Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Decreases Signs of Aging by Treating Whole Body
Botox is no longer the “go to” anti-aging treatment for some of the A-list celebrities. You may have heard about Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian signing up for Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture, a technique that can be traced back thousands of years – at least as early as the Sung Dynasty in China – that is performed by a licensed acupuncturist who places needles in specific points of the face to reduce signs of aging.
Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture isn’t exclusive to Hollywood. The demand for a safer, more holistic alternative to Botox, chemical fillers and cosmetic surgery to address anti-aging concerns is increasing worldwide.
Virginia Doran, M.Ac., L.Ac., LMT, world-renowned expert, and a veteran for more than 20 years in the field of Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture, has trained about 2,500 licensed acupuncturists in her proprietary technique.
Doran, who is teaching a three-day workshop on Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture at the Won Institute on October 12-14, said that people are turning to a more natural way of living and looking.
“People are more inclined to talk about getting Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture because there is no stigma behind it like Botox,” said Doran. “They are also feeling good and getting healthier.”
Facial Rejuvenation is more than a cosmetic procedure. Practitioners know how to specifically treat the signs of aging by addressing the underlying cause in the body.
Based on the principles of Oriental Medicine, Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin needles in particular areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, trunk and legs along channels or meridians of energy. Specific points are chosen to manipulate the movement of energy in the body according to the individual’s needs
Some of the many benefits of this treatment include:
- Improved muscle tone and dermal contraction
- Increased facial circulation
- Elimination and reduction of bags under the eyes
- Decrease in sagging and jowls
- Elimination of puffiness
A visible appearance in the face typically happens after one treatment, but the results become even more noticeable after the 6th or 7th session. Generally 12 treatments are recommended for patients.
“With Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture, people are walking away with not only radiant skin, but a healthier digestive system, better circulation, a better immune system and hormonal balance – something you can’t get from Botox or surgery,” said Doran. “We are really treating the whole body – the skin improvement or rejuvenation is just the extra icing on the cake.”
