Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation and Acupuncture Facelift, treats the underlying causes of aging as well as its manifestation in our faces. It is non-surgical and is more than just a cosmetic procedure - it improves your total health.

As early as the Sung Dynasty (960 AD), acupuncture and herbs have been employed to rejuvenate the faces of emperors and empresses. It is thought, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, that beauty is restored when circulation increases: "where the qi goes, blood flows".

In fact, a 1996 report from the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture stated that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects after one course of treatment, including the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a rosier complexion and overall improvement in patient health.

Truly, acupuncture can improve facial muscle and skin tone. It can increase collagen production and its circulation throughout the skin. Patients experience reduction of puffiness, sagginess, wrinkles and dry skin. Their pores tighten - and because acupuncture balances the hormones, acne is significantly reduced. Circulation increases and the skin regains its healthy glow. Acupuncture relaxes the body so you appear five to fifteen years younger, calmer and radiant.

As we treat the underlying causes of aging with Chinese Herbs and vitamins, your vitality and sense of well-being will return.

Approach and Course of Treatment

Because our bodies' needs are so individual, treatment is specifically designed to each persons' facial and bodies' needs. For instance, puffiness is treated differently than deep lines.

Twelve treatments comprise a course of treatment. Effects appear most significant halfway through the course. Each person's health and lifestyle before beginning acupuncture determines their rate of response. Adherence to the herbal supplements, dietary and skin care recommendations will lengthen the treatment permanence and will increase the rate of improvement. Quarterly maintenance treatments are recommended.

Replacement for Surgery?

Acupuncture is not a replacement for surgical facelift. However, there are no side effects, no extended recovery time, no trauma to the face and no danger of disfigurement. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is less costly than plastic surgery and is quite safe. It's an excellent alternative. It gives life, health and radiance back to the face - and to the body.

{ Please note: Facial Acupuncture should not be used with patients who have diabetes, high blood pressure, severe migraine headaches or during a cold or flu. This procedure should be avoided during pregnancy, in individuals who have a pacemaker or who suffer from bleeding or bruising disorders. }
