One of the biggest beauty trends of the past several years is getting acupuncture for facial rejuvenation. There can a lot of fear and doubt surrounding a procedure that requires having needles stuck in your face, so let’s deal with that. Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is an extremely safe, relatively painless process that involves having ultra-thin needles inserted into a few points around the body, with even smaller dermal needles inserted into the fine lines and wrinkles of the face and neck.
These facial needles stimulate the flow of blood and lymph to the area, but they also stimulate collagen production which restores elasticity and a healthy glow to the skin. A normal course of treatment is seven to twelve sessions, either weekly or bi-weekly. After that, once every four to six weeks for maintenance is a good idea. You may start to notice fine lines disappearing after the fifth treatment, and deeper lines should start to transform several treatments after that.
Of course, even the inventors of acupuncture for facial rejuvenation will agree that true beauty comes from within. There are so many things that can affect the outer appearance. To that end, we will also work with our patients on their diet and general lifestyle habits. Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is a whole-person process, so you can expect to receive plenty of other treatment modalities, like herbal remedies and topical applications, gua sha, cupping, electroacupuncture, meditation instruction, psychotherapy, qi gong exercises, tui na massage, and more.
