Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to treat the visible signs of facial aging.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
It 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 (pronounced chee). Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to each person’s individual needs.
Thousands of years ago the Chinese discovered that many meridians either begin or end on the face, while others have internal branches that go to the face. It is this gift from nature that makes Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture so effective in treating the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has the potential to erase anywhere from five to fifteen years from your appearance.
How many treatments do I need?
A series of approximately 12 treatments are recommended in order to attain the full benefits, which include firmer facial muscles, tighter pores, reduction of fine lines, brighter eyes and glowing skin.
After just one treatment, you might notice more color in the face and a healthier glow. A 1996 report in The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that 98% of 300 cases had marked effects with just one course of treatment.
Depending on each individual, it generally takes seven to twelve treatments to see long-lasting results. Following the initial course of approximately 12 treatments, maintenance sessions can prolong the results.
Naturopathic treatment protocols include a multidisciplinary approach to medicine. NDs recognize that health is much more than the absence of disease, hence by working with other integrated health care professionals, including medical doctors, dentists, osteopathic doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and midwives the maximum therapeutic benefit for the patient is achieved.
Improves muscle tone and elasticity, especially in the face and neck.
Bags and sagging around the eyes, face and neck can be significantly reduced and toned.
Firms the skin tone and fills out wrinkles and fine lines by increasing collagen production and distribution.
Helps to eliminate puffiness by improving metabolism and boosting the elimination of excess fluids, along with tightening pores.
Improves hormonal balance making it very helpful in treating hormonally-induced dry skin or acne.
Moisturizes the skin by increasing local circulation of blood and lymph to the face.
Improves facial color by increasing peripheral circulation, and slows the aging process from within by boosting the circulation of energy throughout the entire body.
Can anyone get Facial Acupuncture?
While acupuncture can help with most health conditions, the emphasis is on the face with facial acupuncture, which brings more “yang” energy to the head, meaning this treatment is not recommended for people with regular migraines, diabetes mellitus or high blood pressure. However, a registered acupuncturist can address these issues with other acupuncture points on the body.
The treatment is also not recommended for individuals who have had plastic surgery, or who have had Botox or other anti-aging facial injections for which long-term effects are still unknown.
Facial acupuncture is not administered during flues and colds, acute herpes outbreaks, acute allergic reactions, or during pregnancy.
Finally, facial acupuncture may not be recommended for individuals with excessive bleeding or bruising issues.
What will I notice?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from your 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, tightening of the pores, brightening of the eyes, the softening or disappearance of age spots and blemishes, more color in the face and a more relaxed appearance.
