Elizabeth spent the early part of her acupuncture career working for a plastic surgeon. It was there that she pioneered techniques for cutting healing time in half by using a variety of modalities including acupuncture, herbs and dietary counseling. This was highly unusual that an acupuncturist would be working in a surgeon’s doctor’s office. It was from there that Dr. Leslie Baumann M.D., world renowned author, skin care expert and the head of cosmetic dermatology of the University of Miami asked Elizabeth to write a chapter in her first book: Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice Principles for dermatologist, plastic surgeons and cosmetic scientist on alternative medicine and skin.
Elizabeth has been trained by many of the experts in the United States for facial rejuvenation. Combined with her extensive knowledge of mainstream western dermatology and plastic surgery she is able to integrate these systems effectively. She has written articles for Dr. Weil.com, and interviewed by Elle magazine and featured in the Beauty Prescription by Dr. Eva Ritvo M.D.
