Acupuncture Facelift

Facial Rejuvenation through Acupuncture

Acupuncture  is a system of medicine and health care that originated in China  about 2000 BC. It is based on the science that bio energy they call chi , flows in systematic meridian systems coursing throughout our body. More than a treatment for pain and many other ailments it can be used to prevent wrinkles and firm up the facial and  neck areas.  It’s most dramatic evidence is in regaining function in a paralyzed face as in Bell’s Palsy or MSA, where the firmness and movement is restored within 12 treatments. So if acupuncture can lift a paralyzed face, it can do that as well for people who are aging and in search for a way to keep their looks without surgery.

  • 6 visits every other week and once a month to maintain.
  • Each treatment takes 45 minutes .
