FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture was originally developed for patients with paralyzed muscles from Bell’s palsy or stroke. The result of treatment was so cosmetically pronounced overtime that it was transformed into a program for anti-aging and beauty.

There are two aspects to the benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. One is the benefit of ‘local’ treatment and one is the benefit of ‘root’ treatment. Local treatment directly addresses facial aging symptoms while root treatment treats the underlying cause of facial symptoms such as hormonal balance, digestive problems or emotional stress. Both local and root treatments are performed in each session to provide the best and the longest lasting benefits.

PDO Thread Embedding Acupuncture
 

Thread lift therapy originated from oriental acupuncture therapy to control and improve tissue stimulation and muscle contraction. The threads are made of a material called Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO has over a decade-long safety track record in surgery and wound closure. PDO has been used for about 10 years in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery. PDO gained FDA approved in 2004 The PDO threads can very effectively strengthen the contour of the face, reduce roundness, lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, neck and also produce an excellent eyebrow lift.

 

The PDO Thread Lift works by redefining the facial contours and inducing collagen production creating a lifting effect which lasts for up to 2 – 3 years. The threads will form an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face due to collagen synthesis. The lifting effect is at its peak 6 months later when collagen has formed around the threads.

Acupoint catgut-embedding for Wight Loss
 

Obesity is a major health problem worldwide, affecting more than 500 million adults with an additional 1.5 billion adults classified as overweight. Acupuncture has been recognized as adjunctive therapy for obesity, and recent evidence suggests its potential to reduce the inflammatory response in adipose tissue, a condition believed to be responsible for obesity-related health problems.

 

Catgut embedding therapy has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of many conditions, such as perimenopausal syndrome, chronic urticaria, depressive neurosis, refractory insomnia, obesity, sciatica, etc.

 

Catgut embedding therapy has advantages over body acupuncture because it uses fewer acupoints, can be performed less frequently and has a prolonged stimulation effect. Extensive research has been done to examine the effects of catgut embedding acupuncture on obesity with favorable results.

 

 

The average result after 6-week treatment:

 

  • The weight reduction: 3.64LB

 

  • The waist circumference reduction: 1.9 inches
