With the recent buzz around some celebrities and models using Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA) aka Cosmetic Acupuncture aka Acu Facelift, more people are seeking out this anti-aging treatment. Although it is a treatment that many have only recently started hearing about, acupuncture, including facial rejuvenation acupuncture, has been used for thousands of years.
FRA is a safe, painless and effective treatment for rejuvenating the face as well as the whole body from the inside out, and a great alternative for those who would like to avoid Botox or fillers. FRA is beneficial for those ages 20s-30s to begin preventing signs of aging. For those in their 40s, 50s and beyond, FRA can eliminate fine lines, reduce deeper wrinkles, lift sagging and more (see list below). FRA can also help clear up skin issues such as acne and rosacea.
Acupuncture that focuses on the face is not separate from that which addresses the well-being of the body. Since all energy meridians that run from the face run into the body, and since most skin issues begin from an internal imbalance, facial rejuvenation acupuncture contributes to benefitting the entire system, making FRA a holistic treatment from the inside out!
FRA treatment assists the flow of lymph and blood in the face, and when a needle is inserted, the body considers it a microtrauma, which stimulates collagen and elastin production, giving the face its natural lift and glow. The needling also helps bring the muscles back to their ‘normal’ state. Tight muscles that contribute to wrinkles are relaxed during the treatment, and weak muscles that contribute to sagging are tightened.
BENEFITS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
eliminating fine lines & diminishing larger wrinkles,
reducing double chin & drooping eyelids,
improving collagen production & muscle tone,
promoting blood & lymph circulation,
helping gyn & menopausal issues,
benefitting eyes, ear, brain,
promoting total health and well-being…and positive side effects, because the meridians that run to the face run throughout the entire body! Plus, patients often comment on how good the FRA feels as they experience the flow of energy and blood in the face, with a very deep sense of relaxation.
