Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical procedure of decreasing the signs of aging. The approach includes insertion of hair-thin acupuncture needles into certain locations of the face and the body. Certain points are chosen to regulate the flow of energy (Qi) in the body depending on the individual's needs. Many meridians either start or stop on the face while some have internal branches that go to the face. Hence, it is more than a cosmetic approach. It is a revitalization approach intended to bring out your innate elegance and radiance.

Rejuvenation Acupuncture assists to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction in particular in the face and neck. It has been shown to enhance collagen production and assists in its dispersal. An investigation published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture described that of 300 subjects treated with facial acupuncture, 90% had marked results with a single course of acupuncture treatment. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture assists to smooth away wrinkles, lift sagging face and droopy eyelids. As a result, it makes you look and feel younger.

Typically, rejuvenation acupuncture consists of 12 sessions provided twice every week. The results become most noticeable and long lasting typically after the seventh session of treatment, although many people notice the improvement a lot sooner. Each person responds in a different way, relying on his or her health state and life-style. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions, usually once a month, can prolong the effects for many years. It works the best when accompanied by traditional Chinese herbal skin care and facial acupressure.

Although not a replacement for surgery, rejuvenation acupuncture is an excellent alternative. It is much less costly than cosmetic surgical treatment. Despite the fact that it is safe and essentially painless, it has no adverse effects or risk of disfigurement. In contrast to surgery that may have an extended restoration period with swelling and discoloration, there is no trauma from facial acupuncture. Although rejuvenation acupuncture can not reshape one's nose or chin, it's a much more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off one's face safely and naturally at the same time improving overall health.
