Acupuncture facial treatment in Auckland city

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (F.R.A) also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation, or an Acupuncture Face lift or Facelift, is one of the most effective anti aging skin care programs. In addition to the many and varied health promoting effects throughout the body that regular Acupuncture bestows, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture aims to correct the signs of aging by both local treatment and by treating the underlying causes of why an individual is specifically manifesting the aging process the way they are.

Beauty cannot be obtained simply by slapping on colors and textures to the skin, because the skin reflects and reacts to your entire being –physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. To keep you skin looking beautiful, wrinkle free, youthful and smooth on the outside, you must work on the inside of your body as well. Specific areas of the face indicate internal health, because the face is connected to your internal organs, and as Qi (vital energy) moves and circulates, it strengthens the functioning of organs connected to that area. Beautiful skin begins with good Chi, and blood circulation. Qi is the invisible envelope that revitalizes/lifts your energy. You can lift your face by lifting Qi. This can been done with acupuncture, as well as good herbal medicine.

Acupuncture for facial beauty is a wonderful, holistic, alternative approach to fighting the aging process: by increasing the flow of energy, blood and lymph circulation improves the faces natural, healthy colour, and increases collage6n production, diminishes wrinkles and eliminates fine lines. Acupuncture can stimulate the formation of body fluids nourishes the skin and encourages it to be moister, softer, smoother, and more lustrous. Metabolism is greatly improved through these treatments, profoundly effect the regulation of hormones in the body, conditions like acne and overly dry skin can be quite improved. It's an excellent alternative approach without surgery and injection. Unique and painless, acupuncture face lifting is far less expensive, more natural, non-invasive and safer than plastic surgery or botox injection(s), and has no side effects, toxicity, inflammation, or recovery time but can achieve similar results. Acupuncture can eliminate stress and bring out the innate strength, vitality and health. In addition to enhancing skin appearance, most people are pleased to find that their sinus problems, headaches, toothache, TMJ, PMS and menopause have either disappeared or their symptoms are distinctly improved! You will not only look younger but also most certainly feel younger.

Acupuncture Facial Renewal is a full body treatment that is tailor-made to your unique constitution. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It may erase as many as five to 15 years from the appearance. The effects of Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation can last for years with regularly scheduled maintenance treatments.

Chinese herbs work excellently in replenishing Yin energy (body fluid), which is extremely beneficial in the prevention and/or improvement of wrinkles resulting from menopause or cigarette smoking.

Q1: Why choose Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture over a surgical face-lift?

While not a replacement for surgery, Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation is an excellent alternative treatment to lift face. It is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and is safe, virtually painless, has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration, there is no trauma from Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. While Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture cannot reshape one's nose or chin, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off one's face–safely and naturally while improving overall health.

Q2: Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture a new and trendy technique?

Hardly. For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside and acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor's concubines. The Chinese discovered and utilized ways to change the energy flow within the body to initiate the healing process for rejuvenation. According to a famous Chinese axiom, "Where qi goes, blood flows." Even for those unfamiliar with the principles of Chinese Medicine, it is known that increased circulation helps the body to look and feel better. Common sense would tell us that treating the underlying cause of why someone is aging is preferable to masking the outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction to continue within the body.

Q3: Does acupuncture really make a difference?

Acupuncture has been used for almost 5,000 years to treat a wide range of conditions. Having proven itself with literally billions of people, acupuncture has survived the test of time. The use of Acupuncture in Cosmetology–especially in preventing and reducing wrinkles–has already attracted great attention in Japan, Hong Kong, and Sweden. The effectiveness of Acupuncture is due to its direct manipulation of the body's energy system–balancing, removing blockages or adding enery when necessary. A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming delicate and fair, improvement of the elasticity of facial muscles and leveling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation–not confined to the face.

Q4: Who would benefit from Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Anyone concerned with looking and feeling young and slowing down the aging process. The decision to begin treatment may be professionally or personally inspired or a combination of both. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is suitable for those with deep wrinkles, fine lines, bags under the eyes, sagging, puffiness, drooping eyelids, double chin, large pores, dry skin or acne. Different methods are emphasized and specific points stimulated according to how an individual is aging. A person with excess puffiness, for example, would require a different treatment than someone with dry skin. The whole person is treated and evaluated on the body-mind continuum--the foundation of Holistic Medicine.

Q5: What is the course of treatment?

We recommends 6-10 initial treatments taken twice a week. Subsequent visits will be once a week for 6 weeks. Each treatment takes an hour. Further treatment for maintenance care may be advised once a month to enhance the results for many years. Positive changes are usually noticeable during the first 6-8 treatments. Treatment plans may be personalized for each patient and/or combined with Chinese herbs depending on environmental and health factors that impact the skin. We also teaches you facial exercises, dietary and lifestyle awareness in order to encourage to take responsibility for your own health and well-being. We believe that working together achieves the most successful optimum results!

Q6: How much does it cost?

Each session $120 NZD and takes 60 minutes.

Q7: Are there any contraindications?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is contraindicated for some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, individuals who have a problem with bleeding or bruising, or some skin disorders.

Q8: Who administers Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

The treatment should be performed by a licensed acupuncturist, with training in the specialization of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Not many acupuncturists are specially trained in facial rejuvenation acupuncture. Optimally, one should seek out a practitioner trained by an expert in this field.

Q9: Does it hurt?

The needles we used for F.R.A are single use and disposable, they are the best brand in the world from Japan and also much finer than those used in general acupuncture.
