There are various types of acupuncture but one technique that is becoming increasingly popular is cosmetic acupuncture. Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using intradermal needles to improve skin condition and fight the ageing process. It can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots and lift skin. Many celebrities are now trying different forms of facial acupuncture.

The acupuncture needles will stimulate local blood flow and the production of collagen. Wrinkles appears when the collagen production of your body naturally decreases with age.

Eva will also put some needles in the body to create a holistic Facial acupuncture treatment and improve your general health. For exemple she will use point to nourish your Yin in the body if your skin is too dry.

 Botox cannot treat wrinkles due to aging or sun exposure or reduce the fine lines (only works on dynamic wrinkles – smile lines, frown lines) 
Risk of paralysis of surrounding muscles & upper eyelid droop 
Only temporary results. The more you get, the more you need to achieve same effect 
It is very expensive! 
May not be able to raise eyebrows and have other expressions 
Long term effects of botox are still unknown
Toxins are put in the body when using botox and toxins will accelerate wrinkle productions.

Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation actually is recommended for patients who have previously had botox injections in the face. Cosmetic Acupuncture keeps the botox effective for a longer period of time and most people find they only need to upkeep the botox every 8 to 12 months rather than every 3 to 6 months! 

Yes. Overall facial muscle tone, circulation, collagen and elastin stimulation and the glow from within are not benefits of a facelift. If you wish, I can do scar reduction therapy. I use the needles to break down the scar tissue for a smoother more natural appearance as well as re-establishing the energy and blood flow through the scarred areas. Also, gravity is still working everyday after the surgery, so you can prevent further surgeries.

Cosmetic Acupuncture may erase as many as 5 to 15 years from the face, with results apparent after a course of treatments. 

Fine lines may be eliminated and wrinkles diminished. Bags under the eyes can be reduced, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized. Other likely results include: moisturizing of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face; increased collagen production, muscle tone, and dermal contraction; tightening of the pores; brightening of the eyes; improvement of hormonal balance to help acne and the reduction of stress. This brings out your innate beauty and radiance.

While it does not produce the dramatic results of some of invasive procedures, it does help the face look younger, healthier and more radiant without dangerous side effects. 

Since the body/mind/spirit are all connected, negative emotions reflect in the face and change the appearance of skin texture, color and tension. Acupuncture can eliminate stress and bring out innate strength, vitality and health. You will not only look younger but also most certainly feel younger. Studies show that stress is the number one killer in the world. It leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, and all kinds of other ailments. Have you ever considered how STRESS can affect your face? And certainly, stress causes one to age more rapidly (including in the face). Acupuncture is a great stress reliever.

Needles are used to break down the scar tissue, which reduce it in size and thickness for a smoother more natural appearance. Also, the energy and blood flow through the scarred areas is re-established. Women with Hysterectomy scars benefit greatly. Anyone who has had body piercing scars, surgery scars, scars from trauma, especially keloid scars, benefit greatly from scar therapy. Facial scars are especially important to reduced in size. Redness, unevenness, sensitivity, numbness, tingling are all indications that the scar should be worked on. I have successfully stopped lower abdominal pain lasting 35 years of from my work on Hysterectomy scars.

A typical course of treatment consists of 10-14 consecutive treatments to see desired results. Twice per week for 5-7 weeks. While results are often noticeable after just a few sessions, a full course allows deeper, more lasting results to occur. After completing a course of treatment, maintenance sessions can prolong the results. Maintenance sessions usually occur monthly for 2 to 3 months and then seasonally for as long as you wish to maintain results depending on the reaction of the patient. For some difficult cases, for example if the patient is older with deeper lines, they may need to repeat another 10 sessions. Why maintenance? Because the two best friends of aging, gravity and the sun are still with us; We need to combat that.

The effects of Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation are cumulative and last up to 3-5 years after a course of 10 treatments, with maintenance.

Each patient will be different, but usually each patient will need maintenance treatments once per month or once per season. Cosmetic Acupuncture diminishes the fine lines already existing on the skin and prevents the skin from aging.
