Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a great alternative for anyone looking for a safe holistic approach to reverse the aging process by looking and feeling younger. Facial acupuncture reduces the signs of aging and stress by regenerating the skins appearance to provide a youthful, brighter and smoother skin tone, by working both locally to improve blood circulation, increase collagen production, tighten pores, improve muscle tone as well as working at a systemic level to correct the physical and emotional imbalance that’s contributing the facial issue and aging process.
How does it work?
The East Asian Medicine theory is that your internal state of health and being is reflected on the exterior. So if you want to change the exterior you must address the interior imbalance. I don’t just treat the face since it’s just one part of the body. In an effort to create change in the whole body I also use additional acupuncture points to address any health issues so your whole body and all its systems are working together in optimal balance. In this state our bodies are efficient and we can see and feel the difference.
In understanding how it works in Western medicine terms the insertion of ultra-fine acupuncture needles into the dermis produces a “mirco-trauma” thus stimulating collagen and elastin production in the area. Collagen and elastin make up the fibrous matrix that provides our skin with its firmness, lift and elasticity.
What kind of results can you expect?Wrinkles and fine lines are decreased by the increase of blood flow, collagen and elastin produced by needle insertion in to the dermis. Dark circles under the eyes are improved and are a result of poor circulation and loss of collagen. Jaw line definition is improved by toning the facial muscles that are overused as well as relieving tension. A glowing complexion and tone by increasing blood flow and Qi (energy) to the face. Improved hormonal balance and decreased inflammation to help reduce acne, rosacea and redness. You can expect your overall appearance to improve creating the youthful natural look you forgot you had.
