Acupuncture for Facial Rejuvenation is a time-honoured method of slowing down the signs of aging while also addressing the overall health of the body. Although most women seek out Cosmetic Acupuncture strictly for the aesthetic benefits, it is actually based on a whole-body approach to health. The idea is that you look your best if you also feel your best.
Who should get Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Although there is no 'right or wrong age' for Cosmetic Acupuncture, women in their late 20's and through to their 40's will often see the most benefit. If worry lines and wrinkles are just starting to appear, this can help soften and slow the formation of fine lines. If lines are more pronounced and skin is starting to lose its lustre, it can help tighten and firm the skins appearance. The look of facial swelling may be reduced and skin texture will often feel smoother. Usually after even one session skin will take on a brighter and healthier look overall.
What should you expect?
As with almost any natural therapy, Cosmetic Acupuncture works on a gradual basis. Each session is meant to build on the previous one. This is not a quick-fix approach such as surgery, Botox or other injectables. It works slowly but is also non-toxic and has very few potential side effects. A typical treatment includes:
How often do I have to come in?
This can vary widely based on each individual's skin, health, age and goals for treatment. Best results typically require at least 5-6 visits, ideally on a weekly basis. Certain concerns can take longer to address, and may require 10-12 visits in order to see lasting results.
Results can vary based on an individual's lifestyle and overall health. Noticeable improvements to skin tone and wrinkle appearance can last 6 months or longer, especially if kept up with recommended monthly maintenance visits.
Who is not a good candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture?
