Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, is a painless, non-surgical procedure that is effective in reducing the signs of aging. Hair-thin acupuncture needles are inserted in specific locations on the face, ears, neck, hands and feet based on the principles of Traditional Eastern Medicine. The disposable needles are placed in energy channels (or meridians) that either begin or end on the face, or that work to modify the energy flow of a person’s body. Therefore, a certified practitioner of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture knows how to influence the signs of aging on the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.
As blockages in the meridians are removed and energy is free to move, blood and energy flow to the face and properly nourish, hydrate, and tone the skin while diminishing fine lines. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can erase 5-10 years from your face, with results apparent after just a few treatments.
After treatment, the patient will notice:
While the face is being treated, it is important to understand that the whole body is evaluated and attended to as well, for a whole body and mind approach.
While not a replacement for surgery, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is an excellent alternative. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement (slight bruising can occasionally occur). Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discolouration, there is no trauma from Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. While Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture cannot reshape one’s nose or chin, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off one’s face safely and naturally while improving overall health.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is contraindicated for some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, and individuals who have a pacemaker, or who have a problem with bleeding or bruising. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture should not be done during pregnancy, during a bout with a cold or flu, during an allergic attack or an acute herpes outbreak.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years in East Asia. As early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD), Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines. East Asia discovered and utilized ways to change the energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. Knowing that beauty radiates from the inside out, they manipulate the body’s energy flow to nourish and condition the internal and thus the external body.
