Until recently Cosmetic Acupuncture had remained one of the best-kept secrets of Hollywood’s rich and famous. This has recently changed with celebrities such as Madonna, Prince William, Cher, Angelina Jolie,Claudia Schiffer and Gweneth Paltrow coming forward as spokesmen for the effectiveness of CosmeticAcupuncture. Now it is becoming more and more popular among health and beauty conscious women and being addressed in the media more often as a natural way of acheving true beauty that brings out from your internal body. It is a non-surgical procedure that will help revitalize your whole body. The rejuvenated face is just a reflection of a healthy, well-balanced body. Cosmetic acupuncture treats underlying causes, which become reflected in the face through dark circles, dry or lusterless skin, drooping eyelids, blemishes, or excessive wrinkling.
By activating acupuncture points on the face, acupuncture regulates the flow of energy (qi) and removes blockages in the meridians to improve overall health and restore balance to the body. Cosmetic acupuncture helps to hydrate and nourishes the skin from within and the effect will be optimized when the herbal remedy is used conjunctionally. Fine lines can be erased, deeper lines reduced acne reduced due to improved hormonal balance, sagging eyes/neck firmed and aged spots faded. The purpose is to bring out the nature glow, radiance and younger looking skin inside out by treating your body as a whole.
Our treatment plan includes: assessment, medical and cosmetic acupuncture, facial massage and post-care guide (such as herbal remedy and daily nutrition guide). A typical treatment program includes 12 sessions (1-2 sessions/week). Since facial acupuncture treatment is not a surgical procedure that has quicker effect and since this treatment plan addresses not only your external symptoms on your face but also root of the underlying cause of that condition, more treatment time is required and remember this is natural way of keeping your skin healthy and young. Typically after the 6th or 7th treatment the facial skin starts to look younger and healthier. Often the herbal medicine is part of the treatment depending on the patient’s condition to enhance the effect of the facil acupuncture treatment. After the program is completed, a follow-up treatment of every 4 to 6 weeks is recommended to maintain the benefits.
