Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation-The Acupuncture Face-lift

Is this Facial Rejuvenation right for me?

::     Perhaps you have had or have considered a surgical procedure, botox, collagen injections, chemical or laser treatments, but want to avoid the cost or risk associated these approaches. This alternative has very little risk and is done at a fraction of the cost.

::     Facial Rejuvenation cannot completely replace surgery but the results can be substantial and natural looking.

::     The treatments are great for treating skin problems such as acne, poor skin tone, lack of color, general sagging and wrinkles.

::     The treatments are aimed at treating these problems from within which often results in an improvement of general well being both physically and spiritually.

::     This treatment is also a great way to prevent the usual wear and tear of age, sun damage, smoking etc. by stimulating the meridians in the face, which help to maintain higher collagen and elastin levels in the face, therefore preventing wrinkles.

::     It will revitalize your skin, make it feel more toned and within a few treatments your friends will want to know your secret!

What can I expect?

::     The treatments are a natural way of working with the body’s energy and patients discover more benefits than their face looking brighter and younger which is a great alternative to chemicals and invasive treatments.

::     Usually results are seen after the first treatment, with continued improvement over the next few hours or the next day.

::     Skin tone, complexion, color and vitality of the skin should improve notably with each subsequent session.

::     The treatments often include other body points that help to balance a person’s system so they usually feel a sense of well being.
