Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture, is a safe and painless method for revitalizing the skin and reducing the signs of aging. This relaxing therapy follows both traditional and western approaches, where tiny facial needles are inserted to support collagen production, circulation and the balancing of meridians that are involved in aging skin.
This method can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, sagging eyelids and jowls, puffiness around the eyes, and redness throughout the face, all aiding in maintaining a youthful and radiant appearance. Younger patients may also opt for this therapy to slow the onset of aging skin, or if they experience blemishes, acne, dark circles, spots and inconsistencies of the skin.
After an initial intake with one of our Naturopathic Doctors, a facial acupuncture protocol will be created, which may include the use of body points on the hands, abdomen and/or legs to help support the body holistically through acupuncture. All subsequent treatments are 1 hour in length, which includes 30 minutes of acupuncture followed by a relaxing aromatherapy facial massage, which further promotes strengthening and rejuvenation of the skin. The typical protocol includes 10-12 weekly treatments, followed by a maintenance program as needed to uphold the integrity of the skin.
