Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a comprehensive, effective treatment for improving muscle tone, reducing puffiness, and minimizing fine lines. Acupuncture — the insertion of tiny needles in specific points along your face — also reduces sagging skin and increases blood flow to your face and oxygenates the cells to prevent and combat the signs of aging.
Your body reacts to these tiny punctures by going into “repair mode” and through stimulation of your lymphatic and circulatory systems. Together, these systems attempt to heal your “wounds” from the tiny needles by sending oxygen and other nutrients to nourish your skin from within. The needles also stimulate collagen production to minimize lines and increase elasticity.
As a result of these changes, you may notice a more even skin tone and a brighter outward appearance.
You may experience numerous benefits after a facial rejuvenation acupuncture session, including:
Your facial rejuvenation acupuncture session includes a pulse and tongue assessment, plus a highly personalized facial rejuvenation treatment. During your 60-minute treatment session, you relax comfortably as Dr. Barnett inserts tiny 40-70 tiny, painless acupuncture needles in specific areas on your face. She finishes your treatment with a gentle Tuina massage involving specific acupuncture pressure points.
Dr. Barnett typically recommends 12 facial rejuvenation acupuncture sessions a standard course of treatment. Each one lasts about an hour, depending on your age and your specific treatment needs, so she adjusts your sessions accordingly, so you get the maximum benefit.*
If you’re ready to take a natural approach to facial rejuvenation, consider the many benefits of facial rejuvenation acupuncture instead of more invasive techniques or artificial solutions. Call Dr. Barnett’s office or schedule a complimentary consultation using the online booking system.
