Acupuncture face rejuvenation history.
For more then 5000 thousand years Chinese have used acupuncture to improve overall health and obtain a more youthful appearance.
For thousand years Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. At least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD) Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for Empress and the Emperor's concubines. The Chinese discovered and utilized ways to change the blood and energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. Though Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger
What is the difference comparing to other acupuncture methods?
To treat any condition I use pulse guided acupuncture method prescribed in NanJing, book of difficult issues, more than 2000 years ago. This method requires pulse test before each sessioin to define exact points of acupuncture with maximum Qi or energy concentration for treatment. Use of points according to the pulse indications provides instant result, that patient may feel straight during and after the first treatment as improvement of facial muscular tone.
What is the Acupuncture Face Rejuvenation?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face, with results apparent after just few treatments. These treatments improve blood and lymph circulation of the face and body, bringing nutrients to the skin and removing metabolic toxins. Complex of facial rejuvenation acupuncture have been shown to increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished. Improved muscle tone and dermal contraction help firm jowls, and minimize double chins, while improved fluid metabolism reduces bags under eyes and lifts dropped eyelids. Other likely long lasting results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph on the face; tightening of the pores, brightening of the eyes, improvement of hormonal balance to help acne, reduction of stress evident in the face- bringing out your innate beauty and radiance.
The use of acupuncture in preventing and reducing wrinkles has attracted great attention in Japan, China and Europe. A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of 10 treatments. The effect included: the skin became more delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a rosier complexion and overall rejuvenation- not confined just to face.
How many treatments does it take to see a difference?
Some patients require immediate results. These cases call for intensive therapy that involves 2-3 acupuncture treatments each week for 6 to 6 weeks with facial massage and daily exercises. But normally, most people opt for the long term perspective, which require acupuncture treatments once a week for 3-4 months, then maintenance treatments once a month thereafter.
What can patients expect the results to be?
Many patients have reported a tightening sensation on their face after their treatments and over the course of their acupuncture sessions, visible changes have been observed on their face. These are besides the increased energy, clarity and happiness that often accompany the rejuvenation treatments.
Will the results be immediately noticeable like BOTOX injections?
