In Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory beauty comes from within. When you start to age in a way that looks and feels unhealthy then it is possible the flow of Qi is not balanced within your body. When balance is restored, you will feel and look more radiant. On a physiological level, acupuncture has been shown to increase circulation of blood and life energy throughout the body. Increased blood flow can help to maintain healthy skin and muscle tone by sending nourishment, moisture, and “lifting” energy to the skin and muscles of the face. By increasing lymph flow using facial massage and combined with acupuncture this process can help strengthen the immune system as our skin is an essential part of our immune system.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as Acupuncture Facelift and in much more than just a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalizing process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
Hair-thin needles are inserted into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs along channels or meridians of energy called Qi. Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to the individual’s needs. Thousands of years ago, the Chinese discovered that many meridians either begin or end on the face while some have internal branches that go to the face. Thus, practitioners of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture know how to specifically treat the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face, with results apparent after just a few treatments. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. Bags under the eyes can be reduced, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized. Other likely results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; increased collagen and elastin production, muscle tone, and dermal contraction; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improving of hormonal balance to help acne; reduction of stress evident in the face – bringing out the innate Beauty and Radiance of an individual.
Course of Treatment
The recommended course of treatment (for the longest lasting and most dramatic effect) consists of 10 to 12 bi-weekly or tri-weekly treatments. You can expect an initial visit and following treatments to each last about 1 hour. The effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the seventh session. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to treatment.
Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five to ten years. It is often recommended to supplement the Facial Rejuvenation program with Facial Self-Massage and/or Acupressure, and a healthy diet.
Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation
Microcurrent is a pleasant and refreshing way to help the body naturally fight and decrease the effects of aging on the face. This treatment uses a micro current unit to stimulate the muscles of the face to help relax tight muscles, firm muscles that have lost their tone, improve skin tone and circulation, and reduce or eliminate puffiness and fine lines. There is a slight risk of bruising and no recovery time after the treatment. A great alternative to other medical youth enhancing treatments like Botox, Collagen or Restalyne injections!
Clients are also encouraged to come in for a Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation treatment as a preparation for any big event or occasion! With no bruising or recovery time it makes a great addition to any beauty regimen!
