Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture

 

Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture (FRA) has been used in Asia for hundreds of years to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful appearance. It aims to reduce fine lines, improve muscle tone and treat underlying imbalances that contribute to the aging process. FRA has become more popular in recent years, as people are seeking a safer, less expensive alternative to the more invasive procedures such as cosmetic surgery or Botox injection.

 

According to Chinese medicine, health and beauty are determined by a “free” flow of blood, Qi (energy) and lymph through a series of pathways or channels around the body including the face. If Qi, blood and lymph circulate freely, there Acupuncture Points shown on painting of womans faceis more oxygen and nutrients to nourish the skin and less build up of toxins and cellular waste, which can cause inflammation, blemishes and skin infections. As we age, Qi is unable to flow upward to “lift” the face and blood fails to nourish the deeper facial tissue. This eventually leads to poor muscle tone, sagging skin and wrinkles.

 

What does FRA treatment involve?

 

1.Tiny needles—as fine as a strand of hair—are inserted into specific points that spread Qi and blood out via channels to fill the face. This encourages the upward flow of energy to “lift” the face and increases blood flow to the skin and underlying muscles. Regulating the flow of Qi and blood also prevents congestion and accumulation of toxins, which lead to puffiness, blemishes and skin infections.

 

2. A warmer device called “Tiger Warmer” is used to warm the face and help the circulation

 

3. The use of a Gua Sha to improve circulation and remove dead skin.

 

4. Facial massage with nutrient oil

 

• No foreign substances are injected into your face

• There are no side effects or risks of disfigurement

• No trauma, wound, swelling or discolouration

A 1996 study published in the International Journal of Acupuncture revealed that, of 300 patients surveyed, 90 percent said they saw a lessening of lines, clearer skin tone and subtle tightening after facial acupuncture treatments.
