Facial Acupuncture

“Non surgical process that connect your face and inner well being”

It is a favorite among stars such as Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Aniston.

Facial acupuncture works with the energy of the body to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve muscle tone and give you a beautiful overall glow and complexion.

Facial Acupuncture is a full constitutional treatment that views the face as an extension of the meridians of the body, which flow from the soles of the feet to the crown of the head.

An example of “full constitutional treatment” is a patient come for break out and dark spots on her chin. I don’t just give her the cream to put on her face but with my diagnosis, it might be from too much heat or stagnation of liver qi in the body. Acupuncture can reduce the heat in your body and also improve free flow of energy.

Facial also can improve blood circulation to the face and “excercise facial muscle“. When the face is needled, blood flow and qi carries nutrients to the cell; the body interprets the insertion of the needle as a “positive” injury (micro trauma), which, in turn, through stimulation of fibroblasts, can increase collagen output.

When needles are inserted at pressure points, energy and endorphins are released. This minor trauma improves blood flow and stimulates cell-regrowth and encourage the production of healing collagen, the protein which the body uses to keep the skin youthful and elastic.

The blood flow and Oxygen to these areas will be increased. The skin will then plum out and regenerate.
