What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Though Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is more than just a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
The Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment is based on the principles of Oriental Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles 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 effect 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 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.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Notice the furrow wrinkle (between the eyebrows) is flattened and smoothed out tremendously after only one session.
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.
Micro current Facial Rejuvenation
Micro current 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 microcurrent 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 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!
