Face, Neck & Body
Everyone wants to look and feel younger. While cosmetic procedures can be pricey and scary, natural approaches to health and youth are equally available, more affordable and take advantage of our own bodies’ natural resources, rather than external chemicals or procedures. Eating wholesome organic foods, drinking adequate water and getting plenty of exercise are keys to good health both inside and out. But, frankly, we have often ignored the completely beautifying applications of natural wellness practices.
For sustaining a youthful glow and tight skin, hundreds of creams and potions promise to diminish wrinkles and fine lines, to lift and tone, and to lighten spots. Just how beneficial these products may be is debatable though and many of them are full of potentially harmful chemicals. More and more people are turning to acupuncture for facial rejuvenation, sculpting and lifting. Style and beauty magazines list numerous celebrities—Gwyneth Paltrow,
Madonna, Kate Moss, and Angelina Jolie—who may use beautifying acupuncture techniques. They ought to know, right?
Rejuvenation acupuncture actually dates back to the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD), the desire for youth and beauty seems ageless. Now where exactly do we find that Fountain of Youth?
For rejuvenation acupuncture (also called facelift or cosmetic acupuncture) delicate, hair-thin needles are used on acupuncture points to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, lift and tone the skin, increase collagen production, help decrease darkness and puffiness under the eyes, revive drooping eyelids, and brighten the eyes. Rejuvenation acupuncture can also help restore vitality and youth and decrease facial tension and stress.
The needles are inserted throughout the face and head, depending on the areas of individual concern. Acupuncture points on the body can also include the hands, feet, legs, arms and stomach. For best results with facial rejuvenation acupuncture, professionals typically recommend 10 to 12 treatments, once or twice a week.
Besides improving the body’s natural energy flow and vitality, the medical reasoning behind facial acupuncture is sound. The tiny, almost imperceptible micro-stimulation triggers the body’s natural immune system, increasing blood flow locally, lymphatic drainage, and a biochemical response leading to increased collagen production to local areas that were needled on the face. Other points affect hormones and the overall balance of the individual.
Not only can rejuvenation acupuncture session act on the face, but it can trigger an increase in balance and relaxation throughout the body, affecting mood, stress and sleep.
A series of Acupuncture for the facial rejuvenation treatments can:
Erase fine lines, diminish deeper wrinkles
Lift sagging eyelids, reduce bags/circles around the eyes
Firm jowls and minimize double chin
Boost muscle tone and increase collagen production
Eliminate puffiness by improving metabolism and eliminating excess fluids
Stabilize hormonal balance, reduce acne
Increase circulation of blood and lymph to the face that improves color
Moisturize the skin and tighten pores
Significantly reduce the appearance of scars and age spots
Slow the aging process from within
Reduce stress evident in the face
Promote overall health and well being
The rejuvenation procedures also include cupping, massage and gentle scraping (gua-sha) of the face. All of these techniques do not produce bruises, so one doesn’t have to have recuperation time (hide from others). The results can be seen, if not immediately, than gradually improving during following 72 hours.
Acupuncture treatments would not cause any side effects, are very safe and effective. They are economical as well. The series of 12 sessions would cost $..., it looks like a lot, but some cosmetic procedures like surgeries and Botox can cost much more and the results are ALWAYS uncertain, to say the least. Acupuncture treatments are NEVER harmful. The worst-case scenario - nothing would change, but that never happened either.
Please consider acupuncture for facial rejuvenation a resource that would never fail you and schedule your appointment as soon as you can. Looking forward to share the joy of rejuvenation with all of you!
