Funded on the principles of Chinese Medicine, the procedure involves inserting needles on specific areas of the face and on the body. This is to address all areas that may be causing stresses that result in fine lines and wrinkles. An Acu-Lift offers a more holistic approach to achieving natural beauty.
What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture? Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture or Acupuncture Facelift (Acu-Lift) is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging while simultaneously revitalizing the whole body. Acu-Lift is a holistic approach that will leave you looking younger and feeling reenergized.
Who would benefit from Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture? Anyone who is interested in restoring their skin to its youthful glow naturally may consider an Acu-Lift. The procedure is also suited for people concerned about deep wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, puffiness, large pores, dry skin and acne. Acu-Lift is about total inner health and therefore beauty, with the most visible results on the face.
Who administers Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture? A licensed acupuncturist should perform the treatment, with training in the specialization of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Not many acupuncturists are specially trained in this procedure, but at Cornerstone we have trained and certified professionals in this field.
What is the course of treatment? Twelve treatments are recommended. Usually results are visible around the seventh treatment, but the full 12-week session is recommended for lasting results. After the 12 treatments, a maintenance program including less frequent but continued Acu-Lift sessions, self-facial massage, herbs, nutritional supplements, diet and lifestyle counseling are recommended.
What are the effects? An Acu-Lift can erase 5-15 years from the face by improving muscle tone, increasing collagen production, firming skin, and filling out wrinkles. The procedure also enhances metabolism to reduce puffiness, eases tension to improve fine line,s and promotes overall improvement of complexion to bring out an innate healthy youthful glow.
Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture a new and trendy technique? For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. Even for those unfamiliar with the principles of Chinese Medicine, it is known that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better. Treating the underlying cause of why someone is aging is preferable to masking the outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction to continue within the body.
Does it really make a difference? Yes! The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% saw visible results after one treatment. Our experience suggests similar results with patients reporting improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, complexion and overall rejuvenation.
Why choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over a surgical face-lift? Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery. It is far less costly and safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. While Acu-Lift is not a replacement for surgery if one is trying to reshape a nose or chin, it will take years off of your face safely and naturally while improving your overall health.
Are there any contraindications? Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is contraindicated for some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, individuals who have a pacemaker or who have a problem with bleeding or bruising, or who currently suffer from migraine headaches. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture should not be done during pregnancy, during a bout with a cold or flu, during an allergic attack, or during an acute rash.
