The Natural Alternative to Botox

< back    

        The question is not if you want to look and feel your best at any age, but how you will achieve a youthful, radiant, glowing, firm complexion and facial contour. Acupuncture facelifts were popular among the wealthy in China before the communist take over. Now those seeking to retain their youth and stave off wrinkles have rediscovered this centuries old technique.

What is Acupuncture Facelift?
        Acupuncture Facelift, otherwise known as Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation, has a lengthy history in traditional Chinese Medicine. It incorporates more than just the careful placement of needles to lift the face and combines classical acupuncture with the following modalities to get the best possible results in revitalizing and awakening the natural energy of the body to lift and firm the face.  Included in this treatment are Acupressure Facial Massage, Herbal Formulations, Qi Gong exercises (breathing) to increase energy and vitality of the skin, and Nutritional Counseling based on the homeopathic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
         The essential energy of the body known as "Qi" in Chinese Medicine travels via the acupuncture meridians that meet at the face. Acupuncture not only stimulates the local areas of the face, but also regulates the Qi and blood throughout the body.

  • Acupuncture increases blood flows
  • Regulates and regenerates skin cells
  • Increases the body's metabolism, which enhances the luster of the skin to achieve facial beauty and radiance
  • Is non-surgical and doesn't have side effects

Does Acupuncture Hurt? Will I be in Discomfort?
        There is a slight sensation of the needle upon insertion. This is very superficial and lasts for an instant. Most people experience a deep level of relaxation and peace that is part of a typical acupuncture treatment.

Is Acupuncture Safe and Clean?
        All needles utilized are individually wrapped, sterile and disposable according to OSHA guidelines (governmental regulations).
