Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a centuries old practice originating in the Orient where the people already understood that beauty comes from within and manifests physically. It is a gentle, effective, and safe way to combat the signs of aging and erase years from your face without the risk or downtime of surgery or injections. Acupuncture offers many benefits to 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. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is much more than a cosmetic procedure. FRA changes the energy flow within the body and initiates the process for constitutional rejuvenation. If energy is not flowing freely throughout your body then your organs, muscles and lymphatic system cannot function properly, which can contribute to puffiness, bags and premature aging.

Chinese medicine is based on the principle that health is manifested from the inside out and that in order to look your best you must be healthy on the inside. There is a famous saying in Oriental Medicine, that is “when qi flows blood goes”. In western medicine this is referring to our circulation. Increased circulation is so important in fighting off many internal diseases. Using this Holistic approach, not only do your frown lines disappear, you feel better overall, sleep better, have more energy and better digestion. As you age, the 57 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 aging. 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 to 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 and elastin to be produced.

Facial Rejuvenation VS. Cosmetic Surgery:

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation is an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery with virtually zero side affects. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement when performed properly. Unlike cosmetic surgery that will have an extensive recovery period with major swelling and bruising and pain, there is no down time after Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture cannot actually change the shape of certain facial features such as your nose, cheekbones or chin but it is a more subtle rejuvenation and lifting that takes years off one’s face safely and naturally. The best part is it will improve overall health.
