Advanced Constitutional Facial Renewal

A natural alternative to Botox. The insertion of thread-like needles creates a “micro-trauma” which allows Red and White blood cells, along with collagen and elastin to form. This treatment dates back to the Sang Dynasty (960-1279 AD), where it was used on Emperors concubines as an anti-aging technique. It was noted in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996, that 90 percent of 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture had remarkable results with the first treatment. The report said there were fewer wrinkles, greater elasticity and tone of facial muscles. Advantages include having a penetrating and powerful effect. It can add energy to the body, thereby increasing the yang and the circulation of qi and blood.
