What is Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture?
Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture (FRA) uses a combination of very fine needles in the body and face to restore the vitality of the skin.
Benefits of FRA include: improved muscle tone and skin elasticity, increased collagen production, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved hormonal balance and hormonal based skin conditions, reduced under-eye bags or dark circles, improved circulation and skin color, vitality, and radiance.
What to expect: An FRA session begins with a discussion about your skin concerns. Body points will be placed first to treat any underlying health issues that are affecting your health, skin, and face. Next, fine needles are placed in areas of the scalp and face to help lift the neck, chin, cheeks, and eyebrows. Lastly, very tiny needles are placed directly into selected wrinkles and fine lines to stimulate collagen. This helps to reduce the appearance of the wrinkles and fine lines. Once all the needles are in place, you will rest for about 25 minutes and then all needles are removed. Lastly a facial massage is performed to further improve circulation and to move lymph in the face and neck.
It is recommended that you complete weekly or biweekly treatments for a course of 12 treatments. Most clients see an improvement in their skin in the first few treatments and start to see lasting changes by about 6-7 treatments. The course of 12 treatments gives most clients lasting results. Further treatments to maintain your results are recommended monthly or at least every 3-4 months.
Cost is $180/treatment.
Contra-indications: Acute infections such as cold/flu or any outbreak of herpes zoster or herpes simplex, bleeding disorder or excessive bruising, hypertension, seizures, migraines, pregnancy, sunburn, or any serious health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, AIDS, hepatitis, or diabetes.
Caution: facial cosmetic surgery, botox, or fillers all require a waiting period determined by the procedure or product used.
Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture Testimonials
I had read several on-line news articles about facial rejuvenation acupuncture, but didn’t know anyone personally who had ever done it before and going the botox route was not an option for me – so I called Michelle and asked for a consultation. We discussed my “facial” concerns – my forehead wrinkles (I’m very expressive when I speak and my forehead muscles were starting to “stay in place” and I could never just relax my forehead ;-(), my sagging eyelids and crows feet, my “worry” furrows in between my eyebrows, the beginnings of a neck ‘waddle” (AH!), my overall lack of luster to my face, my occasional acne break-outs, and my dry skin. Michelle listened to all my concerns as well as conducted a thorough medical history on me. After 12 treatments I noticed a remarkable improvement in all my areas of concern! Since I didn’t want to “lose it”, I promised myself I would keep it up – so I faithfully see Michelle every month for a “tune-up”. I am so glad I do as people are always surprised when I tell them I’m 48! 😉 And I tell them my secret too – FRA! 😉
In the several months that I have been a patient of Michelle’s the pain level in my back has dropped noticeably. I have low back, between the shoulder blade and neck issues. Her treatment has decreased all my back pain! I was so encouraged by this I decided to try the facial rejuvenation process that Michelle offers. It has worked! The wrinkles on my face are not nearly as deep as they used to be! The deepest crevasse (you know the one, the furrow between the eyebrows) continues to improve. I, personally, prefer the more natural treatment of acupuncture to a shot of botulinum toxin. Thank you Michelle!
