Hi! Vanessa Ho, L.Ac. here to bring you Part 2 of our Facial Acupuncture 101 Series to answer all of the most asked questions regarding this all natural procedure that’s touted as a natural facelift.
A quick background about me is that I’ve personally dealt with acne, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, and dullness for a very long time. The effects I saw with facial acupuncture and nutrition with Chinese Medicine Herbs is what inspired me to hone in on this specialty in my practice. If you haven’t read Part 1 of the Facial Acupuncture 101 series, please do so here as many important questions were covered!
The amazing results of facial acupuncture are gifts that keep on giving because the results last for far longer than many other conventional beauty treatments. Typically they last 3-5 years, however, that also depends on lifestyle and diet.
With each session, we are working on balancing your body and improving your inner homeostasis. Since acupuncture is done by viewing the body as a whole, cosmetic acupuncture in and of itself will not only give the skin a rejuvenated and radiant look, it will also treat other issues of the body. We place needles on points that will balance hormones, aid digestion, manage stress, and keep your body in balance.
The most commonly asked question that I get from patients is,
“Will facial acupuncture be painful?”
Many people are afraid of needles and would love to try facial acupuncture but are afraid of the needles used. In reality, the needles used for facial acupuncture are really as thin as a hair and will not cause discomfort. Many patients comfortably have the needles in place for 20 minutes during the treatment and many do not even feel the presence of the needles.
