Spring is here and after all those months of dry heat, not enough fresh air, winter colds and holiday parties, the wear and tear can really show up on your face. It’s time to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.
There are many options available these days for erase the sign of aging from the face; lasers, peels, injections and of course surgery. For those of us who would rather chose a more gentle and natural approach to revitalizing the skin and rejuvenating our appearance without the risk of scars, infection, disfiguration, toxic build-up of chemicals or downtime, Facial Acupuncture is a gentle, effective, and safe way to combat the signs of aging.
Why Choose Facial Acupuncture Treatment?
Acupuncture offers many benefits to those who want to revitalize the look and feel of their skin. It builds collagen, tones muscles, improves circulation, and stimulates blood flow with no risk of scars, infections, or rashes. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is much more than a cosmetic procedure. Acupuncture changes the energy flow within the body and initiates the process for constitutional rejuvenation. If energy is not flowing freely throughout your body then your organs, muscles and lymphatic system cannot function properly, which can contribute to puffiness, bags and premature aging.
Each treatment is 1.5 hours long and is part of a 12-20 treatment series. Maintenance sessions are scheduled according to the individual’s needs after the initial series. You may see changes as soon as the first treatment is completed, but each succeeding treatment builds on the last.
Some of the Benefits you may see from Facial Acupuncture Treatment:

Does Facial Acupuncture really work?
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that in 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. Documented effects included: improvement of the facial muscles, leveling of wrinkles, and other benefits–not confined to face.
“Since I started facial rejuvenation, the lines on my forehead have become noticeably smoother. The color and tone of my skin has improved. But best of all, the brown spots on my face, which I have had for years, are fading and breaking up! I am not sure which I am happiest about–the improved texture of my skin or the lighter brown spots!”- Anita
“I have been going to Michelle for several months to fight the signs of aging. Michelle is absolutely by far the best! People keep asking me how I stay so young! I have tried several acupuncturists before but have never experienced such remarkable, extremely obvious results before Michelle. When people ask my age they can’t believe I’m over 50. My skin looks and feels great, wrinkles are diminished, and my energy level is unbelievable. Michelle’s treatment area is very comfortable, professional and relaxing; I highly recommend Michelle for facial rejuvenation and stress reduction! Thanks Michelle!! You’re the best…………. Jenny Age 57
