We offer Facial Rejuvenation, the practice of focusing the treatments on improving skin quality. While it is common for skin tone and color to improve during the course of medical acupuncture treatments, facial rejuvenation focuses on removing wrinkles and blemishes, enhancing skin tone and looking younger. It has recently become more popular in the United States due its effectiveness without the possible side effects of more traumatic rejuvenation techniques.
Today, it is an effective non-surgical yet painless way to lessen the appearance of fine lines as well as deeper wrinkles. According to Chinese medicine, it improves circulation and stimulates the body’s natural anti-aging powers.
The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported in a recent study of 300 people, 270 perceived a marked decrease of facial wrinkles after just one treatment. Their skin felt firmer to the touch and elasticity was improved.
How does it work?
Hair-thin needles are gently inserted into specific points on the face to facilitate the movement of blood and stimulate the production of collagen. This in turn nourishes, re-hydrates, tones and reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles. Additionally, specialized frequency-specific electrically stimulated needles improve skin elasticity as well as the tone of the facial muscles. Your skin will also have a more youthful glow.
Natural Chinese herbal creams are applied in a soothing herbal facial mask. In advanced facial acupuncture, synergistic points are used on the arms, legs and body to further strengthen the body’s energy, thereby enhancing beauty from the inside out. With this complete holistic treatment, we can achieve a balance between improving exterior facial beauty and strengthening the internal energies that influence beauty.
