Acupuncture ~ LED Light Therapy ~ Microcurrent
The beauty of this natural face lift is that it is rooted in Chinese medicine which treats the whole body. Facial injections and surgeries are invasive treatments that come with a host of possible adverse side effects. This is the natural approach to rejuvenating and lifting the face.
The procedure involves the integration of Chinese medicine with modern western modalities, giving rise to maximum lasting effects. The treatment aims to normalize and return the skin to a younger and more youthful state.

Aesthetic acupuncture is not just any experience, it is a treatment with results that can be felt and seen. Inserting the fine acupuncture needles simulates the skin cells to turn over; triggers the production of collagen and elastin while relaxing the connective tissue between the skin and muscles. The needles are inserted in specific locations to help the facial muscles that are tight to relax, as well as activate the muscles that have weakened, causing the face to sag and droop.
The Synergy Facial concludes with a specialized microcurrent treatment. The microcurrent mirrors your own body’s electrical output by emitting very similar low-voltage electrical currents. These currents accelerate cell repair and promotes healthier cell production. Microcurrent facials act like a “facial workout”, and a form of muscular re-education for the face.
I use three specific frequencies during the facial. One frequency relaxes the muscles that have tightened on the face causing wrinkles. One tones and strengthens the muscles that have weakened causing the face to sag. Another frequency is used to simultaneously repair the production of collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis, the top layer of your skin.
Once the facial needles are inserted, LED light therapy, is added to offer your skin another touch of health and youth. LED light therapy involves having low-power pulsing red and blue light wavelengths emitted directly through the skin.
This process cannot be felt, and is not painful because it does not produce any heat. LED light therapy increases blood circulation, helping to bring more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and cells. It improves natural collagen and fibroblasts production, two components that are important in a youthful skin appearance. Tissues are repaired and natural healing is achieved, as well as a lowering of oxidative stress, something highly associated with the aging process.
What is the course of treatment?
The optimum course would consist of 12 weekly treatments, however many people start with a course of six and continue to get a maintenance once a month for a few months. The effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the sixth session. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results for five to ten years. It is often recommended to supplement the Facial Rejuvenation program with Facial Self-Massage and/or Acupressure, Facial Exercises, Herbal and Nutritional Supplements, pure and authentic Aromatherapy blends for the skin, and a healthy diet.
