Facial rejuvenation acupuncture

acupuncture Barcelona

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a safe, virtually painless, and non-surgical method for reducing the signs of the aging process, with the added benefit of improving general health and well being at the same time. This is therefore fundamentally different from other cosmetic treatments, because acupuncture treats holistically - not only treating the signs of aging on your face, but also providing a rejuvenation of your general health.

A 1996 study published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture of 300 cases of facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatments highlighted that 90% had marked beneficial results with only one course of treatment. Writing in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Barrett (2005) commented that the effects of a facial rejuvenation treatment with acupuncture can be expected to last up to five years; he listed the following treatment results to be expected:

  • Elimination of some wrinkles and a decrease in length and depth of other wrinkles
  • Decrease of facial oedema
  • Increase of facial muscle tone
  • Livelier appearance of the eyes
  • Decrease of sagging around the eyes, cheeks, chin, and neck
  • Improved skin texture, including tighter pores
  • Decrease of acne

Each treatment involves the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles into specific areas of the face and body. On your first visit, we discuss your overall health history. We will evaluate what changes you would like to see in your face and skin, and then you receive an acupuncture treatment tailored to your needs. The needles are inserted while you are relaxing and lying down on a massage table. Once the needles are in, you rest for 20-30 minutes. In general, the treatments are very relaxing and take about 1 ½ hours. A course of facial rejuvenation acupuncture generally involves 10- 15 sessions.
