Facial Renewal

“A beautiful face is a clear face which reflects the Spirit of the person.”

What is it?

Facial Renewal Acupuncture is a safe and ancient, non-surgical way of promoting “Healthy Aging”. It is a journey which involves the Body, Mind and spirit as a whole.

Oriental Perspective of Beauty

In the ancient texts, a beautiful face was defined as a “clear face which reflects the Shen or Spirit”. It has color, radiance and expression.

How Does It Work ?

Fine needles are placed on acupuncture points on the face and neck to stimulate the body’s Qi, or energy. Muscle groups are addressed as well as the acupuncture points, so the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which
improves facial color.

Is Facial Acupuncture For Everyone?

Contraindicated for:

  • Severe HTN not under control with meds.
  • Severe recurrent migraines.
  • 3 weeks after laser resurfacing of the face, 1 week after microdermabrasion, 6 months after surgical face-lift.

How Long Is The Treatment?

  • Usually 10-12 treatments.
  • 1 time a week for 90 mns.
  • Then, every 2 weeks for 2 months, then once a month.

The Use Of Chinese Herbs

The treatments incorporate Chinese herbal masks, poultices and moisturizersJade rollers to massage moisturizer into the skin.

Short & Long Term Effects of Facial Acupuncture

After the first treatment, there usually will be an increased glow to the complexion. Wrinkles start to lessen and the skin appears more toned. Around the 5th to 7th session, there will be significant changes in the appearance of the face. The impression of relaxation and calm is more pronounced. By the end of a series, the client should look and feel 5-15 years younger. Non-invasive, facial acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese wisdom on longevity, beauty and balance.
