Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Theory much of one's beauty comes from the balance of systems within one's self. As the aging process we all experience progresses it is common for the flow of Qi (Chi), Blood and Vitality within your body to become imbalanced. When the balance is restored you will feel and look more radiant. On a physiological level acupuncture has been shown to increase the circulation of blood and life energy throughout the body. Increased blood flow can help us to maintain healthier skin and muscle tone by sending nourishment, moisture and "lifting energy" to the skin and muscles. (Unlike an injection these painless punctures stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system which work to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells. This process helps nourish the skin from the inside out and activates the production of collagen which improves elasticity, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of Facial Renewal Treatment
Much like regular acupuncture, this treatment has been practiced for thousands of years. Unlike the short term, unnatural and potentially dangerous cosmetic treatments you may have heard about or even tried, however, Facial Renewal Acupuncture is safe, long term and completely natural. In addition to the visible benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture, patients will often experience improvement in other areas. Acupuncture can reduce anxiety and stress as well as improve sleep quality and provide a greater sense of energy and well-being.

FACIAL RENEWAL TREATMENTS:
-MICRONEEDLING - 120min
Our specialized Microneedling treatment uses a device covered with tiny, shallow needles to cause a ‘micro-trauma’. This prompts the skin to heal itself naturally by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and replacing the surface skin cells revealing the younger, glowing skin underneath. Treatment also utilizes BABOR products to facilitate the collagen production and healing process.
80min - Initial, 50min - Repeat
Facial renewal Acupuncture creates a positive injury. This micro trauma is good for the skin. It causes a “plumping” of the tissues and fat cells due to greater levels of collagen and elastin brought on by tissue stimulation and subsequent histamine release which increases fibroblast collagen synthesis. In addition, Qi and blood flow increases nutrients and oxygen to the cells to balance facial color. It is a non-invasive way to lift and balance the muscles around the face, eyes, and neck. Recommended in conjunction with
-FACIAL SOUNDSCAPES ™
60 min - initial, repeat 40 min
Sound travels through water four times faster than any other medium down to the cellular level. This creates a perfect environment for the body to respond while stimulating collagen and elastin. Elastin is a protein in the connective tissue that is elastic and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting.

We use vibrations from precision-calibrated tuning forks that access and travel through the body’s meridian and chakra systems. It uses the same philosophies as acupuncture, but is non-invasive because there are no needles involved. Each fork is tuned to the orbital frequency of a specific celestial body. The vibrating forks are placed on acupuncture points and/or directly on the pain source to treat a wide variety of physical, emotional/psychological, and psycho-spiritual issues.
