FACIAL REJUVENATION

What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Also known as Facelift Acupuncture, these treatments help recapture youthful skin and overall great health! By treating underlying imbalances–as well as the actual signs of aging–acupuncture heals inside & out.

Treatments increase the flow of energy to the face so that collagen production, blood and lymph circulation are also enhanced.

Changes to severe sagging or loose jowls and neck will be less dramatic than surgery, but consider the benefits:

  • Far less costly
  • Safe and virtually painless
  • No risks of disfigurement
  • No trauma, swelling, discoloration
  • Addresses general health in addition to cosmetic goals for overall relaxtion and well-being
  • Maintains effects of prior surgeries

A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, “90% had marked effects with one course of treatment”.

These effects can include:

  • Diminished fine lines and deeper grooves/furrows of the face and throat (laugh lines, Crow’s feet, signs of stress)
  • Reduced facial puffiness, swelling
  • Firmer jowls and double chins
  • Brighter eyes, reduced dark circles
  • Minimized under-eye bags
  • Tightened pores
  • Smoother skin tone
  • Cleared acne
  • Increased moisture to skin
