The following are the most frequent questions asked of me about facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, or the acupuncture facelift.
1. What is facial rejuvenation acupuncture?
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is the placement of fine needles in specific points on the face to reduce fine lines, crow's feet, puffiness, and dark circles under they eyes. The needles cause a micro-trigger of qi (your body's naturally-occurring energy) and blood flow below the surface of the skin. The results are subtle, but noticeable.
2. Who should get facial rejuvenation acupuncture?
A person may wish to have facial rejuvenation acupuncture if he/she: has been under stress, wants to appear 5 - 10 years younger, or wants a youthful, glowing complexion.
3. How many sessions should I have?
A typical course of treatment is two sessions per week for 4 - 6 weeks. My fee is $125 for the first session and $80 for subsequent sessions. Don't forget that the phenomenal clinic in which I practice, Healing Hands Wellness Center , offers you a complementary 30-minute massage with your first acupuncture session.
4. Is this something that I will need to continue?
You will not need to continue treatment, but you will probably want to. Patients are typically so happy with their results that they continue treatment once per month to maintain. In addition to being a Licensed Acupuncturist, I am a Certified Traditional Chinese Nutritionist. So, I provide you with instructions on how to keep your skin in impeccable condition with diet. This part of your treatment plan is complementary and ongoing, meaning that I will be available via phone or email for as long as you like.
5. Will I bruise?
There is a possibility of bruising with acupuncture. If you are a person who bruises easily, you will want to consider that before you decide whether or not facial rejuvenation is right for you.
As always, I welcome your questions and comments. Thank you for reading.
