Modern and ancient anti aging together!
Did you know that you can have non-surgical Facial Rejuvenation with two extremely effective treatments used in combination?
I am the Constitutional Facial renewal Acupuncture specialist for Canada, trained under Mary Elizabeth Wakefield for the past 12 years. In my practice, I am continuously looking for painless recommendations to use in combination with Facial Acupuncture to maximize its effectiveness.
Working at pHresh Spa for the past 6 years, I have seen the owners and estheticians constantly looking for the newest, most effective treatments for Facial and Body Rejuvenation. When they brought in the Venus Freeze, I was extremely intrigued to see how it would work for patients alongside Facial Acupuncture.
After being educated on how the Venus Freeze works, I was very proud to see it within the spa. It is an extremely safe, non-invasive treatment for tightening and lifting the face, as well as reducing cellulite and contouring your body.
If you have read other blogs of mine, I am constantly worried about the rejuvenation industry and how other treatments are not necessarily healthy for our bodies short or long-term. With the Venus Freeze, I am happy to say this is not the case. I am proud to recommend it to patients starting Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture or those who are just on a maintenance program with me.
I find what the two treatments do together is very quickly increase the local circulation. In Chinese Medicine, we would call this strengthening the local Qi. The more circulation and energy we can bring to the cells, the more collagen and elastin production we see locally.
When I work on a patient who has had Venus Freeze, I notice when I insert a point locally the needle automatically responds. Patients who are coming in for a facial lift notice a dramatic difference directly after the session, whereas with Facial Acupuncture alone that isn’t always the case for every patient (depending on muscle tensions on the face i.e. TMJ).
If you are looking for a healthy aging treatment plan that is safe longterm, the combination of these two treatments is a must!
Below we can see in more detail how both treatments work, along with a few videos.
What is Constitutional Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?
Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body. Fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced and bags around neck and eyes firmed.
How does Constitutional Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture work?
Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies, or Qi. Since muscle groups are addressed as well the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial color.

How does the Venus Freeze work?
Venus Freeze works by incorporating Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields into one device and delivering it safely and effectively to the patient.
Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, non surgical liposuction, and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. That restoring response causes new collagen to form, and the production of new elastin fibres. The active collagen in the skin contracts, causing skin to look and feel firmer and the elastin fibers unravel making the skin appear more elastic.
Benefits of Venus Freeze:Non Invasive Facelift Treatments
With Venus Freeze, Non-Invasive Facelifts are painless and comfortable. Non-Invasive Facelifts can produce visible improvements in skin tightening, elasticity, wrinkle reduction, and improved blood circulation.
The Venus Freeze machine combines Radio Frequency (RF) and Magnetic Pulses into a technology called (MP)², which uses a dense energy matrix that safely penetrates multiple layers of skin. The blood flow in the treated area is improved, enhancing the skin’s tone and texture. Vitamins, minerals, and oxygen are carried to the cells, while toxins and waste materials are removed.
New blood vessels are also formed in the treatment areas, leading to dermal fibroblasts being created. Fibroblasts then increase the number of collagen and elastin fibers, and the new collagen and elastin fibers result in tighter skin and wrinkle reduction.
