Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a non-surgical and natural approach to reduce the signs of aging and improve overall skin health. This technique involves the insertion of tiny needles into specific areas of the face and body to stimulate circulation, promote collagen production, and balance the body’s energy (Qi).

During the treatment, the acupuncturist will first assess the patient’s skin condition and overall health. Then, they will insert fine, sterile needles into specific points on the face, scalp, ears, and body. The needles are left in place for around 20-30 minutes while the patient relaxes.

The acupuncture needles stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. Improved circulation helps to nourish the skin and increase its radiance. The needles also work to relax facial muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for people of all skin types and ages. It is a holistic approach that not only improves the appearance of the skin but also addresses underlying imbalances in the body that can contribute to the aging process.

However, it’s important to note that results may vary for each individual, and the treatment may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions or skin conditions. It’s always best to consult with a licensed acupuncturist to determine if Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is right for you.

What Can I Expect From My Treatments? How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

Your first session will involve an overall Traditional Chinese Medicine health assessment to determine any areas of imbalance. Once the treatment begins many needles will be inserted into the face and body, however, these needles are extremely fine and inserted in such a gentle manner that clients find it incredibly relaxing, often falling asleep during the treatment. This protocol requires 10-15 sessions and treatments should be twice a week for the first three weeks, then weekly treatments for the following sessions. It is important to complete all sessions to achieve the full effect and long-lasting results. While many people notice some results after their first treatment, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has a cumulative effect with the best improvement usually noticed around the seventh treatment. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks to maintain best results, with the entire protocol being repeated every 3-5 years.

Are There Any Side-Effects?

As with any acupuncture treatment performed by a qualified and registered practitioner, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is extremely safe.

How many Acupuncture treatments will I need?

The number of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments needed varies for each individual, as it depends on their specific skin condition and desired outcomes. Some clients may see significant improvements with fewer sessions, while others may require several treatments to achieve their desired results. Your Acupuncturist is the best person to assess your unique needs and offer guidelines on the appropriate treatment frequency.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments are cumulative in their effects, meaning that each session builds upon the last. For optimal results, it is common for weekly visits to be suggested, especially in the initial phase of treatment. This frequency helps to kickstart the rejuvenation process and lays the foundation for subsequent improvements.

As the desired outcomes start to manifest, and your skin’s condition improves, your Acupuncturist may recommend extending the duration between visits. This adjustment allows the body to naturally respond to the treatment and maintain the benefits achieved during the sessions.

Remember, patience and consistency are key in achieving the best results with Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. By following your Acupuncturist’s personalized treatment plan and adhering to their guidelines, you can enhance the potential for successful and long-lasting rejuvenation of your skin.
