About Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture has been performed for thousands of years in China. This procedure was provided for the Empress and Emperor’s concubines as early as the Sung Dynasty (960-1270 AD). For centuries, the Chinese have known that beauty radiates from inside out. If the internal body is nourished and the energy and blood are flowing smoothly, the external body will reveal this radiance.

A study in 1996 in the international Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as many as 5 to 10 years from the face, with results apparent after just a few treatments. These treatments improve circulation of the face and body, bringing nutrients to the skin and removing metabolic toxins.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. Improved muscle tone and dermal contraction helps firm jowls and minimize double chins, while improved fluid metabolism reduces bags under the eyes and lifts droopy eyelids. Other likely results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; brightening of the eyes; improving of hormonal balance to help acne; reduction of stress evident in the face – bringing out your innate beauty and radiance.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Healthy facial coloring can be restored and there can be a tightening of the pores. Habitual expressions resulting from stress will be transformed, resulting in a remarkably younger, calmer, and less worn looking face.

The procedure works for men too, although not as many men request it.
