Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a natural, painless, non-surgical approach to turn back the signs of aging that appear on your face. Treatments are individualized to address each patient's unique signs of aging, as well as underlying imbalances. Acupuncture needles are inserted in to specific points in the face, scalp, ears, torso, arms, and legs to work with the energy (qi) of your body and move you toward better health, inside and out. Assisting your whole body to feel and look its best and healthiest, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is more than a cosmetic procedure, it stimulates healing and promotes vibrant, beautiful wellbeing.

Some Frequently Asked Questions about Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture:
How many treatments will I need?
A Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture series is generally 10 to 15 treatments, with an average of twelve. Treatments are scheduled at once or twice a week. Three treatments a week are possible, as long as you are healthy and tolerate the treatment well. Treatments are best scheduled with at least one day between them.
Can my other health concerns be addressed while doing a Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture series?
Yes! Your individualized treatment plan can include acupuncture points that will address other issues. Also, other non-acupuncture treatment ideas may be suggested. In fact, for best Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture results, it is recommended that other health conditions be addressed.
When will I see results?
Results from Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may be seen as early as following the first treatment. It is usually around the 7th treatment that results are more dramatic, and lasting.
How long do results last?
Much like surgical face lifts, actual outcomes and the duration of the effects can not be predicted. Lifestyle and age can greatly affect maintenance of results. Results generally last 2-5 years, with maintenance, and sometimes much longer (10+ years).
What is needed to maintain results?
For best results, “booster” treatments are recommended, at least seasonally, and possibly monthly, to protect both your investment, and your health. The necessary frequency will be individually determined.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can address many different issues including: bags under eyes, sagging cheeks/jowls, drooping eyelids and eyebrows, puffy eyelids, acne, dry skin, red skin, red nose, pale skin, wrinkles (upper and lower lips, around eyes, forehead furrows, crow’s feet…), sinus congestion, puffy face, double chins, scars, enlarged pores, male-pattern baldness, broken capillaries, age spots, TMJ.
