Facial Rejuvenation is also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture and is a holistic, non-surgical, non-chemical treatment that reduces the signs of the aging process. Simply stated, the treatment enhances our physical appearance and overall health with the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. The insertion of sterile disposable needles into specific areas of the face, ears, hands, feet, and legs produces energy to reduce deep lines, eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, sagging and discoloration.

How Does It Work?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been proven to increase blood circulation and lymphatic flow throughout the body. Increased blood flow can balance out skin color and can help to maintain healthy skin and muscle tone.

Increasing lymph flow, the body can eliminate the buildup of toxic elements in the skin. Acupuncture has also been proven to strengthen the immune system, and our skin is an essential part of our immune system. The needles inserted into the face affect collagen and elastin production and its dispersal. Collagen is a protein produced by our bodies that is responsible for our skin's durability and resilience. Elastin is responsible for the elasticity of our skin.

The Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Are:

    Increased Collagen Production
    Elimination of Fine Lines
    Reduction of Wrinkles
    Brightened Facial Tone
    Reduction of Age Spots
    Clearing Acne
    Reduction of most Facial Scars

How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
For optimal results, a total of 2 to 5 treatments administered once a month are recommended. Continual and consistent treatments are crucial as skipping more than one month may require that the series of sessions begin again. Once full treatment is completed, the results can last up to two years.

Are There Any Side Effects?
Acupuncture needles are hair-thin and are rarely inserted more than 1/2 inch into your skin. Some patients may feel a small amount of discomfort at the initial insertion along with a slight risk of temporary bruising afterwards. Over time, however, this discomfort and bruising will give way to a unique sensation of relaxation that patients love of acupuncture.
