The Good, the bad, and the ugly...
"Acupuncture Face-lifts" with facial massage and microcurrent stimulation you will look younger as collagen gradually fills in the wrinkles and your facial muscle tone improves without surgery. Yes, without surgery! This isnt surgery, it doesnt remove skin nor leave scars, nor leave you bruised.
The good is that this treatment is painless for most people (yes all chromosome combinations) and find that it is extremely relaxing.
Facial Acupuncture does even more...It increases blood and lymph flow in the face, giving you a more youthful appearance, improving acne breakouts and decreasing stress.
The bad is that to gain the best results you will need to commit to a series of treatments that are generally between 45min and 1.25 hours long. This is not covered by insurance.
The ugly- no the low-down, what to expect:
In these treatments, you will receive 30 minutes of gentle relaxing facial lymph massage, and up to 30 min. of facial microcurrent. Microcurrent stimulation uses wand electrodes to further increase blood and lymph flow in the face. The frequency of visits is twice a week for the initial 2 weeks and at the beginning of every treatment we see how you are responding. These visits, as a Grand Opening Special, are $95 each or a prepaid package of 4 visits at $360 is recommended and available.
How do you prepare for these treatments?
Thanks for asking...
You should drink close to the designated amount of water for the couple of days before the treatment close to 50 percent of of your body weight in ounces (a 150 pound individual should drink approximately 75 ounces, just over 2 liters). Additionally, eating foods that are rich in collagen and minerals would be helpful.
You should wear appropriate comfortable clothing, there will be points that are stimulated in the hands, arms, feet and legs, in addition to the facial wrinkles.
