Signature Rejuvenating Facial Treatment

 

What if you could naturally, without pain or surgery, turn back the clock 5 to 10 years on how you look and how you feel?  Well, you're in luck, you can! 

Our Signature Rejuvenating Facial Treatment does just that! We combine numerous pain free and holistic therapies that get great results by themselves but together offer an unparalleled holistic facial treatment.  This treatment can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve circulation and the complexion, move stagnant lymph, support sagging facial muscles, improve skin texture and tonicity, and increase collagen production... all while improving your overall health.  We work from the inside out to get the best results.  We use topical treatments, of course, but we also address the underlying and internal root causes that can contribute to how things manifest on the face as we age, such as wrinkles, sagging, skin discoloration, redness, inflammation, or lack luster complexions.

This treatment can offer excellent results for all skin types and most ages.  It can be a preventative treatment for people in their mid to late 30's to early 40's or as a therapeutic treatment with visible results for people in their 40's, 50's and early 60's.  Results can still be achieved for older skin, but it takes a bit more time.  Since every person is different we are happy to offer a complementary consultation to make sure we create the best result driven treatment plan for each person.     

This is a customized and luxurious therapeutic treatment, it is not a traditional facial.  However, in addition to the numerous therapeutic modalities already in the treatment, we also include an herbal steam, acupoint stimulation massage and the use of organic facial products after the session, so you will feel pampered. 

Our Signature Rejuvenating Facial Treatment includes most or all of the following modalities, depending on your personal needs and the amount of time selected for the treatment.


 Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years and is still used today to help maintain youth and vitality of the face and body.  It is much more than a simple cosmetic treatment. It is a relaxing and painless therapy that can help the whole body look and feel rejuvenated.  We use the smallest needles possible with an extremely gentle touch so there is absolutely NO pain with this treatment. 

Acupuncture works to improve the body’s energy flow which nourishes and invigorates the body from within.  It encourages improvement of the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the skin and increases collagen production, thus reducing inflammation and enhancing skin tone while decreasing fine lines and wrinkles.

In Chinese Medicine it is said that “the interior will be reflected on the exterior” so the state of the body’s organ health is often viewed on the skin and face.   The face can be positively affected with direct treatment while simultaneously supporting the underlying factors that may be contributing to the aging process in the first place. The body as a whole must be addressed to ensure the best possible results for any cosmetic improvements to be seen on the face. This is why points on the body are also targeted for treatment when treating the face.  

Cosmetic Acupuncture can:

  •        Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  •        Reduce puffiness under the eyes and around the face
  •        Improve sagging jowls and eyelids
  •        Reduce dark circles
  •        Improve facial muscle tone and elasticity
  •        Improve circulation to the face 
  •        Reduce age spots and redness
  •        Reduce stress in the face and body
  •        Improve overall health and energy

 Microcurrent Treatment

Microcurrent Treatment

Microcurrent is a non-invasive therapy that offers a safe, all natural option for facial rejuvenation. Microcurrent supplies gentle, painless, low frequency electrical impulses to specifically selected muscles and areas on the face to firm and tighten the muscles and skin. This gentle current mimics the body's own electrical impulses, which help to stimulate and increase the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) by up to 500%.  This soothing microcurrent treatment can safely restore the skin’s natural balance for a more youthful appearance.  It is used to visibly diminish fine lines or wrinkles on the face, neck and decolletage, smooth and rejuvenate the skin, reeducate the muscles of the face and neck, and help maintain healthy radiant skin. The treatment is sub-sensory so there is absolutely no pain and most people fall asleep during the session. 

Microcurrent treatments can..

  •          Improve muscle tone & skin texture
  •          Reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  •          Stimulate blood circulation
  •          Promote production of collagen and elastin
  •          Tonify, tighten and sculpt the face
  •          Reduce puffiness
  •          Improve muscle tone and firm skin
  •          Improve skin tone & complexion

 Facial Cupping

Facial Cupping

Facial cupping is a gentle and relaxing treatment that has been used in TCM for centuries.  It is very different from body cupping and does not leave any marks on the skin whatsoever.  It utilizes a gentle suction action that helps pull fresh nutrients into and through the tissues, increasing blood flow to the area.  This soothing treatment is used on the face and neck to move stagnant lymph fluid, increase circulation, nourish tissues, reduce inflammation and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  When there is more blood flow, more nutrients are in the tissue and the cells are able to work better. 

Other benefits include:

  •          Reduces puffiness
  •          Helps to drain sinuses
  •          Helps to lift, sculpt and define facial contours
  •          Moves facial lymph
  •          Relaxes muscles and softens fine lines and wrinkles

We use glass facial cups for our treatments in a variety of sizes depending on the area of the face on which we are working. 


 Facial Gua Sha

Facial Gua Sha

Facial Gua Sha has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for centuries.  It can help to counter signs of aging caused by the stress of modern living and improve the appearance of the skin on the face.  Gua sha can help move stagnant lymph and increase blood circulation which will bring needed nutrients back to the area to support circulation, nutrition, and detoxification.  Gua sha is also used for cross fiber stimulation for deeper wrinkles and sun spots.  This is a pain fee and relaxing treatment.

Other benefits include:

  • Helps with dark circles under the eyes
  • Tones and firms the skin
  • Reduces wrinkles 
  • Reduces puffiness
  • Helps with head, neck and jaw pain
  • A great treatment that can be done at home between sessions  

We use jade gua sha boards which offer an additional anti-inflammatory benefit since the natural properity of jade remains cool to the touch.  


  Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular acupuncture is the stimulation of acupuncture points on the external ear to treat different health conditions in other parts of the body.  All of the organs are represented on the ear and can be accessed, treated, and supported by stimulating these ear point with needles or “ear seeds”.

We use ear seeds after a facial treatment.  They are placed on the appropriate acupuncture points with an adhesive backing and will stay in place for 3 to 4 days before falling off naturally.  They help by offering constant point stimulation to the organ systems that were worked on during the facial acupuncture treatment to strengthen and solidify the benefits of the treatment.  They are completely painless and are very small so are not usually seen by others.
