What Your Treatment Would Look Like

Your treatment will begin with gentle facial cupping to distribute blood and nutrients throughout the face and drain stagnant lymphatic fluids from the face and down the neck.

Next, extra-fine intradermal acupuncture needles (3mm) focus repair to the weakened lines (pesky wrinkles!). Regular-length needles are then selected to stimulate muscular tone in the face. Your facial rejuvenation treatment will be 75-90 minutes. That said, every practitioner’s methods vary. Some opt to combine intradermal and regular needles and some opt to use regular needles only for both tone and fine lines.

Acupuncture points will then be selected to balance and boost the body and relax the mind. Similar to your regular acupuncture sessions. In fact, if we’ve been treating that sore knee or those nagging headaches in your regular sessions we are still able to address these symptoms during your facial session! 

Traditionally, facial acupuncture is meant to be a treatment series to repeat at your convenience every 2-5 years. It is recommended to have 8-10 treatments starting weekly for 4 weeks then bi-weekly to monthly for the remaining. However, some choose to use this treatment on an as-needed basis. It’s up to you! Quarterly maintenance is recommended once the initial series is complete.  All individuals are unique, and as a result, outcomes do vary. This is not intended as an extreme intervention to skincare but rather as a gentle lift and boost of the face.
