What is facial rejuvenation acupuncture?
Thousands of years ago the Chinese discovered that energy meridians either begin or end on the face or have internal branches that go to the face. Practitioners of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture know how to specifically affect the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is more than just an acupuncture facelift. It is based on the principles of Traditional Oriental Medicine (TCM) and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, and legs along energy meridians. Specific points are chosen based on the individual’s constitution and unique needs.
The process is designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
Why Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Our modern lifestyle, our emotions, our stress levels, everything we eat and drink, even the air we breathe, affects our skin. Premature wrinkles, dark circles and bags under the eyes, loose saggy skin, dry patches, can all result when conditions are less than ideal.
If you suffer from pain due to arthritis or migraines, PMS or even depression, it is bound to show up on your face. Frown lines are a classic example. Common medications can reduce the amount of nutrients and oxygen that reach your skin. Toxins accumulate. Blotchy skin, acne, melisma and broken capillaries, can all result from these conditions.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is an excellent alternative to more invasive and aggressive cosmetic procedures like surgery, injections and chemical peels. While it cannot reshape your nose, it does rejuvenate your entire system. This takes years off or your appearance, safely and naturally while improving your overall health. It is safe, virtually painless, no risks of disfigurement and no down time. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery.

Acupuncture works by treating the whole body and addressing the underlying causes of aging and disease. The whole person is evaluated, the whole person is treated.
What is the course of treatment?
Generally, it consists of 12-15 treatments depending on someone’s health and lifestyle prior to treatment.
After the first treatment you should notice an increased glow to your complexion, as the flow of qi and blood to the face is increased. Your face appears more open and there is a clarity and sparkle in your eyes (we call this clear “Shen” or “spirit” in Chinese medicine). You appear to be more rested. Wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned.
The effects become most noticeable and lasting around the 6th or 7th session. There are even more marked changes in wrinkles, skin tone and complexion. The impression of relaxation and calm is more pronounced. People may ask you if you just got back from a vacation. Lifting of the jowls, neck and eyes has begun and is usually noticeable.
By then end of a series, you can look and feel 5-15 years younger. These results may vary slightly, depending upon how well you have taken care of yourself during the process, and afterward. At this stage, booster treatments provide ongoing support within a normal process of aging and can prolong the results of the series for 5-10 years.
A 1996 report in the international Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment.
