Acupuncture Facelift

An Acupuncture Facelift is a good alternative for women (or men) who don't want the side effects associated with a surgical facelift. After a series of 12 treatments (more could be required depending on your lifestyle) the skin becomes more delicate and fair, and there are fewer wrinkles.

The treatments also result in an erasing of fine lines and a reduction of deeper lines, less sagginess, a lifting of droopy eyelids, reduction of puffy pockets under the eyes/dark circles and a clearing or reduction of age spots plus there is an overall rejuvenation that is not confined to your face. Moving energy through the body with extremely fine facial needles not only in the face but also the feet, legs, arms, head and ears, stimulates collagen production and brings blood to the face.

Micro-Current Facelift (no-needle, no-surgery)

A Micro-Current Facelift is a non needle acupuncture and meridian balancing system that uses therapeutic grade essential oils. Safe and small therapeutic does augment the body's own healing ability with no discomfort to the patient. Facilitates healing of low grade inflammation, increases health of collagen and elastin fibers. A muscular re-education of the face, the Micro-current therapy uses a tiny electrical current administered through two Q tipped probes attached to the micro-current device which feels like a gentle tingle.

Micro-current stimulation works on the spindle cells and Golgi tendon organs, reflexes found within each muscle, which control the length and tone of the muscle. As the muscles regain tone and tighten up, the skin they are attached to also tighten up. Micro-current also increases circulation to the facial skin, improving the texture and elasticity of the skin. A course of 12 treatments are recommended (more could be required depending on your lifestyle).
