Non-Surgical Facelift- Cosmetic Acupuncture

       The effectiveness of Traditional Chinese Medicine to a wrinkle-free face is due to the increased circulation to the face when receiving acupuncture. Bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the cells nourishes and regenerates them.  TCM also focuses on good nutrition and a healthy digestive system.  With nutritious foods and a digestive system that is strong and functioning properly, the body is able to breakdown the nutrients effectively and provide the energy necessary to lift the muscles of the face.  In addition, the acupuncture needles activate acetylecholine, a neurotransmitter that causes muscle contraction, resulting in a tighter, smoother skin. Wrinkles will soften, giving you a relaxed, vibrant glow. 

       After the removal of needles, the Acutron Energy Light Rejuvenation machine is used.  This machine emits both microcurrents and light simultaneously to help facial rejuvenation. The microcurrents are gentle pulsed electrical currents that are low frequency range for therapeutic treatments.  They help reduce wrinkles and regenerate healthy skin tissue.  It does this because a microcurrent light is also a frequency that communicates with tissue cells. With regards to reducing facial wrinkles the color green is used. However, depending on the individual and hers/his facial needs, a different light may be used.

       The combination of acupuncture and the Acutron machine truly assists in softening and smoothening the skin giving it a more youthful, radiant face.

The initial treatment for facelift acupuncture includes an evaluation and nutritional counseling that will give guidance in promoting and maintaining a youthful skin. The protocol for this non-surgical facelift is a series of ten treatments.  The first treatment is 90 minutes.  Treatments thereafter are one hour.
