How It Works
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a gentle, effective, and safe way to combat the signs of aging without the risk or downtime of surgery or injections.
As we age, the 57 muscles in the face gradually lose their tone and mass causing the sagging, deep wrinkling and tired look associated with aging. Needles placed at acupuncture points stimulate the muscles, and the face lifts itself returning it to a healthier, revitalized, more youthful appearance. The needles placed in the wrinkles create a micro-trauma, which causes collagen to be produced.
As early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD) acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperors. Recently Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation was demonstrated on the Dr. Oz show. (http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/acupuncture-facelift)

How many treatments are needed?
A typical course consists of 10 treatments.
Treatments are spread out once to twice a week and each generally lasts about 60 minutes.
Some people will start to notice changes after 2 to 5 sessions and most will see and have more lasting results after 7 treatments.
How long do the results last?
Each person's results are unique. However, as a general rule depending upon the overall quality of your health and how you take care of your skin, results can last from 15 months to 5 years. You can extend this with periodic maintenance treatments every 1 to 3 months or repeat an entire course after several years.
Other Treatments Offered

FACIAL GUA SHA & CUPPING
Facial Gua Sha and cupping can be transformative to your appearance either as a stand-alone treatment or as an addition to acupuncture facial rejuvenation. Gua Sha is a technique using pieces of smooth jade stone against the skin to help relax and smooth the muscles and increase blood supply moving stagnant blood and detoxifying the face. Facial rejuvenation cupping is entirely painless and does not leave any bruising as some may believe; small cups especially designed for the face are moved along the face to drain lymphatic fluid, increasing circulation and help the skin regain a healthier appearance.

A quick gentle facial peel that uses salicylic acid to exfoliate the upper layer of dead skin cells, stimulating collagen production and resulting in smoother, firmer, and brighter looking skin. It can help reduce fine lines, acne, and dark spots from aging or sun damage without any required downtime.
