Facial Acupuncture Therapy

Facial Acupuncture Therapy is a painless, non-surgical method that reduces signs of aging and improves your facial health and beauty from within. This Traditional Chinese Medicine technique has been used by practitioners for centuries and is the perfect alternative or complementary therapy to enhance your current beauty care routine and esthetic treatments.

According to Chinese Medicine theory, wrinkles, premature aging, skin discoloration or loss of muscle tone are the result of an imbalance of Qi. This Qi also known as energy, flows throughout the body within pathways called meridians to all of the bodies vital organs. Acupuncture is used to increase the energy flow carrying nourishment and vitality to every organ, tissue and cell of the body.

Our Acu Facial treatments are done by a Registered Acupuncturist. These are tailored rejuvenating treatments with a focus on several major areas of the patient’s concerns simultaneously. After a thorough analysis the session will address both the internal and external causes of premature aging. Each organ has a reaction area  on the face. When the internal factors are treated, the balance shows up externally on the face.

What to expect?

Tiny  hair thin acupuncture needles are inserted into specific locations on the face and body. The result is to relax and improve circulation to the targeted muscles and connective tissue between the skin and muscles. The needle insertion creates micro stimulation which accelerates the production of collagen, smooths the skin surface, increases circulation and diminishes deep wrinkles such as frown and laugh lines, caused by muscular contractions. As well, the skin’s underlying support is improved and fortified to reduce sagging and ensure your new skin is stronger and tighter.
