In our center, Helena Amos introduces a very efficient and successful method of cosmetic acupuncture. Acupuncture is the focus of and the most effective component in the Facial Rejuvenation Program. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Though Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger. The Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment is based on the principles of Oriental Medicine and involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs along channels or meridians of energy called Qi (pronounced chee). Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to the individual’s needs. Thousands of years ago the Chinese discovered that many meridians either begin or end on the face while some have internal branches that go to the face. Thus, practitioners of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture know how to specifically effect the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process.

What is the course of treatment?

Generally, the average number of sessions for this treatment is 12. The effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the seventh session. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to and during the treatment series. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five to ten years. It is often recommended to supplement the Facial Rejuvenation program with facial self-massage and/or Acupressure, Facial exercises, herbal and nutritional supplements, pure and authentic aromatherapy blends for the skin, and a healthy diet.

Why choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over a surgical face-lift?

While not a replacement for surgery, Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation is an excellent alternative. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement when performed properly. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration, there is no need to hide after Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. While Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture cannot reshape one’s nose or chin, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off one’s face–safely and naturally, most importantly while improving overall health.

Does it really make a difference?

Many sources indicate that acupuncture has been used for almost 5,000 years to treat a wide range of conditions. Having proven itself with literally billions of people, acupuncture has survived the test of time. The use of acupuncture in cosmetology–especially in preventing and reducing wrinkles–has already attracted great attention in Japan, Hong Kong, and Sweden. The effectiveness of Acupuncture is due to its direct manipulation of the body’s energy system–balancing, removing blockages or adding energy when necessary.  A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, greater elasticity of the facial muscles, diminished wrinkles, better facial coloring, and overall rejuvenation–not confined to the face.
