Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, sometimes referred to as “acupuncture facelift,” is a wonderful timeless beauty technique used by the Chinese since the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD). In Chinese, it is called “Me Rong Zhen”. Cosmetic acupuncture was performed on the Empress and Emperor’s concubines. Today, it is an effective non-surgical yet painless way to lessen the appearance of fine lines as well as deeper wrinkles. According to Chinese medicine, it improves circulation and stimulates the body’s natural anti-aging powers.
How does it work?
Sterile, hair-thin, single use needles are gently inserted into specific points on the face to facilitate the movement of blood and stimulate the production of collagen. This nourishes, re-hydrates, tones and reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles. Your skin will also have a more youthful glow.
Natural Chinese herbal creams are applied for a soothing herbal facial, by our Aveda trained esthetician Nancy Weirick, after the acupuncture treatment. In advanced facial acupuncture, synergistic points are used on the arms, legs and body to further strengthen the body’s energy, thereby enhancing beauty from the inside out. With this complete whole body treatment, we can achieve a balance between improving exterior facial beauty and strengthening the internal energy that influences beauty.
Treatments improve muscle tone and dermal contraction, increase collagen production, tightens pores, and increases local circulation of blood and lymph around the face. It can be used to reduce a double chin and sagging jowls, help to decrease inflammation, puffy or droopy eyelids.
How many sessions before noticing improvement?
A complete course of treatment is 10 to 12 sessions, 1 to 3 sessions a week. The measure of improvement depends on the individual. Factors such as diet, exercise and lifestyle also contribute to the effectiveness of the treatments. Noticeable results are usually achieved after 6 to 8 sessions. A session takes about 60 minutes. We will also recommend herbal supplements as well as diet and lifestyle changes in order to solidify the effectiveness of the treatments.
