Facial Acupuncture

 

Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation can address many issues appearing on the face by working both locally to improve circulation, increase collagen production, and improve skin tone and at a systemic level to correct the cause behind the facial issue. 


Benefits include:

Increases the production of collagen and elastin

Improves local lymph and blood circulation

Improves muscle tone

Softens or erases fine lines and wrinkles

Decreases puffiness under the eyes

Reduces or eliminates acne and rosacea

Provides a consistently smoother and brighter face


Facial acupuncture offers less risk, expense and recovery time than medical alternatives. While this procedure cannot reshape facial features, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that can take years off one’s face safely and naturally while improving overall health.


Contraindications:

Severe High Blood Pressure (it is ok if BP is under control and patient is seeing a medical doctor)

Severe migraines (if migraines only occur every 3 months, they can receive facial acupuncture treatments)

Keep in mind it takes 3 weeks to recover from laser resurfacing on the face. Do not needle during recovery time. Patients must wait one week after having microdermabrasion.


Patient’s should not receive facial acupuncture if they are:

Pregnant
Have a cold or the flu
Acute herpes outbreak
