Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture) offers a natural alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery, chemical (glycolic) peels and Botox fillers.
This treatment involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into specific points on the body and face. Stimulation of the points on the face increases the local blood flow and increases the collagen, which may erase fine lines and decrease prominent lines. The result is firmer, healthier skin. The aim of the series is not only to resolve problems at the surface, but also to address the internal imbalance that is causing the problem in the first place. This whole body approach to rejuvenation provides lasting results and many people report that they not only start looking better, but also feeling better.
A Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture series consists of 10-15 weekly or bi-weekly treatments. During the first few sessions, one will begin to see a brightening of the complexion. By about the 6th or 7th session an improvement in facial tone and diminishing of lines becomes more apparent. The results are not as dramatic as a surgical facelift. Rather, the changes are gradual over the course of several weeks. By the end of a series the face is lifted and bright, wrinkles are diminished and facial tone and colour are markedly improved. Each individual will respond differently to the treatment depending on their age, diet, skin care regime and lifestyle. Monthly maintenance sessions are recommended to keep the results lasting for years.
