Whether it’s called facial rejuvenation, acupuncture face-lift, or cosmetic acupuncture, this treatment tackles wrinkles, muscle tension that may cause unsightly lines, as well as systematic issues standing between you and glowing skin. Its holistic approach appeals to those who want to slow signs of aging, but don’t want to undergo surgery or inject chemicals.
In traditional Chinese medicine, skin problems are considered a reflection of disharmony. A lackluster complexion can often be caused by a lack of energy (also called qi) flowing through the body's meridians. Acupuncture can raise and balance your natural vitality, thus kick-starting the regenerative process.
Facial acupuncture addresses not only the visible symptoms but also the root cause of the problem. Due to the stimulation of acupoints on the face — as well as related acupoints on the body such as the hands and legs — clients will notice improved skin circulation, lymphatic drainage, and collagen production.
I also include cupping therapy as part of each treatment. The process of gently, manually sucking up sections of the face also improves skin circulation, encourages lymph drainage, tones tissue that is flaccid, and relaxes tightness.
