Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation FAQ
How does it work?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture includes body points to stimulate metabolism, whole body rejuvenation, and healing from within. This activates deep relaxation of the body and mind. Strategically placed facial points lift and tone the face, while stimulating collagen to fill in fine lines and soften skin.
What happens during each session?
During your first treatment, we will discuss your health history and treatment goals. I will then place the points and allow you to rest comfortably one the treatment table. Most people fall into a restorative sleep as I am placing the points. After your rest period, the points are removed, and you will receive a gentle face and scalp massage to promote further circulation and relaxation.
What is the course of treatment?
The initial course of treatment is 12 sessions administered twice weekly followed by monthly or quarterly maintenance visits. Most people report they have a radiant glow and feel better after the first session. The effects become most noticeable and lasting around the seventh session. Everyone responds differently depending on his or her constitution and lifestyle. After the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions prolong the results for 5-10 years.
Recommendations for at home care such as self-massage, exercise and a healthy diet are tailored to the individual.
Do I need a separate series of treatments for each area of concern?
No. We will treat all your facial rejuvenation concerns comprehensively.
I have studied three different styles of Cosmetic Acupuncture and have formulated my own protocol, customized to the individual. My treatment philosophy is to lift and tone all the facial and neck structures while promoting collagen and elastin to flourish in the tissues. I also “spot” treat the specific areas of concern as this varies with everyone.
Does it really work?
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. Acupuncture has been treating and preventing illnesses for thousands of years. The efficacy of acupuncture is due to its direct effect on balancing the body’s bioelectric system.
Why should I choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over cosmetic surgery?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a holistic way to look and feel better without surgery. It costs far less than cosmetic procedures and is safe and effective. No extended recovery time is needed and it provides a natural way to refresh your appearance while enhancing your overall health and wellbeing.
Can I have Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture if I have had cosmetic surgery, Botox or injectable fillers?
Acupuncture helps to speed healing and stimulates your natural collagen production and cell metabolism. We will work together to optimize your results and other procedures.
Botox: I recommend waiting 2 weeks after Botox before acupuncture on the face.
Cosmetic Fillers: The cosmetic-type injectable fillers take about 7-10 days to integrate into your skin’s collagen structure. We would work around the injected area during that timeframe.
Cosmetic Surgery: If you are having a surgical procedure, I recommend non-cosmetic acupuncture treatments before and after your surgery to increase your body’s healing mechanisms. Acupuncture before surgery will boost your immunity, and acupuncture post surgery will help speed your recovery and reduce swelling.
What can be achieved by treatment?
Used as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD), Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may eliminate as many as 5-15 years from the face. The cumulative stress, tension and emotions held in the face and body are released, allowing your authentic glow to emerge. More than just a cosmetic procedure, the rejuvenation process helps your whole body look and feel better.

Do I need to take time off work while undergoing treatment?
No downtime is required and many people come in on their lunch hour. If you are doing facial rejuvenation for a special event, I recommend completing your sessions 2-4 weeks ahead of your event. For individuals who are on blood thinners or bruise easily, Arnica gel/cream and pellets can help minimize bruising. Reducing sugar, processed foods and alcohol before and during treatment will lower inflammation systemically and reduce any chances of bruising.
