Acupuncture Face Lift
Acupuncture facelift is specifically designed to improve facial appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, toning sagging face muscles, and rejuvenating dull, lifeless, or aging skin. Visible results can be seen after 2-3 treatments. Long lasting changes generally occur with a series of 7-10 sessions. Cosmetic acupuncture leaves you looking and feeling your best.
How does it work?
On the face, the acupuncturist will insert 40 to 70 tiny and painless needles. As the needles puncture the skin, they create wounds within its threshold, which are called positive microtraumas. When your body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode. These punctures stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing skin from the inside out. This helps even out your complexion and promotes your skin’s glow. The positive microtraumas also stimulate the production of collagen. This helps improve elasticity, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
