Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is an effective and natural anti-aging technique used to cosmetically rejuvenate the facial and neck skin using extremely fine needles, gua sha massage, and cupping therapy. This is an ancient beauty practice that was performed for Chinese royalty, and today has gained increasing popularity and demand as a safe, non-surgical, painless alternative to Botox and other cosmetic interventions. Facial rejuvenation treatments:
- promote local circulation of blood and lymph
- naturally stimulate collagen production
- improve muscle tone to lift sagging, drooping skin
- tighten pores and promote skin elasticity
- reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blotchiness, inflammation, facial puffiness, acne, light scarring, age spots
- result in overall more youthful, toned, glowing skin.
During the treatments, hair-fine needles are inserted on the face and head, as well as peripheral regions of the body to further move “qi” and blood and promote internal physiological balance. Clients report feeling very relaxed after treatments and often benefit from improvement of other health areas such as digestion, energy levels, overall body circulation, etc. Traditional Chinese medicine understands the interconnectedness between different organs and systems of the body, for a truly holistic and inside-out approach to visible beauty and vibrant well-being.
Facial rejuvenation treatments last 1.5 hours- including needling, gua sha massage, and cupping; and it is recommended to have 1-2 sessions per week. Clients often notice good results in a few sessions, but typically the desired outcome with more lasting results is achieved in a complete course of 12 sessions. Effectiveness will also depend on the individual’s health, nutrition/hydration, lifestyle, and how well they take care of themselves.
*Facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatments are contraindicated for pregnant women, anyone with acute migraines, bleeding or bruising issues, or acute herpetic outbreaks on the face.
