Who has Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture?
Anyone concerned with looking and feeling young and slowing down the aging process. Different methods are emphasised and specific points stimulated according to how an individual is aging. For example, person with excess puffiness would require a different treatment than someone with dry skin.
How safe is it?
Acupuncture is a safe treatment for all. While not a replacement for surgery, Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture is an excellent alterative. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling discoloration, there is no trauma from Facial Revitalisation, which takes years off one's face safely and naturally while improving overall health.
How does it work?
For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. At least as early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD) Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor's concubines. The Chinese discovered and utilised ways to change the energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. Though Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalisation process designed to help the whole body look and feel young.
What does it involve?
Based on the principles of Oriental Medicine, Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk, and legs along channels or meridians of energy called Qi. Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of Qi in the body according to the individual's needs. Many meridians either begin or end on the face while some have internal branches that go to the face. Therefore, treatments specifically affect the face while simultaneously treating the underlying actors that contribute to the ageing process.
How will you respond to treatment?
Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five to ten years.
How frequent will your treatment be?
Normally consists of 12 treatments. Initially treatments are once or twice a week. Each treatment takes between one and a half and two and a half hours. The effects become most noticeable and last on or after the seventh treatment, though many people notice improvement much sooner.
