NATURAL FACIAL REJUVENATION

As we age, chronic emotional, mental, and physical stressors start to take their toll on the body's largest organ- the skin.  

Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a non-surgical program that requires no recovery time, costs less than surgical procedures and chemical injections, and draws upon ancient Chinese wisdom to help the whole body look and feel younger. ​Treatments include lymphatic massage, gentle facial cupping and acupuncture, and a constitutional acupuncture treatment.

Benefits are often seen after only a few treatments:

  • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improved muscle tone of the face and neck

  • Lifted eyelids

  • Reduced under-eye bags and puffiness

  • Even skin tone & tightened pores

  • Reduce stress evident on the face

  • Brighter eyes

  • Benefits TMJ and neck muscles

  • Restore balance to excessively dry or oily skin

  • Reduced scar tissue and adhesions

  • Contributes to overall health and well-being

How Does Facial Rejuvenation Work?  

Acupuncture needles are gently inserted into the face, scalp, and neck, to stimulate the production of collagen and rebalance facial muscles. The needles help to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, reduce visible tension, and bring fresh blood and nutrients to the face to fill out fine lines and improve overall facial color and appearance. This treatment also addresses underlying imbalances, so that you leave feeling good on the inside too. The needles are left in for 20 minutes while you relax on a massage table. Treatments may also include other traditional Chinese medicine modalities, like moxibustion, lymphatic massage, acupressure, and/or medical qi gong. Herbal supplements, dietary and lifestyle advice may be recommended to support and enhance your treatment.

 

How Many Treatments Will You Need?

Depending on your age and the current state of your skin, one treatment course is generally 10-12 visits spread out over two to three months. After the initial session, we will evaluate your response and determine the number and frequency of follow-up visits that will be required. An entire course can last you a couple of years with occasional maintenance.
