Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. As early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD) the Chinese understood that beauty comes from within our bodies. Many sources say Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation techniques were used on the Empress.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture* reported that “in 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The documented effects included: improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles, leveling of wrinkles, and overall rejuvenation–not confined to face.” *Zhang Qi and Zhu Lan-xiu (1996). Meridional Cosmetology: Report of 300 Cases with Discussion of Underlying Mechanism. International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, Vol 7, No 4.
Your acupuncturist will use the highest quality, pre-sterilized, one- time use (disposable) acupuncture needles gently inserted around the face, neck and scalp. Body points are also used to address underlying causes contributing to the aging process. While your skin is reacting to the subtle stimulation, the treatment is also adjusting the energy throughout your entire body. The treatment finishes with a gentle massage of the face, and facial exercises designed to further enhance your treatment.
Maintenance sessions are scheduled according to the individual’s needs after the initial series, and most patients enjoy a facial tune-up session once every 4 weeks. Since the skin (epidermis) completely renews itself every 30 days, a once a month session is recommended for maintenance & for optimal results. You may see changes as soon as the first treatment is completed, but each succeeding treatment builds on the last.
