedures, and lifestyle medicine. The company’s mission is to improve patients’ health
from the inside out, with a holistic emphasis on beauty from within and the rest to follow.
The power pair behind the launch consists of board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Yager
(Medical Director), and board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Jingduan Yang (CEO). Cosmetic Acupuncturist Dr. Jingduan Yang is a holistic practitioner who brought his decades of Chinese medicine expertise to New York, where he serves as CEO of the newly launched SY
Aesthetics—in NYC and Middletown. It’s here that he taught his practitioners ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine, along with modern techniques to help patients achieve radiant, youthful skin and overall well-being. His program spans 12 weeks, utilizing acupuncture to relax facial muscles and nurture collagen production. This smoothes out wrinkles and provides a youthful appearance. SY Aesthetics’ Cosmetic Acupuncture program can also facilitate weight loss by activating specific points on the body. Dr. Jeffrey Yager is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial, body, and breast procedures, who has served New York for more than 25 years. The Johns Hopkins and Columbia University alum recently helped launch two full-service SY Aesthetics facilities in NYC and Middletown New York, where he serves as Medical Director.
