Are you looking for an alternative to cosmetic surgery for facial rejuvenation? Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture may be exactly what you’ve been looking for
Extremely fine acupuncture needles are inserted into powerful acupuncture points on your body and face to stimulate and balance energy (qi) flow depending on your constitution. All acupuncture energy lines, called meridians, begin or end on the face and therefore any imbalance within your internal energy system has an effect on your facial appearance. Needles are inserted into your arms, legs, trunk and face using gentle pain free techniques to ensure you have the most comfortable acupuncture experience.
The local acupuncture needling to your facial points and areas of concerns, such as lines, have been shown to have a strong impact on increased collagen and elastin production which may explain the effectiveness of cosmetic acupuncture. Many people feel deeply relaxed during a cosmetic acupuncture treatment due to the effect acupuncture has on the hormonal system, increasing relaxing hormones such as serotonin.
As well as receiving acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture treatments may incorporate various other techniques such as the use of jade rollers (dermal rollers), gua sha (Chinese spooning) and massage. Jade rollers gently roll over your skin promoting further circulation and blood flow, removing toxins and stimulating collagen and elastin. Gua Sha is a scraping technique incorporating the use of a flat jade tool with a rounded edge. The edge is used over lines, puffiness and sagginess to increase tone, smooth out lines and reduce toxins by activating the lymphatic system. Your diet and nutrition may also be adjusted and herbal formulas prepared to balance your body from the inside out.
The best results are experienced when all aspects of your health are re-balanced including your diet and nutrition. When cosmetic acupuncture is combined with herbal medicine, dietary change, dermal techniques and self-massage, the results are outstanding.
