Looking and feeling amazing: What you want to know about facial rejuvenation acupuncture

We’re so excited that we now have Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture at Third Space Wellness. It’s a natural way to look and feel amazing. Here, our in-house expert, Enrique Gochicoa, L.Ac. tells all:

Q: What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

A: Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation is the ultimate anti-aging treatment that balances our internal systems while simultaneously boosting the health and appearance of the skin. This could be your best partner in your journey to ” age gracefully” and it is never to early to start taking care of your skin.

Tiny needles are used to stimulate the skin and the muscles of the face and neck to recover your natural appearance.  Needles are also used on the body to balance the functions of the internal organs resolving underlying causes of other problems that are reflected on your skin.

Q: What can I expect to see after a few treatments?

A: Some of the results obtained after several treatments are:

  • Improved muscle tone of the skin
  • Increased the production of Collagen and Elastin in the face creating a younger look
  • Elimination of fine lines and reduction of the appearance of deep wrinkles
  • Lifting of eye lids and checks and reduction of dark circles under the eyes
  • Increased blood circulation improving facial tone
  • Skin becomes thicker, stronger, more radiant and tightening of pores
  • Reduction of parenthesis lines of the face
  • Reduction of acne problems.
  • Tightened saggy skin of neck

Q: Can I have 1 treatment to try it out, or do I need to commit to multiple treatments?

A: The only way to realize if this therapy is right for you is having an initial consultation and treatment. A large percent of patients notice results after only one treatment and results build-up with more treatments.

Facial rejuvenation is not for everybody since it involves the use of more needles than a regular acupuncture treatment. Most patients that receive acupuncture regularly are perfect candidates. Other patients are attracted to this therapy because of the appearance benefits and receive additional benefits as well (overall wellbeing).

The only way to know if this is right for you is by scheduling your first treatment.

Q: How often do I need to come in for treatment?

A: At the beginning once a week or every other week is recommended in order to build-up results. After 10 treatments we suggest maintenance treatments according to individual needs and goals (typically every three months with the changes of the four seasons.

Q: Can this help with my neck appearance like sagging and neck wrinkles?

A: Yes the skin of your neck will tighten in addition to other benefits.

Q: Can I go out in public afterward or will my face be red & puffy?

A: You can resume your life intermediately after a treatment. Your face usually looks more radiant and wrinkles may be less noticeable. Make-up is not recommended during treatment and can be applied intermediately after therapy according to your needs.

Q: How long do results last?

A: It is different for each person and maintenance treatments help you to preserve results.

Q: Are there any negative side effects from treatment?

A: Depending of the health of the skin and muscle tone of the patients, there is a slight possibility of a bruise or discomfort on the skin that typically lasts no more that a week. The use of arnica gel is recommended to improve healing.

Q: Are there any bonus benefits/side effects from treatment?

A: No side effects, only side benefits.

Many patients report sleeping better, having more energy and better digestion, feeling more calm and peaceful and having more mental clarity.

Q: Do you have any skincare tips to keep my face looking young in general?

A: Protect your skin from the sun, pollution and smoke. Reduce stress in you life and follow good eating habits in your diet by including fresh vegetables and fruits, remember that they are essential food for your skin.

Remember to use moistener cream with sun blocker everyday even during the winter.

Daily use of the AcuLift Dermal Roller accelerates results of the Facial Rejuvenation Treatments. This is something that you can do yourself at home.
