Segment on Facial Acupuncture:
Acupuncture can provide a safe, effective, natural, and drug-free approach to help reduce the signs of aging. A facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatment can improve muscle tone of the face and neck, reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and even out skin tone. It also as addresses the underlying imbalances that contribute to the aging process in order to achieve "Beauty from Within".
According to Chinese Medicine, wrinkles begin internally from a constitutional imbalance and fundamental weakness of Qi (or flow of energy within our body) that usually comes with aging. Qi circulates throughout our body and provides nourishment, support, and energy to every part of our body. As we get older, there is insufficient Qi to flow upwards to "lift" the face. This leads to inadequate muscle tone, and over time, wrinkles and sagging skin. Other factors also contributing to the aging process include poor diet, digestive issues, poor circulation, or emotional and environmental stresses.
Acupuncture tightens pore, improves muscle tone and dermal contraction, while enhancing and increasing the elasticity of the skin. It also helps to brighten the face by improving circulation to the face. It can reduce signs of aging by strengthening and stimulating the circulation of Qi within the meridian pathways, especially those of the face. Through a succession of treatments, fine wrinkles begin to diminish and muscle tone of the face improves, and you will look and feel more energetic, calm, vibrant, and healthy as well.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a natural, drug-free, non-surgical and gradual approach to reduce fine wrinkles, improve skin tone, tighten pores, lighten dark circles, as well as tighten sagging skin. However, if you would like to achieve dramatic results within a short period of time, cosmetic surgery may be the better way to go.
The service typically takes 90 minutes with the initial appointment up to 2 hours. The service includes body and facial acupuncture, organic anti-aging mask & brightening cream applications, plus a light facial massage. Aromatherapy is complimentary if desired.
Depending on your state of health and constitution, your face may look brightened and have a sense of well being in as few as 1 to 2 treatments. Reduced fine wrinkles, improved muscle tone, lightened dark circles are usually visible in 4 to 6 treatments while sagging skin and jaw lines may take up to 10 treatments.
To achieve the desired improvement, the initial 4 to 10 treatments should be done twice a week or at a minimum on a weekly basis. The follow up phase of 4 to 6 treatments can be done every 2 to 3 weeks to "firm up" the results. Monthly "tune up" is recommended afterwards for maintenance purposes.
Herbal supplements, exercise and acupressure may be combined with facial rejuvenation acupuncture in order to maximize results.
