Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture and Microcurrent

Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture and Microcurrent

Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture and Microcurrent is a natural approach to restoring healthy skin by promoting the relaxation of facial muscles and promoting the cellular fitness of the skin. The result is an improvement in muscle tone, glowing skin, and reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Facial Rejuvenation is gentle and has no side-effects or recovery time.

The aging process is influenced by your inherited genetic traits as well as how you take care of your body throughout your life: your lifestyle. Smoking, alcohol consumption, sun damage, a poor diet, stress and poor sleep are some of the factors which accelerate the aging of the skin and other organs.

Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture is a healthy alternative to invasive techniques such as injectables, fillers, dermabrasion, peels, and surgical procedures.

Ten Common Signs of Facial Aging

  • fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • sagging skin and muscles
  • hyperpigmentation (sun spots and age spots)
  • eyes: puffiness, bags, dark circles
  • face: puffiness
  • dull, dry skin
  • acne
  • rosacea
  • redness, chapped or irritated skin
  • broken capillaries

Your Skin Reflects Your Overall Health

The skin is the largest organ of the body. A cohesive envelope on the outside of the body, the skin acts as our first line of defense keeping pathogens from getting inside the body. It regulates the body’s temperature. It allow for toxins to leave the body. It protects us from environmental factors such as UV rays and pollution.

The facial skin is a reflection of the internal balance of the body. From the condition of the skin we can see internal imbalances. For example, swelling and puffiness can indicate a Spleen imbalance referred to as “Dampness”. If the skin is pale and dry it may be due to a condition called Deficient Blood because blood and tissue fluids moisten the skin. Redness and broken blood vessels can indicate inflammation.

Acupuncture treatment involves the use of very fine, delicate needles inserted superficially at points on the face to relax the facial muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Acupuncture points located on the body may be chosen to correct internal imbalances.

Microcurrent Electrotherapy

Microcurrent electrotherapy (MET) may be used in place of or in addition to facial needles. Microcurrent is a precise application of specific energetic wave-forms to the skin. This helps boost the energy production of the mitochondria. This abundance of energy promotes skin resilience by increasing cellular fitness, repairing damage, and restoring healthy energetic reserves.

Facial Rejuvenation helps to:

  • Eliminate fine lines
  • Soften deep wrinkles
  • Tone, relax, and nourish muscles
  • Improve skin texture, color, and luster
  • Increase energy in skin cells and tissue
  • Enhance overall appearance and health
  • Adjust internal imbalances and deficiencies
  • Reduce physical, mental, and emotional stress and tension

Every treatment is beneficial to the skin but a series of treatments gives the best results.

In general, a monthly Facial Rejuvenation treatment will promote skin health and reduce the signs of aging.
