What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Facial rejuvenation Acupuncture is a complete Chinese medicine Acupuncture Treatment. Fine hair-like needles are placed are a variety of points in the ears, on the face and neck, legs, feet, hands, arms and trunk of the body.
Because every person has a unique constitutional make up, every treatment is a personalized recipe of needle points. This individualized recipe is based on the proper Chinese Medicine diagnosis in order to obtain the desired results.
What are the results?
The face then lifts itself through the muscles’ rejuvenation and tightening action. The body’s energy, blood and circulation are stimulated, which improves facial color, reduces or eliminates discoloration, enhances collagen production, and increases moisture in your skin.
After the first treatment, one usually observes an increased glow to the complexion. A person’s face appears more ‘open’ with an increase of clarity to the eyes. Any stress or anxiety is reduced or eliminated and quite often the person is feeling and looking rested. Wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned. More dramatic noticeable results tend to occur by the seventh treatment.
By the end of the series of treatments, fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced. Sagging around the neck and chin, and bags under the eyes are firmed. Dark circles, puffiness, and age spots are reduced. Eyes become brighter, eyelids are lifted, jowls are firmed, and pores are tightened. Inner beauty, vitality, and serenity manifest in the appearance while many pre-existing health conditions are cleared up because Acupuncture works by treating the whole body and addressing the underlying causes of aging and disease.
What is a course of Treatment?
A series of weekly treatments are necessary along with the person’s involvement in the process. After an initial two hour session additional self care recommendations may be made based on lifestyle, eating, and sleep habits. Pertinent facial exercises will be taught, and possible herbal supplementation may be offered. Also at that time the recommended number of follow up visits can be determined.
The following durations of treatment are customarily recommended:
* Usually 10 – 15 treatments
* 20 treatments for smokers or people whose skin tends to sag
The most dramatic results can last from eighteen months to three years. To ensure persistence of the results, ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended along with facial exercises and massage.
