Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a time-tested natural approach for combating the signs of aging and promoting a healthy and radiant appearance. While no therapies, surgical, chemical, or natural can reduce every sign of aging, facial rejuvenation acupuncture is an ideal and effective option for those who would like to avoid risky and expensive surgeries or chemical procedures, as well as those who place a high value on preserving a natural appearance.
How does it work?
The treatment methods used in facial rejuvenation stimulate the flow of blood and energy through the face and the entire body, generating a radiant glow, helping the recipient to have healthy skin from the inside out. To address signs of aging, micro-needling is used to stimulate the production of collagen which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Through its ability to stimulate muscle and tissue fibers at a deep level, facial rejuvenation also can address larger structural concerns such as sagging skin and jowels eyelid ptosis, and facial scarring. Because every person is different, a personalized prognosis regarding your conditions will be discussed at your initial consultation. Each facial rejuvenation treatment ends with facial cupping and gua sha, which help to further encourage healthy collagen production, increase lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness, and sculpt and tone the face.
One of the most important and unique elements of facial rejuvenation acupuncture is that it recognizes and address the health and well-being of each individual, as well as treating aesthetic concerns. According to the principles of Chinese medicine, a beautiful outward appearance is a reflection of a healthy body and happy spirit. While facial treatment is the primary focus and goal of facial rejuvenation treatments, your other health concerns will be evaluated and discussed. The end result is that you will not only look better, you will feel better too.
Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture for me?
Because facial rejuvenation acupuncture is aimed at bringing the health of the body and face into greater balance, as well stimulating collagen growth and encouraging strengthening of the facial muscles to improve tone, it is very important to understand that facial rejuvenation can only be successful with a commitment to a series of treatments. The amount of treatments can vary greatly from person to person, but in general, please expect to commit to a minimum of 10 treatments, scheduled once per week. For those who undergo a full facial rejuvenation course of treatment, maintenance treatments are recommended once per month in order to maintain results. Just as you would not expect to go to the gym and work out only once in order to get into shape, facial rejuvenation works because of its consistent treatment and stimulation of the face.
At its root, Chinese medicine is preventative medicine, and for that reason exceptions can be made for those who do not have any visible signs of aging or specific facial concerns, and instead are looking for a way to prevent and minimize aging from the start. While each person is unique, this will be most relevant for those 35 and under. In these cases, preventative facial acupuncture treatments should be received between once every 2-3 months.
