At Qi Flow Acupuncture, two types of facial rejuvenation treatments are offered: Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation and Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation.
Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation treatments help improve facial health and appearance. A series of these facial acupuncture treatments increases blood and qi circulation to the face, encourages an increase in collagen and elastin production, improves facial firmness and contour, reduces puffiness, diminishes wrinkles and reduces jaw tension. In addition to the improvement of facial appearance and health, there may also be benefits to general physical and emotional health such as a reduction in insomnia, depression, mild anxiety, hot flashes and digestive symptoms. Many people will also experience an increase in energy, and pleasant feelings of relaxation and well-being.
Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation treatments are so relaxing that most people fall asleep. There is no facial acupuncture involved. All that is felt is the gentle sensation of moist cotton Q-tips gliding along the surface of the skin, and a very subtle tingling from microcurrent stimulation. Microcurrent stimulation increases blood and qi circulation to the face, which in turn encourages collagen production and the regeneration of healthy skin tissue. Mild microcurrent stimulation applied to facial muscles increases muscle tone, reduces puffiness, improves facial color, softens skin, and relaxes tense jaw muscles. There may also be a reduction in sinus congestion, a decrease in stress, and an enhancement in mood. Some people have even reported a decrease in night time snoring after receiving a series of these treatments.
During both acupuncture facial rejuvenation treatments and microcurrent facial rejuvenation treatments, acupuncture is applied to key points on the arms and legs to improve overall health. As one’s health improves, it will be reflected by a glowing, healthy facial complexion.
Both facial rejuvenation treatments are an approximately 1 ¼ hour relaxing experience. While some improvement may be seen in one session, a series of 5, 10 or 20 sessions will be recommended, depending on the condition of the skin. Best results are achieved by weekly sessions for the first 5 to 10 weeks. After that, a monthly session will maintain the results obtained by the initial series. Single treatments can also be used to freshen facial appearance in preparation for special social events.
