We all want to look our best and maintain an youthful and healthy glow. Even though aging is a natural process, stress, negative emotions, inappropriate diet, toxins, sun damage, and gravity age our skin even faster. Several things happen as we age. Skin loses its youth producing fat, collagen and elastin glands that once rejuvenated skin cells. Aging occurs when the circulation of blood and lymph to the skin decreases, depriving the skin and underlying muscles of essential nourishment. As a result the skin and muscles looses moister, firmness, elasticity, and tone.

What if there was a safe, non surgical option that could take 5-15 years off of your face? Natural holistic methods for anti-aging are among the most effective and efficient, yet underutilized cosmetic options. Unlike Botox, fillers, and surgery Facial Acupuncture is a holistic, natural, gentle way to rejuvenate your skin and bring forward your youthful glow. It was once employed by ancient Chinese royalty to prolong youthfulness.

Facial Acupuncture will enhance your health and radiance by restoring the circulation of blood and lymph to the skin, face, and muscle, leaving you looking and feeling refreshed. Your skin will improve in texture, softness, clarity, and firmness.

Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points in the face, neck, and also the body to stimulate body’s natural energies called Qi. Positive micro-trauma produced by acupuncture needle stimulates the fibroblasts, and this action increase the production of collagen.

Some of the facial benefits include:

  • Reduction of under eyes bags and sagging tendencies
  • Elimination of the lines and diminishing of large wrinkles
  • Improvement of collagen production and muscle tone
  • Tightening of pores and brightening of eyes
  • Fleshing out of sunken areas
  • Reduction of stress and balancing of total health and well-being

For the best result it is recommended a series of 10-12 treatments. At the initial treatment the practitioner will go through your medical history and skin care regime with you, and design a treatment plan individual to you. Facial cleansing, skin nourishment, and qua sha- gentle Jade stone facial massage are all forms of integral part of the treatment. It may be supported by a wide variety of other techniques including cupping, facial Jade rolling, rejuvenating facial masks. Advice on diet, skincare, and lifestyle are often recommended as a part of complete health and beauty program. Usually after a few treatments a patient notices some changes. Around 7th or 8th treatment, the collagen starts to kick in and wrinkles start to diminish. After this, a maintenance of one treatment a month is recommended depending on the age of the patient.
