Do you have a special day that you are preparing for? Do you just want to look your best? Facial rejuvenation acupuncture may be right for you!
This unique specialization in acupuncture may be relevant for any individual with fine lines, deep wrinkles, bags under the eyes, sagging in the face or eyelids, double chin, large pores, irregular skin tones. Facial rejuvenation treatments may erase years from the face, with results apparent after just a few treatments. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. Bags under the eyes may be reduced, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized. Also with an increased local circulation of blood to the face, firmer skin and muscle tone, tightening of enlarged pores, brightening of the eyes, improved hormonal balance to help acne, will mostly likely occur.
Once a patient has their initial consult, there are specific acupuncture points that are stimulated depending on the area of the face that needs attention. The treatment goal is to focus on the face while simultaneously treating possible underlying factors that may contribute to the aging process. In summary, along with facial points, the treatment also focuses on the “inner beauty”. The very small and thin needles, are inserted in the face, ears, feet, legs, neck, hands, and trunk. Points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to the individual’s needs.
A course of treatment usually consists of 12 sessions. The effects may become most noticeable and lasting on or around the seventh session. Each patient responds differently, depending on their condition as well as lifestyle prior to and during the treatment sessions. Following the initial course of 12 treatments, maintenance sessions may prolong the results. In addition to facial rejuvenation acupuncture, other factors such as facial self massage, acupressure, exercises for the face, and a healthy diet may also enhance the longevity of the treatments.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is contraindicated for patients with migraines headaches, some cardiovascular disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, or for individuals who have a problem with bleeding or bruising. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture should not be administered during other types of cosmetic procedures, like Botox, during pregnancy, a cold or flu, acute allergy, or if experiencing an acute herpes outbreak.
