Cosmetic or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA) offers an effective non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. Unlike Botox, which carries a large number of possible side effects, FRA is a totally natural and holistic anti-ageing treatment that aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
FRA treatment concentrates on points and muscles of the face in order to improve elasticity of your skin and general overall appearance.
The needling increases Qi (energy) and blood flow to the face which helps the production of collagen and elastin. Since this system is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture points on the body are also used to complete the balancing of energy. This results in an overall rejuvenating effect on the body, mind and spirit. Diet, lifestyle and skin care are also evaluated and addressed.
The protocol begins with a consultation to determine your overall health. We will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.
• Improvement in the fine lines of the face and a diminishing effect on deeper wrinkles
• Moisturized, softer skin and a more even skin tone
• Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in the beginning of jowls
• Reduction or elimination of rosacea and acne
• Reduction of puffiness under the eyes
• Improvement in facial color
General health benefits include improvement for:
• Depression and mild anxiety
• Digestive symptoms
• Hormonal balance
• Energy levels
• Hot flashes
Over a course of treatments you can not only expect to be looking better, but you should also start to feel more at balance and happy in yourself.
