Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture uses small 7mm intradermal needles to penetrate the skin to break down scar tissue from fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate collagen production.

For centuries, people from China have used acupuncture to benefit their longevity and health. Knowing that beauty comes from the inside out, they have mastered ways to increase energy flow within the body and speed up the healing process for rejuvenation. There are twelve main meridians in the human body and many begin or end on the face with internal branches that spread throughout the face. By stimulating certain points, blood and lymphatic circulation can be increased. This means that more nutrients can be delivered to aging cells and more toxins can be taken away.

How Does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Work?

When small intradermal needles are inserted underneath the epidermal layer of the skin, the body senses it as "trauma" to the skin. Henceforth, the body will start recruiting nutrients and increasing its own blood supply to the skin.  The skin then starts the "healing" process and produces more collagen, fibrin, and elastin molecules. New skin cells are produced and are laid down in the correct normal way, perpendicular to the original wrinkle or fine line. As a result, you see a younger and more rejuvenated face.

What Does a Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Session Feel Like?

You will be comfortably laid down on a treatment table while soft relaxing music is played in the background of a dimmed room. The face is first cleansed with a facial cleanser. Small intradermal needles will be inserted into fine lines, furrows, crow’s feet, and other problematic areas for the first half of the session. The most relaxing and rejuvenating process follows as your face gets a massage and scrub. This process will feel like acupressure or a lymphathic massage to the face to flush and detoxify the skin. At the end, a toner is applied, followed by moisturizer and/or sunscreen.

 

How Long Do I Need To Come For?

The best results have been noted when patients come for 1 treatment once a week for the first 4 weeks, followed by 1 treatment once every 2-3 weeks for the next 3 months (=10 sessions). Results are usually apparent after the 4th to 6th treatment.

 

What Are The Possible Side Effects?

  • Pain and numbness from local needle insertion to the face

  • Minor bruising usually resolved in 1-2 weeks

  • Sensitivities to natural products used (cleanser, toner, moisturizer, oil)
