Facial rejuvenation acupuncture was practiced as far back as China’s Song Dynasty (960-1279 A.D.). The techniques were used only for the imperial family and the royal concubines. Today, facial rejuvenation acupuncture is an amazing system to re-sculpt the face, neck and jaw areas to decrease wrinkles, reduce the signs of aging and promote a glowing complexion while supporting your overall health.
How Does It Work?
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese concept that the body’s motivating energy, qi, diminishes with age. This treatment hydrates and plumps the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, baggy eyelids, dark circles, discolored skin, scars, acne and other blemishes.
Acupuncture is not just a “facelift” it’s a holistic treatment which aims to restore well being of the body and as such may offer other health benefits.
As an alternative or in combination with acupuncture, cupping helps remove tension and improve the circulation of blood and energy, qi, around the face and neck resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Collagen has several layers and is found in the connective tissues. Connective tissue has a substance called hyaluronic acid. As a needle is inserted into the area, this substance expands due to the micro-trauma, and the wrinkle diminishes. The needle insertion causes the trauma potential that stimulates a response which then moves fibroblasts into the area of insertion. Fibroblasts will generate collagen, balance it out, reabsorb the excess, and stimulate circulation which nourishes the affected area.
