  • How does acupuncture work?
    Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. It is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese theory explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways in your body. More modern theories explain acupuncture as a technique for affecting changes in the body through myofascial, muscle, and neuroendocrine mechanisms.
  • Is acupuncture painful?
    Acupuncture needles are very thin, and most people feel minimal discomfort during the treatment. Some people even find acupuncture relaxing and may fall asleep during sessions.

    Acupuncture is generally safe when performed by a certified practitioner. Some people may experience minor side effects such as soreness, minor bleeding, or bruising at needle sites.

    It's recommended to rest and stay hydrated. Avoid strenuous activities for the rest of the day.

  • What is facial rejuvenation acupuncture?
    Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a natural anti-aging treatment that aims to reduce the signs of aging by inserting very fine needles into specific points on the face. This practice stimulates the body’s healing energies (Qi) and increases blood circulation to the face, which can improve skin texture and tone, reduce wrinkles, and promote overall facial health.
  • How does facial rejuvenation acupuncture work?
    This technique works by creating micro-traumas in the skin with fine needles. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which helps in reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and improves skin elasticity. Additionally, it enhances blood circulation, which can lead to a more radiant and even skin tone.
  • How many sessions are required for optimal results?
    The number of sessions varies depending on individual skin conditions and goals. Typically, a course of treatment involves 10-15 sessions. Some may see changes as soon as 5-6 sessions, while others may need the full course for noticeable improvements.
  • Are there any side effects or risks with facial rejuvenation acupuncture?
    Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is generally safe when performed by a qualified practitioner. Some clients might experience slight bruising or redness at the needle sites, but these are typically mild and transient.
  • Who is a good candidate for facial rejuvenation acupuncture?
    This treatment is suitable for individuals looking for a natural, less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery or chemical treatments. It's ideal for those who wish to not only enhance their physical appearance but also improve their overall well-being. However, it’s not recommended for individuals with certain health conditions, such as bleeding disorders or chronic skin diseases, so a consultation is always advised before beginning treatment.
