Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Used by the empresses and concubines of ancient China and now the best-kept secret of Hollywood stars, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a whole-body approach to health and beauty. It is a safe and effective alternative to Botox and cosmetic surgery. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture works by increasing collagen production and fluid circulation in the face. It improves muscle tone, relieves tension in muscles, reduces the appearance of lines, and even improves facial coloring—all leading to a younger and healthier appearance.

What is Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a traditional Acupuncture treatment with a focus on the face and neck. By treating the whole body, we are able to affect constitutional problems, such as stress or digestive disharmony, which contribute to premature aging. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is gentle, and most patients experience a deep sense of relaxation during the treatments. Very fine needles and essential oils are employed to garner the most benefit, as well as facial cupping and gua sha with jade tools.

Process & Results

The course of treatment may vary, but I recommend 10 to 20 weekly sessions, followed by monthly maintenance treatments. Improvement may be seen after one treatment, but change is generally noticed in the 7th session. After the course of treatment, the results can be quite dramatic. Clients, on average, look 5-10 years younger and feel more confident about their appearance.

Who should perform Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Only a licensed acupuncturist with a special certification in facial acupuncture should perform this protocol. Optimally, it should be one who has studied under a master practitioner in this field.
