Acupuncture has been done for hundreds of years on the body to treat many ailments; and due to its effectiveness and demand, it has recently been applied to faces of women of all ages. It is known to be “an organic route to skin firming” and creates more youthful and natural-looking results.
The Planning Phase of Zahra’s Facial Acupuncture Procedure
According to the traditional Chinese Medicine, the state of our face reflects the state of our overall health; therefore it is important for us to take care of our face.
At Zahra Acupuncture Clinic, a typical facial acupuncture session begins with an explanation of how the procedure is performed along with its benefits. In addition, we listen to the concerns of our patients and take them into consideration before starting the procedure. Next, we assess the pulse and tongue to identify the overall health level and conditions of the individual. Based on the health assessment, we will then determine which points of the body we would proceed with facial acupuncture to gain the most effective results. These body points are selected to balance and relax the body.
Facial Acupuncture Procedure for Better Blood Circulation & Energy Balancing
The first step of the actual procedure consists of applying a topical numbing cream on the individual’s face. Our patients would then be placed in a cozy room with soothing music in the background to help them with relaxation. After 30 minutes, we then clean and disinfect the skin before inserting the needles. At Zahra’s clinic, our needles are fine, disposable, silver-handled needles that absorb more electromagnetic fields and are proved to be more effective in promoting the Qi and blood circulation in the face, which also helps with balancing energy. In addition to working solely on the regular facial acupuncture points, we perform extra needling on specific fine lines and wrinkles based on the individual’s facial structure. Furthermore, we would select some acupuncture points on the head to improve and accentuate the face-lifting function. These points on the skull help calm the mind and distress the body. These needles are retained on the skin for 20-30 minutes before removing them.
The Benefits of Facial Acupuncture at Zahra Acupuncture Clinic
Facial acupuncture is a safe, pain-free, and drug- free procedure that helps rejuvenate the skin by naturally improving the collagen production in the dermis layer of the skin. This procedure will also help diminish the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles on individuals’ faces. After the first treatment, results can be seen through the quality of the individual’s skin; it will appear brighter and become healthier. We recommend our patients to complete 5 to 10 sessions, once a week for the best results and then coming in every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain the overall quality of the skin. The earlier individuals undergo facial acupuncture in your life, the more beneficial it is for as your skin ages over time. It helps slow the aging process and brings a natural glow to the face. However, it is never too late to boost the appearance and the health of your skin. Some of the other benefits of facial acupuncture are that it helps to tighten the skin pores, boosts skin hydration, improves headaches and migraines, improves acne, helps with jaw pain and TMJ, calms the nerves, and relieves anxiety and stress.
