Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a non-surgical technique based on the medical system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) aimed at nourishing and balancing the body to reduce the signs of aging. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can be used on fine lines and wrinkles, bags under the eyes, droopy eyelids, acne, scars, and loose sagging skin to promote a healthier appearance.
Although Facial Rejuvenation is sometimes referred to as an “acupuncture facelift,” it is much more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
How does it work?
Being based in the medical system of TCM, acupuncture is used to stimulate the flow of Qi to benefit the body in general, but with a focus on the face. Acupuncture needles are inserted in the body to address the underlying factors that are contributing to the aging process, in addition to a number of smaller needles inserted into the face, ears and neck to specifically benefit the face. By combining the body and the face points, the Qi is stimulated in a way that addresses the underlying factors that may be accelerating the aging process, in addition to using specific points which bring the flow of Qi to the face to reduce the visible signs of aging.
What are the effects?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as much as five to fifteen years from the face over a series of treatments, with some people noticing results after just a few treatments. These treatments improve circulation of the face and body, bringing nutrients to the skin and removing toxins. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production and aid is collagen dispersal, thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. Improved muscle tone and dermal contraction helps firm jowls and minimize double chins, while improved fluid metabolism reduces bags under the eyes and lifts droopy eyelids.
How many visits will I need?
In order to attain desired effects, a series of 10 to 15 Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments are required. After completing a course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results. Maintenance sessions usually occur monthly for 2 to 3 months and then seasonally for as long as you wish to maintain results. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and diet and lifestyle factors prior to, and after, treatment.
