FACIAL REJUVENATION / COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE
Facial Rejuvenation / Cosmetic Acupuncture
A non surgical treatment designed to correct the signs of aging with the insertion of acupuncture needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, legs and feet. Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of qi in the body according to the individual clients needs.
How does it work?
The Chinese discovered ways to change the energy flow within the body to spark the healing process for rejuvenation of the face. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is often referred to as an Acupuncture facelift, but it is far more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a revitalization and rejuvenation process that helps the whole body look and feel younger.
What are the effects?
The treatment series may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face, with results noticeable after just a few treatments. Acupuncture improves local circulation of blood and lymph to the body and face by bringing nutrients to the skin, moisturizing and aiding in the removal of metabolic toxins. It has been shown to increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal, helping to firm the skin and fill in the wrinkles. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. It helps dermal contraction in the face and neck while also improving muscle tone, helping to firm jowls and minimize double chins. Bags and sagging skin around the eyes, face and neck can be significantly reduced and toned up over the rejuvenation treatment series, by improving fluid metabolism. Restoration of health facial color and tighten of the pores are additional benefits of the facial acupuncture and a full body treatment to treat one’s underlying health issues. Other likely results include: brightening of the eyes; improving hormonal balance to help with acne; reduction of stress evident in the face.
Acupuncture is a natural alternative to Botox and cosmetic surgery, and can also be administered as post-operative care for patients who have already had cosmetic work done to the face. There is no risk of disfigurement with acupuncture treatments and no chemicals for the body to deal with.

What is the course of treatment?
Generally it consists of 12- 15 treatments given once or twice a week over a 6-8 week time period. The number of treatments required is totally dependent on the individual’s skin, age, health, diet, condition and lifestyle prior to the treatment. The effects become most noticeable and lasting around the seventh to ninth treatment, thought many people notice improvements much sooner, each person will respond differently.
Following the initial treatment series, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five or more years. It is recommended to supplement the program with facial self massage, facial Acutonics® treatments, herbal and nutritional supplements and a healthy diet.
Does it really make a difference?
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture; reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming more delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a rosier complexion, and overall rejuvenation-not confined to the face.
Why choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over a surgical face-lift?
Facial Acupuncture cost much less than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, and free of side effects of risk of disfigurement. There is no trauma from the treatment, unlike surgery that may require an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration. This is not a replacement for surgery because we cannot reshape the chin or nose, but more subtle the rejuvenation series takes years off one’s face naturally and safely with also improving your overall health.
