So You're Interested in Facial Acupuncture...
Do you feel that the stresses of life seem written on your face more than the joys? Do you feel that you don’t recognize yourself in the mirror?
At Energy Matters, we believe that aging by itself is a beautiful, natural event. But aging combined with stress, environmental pollutants, health challenges, etc. can cause fine lines and wrinkles to be magnified, skin to appear less full, sagging, puffy, and dull with an uneven complexion.
Whether it is to retain or reclaim your skin health, our facial acupuncture appointments might be just the right prescription!
Read on to see the different treatments available to you.Or book now if you're ready!
Types of Facial Acupuncture
Everyone begins with the 90 minute Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation. First visit: your practitioner will conduct an in-depth consultation to target your concerns and desires. This is followed by your facial acupuncture treatment which will help you with:
- Better facial color
- Tightened pores
- Increased collagen production
- Brighter eyes
- Fine lines eliminated and larger wrinkles diminished
With the Deluxe treatment comes a therapeutic facial massage with products carefully chosen for their added Chinese herbal ingredients, non-toxicity, and high ethical standards.
The course of treatment may vary depending upon your constitution and chosen areas of focus. Typically, you will start with 6 to 12 weekly treatments. After that, a monthly or weekly maintenance schedule is recommended, depending on your response to the treatment and your goals.
When is Facelift Acupuncture right for you? When you have more targeted concerns that you wish to work on, such as sagging skin, jowls, deeper lines, etc. This is a 2-hour facial acupuncture treatment and is significantly more intensive than the Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation. However, you will enjoy the same benefits above with the addition of:
- Bags under the eyes reduced or eliminated
- Decreased tendency towards sagging and jowls
- Double chins reduced or eliminated
- Less eyelid droop
You may see differences after just one treatment and will usually have more dramatic and lasting effects after approximately 7 visits. For this work to be most effective, a course of 12 treatments is recommended over a period of 9 or 12 weeks.
After the initial course of treatments, monthly maintenance Facelift Acupuncture treatments are recommended to protect your investment with one or more Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation treatments in between to increase the results.
What to expect during
a facial acupuncture treatment?
The facial acupuncture treatment consists of small needles being inserted into specific facial points connected to organs and facial muscles. Although there can be a slight pinching sensation as the needles are inserted, many people find facial acupuncture to be calming and pleasant. Many patients feel deeply relaxed throughout the facial acupuncture session and report feeling energized afterwards.
This type of treatment also helps decrease stress levels, improve sleep quality and energy levels, address hormonal imbalances, and so much more! You will come out of your facial acupuncture appointment feeling relaxed, refreshed, and renewed.
If you're looking for a natural and relaxing way to treat facial skin issues such as sagging or wrinkles, facial acupuncture might just be right for you!
Why I Practice Facial Acupuncture
I’ve been doing Facial Acupuncture for as long as I’ve been practicing acupuncture for the past 15 years.
I am happy to offer a safe, natural, and effective way to enhance beauty-from-the-inside-out, as an alternative to the often harsh, toxic, and invasive mainstream medical treatments that promote unrealistic beauty standards and can actually cause harm.
Instead of making you look like a different person, Facial Acupuncture treatments help you look more like your truest, best, and most radiant self!
People often come to this treatment because they have gone through a period of stress and notice how it’s showing up on their faces. Facial Acupuncture treatments can bring vitality, ease, and glow back to their faces as well by reducing facial tension, increasing circulation, and enhancing collagen production.
Let’s face it, we often prioritize how we look over how we feel - so I’m happy to offer a treatment that benefits health and well-being even as we target beauty.
Facial acupuncture treatments are the most luxurious treatments you’ll get at our clinic. I do a complete health intake, treat your overall health and your face, and then pamper you with potent herbal masks and jade rolling or a deep tissue facial massage with high-quality essential oils.
It’s like seeing your doctor, esthetician, masseuse, and often your therapist, all in one visit. We may get bodywork, but almost never for our face! Our faces do a lot of physical and emotional work, non-stop, and it shows over time.
To me, personal beauty is the outward expression of your inner light. Join me on this journey of radiant beauty and health.
In Health and Radiance,
Prajna Paramita Choudhury
