Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe and painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging. Although Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is sometimes referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift or Cosmetic Acupuncture, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as many as 5 to 15 years from the face, with results apparent after a course of treatments.

Benefits of Facial Acupuncture

Fine lines may be eliminated and larger wrinkles diminished. Bags and puffiness under the eyes can be reduced or eliminated. Jowls become firmer. Facial puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized. Other likely results include: increased muscle tone and dermal contraction; increased production of collagen; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improved facial colour due to increases in circulation; moisturizing of the skin due to increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; improvement of hormonal balance to help acne and the reduction of stress. This method brings out the innate beauty and radiance of an individual.


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. These effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation not confined to the face.

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. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration, there is no trauma from 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 while improving overall health.

In rare occasions some people experience slight bruising, specifically around the eye or neck area, after treatment. This is minimal compared to the bruising, pain and swelling associated with a surgical procedure. These bruises will disappear in three to seven days.

Treatment Plan

A course of treatment consists of 10-15 sessions (generally 12). It is recommend that clients have the first 6 sessions twice a week and have the last 6 sessions once a week to get maximum result. This means that a full course of sessions takes 9 weeks to complete.

Some results may be seen as early as the 2nd or the 3rd session but the effects become more noticeable and lasting on or about the 7th or 8th session. In some exceptionally difficult cases, the course of treatment may need to be repeated again. As in surgical facelifts, the actual outcome and how long the effects will last cannot be predicted. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her age, condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. For this reason, results for some may be more or less dramatic than they are for others.

Following the initial course of treatment, monthly maintenance sessions can prolong the results for 5 to 10 years. The benefits of a monthly maintenance program are not limited to the face, but rather, improve the body’s overall health and vitality. This, in itself, slows down the aging process.
