Cosmetic Bellmore acupuncture for facial rejuvenation works by balancing the functioning of the body and encouraging the flow of blood and energy to the face. From the objective constitution and lifestyle, the flow of energy in the body can become disrupted leading to a state of disharmony; these imbalances can manifest in the complexion and skin health. By supporting a healthy mind and body, you can improve the appearance of your face in a manner that you can both see and feel.
During the Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment for facial rejuvenation, thin sterile needles will be inserted into the face and body to adjust the flow of energy. Additionally, these facial needles are able to increase the tone of the facial muscles, pulling the skin tight and flattening wrinkles. The local insertion of needles into the superficial layers of the skin has been shown to increase collagen production in the local area providing the skin greater elasticity and a more youthful appearance. There is usually no pain and only a mild distending feeling at the sites of needles insertion during the treatment.
While the many individuals can notice immediate changes after the first treatment, Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments for facial renewal are commonly offered in treatment sets to increase the quality of the results. A typical protocol provides treatment two times per week for approximately 5 weeks, for 10 total treatments. Each treatment lasts approximately 45-60 minutes. While the results can last several years, monthly maintenance visits are recommended. Remember, Cosmetic Acupuncture is not a facelift, but a gradual improvement of your skin’s condition and facial muscle tone over the treatment course.
The acupuncturist may also include body acupuncture points during the treatment to support your facial complexion, as well as manage other health complaints. Acupuncture treatment can also help reduce stress, insomnia, hot flashes, anxiety, pain, and many other conditions during your sessions. Improving other aspects of your health will support the benefits of your facial rejuvenation.
Many practitioners also incorporate the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine during treatment. These products are primarily external facial creams and lotions containing herbs that help your skin. Constitutional conditions as well as other medical complaints may also benefit from the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine. Some practitioners offer additional protocols focusing on weight loss and the cosmetic enhancement of the abdomen.
