The ancient Chinese medicine system of acupuncture is widely regarded for a range of health benefits, including improved digestion, and pain and headache relief. Yet, it does more than restore bodily balance to reduce or eliminate pain; for instance, it is increasingly used in our modern world as an anti-aging treatment. Cosmetic or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture provides a non-invasive, virtually painless alternative to surgery or Botox® and other dermal fillers, with none of the side effects.
Common Inquiries About Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
What Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
The treatment stimulates specific points on the face to improve blood and lymphatic flow, as well as collagen production. Increased blood circulation and lymph production promote healthy cell turnover, providing the skin with more nutrients and moisture. Moreover, it also tones and tightens the facial muscles, as the extra collagen keeps the skin cells plump and supple.
What Are the Benefits?
Patients typically notice fewer wrinkles and dark under-eye circles, as well as tighter pores, brighter eyes and better complexion. It helps lift droopy eyelids and sagging jowls, balances the hormones to reduce acne and dry skin issues, and is even believed to slow the aging process from the inside out. The result is a younger, more radiant appearance.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Results vary by individual; however, most people notice benefits from an initial series of 8 to15 treatments once or twice a week to reveal healthier, more youthful skin. Maintenance treatments should then be scheduled to continue the results and keep your face looking fresh and supple.
What Do I Need to Do Before Treatment?
Expect your first treatment to last about 90 minutes; follow-up sessions usually run around 60 to 75 minutes, depending on your acupuncturist. Wash your face before each session and wear loose, comfortable clothing. It is advised that you do not drink coffee or alcohol before the visit because the stimulant and depressant properties of each can interfere with balance restoration.
