Facial Rejuvenation Series A Natural Alternative to Botox
Have you ever noticed how beautiful the skin is of women in China? In addition to genetics, perhaps this is because facial rejuvenation originated in China over 2000 years ago. Facial rejuvenation has enabled many women to keep their skin beautiful by reducing fine lines, increasing elasticity and collagen in the their skin, firming up their facial muscles, and improving the quality of their skin through acupuncture and herbal therapies. It has become a safe and effective alternative to the use of therapies such as botox and resatylane.
This delicate use of acupuncture needles is arranged in a sequence that develops collagen and stimulates rejuvenation processes. While your skin is reacting to the subtle stimulation, the treatment is also adjusting energy throughout your entire body. Each treatment is 75 minutes long and is part of a twelve -treatment series. Some people may only need ten treatments.
The initial treatment includes a full traditional Chinese medical evaluation to ascertain the patient’s personal disharmonies. Next, body points are used to address those patterns unique to the patient. Once the body points are in, the face is prepared with a gentle gua sha or facial cupping. Some treatments will include the use of essential oils applied to appropriate meridian points, to enhance therapeutic outcomes. The needles are then gently inserted into the face and left for 25 mins. The use of the celluma led light therapy can be used while the needles are in to boost the patients outcome. Once the treatment is completed, the needles are removed the patient receives a hydration serum as well as specialized rolling either with jade, rose quartz or agate. Each stone resonates a different vibration depending what the patient needs that day. We finish off with a sunscreen if in the day or a night creme if in the evening.
Once the needles are in place the patient has the option to include the Celluma led light therapy to assist in the microcirculation of the tissue and enhanced collagen production. When the treatment is completed the needles are removed and if applicable antiaging serums are added to the face accompanied by either a jade rolling or facial gua sha treatment. When the treatment is completed the addition of moisturizers and/or facial sunscreen will be added. Changes may be seen as soon as the first treatment is completed, but each succeeding treatment builds on the last.
Changes may be seen as soon as the first treatment is completed, but each succeeding treatment builds on the last. The program is safe, effective and brings with it none of the great expense, adverse effects, or toxicity of more invasive approaches that involve drugs or surgery.
How Does Facial Rejuvenation Work?
According to the latest research in dermatology and Dr. Howard Murad, a professor of dermatology at UCLA and Vogue magazines proclaimed “One of America’s top dermatologists”, the problem is free radicals. Aging skin, wrinkles, sagging, enlarged pores, puffiness, as well as thin and dry skin are due to the damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals are destructive molecules. They destroy the integrity of other molecules, and they start by attacking and destroying the walls of your skin cells. So if you imagine your cells as being like a water balloon, free radicals are like a knife that pokes holes into it. The balloon will then leak like a sieve, and your cells become deflated and dehydrated because all the vital fluid and nutrients have leaked out.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture helps restore the integrity of your skin cells by stimulating the nervous, circulatory and hormonal systems to boost collagen and elastin production.
Having a seasoned professional provide the procedure is of utmost importance. At Greenetea Acupuncture, Lisa Greene R.Ac Ryt has studied under three different masters of Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture in order to provide the best technique for her patients.

Are there side effects?
As in any therapy there can be some side effects they include
- Better digestion
- Improved sleep
- Reduced headaches
- Fewer hot flashes
- Increased libido
Although rare, there is a chance of bruising which is why its recommended a few weeks before a big event such as weddings, graduations and anniversaries
Facial Rejuvenation is based on a series of appointments with the best results done twice a week for 5 to 6 weeks. It’s best to schedule all appointments at the initial visit in order to get your desired time slot.
The first visit is $130.00 and lasts 90 minutes, subsequent visits are $120.00 and are 60 to 75 minutes. When you add the Celluma anti-aging LED lights the add-on is only $25.00.
This is a savings of $15.00 from a regular Celluma treatment.
