What is a Cosmetic Acupuncture Face Lift?
Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe and effective method of using acupuncture needles to tone, tighten, and rejuvenate the look of your skin.
It can reduce deep wrinkles, fine lines, double chins, bags under the eyes, droopy eyelids, etc. to take years off the look of your skin.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a full body treatment that can improve the overall health of your body and restore a youthful glow to your face.
How does it work?
During your session, specialized hair-thin needles (sterilized and disposable) are inserted into specific areas of the face and body based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The stimulation from the needles increases blood flow to the face, bringing vital moisture and nutrients to the skin. It can cause collagen to be deposited into wrinkles and fine lines, thus reducing their appearance. Most importantly, it can tone the muscles of the face to tighten the skin and life sagging areas.
What results can I get?
You can expect a reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin; an overall tightening of skin and pores; lifting of droopy eyelids; firming pouches under the eyes; minimizing the 'double chin'; improving the texture of the skin; restoring healthy colour and glow to otherwise sallow skin. Results may vary from person to person based on their health history.
Why choose Facial Acupuncture over other procedures?
Facial acupuncture is a great alternative to cosmetic surgery, chemical peels, and injections. It is far less costly, much safer and virtually painless. There is no risk of disfigurement or the dangers associated with invasive surgery or surgical anesthesia. With cosmetic acupuncture, the fine acupuncture needles are specially designed to lessen any slight chance of mild pain or mild bruising. Unlike surgery, there is no trauma and extended period of swelling or discoloration.
Course of Treatment
Each facial acupuncture session is 1 hour long. A standard course of treatments are 10 sessions including a 30 minute initial intake. For best results, sessions are done twice a week for 5 weeks. In some cases, minimal maintenance treatments may be recommended.
"I wasn't sure what to expect. I first noticed how good my body and spirit felt after two treatments...peaceful and calm on the inside, lots of energy on the outside. In week three, I began to see a change when I looked in the mirror. There was a smoothness and openness in my face that was new. Subtle but noticeable. The lines didn't capture my attention like they used to do. Someone said to me "You look so fresh"! By week four, many of the small vertical lines around my lips that I really didn't like had disappeared. When I glanced in the mirror it seemed there was a lift in my eye area. They looked less hooded. Someone said my skin looked radiant. I also felt less inclined to wear lip colour whenever I went out. I found myself just reaching for a lip moisturizer. When I noticed this change in habit, I realized that my lips had more colour, they were more vibrant. I liked this! Week five came and as I washed my face in the shower I thought how smooth my forehead seemed. An upward stroke on my forehead was no longer like a bumpy ride on a rutted road! The furrowed horizontal lines that I had felt for as long as I could remember (my mother says I was born with them) were hardly noticeable to my touch. It seems now my face more closely matches the spirit and vibrancy I feel inside. I am grateful for this little correction, as if my system has been given a re-boot and my face reflects this. I would recommend Cosmetic Acupuncture to anyone wishing to feel more vibrant and youthful in both their skin and spirit!"
