Over the years, the body and face change. It’s in the nature of things. Acupuncture does not go against nature, against the movement of life and its transformations. In Chinese medicine, the radiance of the eyes and complexion, the quality of the skin, its tonicity, the firmness of the tissues give many indications about the condition of the internal organs.
When you work on the face, you have a more global effect on the body, and vice versa. With needles, the main aim is to mobilize the body’s resources and energy in order to circulate it in a fluid and harmonious way. This action provides a feeling of overall relaxation that will be reflected on the face, as a mirror of our inner well-being.
In a young person, needlework has a very interesting preventive effect. But, from the age of 50, the acquired is maintained to repel facial sagging.
The first step is to take the pulse to inform the acupuncturist about the condition of the internal organs, then, by massaging the face with a small roller, relax and stimulate the skin before disinfecting it and inserting the first needle.
In aesthetic acupuncture, about thirty needles, small in size and made of gold, are used, because this metal is well known for its tonic action. The needles are planted in specific places to stimulate the facial muscles as much as possible and without pain.
After 20 minutes, the practitioner will turn the needles to increase their efficiency and stimulate further energy. After a session, you will have no redness, no scars, and neither unpleasant surprises !
Since acupuncture has a cumulative effect, the more you do, the more it “works”. The more we stimulate energy, the more it is present. It takes an average of 3-4 50-minute sessions spaced 1 week apart to obtain a result.
Acupuncture is a gentle and intelligent way to take care of yourself, both aesthetically and more generally. And, for that, there is no age! So why not take care of your face now with gentleness and without invasive procedures ?
