Facial Acupuncture, done as part as a regular program of skin care, can prevent the appearance of crows feet, sagging jowls, droopy eyelids and turkey neck before they happen. Once these signs of ageing do begin to appear, needles can be used to increase collagen production, stimulate blood flow, relax atrophied muscles, and brighten a dull complexion.
Techniques such as facial cupping, facial Gua Sha, and micro-needle dermal rollers further enhance the effects of the treatments. Treatments are very relaxing and you will look forward to the refreshed, rested appearance you attain from each and every session.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has become an increasingly prestigious treatment due to highly effective, natural, and safe procedures to reduce the signs of ageing; the practice itself has actually been around for centuries. Acupuncture can offer many benefits for those who want to revitalize the look and feel of their skin. It builds collagen, tones muscles, improves circulation, and stimulates blood flow with no risk of scars, infections, rashes, or toxic build-up of chemicals.
Unlike traditional cosmetic surgery, Rejuvenation Acupuncture uses a holistic approach to change the energy flow throughout the entire body, allowing for better sleep, increased energy, and better digestion. When the body is at a more rested, healthy state on the inside, the outside reflects this state with a healthier and more youthful appearance.
With a series of Facial Rejuvenation treatments we can achieve a multitude of results including:
As you age, the fifty-seven muscles in your face gradually lose their tone and mass. Loss of tone and mass causes the sagging, deep wrinkling and tired look associated with ageing. Acupuncture stimulates the muscle function, and the face lifts itself via the acupuncture points. Thus returning the face to a healthier, revitalized, youthful appearance.
Hair thin needles are placed in the outside of the ear to induce relaxation, and body points are used which correspond the individual’s specific needs. There is a sense of well being as a flood of endorphins is released throughout the body. Once you are in a state of deep relaxation, needles are placed on the face in acupuncture points as well as wrinkles. The needles placed in the wrinkles create a micro trauma, which causes collagen to be produced.
Facial Cupping can be transformative to your appearance either as a standalone treatment, or as an addition to acupuncture facial rejuvenation. Cupping offers many additional benefits to help skin regain its youthful appearance such as:
Facial cups are small and come in a variety of shapes specially designed for your face. After applying a special lotion, a small cup is either “parked” for a few seconds over a deep wrinkle to increase blood flow to the area, or it is moved along the face and down the neck to drain lymphatic fluid and stimulate blood flow. These treatments bring collagen to the surface, reducing puffiness and dark circles, diminish lines, drain nasal sinuses and lymphatic system.
Conditions such as Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) and sinus pressure are also relieved. By increasing local blood supply, nourishment is restored to the muscles and skin allowing for toxins to be carried away through the veins and the lymphatic system.
Following a cupping session, a deep treatment mineral mask is left on the skin. This practice is particularly effective due to the increased blood flow.
Facial Rejuvenation Cupping is entirely painless and is not an irritant to the skin. It is safe to apply on rosacea, melasma, or sensitive skin.
Facial Gua Sha is a technique in which specially crafted hand-held tools of smooth jade invigorate the skin, smooth wrinkles, and increase blood supply. Facial Gua Sha can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions:
The increased blood circulation, which occurs during Gua Sha, helps to detoxify the face and move stagnant blood and inflammation which can occur under the eyes and chin.
A gentle massaging technique is used for deep lines, such as those between the eyebrows and on the forehead. This procedure relaxes the muscles, increases blood flow and rejuvenates the skin. The more relaxed the muscles are, the more relaxed you feel. Much in the same way that smiling causes you to feel happier, having a tensely furrowed brow can elicit, worry, pensiveness, and anger.
One of the most beneficial aspects of the treatment is that acupuncture points on the face are massaged with the Gua Sha tools, benefitting the internal organs. The better your liver, kidneys, and large intestines are working, the healthier your skin appears.
