1. Facial Rejuvenation
Younger, Fresher Skin
Have you ever wondered how some of Hollywood’s hottest celebs maintain their youthful, glowing complexions? We want to let you in on one of their best-kept secrets. Cosmetic acupuncture has been used in Hollywood for years by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Sean Connery, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.
What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Acupuncture treatments have long been used to alleviate and minimize pain, but this traditional Chinese medicine can also be used to achieve younger-looking skin. Also known as facial rejuvenation acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture is a natural alternative to cosmetic surgery that provides many of the same skin-saving effects
How does it work?
Practitioner places a series of ultra-fine acupuncture needles into and around wrinkles, facial muscles and pressure points. The placement of the needles increases collagen production and blood and lymph circulation to the face and scalp. With every needle insertion, the Practioner creates micro trauma causing the white blood cells to move to the area to repair the lines formed on the skin.
Getting results with cosmetic acupuncture
You should be able to see some results right away, but 12 to 15 treatments are usually recommended to achieve full effects. It’s generally recommended you go twice a week for six weeks, but this can differ for each person. Speak to the Practioner to determine your exact needs.
What are the beauty benefits?
Cosmetic acupuncture is known to help a variety of skin concerns including wrinkles, brow furrows, sagging skin, drooping jawline, age spots, puffy eyes, dark circles, pigmentation, smoking lines, drooping eyebrows and crows’ feet, to name just a few. Beauty benefits include the prevention of wrinkle formation, minimization of fine lines and improvement in the process by which skin regulates its quality and appearance — meaning improved skin texture and tone. Cosmetic acupuncture also accelerates anti-inflammatory activity and removes toxins from the skin, resulting in a youthful glow. This procedure also gives existing deep-set wrinkles a much smoother appearance.
What else can you expect?
The acupuncture needles cause more blood to circulate to the face, giving you a glow that no other treatment will. One can feel rejuvenated in and out and look 10 to 15 years younger. The treatment not only improves skin imperfections, but also provides an inner sense of well-being. “Patients often are stunned by the effect of this treatment and how great they feel.”
