Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation
A NON-SURGICAL METHOD OF REDUCING THE SIGNS OF THE AGING PROCESS!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE?
- Promotes blood and lymph circulation; increased circulation dilates peripheral blood vessels for better distribution of oxygen and nutrients as well as cellular regeneration.
- Re-hydrates the skin’s external layers through stimulation of the secretion of the sweat and sebaceous glands which encourages the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
- Helps exfoliation, aids the proliferation of new skin cells, increases nutrition to the skin’s surface, improves the quality of the skin and promotes a healthy glow.
- Increases oxygen consumption of the skin‘s external layer speeding up the release of carbon dioxide and nitrogen at the cellular level, helping to keep skin deeply clean; contributes to reducing the accumulation of excess grease on the skin’s surface.
HOW DOES COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Special points are selected on the face, scalp and along the hairline to lift and firm. The insertion of fine intra-dermal needles within wrinkles and lines simulates collagen and elastin production. Facial acupuncture treatments increase the flow of Qi and blood circulation to the face while simultaneously correcting health imbalances in the body.
WHAT IS A COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE SESSION LIKE?
Cleansing of face will be done upon your request. Fine needle insertion on selected points helps to anchor your energy about 20-40 minutes. After the facial acupuncture, LED Light therapy promotes calming effect and provides a dewy glow. Arnica, natural herb ointment, can be applied to prevent bruising. Facial massage may be applied upon request to firm skin or reduce lines and wrinkles.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
A complete course of treatment is 24 sessions, with each session lasting about 30 to 50 minutes. The duration of session may vary depending on your condition of muscle tone, volume and skin elasticity. Most patients observe results around 12 sessions. Faster results are obtained by receiving 2 sessions per week over 6 weeks. Once monthly follow-up visits are suggested to maintain results. Some patients opt for a second course of facial acupuncture to gain additional results.
Radio Frequency – Skin Tightening
The Radio Frequency Facial uses radio waves to penetrate the outer skin layers and deliver heat energy to the muscles and tissues beneath. This heat stimulates collagen production and cellturnover which causes tissue contraction. This treatment tightens and brighten your skin, as well as reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
