Facial Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a natural method of revitalizing the skin and underlying tissues of the face. Like conventional cosmetic treatments such as surgery and Botox injections, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is able to make a person look younger and healthier. While not matching the dramatic results of surgery, it is an excellent alternative to expensive, invasive and potentially risky medical procedures.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is:
● safe, risk-free, without side effects and requires no period of recuperation
● gradual in its effect thereby avoiding sudden dramatic changes in appearance
● inexpensive when compared to conventional cosmetic treatments
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Also known as ‘cosmetic’ or ‘face-lift’ acupuncture, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a natural, non-medical way to reverse visible signs of aging in the face. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture taps into the body’s natural ability to regenerate cells and tissues. It does this by improving blood circulation to the face, increasing collagen and elastin production and improving lymph drainage.
The results of a treatment course of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture include:
● eliminating fine lines and filling in deeper wrinkles
● nourishing and regenerating the skin to give it new tone and elasticity
● lifting sagging tissue and reducing puffiness
● clearing blemishes and reducing age spots
● relaxing muscles in the face that cause lines
● giving the face a more youthful and vibrant glow
The effects of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture will begin to appear after just a few weeks of treatments.
The benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are not limited to the face. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture promotes overall health and supports a patient’s sense of well-being. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, the body’s acupuncture channels are all connected to points on the face. Placing needles on these points will have the effect of opening the channels and promoting circulation of blood and subtle energy throughout the body.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS LIKE?
A typical session of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture will last approximately 60 minutes. Ultra-fine needles are placed wherever needed on the face: the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, nose, mouth, chin and neck. The needles are left in place for about 40 minutes. The treatments are very relaxing and it is common for patients to fall asleep during the session.
Needles on the arms and legs are used during each treatment to enhance the effects of the needles on the face. Points on the arms and legs can also address constitutional and underlying health problems that give rise to visible signs of aging. These problems can include digestive and hormonal imbalances, headaches, depressed immune functioning, sinus problems and poor sleep.
Following a treatment patients often report having a sensation of subtle energy circulating in the face and the impression that a positive change is taking place there.
HOW OFTEN DOES A PATIENT COME FOR TREATMENTS?
A treatment course of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture consists of 12 sessions. For the fastest results a patient should come twice a week for six weeks. Single weekly sessions are also effective but changes to the face will be more gradual. Results should begin to appear about halfway through the treatment course and should last between 12-18 months. To prolong the effects of a full treatment course the patient should return for a maintenance session once a month.
