1.) Reason #1 to get cosmetic acupuncture and facial cupping is because It Works. A recent client of mine who underwent 10 sessions (recommended for the best results) started to see changes even after the first treatment. She noticed much less puffiness and noticeable lifting of her features. By the end, a reduction in wrinkles, especially in the forehead region, was noted.
2.) Reason #2 to get facial rejuvenation acupuncture is because It's Safe. Cosmetic procedures such as botox and surgery have much greater risks than cosmetic acupuncture. It's true that cosmetic acupuncture offers less dramatic results than a surgical face lift, however, improvements are still very good with facial rejuvenation acupuncture. A big bonus in my book is that there are very little, if any, side effects with acupuncture treatment. The biggest side effect is a small bruise on the skin, but this is still very rare. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a great natural alternative to surgery or botox.
3.) Reason #3 to get facial rejuvenation acupuncture is that it Makes Your Skin Glow from the inside out. How does facial acupuncture and cupping accomplish this? Well, it helps to stimulate lymph drainage from your face and head. Not only does this help with sinus issues (bonus!), but it helps to improve nourishment to the skin as well as reduce puffiness under the eyes and along the jawline.
4.) Reason #4 to get cupping and cosmetic acupuncture is that it Reduces Wrinkles. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture helps the stimulation of collagen and elastin. Tiny facial acupuncture needles create very small "micro-traumas" to areas of your face. As the body naturally heals these micro-traumas, collagen and elastin fill in wrinkles, lines and sunken areas. This cellular turnover makes your face look smooth and supple in all of the right places.
5.) Reason #5 to get cosmetic acupuncture is that it Reduces Stress and it Improves Health. One of the tenants of cosmetic acupuncture is that we improve beauty from the inside out. Not only are needles focused on your face, they are also placed on the body for stress relief and treatment of any health concerns. If you are fatigued, not sleeping well, experiencing hormonal imbalances, having poor digestion or feeling anxious this can all impact the quality of your skin. With cosmetic acupuncture we work to get you as healthy as possible on the inside so that you can shine on the outside.
Does it hurt? Are there side effects?
Not really, and especially not as much as botox or surgery. You might experience a slight pinch that dissipates very quickly. There are very few side effects with facial rejuvenation acupuncture, the most common being a bruise, which is still very rare.
How many sessions will I need?
It is recommended to have 10 sessions over the course of 5 weeks for best results. After that, maintenance treatments every 2-3 months are recommended to retain your results and refresh your appearance.
