Cosmetic Acupuncture, or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a non-surgical treatment that requires no injections or drugs and produces minimal unwanted side effects. The treatments are based on the principles of Oriental Medicine. Specific points are chosen to increase the movement of energy and blood within the body according to the individual's needs.
This superficial insertion will stimulate both blood and energy to the face, which will nourish and moisten the skin. It also increases collagen production, which fills out the lines and give firmness to the skin producing a healthy complexion. Collagen is a protein found in skin cells which stops being produced as we age. A lack of collagen is responsible for wrinkles, fine lines and loss of skin elasticity.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with cosmetic acupuncture, 90% had marked effect with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a healthier complexion, and overall rejuvenation - not confined to the face.
Cosmetic Acupuncture reduces the signs of aging, with results apparent after just a few treatments. Treatment plans range from 10-14 sessions depending on your concerns. Clients should begin to see noticeable results after 6-7 sessions.
