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 70 minutes long and is part of a twelve -treatment series. Some people may only need ten treatments.

Combining the benefits of facial acupuncture, gua sha, and celluma led light treatment

Your seventy minute spa experience will start with carefully placed needles in your body to aid in the success of your facial treatment and calm the body and mind.

With a clean face we begin by applying a high-quality essential oil tailored to your skin type around the sides of your neck , face, and chest. This helps to nourish and lubricate the skin making your treatment enjoyable.

The needles are inserted after any remaining oil has been cleaned off following the cupping or gua sha treatment. For some people, intradermal (intradermal) needles may be required to treat fine lines and wrinkles. The Celluma LED light therapy will be applied once the needles are in place and you’re feeling at ease.

When the treatment is complete, the needles are removed. If you choose, you may add an additional treatment of a facial mask or serum (this will be an added 10 min).

We follow this with a moisturizer for your skin type and apply it using a soothing rose quartz roller. The roller is slightly cooled in order to help with any residual redness. It relaxes the muscles and calms the skin. All our skin care products are from the exceptional Rodan and Fields skincare line. Some of the products are available for purchase in the clinic.

To complete your experience, you will enjoy a facial and scalp massage, leaving you feeling relaxed and renewed.

These treatments focus on decreasing fine lines and wrinkles, healing acne, lightening the skin tone, stimulating collagen. Moreover, the benefits of acupuncture will help your overall body energy. It provides numerous health benefits and an all-around anti aging experience.

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.
