Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, sometimes referred to as an “acupuncture facelift,” is a wonderful timeless beauty technique used by the Chinese since the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD). In Chinese, it is called “Me Rong Zhen”. Cosmetic acupuncture was performed on the Empress and Emperor’s concubines. Today, it is an effective, non-surgical, painless way to lessen the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. According to Chinese medicine, it improves circulation and stimulates the body’s natural anti-aging powers.
The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported in a recent study of 300 people, 270 perceived a marked decrease of facial wrinkles after just one treatment. Their skin felt firmer to the touch and elasticity was improved.
How does it work?
Natural Chinese herbal creams are applied in a soothing herbal facial mask. In advanced facial acupuncture, synergistic points are used on the arms, legs and body to further strengthen the body’s energy, thereby enhancing beauty from the inside out. With this complete holistic treatment, we can achieve a balance between improving exterior facial beauty and strengthening the internal energies that influence beauty.
Treatments improve muscle tone and dermal contraction, increase collagen production, tightens pores, and increases local circulation of blood and lymph around the face. It can be used to reduce a double chin and sagging jowls help to decrease inflammation, puffy or droopy eyelids.
At Perfect Ohm, we use a combination of mini-facials, full facials, micro-needles, and acupoint injections using homeopathic and/or marine plasma, to help facilitate local circulation, tightness, and reduce fine lines.
