An integrative approach to younger looking skin Facial rejuvenation with cosmetic acupuncture is a holistic, natural, safe and effective approach to younger looking skin.
By using a comprehensive approach, which blends the ancient principles and techniques of Chinese medicine with today’s innovations in professional skin care, your skin can be more vibrant and youthful as a direct result of better health. This comprehensive approach of combining treatments of acupuncture and professional facials with natural and Ayurvedic skin care products creates a unique and truly balanced approach to younger looking skin.
This integrative approach, unique to Envision Personalized Health, works by promoting overall wellness while reducing the signs of aging. Aging starts in the body as different body processes (digestion, circulation, hormone depletion, etc) start to slow down and change. This reflects on the face as lack of vibrancy in the complexion and expresses as fine lines, deep wrinkles, bags under the eyes, dry and saggy skin, to name a few issues. Acupuncture addresses the aging processes while Esthetics provides the topical support of newly formed skin cell.
Cosmetic Acupuncture with professional Esthetics is an investment not only in your skin, but in your health.
Facial rejuvenation works by inserting fine needles that are specifically located at acupuncture points on the face, neck and body along energy channels called meridians. The treatment includes a comprehensive approach by asking a series of questions, taking tongue and pulse diagnosis to aid in assisting a specific pattern for the individual’s constitution. Therefore needles are used to increase the healing effect for the body’s imbalances while benefiting the face. The goal is to assist the body to become healthier by treating the underlying imbalances that contribute to aging or problem area. In results not only will your physical appearance improve so will your overall health.
The benefits of facial rejuvenation with acupuncture, has a large spectrum of possibilities depending of your constitution. Some of the possible changes to expect is the appearance of your skin will have an increase of color. There is a smoothing of the skin, because the dermal layer contracts resulting in tightening of the skin and toning of facial muscles. There will be a decrease in fine lines and deep wrinkles. Increase of elastin and collagen production and a reduction of puffiness around and under the eyes. There is an increase of circulation of blood and lymph flow due to stimulation of needles, which results in moisturizing and softening of skin. There is a decrease in blemishes and an improving of hormonal balance (pms, menopause and other hormonal related issue) to assist with acne, breakouts and dry skin. Other issued that can be helped is sinus related issues, Belly’s Palsy, tooth pain, TMJ, digestive issues, emotional imbalances, stress, and many other issues. Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture is an overall comprehensive holistic approach for beauty inside and out.
How many treatments:
The number of treatments will vary depending on each individual’s constitution. After the first consultation and treatment, the practitioner will evaluate the patient response and recommend a treatment plan. We recommend a minimum series of 6 treatments over a 4-week period with a maximum of 12 treatments over a 8-week period. The treatment plan will vary depending on constitution, age, stress level and lifestyle habits.
After the first treatment, there is increased of color to the complexion, decrease of fine lines and a toning of muscles. After a few treatments the patient looks more rested and deep wrinkles start to lessen. A significant change in appearance can be seen following the 4th and 6th treatments. There is significant change in clarity of the face, a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, smoother and softer skin and less puffiness around the eyes. After the treatments plan the patient should look and feel years younger. The results can vary depending on the individual’s lifestyle choices (sleep, smoking, alcohol intake, exercising diet, sun etc). Therefore having good lifestyle choices will help sustain the treatments for longer period of time. To maintain the treatments it is recommended to have a monthly maintenance treatments to keep the effects.

Healthy, unbroken skin is the first defense against disease. Professional care for the face and hands - the areas most exposed to the environment - is a critical step to good health. Professional treatments of these areas provide a barrier to illness, a purposeful immunity, and a radiantly glow.
Deep cleansing of the skin by a professional rids the skin of dirt, debris and environmental factors to allow your skin to maintain a healthy balance and enhance its ability to fight off disease and aging. It also enables the skin to better utilize the products applied for nourishment, protection and exfoliation.
Techniques, professional equipment, and skincare products increase the permeability of the beneficial ingredients thus penetrating deeper into the skin for optimal results.
Professional facial massage dilates the vascular system, encouraging it to bring nutrients and moisture to the deeper layers of the skin and to remove waste and toxins produced during normal cell metabolism. This stimulation also brings a healthy glow to the skin that only a professional facial massage can produce.
Professional skin care products have a more pure and higher percentage of performance ingredients than over the counter products. Over the counter products need to be benign enough for use by the “masses" making them less than ideally suited for individual your skin needs. Professional products are recommended by licensed professionals, not by a sales clerk who often are untrained. In the long run, you will save money by not buying products that are not effective for your skin type.
Professional extractions are performed when needed should only be done by a professional. The bacteria found in acne and breakouts can be spread, and scarring can occur, by improper extractions or picking at the site of the breakout. A professional is trained to perform this service when needed in the least invasive, safe, effective manner. The skin is prepped and extractions are done with optimal results and minimal discomfort. Extractions are an optional service. For clients who prefer not to have extractions alternate methods can be used to spot treat these areas.
Professional facial treatments can be relaxing and rejuvenating, a much needed prescription for our hectic daily and stress filled lives, especially since stress plays a role in many skin care and other physical disorders. By integrating treatments with your Acupuncturist and Esthetician, they will work together to as a team to create a Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation treatment protocol specifically designed for you.
