What is Acupuncture facial rejuvenation?
Acupuncture uses three different modalities to rejuvenate the face.
The first modality, acupuncture, stimulates the growth of natural collagen in the skin, thereby reducing wrinkles and lines on the face.
In addition to acupuncture, Chinese herbs can be applied to tighten and beautify the skin. Finally, vibratory sound forks may be applied to the face to lift sagging tissues and restore elasticity..
Acupuncture was used as early as the Sung Dynasty (960 – 1280 AD) for the facial beautification of the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines.
How many treatments do I need?
For maximum effect, a series of 10 to 20 treatments are recommended. Treatments vary in duration depending on the facial composition of the individual. Initially, it is essential that the patient comes for 2 treatments for 2 weeks. A noticeable change, while varying from person to person, can usually be seen after the first 2 weeks.
Smokers and drinkers, or people with serious skin conditions, may require more treatments in order to achieve the same results. After completion of a series, maintenance treatments are advisable. While results can not be guaranteed, with the proper lifestyle and booster treatments, acupuncture face lifts can last for years.
What will the results be?
An acupuncture face lift tones and lifts facial muscles. Sunken areas of the face flesh out, sagging areas become toned, fine lines are eliminated and deeper wrinkles are reduced, giving radiance to the skin.
Healthy habits are necessary to maintain tone and radiance. Adequate rest, protein intake and avoidance of sugar, alcohol and tobacco are advised.
The end result will be the promotion of healthy aging, quality of life and balance. A feeling of well-being leaves the individual radiating with new confidence and joy.
How much does it cost?
Compared to the cost of medical procedures plus post-operative recovery time, acupuncture is extremely cost effective.
The price of an acupuncture facial rejuvenation may vary for a number of reasons:
- The condition of the face and the severity of the problem.
- The procedure required to transform your face into the new you.
- The number of treatments required to provide you with the most satisfactory results
Is it for me?
There are two groups of people who can benefit from acupuncture face lifts:
People in their thirties can use it as an preventive course of treatments to avoid the appearance of aging signs.
People in their forties (and older) can use acupuncture to erase up to 20 years of aging from their face.
If the answer to any or all of the questions below is YES then an acupuncture face lift is for you.
- Do you look older than your years?
- Do you have many facial lines and wrinkles?
- Are your facial muscles weak and sagging or are they tense and over-contracted?
- Do you look tired from overwork and lack of rest?
- Have your looks been damaged by poor diet, excessive alcohol intake, and tobacco usage?
- Medical vs. Holistic Interventions – What are the alternatives?
Common medical procedures used to achieve facial renewal include Botox injections, laser resurfacing, chemical peels and surgical face lift. For example, surgical face lifts cost on average $9,500, while Botox injections average $ 400 per injection and Laser skin resurfacing cost an average of $2,300.
