Cosmetic Acupuncture may take 5-10 years off your face. It helps to eliminate fine lines and makes the deeper lines look softer. It can also help to minimize dark circles, puffy eyes, double chin, sagging skin, and drooping eyelids.
Your face will be rejuvenated from the inside-out. The tell-tale sign of someone getting facial acupuncture is called the “acu-glow”. Your skin seems to glow from within!
Is it really a facelift? The answer is an unequivocal no. Nor is it intended to replace a facelift. Cosmetic acupuncture entails no incisions, sutures or acid peels and it will not produce sudden, drastic changes in underlying structures. Remember, it took decades of stress, sun damage and exposure to environmental toxins for your skin to reach a state of crisis, and the damage will not be instantly undone.
If your features are tired, your eyes are baggy and your skin is without luster, yet you do not feel the need for cosmetic surgery, then facial acupuncture may be for you. The freedom from post-treatment downtime and the experience of enhanced vitality contribute to the ever-increasing popularity of this Asian art. If you are willing to try something different and new, you may find that facial acupuncture is the perfect partner in your quest for rejuvenation and renewal. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is virtually painless.
A Non-Surgical Facelift
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This stimulates the skin’s natural injury repair and response system. The skin sees the needle site as a wound, and encourages cells from collagen and elastin fibers to migrate to it. The process of wound healing balances out the dispersal of collagen. This system can initiate fibroblasts to lay down new collagen fibers along the sites of the wrinkles, creating better looking and feeling skin. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.
The remedy cosmetic acupuncture may offer is reduction or erasure of fine lines and the softening of deeper ones. Additionally, patients may experience the firming of jowls and a reduction in the size of under-eye bags. It is not unusual for clients to report enhanced skin tone, increased energy and eyes that sparkle. If you have relatively good skin, the treatments are more preventative. The focus is on enhancing the clarity and glow of your skin.
Recommended Protocol for the most beneficial results are 2 Treatments per week over 6 weeks. Noticeable results (however, at slower rate) are 1 Treatment per week over 12 weeks.
