  • Improve facial muscle tone

  • Eliminate or reduce dark circles and puffy eyes

  • Improve circulation to your face

In a nutshell, it’s a time-tested way to help you look and feel your best. 

Who is this program for? Who is this program not for?

If you are looking for a holistic approach to beauty and health that includes diet, nutrition, stress management and exercises based on your specific constitution along with a powerful way of bringing vitality and renewal to your face and complexion, then Facial Renewal Acupuncture Plus could be a good fit for you. 

Please don't worry about being overwhelmed by the program. Your program will be tailored to your goals, expectations and needs, and we will go at a pace that suits you. 

If you're after a quick fix in the manner of Botox or cosmetic surgery, then Facial Renewal Acupuncture Plus is probably not the best fit for you. 

What happens when I come in for my first appointment?

You'll fill in a detailed health history and questionnaire and go through a full Chinese medicine diagnosis, allowing me to tailor the program to your body's condition. Everything flows from this initial diagnosis - the acupuncture points chosen, as well as the exercise, diet, relaxation techniques and supplement advice that you'll receive. You'll receive your first Facial Renewal Acupuncture treatment and I'll email you the details of your personalized program. 

What does the Plus refer to?

With Facial Renewal Acupuncture Plus, I don't just address your face, but will provide you with a complete program that addresses beauty and health from many angles. 

If you just want the acupuncture, that's completely ok. If you want more, you will have the tools to address your health from multiple angles. Pick and choose what you'd like to address from the recommendations that I give you.

Your program will include:

  • Instruction on performing gua sha - a gentle self-massage technique that will maximize the benefits of Facial Renewal Acupuncture Plus

  • A Chinese medicine diagnosis

  • Specific dietary recommendations based on your body type and diagnosis

  • Screening for food sensitivities and food allergies

  • A nutrient screening to identify any nutrient deficiencies

  • An analysis of what nutrients are being depleted by any medications you're taking

  • Chinese medical exercises based on your body type and diagnosis

  • Mindfulness and meditation suggestions

In short, this is a complete program for beauty, health and happiness on all levels. 

Who benefits from facial acupuncture?

 

There are three main groups of people who can benefit (yes, men can come too)

 

  1. People in their 20’s and 30’s to prevent the early onset of wrinkles

  2. People in their 40’s and 50’s to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and maintain a youthful glow

  3. People in their 60’s and 70’s for an overall rejuvenating facial effect while softening deep wrinkles and restoring the glow that’s been lost over time

 

Does it hurt?

 

Acupuncture, when done by a fully-trained practitioner, is not painful. I only use the highest quality Japanese and Korean needles. You will barely feel them.

 

Are there any side effects?

 

There are no side effects. You will come out of your session feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. There is no downtime, no swelling or puffiness after treatment and no drugs to deal with. While I will ask you to take it easy directly after a treatment, there are no restrictions on activity or redness or marks after treatment. 

 

What are the advantages compared to other treatment methods?

 

Long-term health and wellbeing are side benefits of facial acupuncture. Being a truly holistic treatment that treats your body and mind as well as face, you don’t have to deal with any of the potential side effects of other methods such as Botox. Also, facial acupuncture - 

 

  • Is non-surgical and much less invasive

  • Has no side effects or risks associated with surgery

  • Has no recovery time

  • Is less expensive

  • Is all natural

  • Is truly holistic as it improves your overall health

 

What is a course of treatment?

 

An initial course of treatment is generally 12 sessions.

 

Are there scientific studies on cosmetic acupuncture, and what have they shown?

 

A meta analysis of 7 studies stated - 

 

“Two randomized controlled trials and 5 single-armed prospective trials were included. All 7 studies reported positive results for at least one of the following: total effective rate, squares and counts of wrinkles, facial blood circulation, facial size reduction and improvement of skin condition, anti-aging by a patient-oriented self-assessment of facial elasticity scale, and water and oil content of facial skin.
