Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture or Acupuncture facelift is becoming a more popular non-surgical method for those who want to maintain beauty, radiance and vitality in the face as well as improving overall health and well-being.
It is a holistic alternative approach to help fight the aging process. It has been shown to promote collagen production, increase muscle tone and elasticity, thus helping to fill out wrinkles.
By inserting needles in the skin the flow of blood, lymph and Qi (energy) is heightened. This stimulates the body fluids to nourish the skin which in turn can improve the face’s natural healthy glow and lustre. This has been shown to help the skin look more radiant, to reduce fine wrinkles, to aid fading of aged spots,to improve muscle tone and to reduce sagginess .
Adjacent areas as in the sinuses, head, temperomandibular joints and teeth can also benefit with relief of symptoms in these areas.
