How acupuncture helps
A facial rejuvenation treatment using Traditional Chinese Medicine can improve muscle tone of the face and neck while addressing underlying imbalances that have contributed to the aging process.
According to TCM, wrinkles begin internally from a constitutional imbalance and fundamental weakness of Qi. Qi is the energy that circulates throughout the body within a series of pathways to different organs. The body's natural energy flow is what provides nourishment, support and energy to the every cell, tissue, muscle and organ.
Acupuncture tightens pores, improves muscle tone and dermal contraction, while enhancing and increasing the elasticity of the skin. It can reduce signs of aging by strengthening and stimulating the body's energy circulation, especially those to the face. Through a succession of treatments, you will look and feel more energetic, vibrant and healthy.
Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture and TCM is virtually painless, and a non-surgical method to reduce the signs of aging.
Before using drugs or surgery to improve appearance, consider acupuncture. It is an effective, natural, safe, drug free and painless alternative. It helps your whole body to look and feel younger.

For centuries, many women in China used jade rollers daily for anti-aging and beautiful skin. Regular rolling stimulates lymphatic drainage and by improving facial circulation, increases oxygen and nutrient supply, thereby enhancing the radiance and natural glow.
The cooling effect of jade will help to prevent the skin tone, tighten pores and relieves sinus pain.
Gua Sha is another tool that can be used in facial rejuvenation to improve blood circulation n the face and increase cell growth.
Light gua sha strokes can be used to extract toxic waste, remove blood stagnation, and promote normal circulation and metabolic processes of the body

While cosmetic facial acupuncture is a somewhat new phenomena in the West, there are nevertheless centuries-old records of it being used in the service of improving appearance.
Generally, 10 to 12 treatments are recommended for one complete course of treatment, with each treatment lasting 60 - 90 minutes. Treatments can be spread over 4 to 1 weeks for a total of 10 to 12 sessions for optimum results, with a day of rest in between multiple session.
Some patients notice a difference after just one treatment, but most should notice long-lasting and more visible results by the sixth or seventh session.
Maintenance session are recommended, but the need varies from person to person. A full treatment series of 12, as well as slight dietary and lifestyle adjustments, results can last 3-4 years.
