Cosmetic Acupuncture, also called Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a safe and almost painless non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging that start to develop on one’s face.
It is rooted in Chinese Medicine which has 3 main philosophical pillars: the Yin-Yang theory, the theory of the Five Elements and the theory of Qi.
Acupuncture, as a means to bringing balance in the body, involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face and body. This insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the aging lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion. Yin must balances the Yang and vice versa. This is the Local treatment which directly addresses the aging symptoms. We also employ Distal treatment (needles inserted on the body) to treat the underlying causes of facial symptoms and to reinforce the local points. Both Local and Distal treatments are performed in each session to provide the best treatment with lasting effects.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat many conditions and illnesses. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been studied and related to the manipulation of the energy points on the body to balance and to remove blockages in the meridians (channels of blood and Qi), in order to achieve health and to prevent diseases.
One acupuncture session lasts around 30 minutes and the package for the minimum 8 sessions needed to start seeing results costs 480.00 (tax included).
