It was noted in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996, that 90% of 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture had remarkable results. The report said there were fewer wrinkles, greater elasticity and tone of the facial muscles.

Facial Revitilization Acupuncture helps to improve muscle tone, dermal contraction and increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Bags and sagging around the eyes,face, and neck can also be reduced. Acupuncture helps to improve metabolism which may result in reduced puffiness. The increased circulation of blood, lymph and Qi to the face improve the overall colour and quality of the complexion. At the same time, dermatological conditions that affect the face may also be treated. Each treatment is specific to each persons´ unique set of imbalances.
Course of Treatment
The average course of treatment is usually 12 treatments, once weekly, with a monthly maintenance program thereafter. The progress of facial rejuvenation usually becomes more noticeable after the sixth treatment. Results may vary, depending on one´s imbalances and lifestyle prior to and during treatment. A more natural lifestyle will enhance the results.
