Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Though Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger. The Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment 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 the individual’s needs. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the 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 with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; increased collagen production, muscle tone, and dermal contraction; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improving of hormonal balance to help acne; reduction of stress evident in the face – bringing out the innate Beauty and Radiance of an individual. Generally, it consists of 12 treatments. The effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the seventh session. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five to ten years. One of the fundamentals of Chinese medicine is that the health of the body, the mind and the spirit is reflected on the face. Internal health radiates as external beauty—it is absolutely the source of our beauty and the source of our youth. Skin problems and aging ultimately result from internal imbalances, so the best way to address these skin issues is to correct the internal imbalances. The entire purpose of acupuncture is to do just this–acupuncture regulates the flow of qi (energy) to bring the body, mind and spirit back to a state of balance and harmony.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture not only imparts a renewed youthfulness to the face, but it also promotes your overall health, vitality and sense of well-being. Health and beauty are inseparable in Traditional Chinese Medicine and facial rejuvenation acupuncture demonstrates this impressively.
