Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, is a treatment modality originated in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is intended to reduce the signs of the aging process by helping the body promote rejuvenation and revitalization from the inside out. In ancient China, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture was a treatment sought after by the Chinese royalty who wanted to preserve their health and young appearance. More recently celebrities worldwide boosted the demand for this natural approach to rejuvenation.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe non-surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of the skin by stimulating the production of collagen, increasing the micro-circulation in the face and toning up weakened muscles. That’s all done with the superficial insertion of very thin needles along acupuncture lines on the face and scalp and without the application of injectable fillers or toxins such as Botox. The insertion of fine needles on the dermis layer of the skin produces a micro- inflammatory response which increases local circulation. With repeated treatments, the inflammatory response stimulates the local production and build up of collagen which is the protein produced by our bodies responsible for the skin’s resilience and youthful firmness and texture.

Facial results:

  • Reduction of fine lines , some could completely vanish
  • “Filling” of deeper lines
  • Reduction of bags under the eyes
  • Softer and tighter skin
  • Brighter complexion
  • Reduced sagging
  • Reduction of acne scars
  • A more relaxed and refreshed expression

The effects of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are not limited to the face. Treatments are individualized according to how each person is aging. In addition to the cosmetic procedure on the face a full body acupuncture treatment is always provided to ensure the body can achieve internal balance and relaxation while individual needs are addressed. Thus, the treatment is an overall rejuvenation of your health as well as your appearance.

Course of Treatment

The course of treatment is 10 to12-one hour sessions twice a week for 5 to 6 weeks. It is important to commit to the twice a week schedule to allow collagen to build up and become more longstanding. Patients receive a facial massage with natural, organic hydrating oils and creams to complement each session. Generally, results start to become noticeable on the 5th session, although each individual responds differently depending on their age, lifestyle, levels of stress, etc. Once a month or seasonal maintenance treatments are recommended to prolong and maintain the results obtained after the 10-12 sessions.

Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture right for you?

Generally, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is good for anyone concerned about their physical appearance. Its benefits are best experienced by individuals on their 30-40s as a preventative measure that delays the natural decline of collagen production. However, individuals on their 50s and up who want to age gracefully can certainly benefit from the 10-12 session procedure plus the monthly maintenance. Another important aspect to consider when it comes to maintaining a healthy complexion is a skin care routine that includes good quality natural skin care products, daily use of sunscreen, seasonal facials and healthy lifestyle choices.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe treatment well tolerated by most, but it can be an intense procedure for some health problems including heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, chronic migraine headaches, bleeding conditions, seizures, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, uncontrolled anxiety, individuals on blood thinners or carrying a pacemaker, pregnant women, and any acute or debilitating condition.
