Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical technique of reducing the indications of the aging process. The approach consists of insertion of hair-thin acupuncture needles into certain places of the face and/or the body. Certain acupuncture points are selected to handle the flow of energy in the body based on the individual's needs. Numerous 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 rejuvenation approach designed to bring out your innate elegance and radiance.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture assists to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction particularly in the face and neck. It has been proven to increase collagen production and facilitates in its dispersal. A research published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture noted that among 300 cases treated with rejuvenation acupuncture, 90% experienced marked results with a single course of acupuncture treatment. Rejuvenation acupuncture helps reduce dark spots and discoloration of the face. Therefore, it makes you feel and look younger.

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

While not a substitute for surgery, facial acupuncture is an excellent alternative. It's far less expensive than cosmetic surgical treatment. While it is safe and virtually painless, it has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. Unlike surgery that can have an prolonged recuperation period with swelling and discoloration, there is no trauma from rejuvenation acupuncture. Although facial acupuncture is not able to reshape one's nose or chin, it's a much more subtle rejuvenation that will take years off one's face safely and naturally at the same time improving overall wellbeing.
