Facial Rejuvenation

What is facial rejuvenation acupuncture?

The face is unique in that it is the only part of the body where skin is attached directly to the muscle. This gives us the ability to move the skin for variety of facial expressions but also causes wrinkles when facial muscles become tight. As we age, the physical structure of the face shifts due to the loss of bone, fat, and collagen.


Facial rejuvenation is a cosmetic style of acupuncture that relaxes and lifts the muscles of the face for a more youthful appearance. Micro-traumas to the skin made with fine acupuncture needles stimulate the production of collagen and elastin which improves skin texture and tone. Insertion of needles also increases circulation of blood and helps to move lymphatic fluid which reduces inflammation and brightens the skin. During a session, your practitioner will target problem areas on the face in conjunction with body points that help to treat the underlying patterns of aging.

An initial consultation with our Providers is required to find out if you are a candidate for Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

If you are determined to be a candidate, we can perform your first procedure on the same day

Treatment Timeline and Goals:

Treatment 1

Evaluation, goals, body treatment and mini face treatment. This starts the process of increasing circulation of blood and lymph in the face.

Treatments 2-8 Full facial rejuvenation session targeting desired trouble areas. It takes 28 days to produce collagen and elastin. During these session patients should begin to notice deeper wrinkles start to smooth, less puffiness around eyes and chin, fine lines starting to disappear. Trouble areas will begin to correct. As motor points become regularly stimulated, the shape and tone of the face will shift.

Treatments 9-15 Full facial rejuvenation sessions that target desired trouble areas. The skin will have undergone two full cycles of college and elastin production and there will be a notable shift in the quality, texture and elasticity of skin. Both fine lines and deeper wrinkles will continue to smooth. Motor points stimulated in target areas will become regulated so treatment results will continue to last longer and longer. Many patients will be ready for maintenance at the end of the cycle.

Treatment 15-20 Full facial rejuvenation session continue to improve the quality, texture, and contour of the face. These treatments will continue as weekly sessions for some or transition to monthly maintenance sessions depending on how quickly an individual is responding to treatment. Factors that affect treatment response are age, genetics, lifestyle and consistency of treatment.

Top three reasons why Dr. Britta Loves Facial Rejuvenation!

1. It works with not against you! This is acupuncture! Facial rejuvenation will help improve digestion, sleep, immunity and circulation to give you the natural glow you are looking for. Facial rejuvenation considers your cosmetic goals within the context of your overall state of health. This means while targeting your cosmetic goals, your whole-body help is supported.


2. Results are cumulative and consistent rather than abrupt! Creating true balance and healing take time. You will notice consistent shifts after treatment but will never be jarred by a new appearance. You will always look like you! Just better 


3. Your face tells a story. By releasing facial muscles involved in habitual expression, we have the opportunity to exam the emotions that may be associated with those expressions. This makes us feel better on the inside which shines through on the outside. We also consider questions around what are you views on aging/what does aging mean to you? What are you happy and unhappy with? While not required, facial rejuvenation acupuncture can support healing that is more than just skin deep.

Common Questions About
Facial Rejuvenation
When will you see results?

The results of facial rejuvenation depend on a number of factors including age, genetics, lifestyle, skin tone and even diet. Generally speaking, a person can expect to have 12-20 weekly sessions and then continue on a maintenance plan 1x monthly for lasting results.

What are other uses of Facial Rejuvenation?

This procedure can also be used for neuromuscular conditions of the face such as Bell’s Palsy, Trigeminal neuralgia, Stroke recovery, Myasthenia Gravis, and TMJ. This is because facial rejuvenation targets areas called motor points which is where the nerve connects to the muscle. By needling these points, the nerve is encouraged to give the muscle a healthy amount of stimulation.
