Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that is beneficial for the body and can have beneficial effects beyond the face and skin. Acupuncture works to achieve balance between the yin and yang energies in the body.
The stimulation of the skin with acupuncture needles increases circulation, which in turn promotes healing and rejuvenation. The needles also trigger the body to produce more collagen, which smooths out wrinkles and improves the elasticity of the skin.
Acupuncture can also help in treating underlying causes of facial wrinkles. For example, a person may have vertical creases between their eyebrows because of habitual expressions of frustration and anger. In this case, acupuncture on points such as Liver 3 can help to smooth the liver qi.

What Does Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation Include?
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that addresses the entire body. It treats the flow of energy and blood and can be beneficial for reducing signs of aging. During a treatment, the practitioner will assess your lifestyle and health and adjust your acupuncture points accordingly. In some cases, you will receive multiple treatments throughout a series of months.
We will assess the areas of imbalance in your body and customize acupuncture points on the face and body to rebalance you, activating your body’s natural ability to heal itself. The acupuncture points chosen are customized for your symptoms and overall health. Facial acupuncture treatment is done not just in the face but also in the whole body. During the treatment, you’ll lie still and relax. After the acupuncture we will give you facial gua sha, cupping, or a facial massage.

Facial Gua Sha Or Facial Cupping

This will encourage any toxins to leave the body by activating the body’s natural pathways of elimination.
How Long Is A Facial Rejuvenation Session?
The initial visit is 75 minutes and follow up visits are 60 minutes.
What Are Facial Cupping Therapy And Gua Sha?
Gua sha can be translated as scraping and it is a technique that is used on the body and face to break up stagnation and encourage the flow of qi and blood. When applied to the face a jade tool is used and the movement is slow and deliberate, which activates underlying fascia and promotes rejuvenation from below the level of the skin. It is also extremely relaxing, which gives the face suppleness and the ability to let go of any stagnant qi. The end result is a smoother, more contoured complexion.
Cupping has a similar ability to move stagnation and encourage flow, but focuses more on lymph drainage when applied to the face. Unlike the cupping that is done on the body, this does not leave marks on the face. Instead, it reduces puffiness and creates a healthy sculpted look.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture will leave you with a more lifted appearance and healthy glow after just one treatment. For longer lasting changes including softening of creases and more sculpted contours, a series of 10-12 treatments over 6-10 weeks is recommended. Monthly follow-up visits help to maintain the results of a series of treatments.
When Should I Seek Treatment?
Treatment is effective at any stage of concern, whether you are looking to prevent issues or have long-standing ones. Opening the flow of qi and blood in the face will retrain the muscles and skin, mitigating the effects of gravity, stress, pollution, and general stagnation that take a toll on the face.
What If I Have Botox Or Fillers?
Chinese medicine can be used alongside botox or fillers but you will have to wait 10 days after you’ve had Botox and 3 weeks after fillers before having any other therapies administered on the face.
What Can Cosmetic Acupuncture Treat?
Many of your concerns can be addressed using acupuncture facial rejuvenation including wrinkles, sagging skin, acne, hyperpigmentation, and puffiness from poor lymph drainage. Approaching these concerns from a holistic perspective is deeply effective as it goes to the root of the issue and then works outward. In addressing the whole person, you can also see other health concerns such as digestion, sleep, stress, anxiety, jaw tension and TMJ, and headaches will also improve. So in the end, not only do you see a difference in your appearance, but you also feel better.
