Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
As we age many of us are increasingly concerned about our external appearance. Oftentimes the way we look, or perceive that we look, affects the way we feel. For this reason we are resorting to creams, injections, peels, and even surgery to help feel better about ourselves. Many patients will ask me advice on these methods. Although I truly feel that beauty is more than skin deep, I also recognize that helping patients feel better about their appearance will help mitigate other health problems. For this reason I offer a different approach to beauty treatments, one that helps people feel better inside and out.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is the use of acupuncture to treat both the external signs and internal causes of facial aging. It creates results similar to that of botox, filler injections, and laser treatments without the use of toxic or foreign substances.
In 1996 the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment.

How does it work?
Acupuncture can increase the synthesis of collagen and aids in its dispersal decreasing lines and wrinkles and firming up skin. It also increases the circulation of blood, lymph, and "qi" to the area helping to improve the complexion of the face. Metabolism can improve which helps to eliminate puffiness. Finally, since Acupuncture stimulates the body's ability to heal itself, patients commonly report an increased sense of well-being and a reduction in other symptoms as well.
