Facial Rejuvenation Without Surgery

If you would like to improve your complexion and skin elasticity, facial rejuvenation acupuncture may be the natural solution you are looking for.

Cosmetic Surgery vs. Acupuncture for Face Lifts  

While cosmetic surgery can sometimes provide superb results, the risks are high for your health, your wallet and the final aesthetic results.

On the other hand, acupuncture cannot completely erase 60 years off a person’s face but many men and women have successfully used facial acupuncture to significantly decrease the appearance of wrinkles, to improve complexion and to tone lax muscles.

How Does Acupuncture for Facial Rejuvenation work? 

Acupuncture works by locally invigorating your Qi and your Blood.  By doing so, facial rejuvenation acupuncture promotes lymph drainage and creates new cellular growth, which serves to improve your complexion and facial muscle tone while reducing fine lines.

Dr. Lu can create personalized treatments for men and women of all ages. Facial rejuvenation treatments may include acupuncture, acupressure (without needles), electro-acupuncture and/or herbal masks.

What Results Can You Expect from Facial Rejuvenation? 

Results are cumulative and will vary for each person. Generally speaking, patients start to see results within a few sessions and experience a significant difference after 6 to 10 sessions. Their friends and family often remark that they look brighter and younger.

Some of Dr. Lu’s patients have been so pleased that they’ve cancelled their planned cosmetic surgeries after seeing what facial rejuvenation acupuncture did for them.

On top of the noticeable changes on your face, you will likely experience an overall improvement in your health and mind as acupuncture affects your entire mind, body and spirit.

If you want to look younger and bring out your inner beauty and radiance, call Dr. Lu today to schedule a consultation.

Acupuncture for Acne, Pimples, Dry Skin and More

Acupuncture is also commonly used to treat teenagers and adults with various skin problems.  Unfortunately for those who have acne, several acne medications have serious side effects that prevent them from being in the sun.

Acne acupuncture doesn’t have any side effects and a surprising amount of research suggests that it is highly effective.  For example, in 1990, the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine published a paper describing the results of a clinical study done in China with 80 people suffering from acne1. Each patient received a personalized acupuncture treatment. 62% of these 80 patients were “clinically cured”, i.e., their skin cleared and their other symptoms were under control.

In a different study published in 19932, 98 people ranging from ages 15 to 28 received acne acupuncture treatments.  During this study, they had an acupuncture session every 2 to 3 days for 3 weeks.  55% were considered cured, 43% improved and 2% did not see a change in their condition.

Acupuncture and herbal therapy can treat many other skin conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and dry or itchy skin.  Contact Dr. Lu today to book a consultation and discuss what acupuncture and Chinese herbs could do for you or your family.
