Also called cosmetic acupuncture, acupuncture lifting, acupuncture facelift, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a healthy alternative to surgical facelift. Its main effects are to tone facial muscles, tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. This is a preventive treatment for people with inconspicuous wrinkles, and healing treatment in others whohave more visible wrinkles. Whether you are male or female, young or old, if you want to improve the appearance of your face and especially slow down the aging process, you can use this treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Over time, the skin cells do not reproduce as rapidly and the production of certain essential fibers is decreased. The skin loses its elasticity, firmness and thickness, and wrinkles appear. Acupuncture needles activate the blood and energy flows in the face thus promoting cellular exchanges and thereby the production of collagen.
During the first session, the acupuncturist specially trained in cosmetic acupuncture first assesses your energy balance to see the specific imbalances that can contribute to the condition of the skin. Then the facial treatment begins with a light massage that helps to relax the skin and activates lymphatic circulation. The facial muscles are then stimulated by a passive gymnastic induced by a toning device. Fine needles are then placed in precise acupuncture points and left in place 20 to 30 minutes. The session ends with a facial massage. The treatment lasts about 90 minutes.
Attentive to individual needs, the clinic Althea offers you an express treatment lasting 60 minutes or a deluxe treatment including cleaning, mask, serum and regulating face cream lasting 2 hours. We use the Phyto5 products for our cares.
IS IT PAINFUL?
The feeling associated with the sting of the needle can be considered negligible and even the most worried will quickly be reassured. In addition, all our needles are pre-sterilized and discarded after use.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NECESSARY?
The number and frequency of treatments will vary depending on the age of the patient and condition of the skin. We recommend a series of 6 to 8 weekly treatments and then maintenance sessions (with seasonal changes, for example).
