The Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture. This therapy combines the use of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture points on the body and micro-current stimulation of local points on the face to increase blood flow and stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. The treatment involves the insertion of ultra-fine needles at specific points of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs which encourage the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients. The treatment aim is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore organ balance to eliminate the root cause of facial skin problems. It stimulates collagen production, which may reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Patients respond differently according to their age, diet, and lifestyle.

In order to attain desired effects, a series of 10 weekly Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments are required. After completing a course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results. Maintenance sessions usually occur monthly for 2 to 3 months and then seasonally for as long as you wish to maintain results.
