Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture: Natural Alternative for Skin Care and Health

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been practiced in China for many centuries. Today, it is used as a non-invasive and natural alternative for facial skin care and health. I have been using my own approach to facial rejuvenation on my skin for over 20 years, using acupressure, acupuncture, and therapeutic facial massage. Oriental Medicine theories emphasize the connections between our organs, parts of the body, and our mind and emotions. Our skin is the body’s largest organ and is quite receptive to Oriental Medicine techniques. The look of our skin is dependent on the health of our internal organs and having enough qi and blood to nourish it adequately. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture uses body points and facial points to bring qi and blood to local areas which rejuvenates the skin in a natural, healthy and holistic way. Facial rejuvenation is as much about balancing our internal health as it is about improving the complexion of the skin.

What can Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture help with? 

·       Increases collagen production and circulation in the skin

·       Nourishes skin to make it glow

·       Promotes general health in the body and the skin

What does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture consist of?

A course of treatment typically lasts 10 sessions over a 5 week period. The first appointment includes a thorough consultation and a skin analysis.  A Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture session takes about 90 minutes for the initial appointment (follow-on sessions will take 75 minutes).

1.     Integrative Acupuncture Treatment.

The finest of needles are gently inserted into the areas of focus on the face to increase local circulation of blood and to encourage the natural regeneration process of your skin. Facial acupuncture stimulates the production of collagen, which improves skin elasticity and helps to smooth out the appearance of facial wrinkles. It can also be beneficial for decreasing inflammation, tightening the pores, helping with puffy eyes, and providing overall nourishment to the skin.

Therapeutic facial gua sha is also performed with nourishing and rejuvenating organic essential oils to enhance the overall effects of the treatment.

Skin problems are often the consequence of internal imbalances. Therefore, in addition to facial acupuncture, complementary and synergistic points are used on selected areas of the body. This integrated acupuncture treatment will help to improve the overall function of your internal system, strengthen the body’s vital energy, and create a more vibrant appearance.

Visible results are typically seen within 7-8 treatments, but many will experience a positive change in 3-5 sessions. According to a study reported by The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, among 300 patients treated with facial acupuncture, 90% had positive effects with one course of treatment. Effects included improvement in skin texture and coloring, and increased elasticity, and overall rejuvenation. The results of a 10-session treatment will have a long-lasting effect; however, follow-ups are recommended to be done once to twice a month after you complete your treatment course to maintain and enhance the effects.
