Acupuncture facial rejuvenation is a proven protocol that aids in dermal contraction and muscle tone of the face and neck. A well-qualified acupuncturist uses fine intradermal needles to increase the production and dispersal of collagen which helps to firm the skin and remove wrinkles. However, beauty is much more than just skin deep. Thus, Une-Hi not only focuses on the face but also the whole body to treat any underlying causes of aging and disease. Treatments improve circulation of qi and blood to the face to restore a brighter complexion, increase metabolism to reduce puffiness, balance hormones to moisten dry skin and clear up acne, and relieve stress to lead to a calmer and happier life to prevent future wrinkles and disease. Acupuncture facial rejuvenation is a series of 16 consecutive treatments that work to give lasting results from 3-5 years along with a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Une-Hi is also certified in the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system, as seen in O Magazine and the The New York Times. This system consists of three specific protocols for the face and neck, abdomen as well as overall weight issues and fertility challenges. Learn more about it by clicking here.
