Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also referred to as cosmetic acupuncture, is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging and improving physical and mental health. Acupuncture techniques, as well as a variety of Chinese medical treatments and Chinese herbal supplements, are used to erase years off of your face. Based on the differentiated diagnoses of Oriental Medicine, the whole body looks and feels younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process. Cosmetic acupuncture is specifically focused on improving the skin health and giving skin an overall glow, but it does incorporate traditional acupuncture that works to de-stress and calm the body. The appearance of the skin is connected to the state of your health, so it is important to balance the mind, body and spirit.
A typical course of treatment consists of 10-14 consecutive weekly treatments to see desired results. While some results are often noticeable after just a few sessions, a full course of treatment allows deeper, more lasting results to occur. After completing a course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results, usually occur monthly for 2 to 3 months and then seasonally for as long as you wish to maintain results depending on the reaction of the client. The effects of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture are cumulative and last up to 3-5 years after a course of 10 treatments, with maintenance. Chinese herbs are an important part of the Facial Rejuvenation protocol. Herbal formulas are created specifically for you and herbs are selected based on your constitutional diagnosis.
