People who are seeking an alternative to surgery to remove facial wrinkles are turning to an ancient Chinese treatment: facial acupuncture, or acupuncture face-lift.
The principles of the acupuncture face-lift techniques are based on the placement of sterile, hair-thin needles into selected points to increase natural collagen production, to tighten tone and regain the firmness and natural colour of the skin.
Acupuncture face-lift uses acupuncture, tui na (massage), micro-current stimulation, and herbs. Manual lymph drainage is done to rid the body of harmful toxins that affect the face and upper body.
The popularity of acupuncture as a facial treatment is on the rise but it is important to follow a course of treatment with scheduled booster treatments for best and lasting results.
