More Information from Dr. Robin about Facial Rejuvenation
The Ancient art of cosmetic acupuncture known as
dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). It has been used as beauty treatment to bring added vitality to the face and to decrease the appearance of aging. Because of its valued results we see today, this ancient treatment has been brought into the mainstream with a common procedure called
Micro Derm Needling
, similar to facial acupuncture but with a roller holding several fine needles. Facial acupuncture, by comparison, uses fewer strategically hand placed needles that bring rejuvenating vital energy to the face as well as stimulating collagen and elastin production. This is a virtually painless, safe and effective natural approach to delay signs of aging and enhance natural radiance.
How does it work
Acupuncture works on an external level as well as an internal level, healing from within in multiple ways. Treatments increase the vital flow of essence and circulation decreasing inflammation and tension, clearing redness, and overall instilling relaxation and a sense of well-being. Locally treatments have been shown to stimulate molecular activity to initiate a type of cellular reconstruction activating the body’s own production of collagen and elastin. This increased blood flow and lymphatic flow help at the molecular level to aid in increased nutrient absorption to enhance the efficacy of topical treatments.
The benefits and results are varied and not intended to be as dramatic as more invasive procedures but subtler and increase with the number of treatments. As with any self-care routine you should notice an increased radiance right away. Other benefits that facial treatments have been shown to aid in:
· Decreased fine lines and wrinkles
· Vibrant tighter and smoother skin
· A more lustrous appearance
· Better tone and decreased discoloration
· Decreased sagging and drooping
· Increased moisture
· Decreased appearance of scars
· Reduced stress and anxiety
· Better sleep
What is a normal facial session?
20 ultra-fine facial needles are used. All needles are single use, very safe and virtually pain free. The needles stay in for approximately 25 minutes. A few points are also placed in the body to increase the fortitude of the constitution. There is very rarely a spot of bleeding from the points after needle removal which stops quickly, and even more rare to have bruising. As mentioned above, with any self-care routine results increase with the number of treatments. If you decide that you would like to see the added value of multiple treatments it is recommended for best results that you have a course of about ten sessions, twice a week. Monthly maintenance is recommended after that.
Nutritional support for collagen production
In addition to acupuncture treatments I also work with nutrition counseling. I believe that rejuvenation and restoration requires getting the right nutrients. Some of the top Collagen boosters are:
· Organic Bone Broth
· Organic hair skin and nail formula
· Vitamin C rich foods and foods high in antioxidants such as berries and green tea
· Sulfur rich foods such as onions, garlic and eggs
· Herbs and supplements that build essence
