Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

 

 

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture was originally developed for patients with paralysed muscles due to facial paralysis or stroke. The result was so cosmetically profound that it was transformed into an anti-ageing beauty treatment.

Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is applied to bring a healing sense of balance to the whole body, which is the perfect integration of beauty and health treatments. Acupuncture addresses the root cause of changes in your appearance, resulting in a more youthful appearance and a healthy body!

What are the effects?

Facial rejuvenation may erase as many as 5-7 years from the face. It can eliminate fine lines, soften deep wrinkles, and improve the tone and elasticity of the skin. It can also help minimise dark circles, reduce puffy eyes, and perk up drooping eyelids. Acupuncture treatments are also extremely relaxing, helping the body cope with stress, thereby bringing out your body’s innate strength, vitality and, health.

Why choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over a surgical facelift?

Facial rejuvenation is an effective holistic alternative. it is less costly than cosmetic surgery, is completely safe, virtually painless, and has no side effects or risk of disfigument. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration, there is no trauma associated with Facial rejevenation Acupuncture.

In some cases slight bruising may occur, especially around the eye or neck area. this is nothing compared to the bruising, pain and swelling associated with a surgical procedure. Any bruises that appear after a treatment will disappear in 3-7 days.

What is the course of treatment?

Facial Rejuvenation consists of 10 treatments. We recommend that clients have sessions two times per week to get maximum results. This means that a full course of sessions takes 5 weeks to complete. Periodic follow up treatments are necessary to maintain your results.

When will I see results?

Some results may be seen as early as the 2nd or 3rd session but the effects become most noticeable on about the 7th or 8th session. In some exceptionally difficult cases, the course of treatment may need to be repeated.

Are there any contraindications?

Similar to ordinary acupuncture, treatment is not recommended for those with a pituitary malfunction, individuals who have a pacemaker or those who have a problem with bleeding or bruising. Facial Rejuvenation should not be done during pregnancy, while suffering from a cold or flu, during an allergic attack or during an acute herpes outbreak.
