Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
About Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture can address concerns including deep wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness without the possible side effects of more extreme treatments like Botox or surgery.
Wrinkles are created by a decrease in collagen and elastin and by the chronic overuse of certain muscles in the face along with the underuse of others. We tend to make the same facial expressions, like smiling or laughing, over and over and use the same muscles repeatedly in doing so. This leaves some muscles chronically in contracture while others remain loose, creating wrinkles in the skin. Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture relieves the tension in those tightened muscles and improves muscle tone in the others. The insertion of the needles into the dermis layer of the skin helps to boost circulation to the face and stimulates the skin to increase collagen and elastin production (which is responsible for creating a plump, youthful appearance.)
In order for the face to be properly nourished, all systems of the body should be functioning efficiently, including digestion and circulation. That’s why Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture treatments begin with a comprehensive consultation to address any concerns you may have, not only about the face but about the entire body. The treatment is individualized for each patient’s specific needs.
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture is usually done in a series of treatments. After the first treatment, one should expect to see an increase in skin tone and texture and an overall glow due to the improved circulation. After a series of treatments, you can notice a reduction in fine lines, puffiness, and, most importantly, an improvement in overall health.
