The Natural Facelift: From Taut to Glowing Skin

 

Cosmetic facial acupuncture has its origins in ancient China (available to royalty) and has ever since been used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as acne and blemishes. Based on the TCM principle that imbalances in the organ systems can be corrected, it is used to increase vitality and rejuvenate the skin. In recent years, this ancient method has been revived with a vengeance. It is increasingly used to elicit a facelift effect for sagging skin. Interestingly, this trend has grown in popularity in the West (even Hollywood celebrities like Kim Kardashian) and the method has been progressively viewed as a safe alternative to invasive surgical procedures.


THE PROGRAMME

In PULSE TCM Clinic, we use ElectroAcupuncture (EA), a particular facial acupuncture technique to enhance this firming effect. EA is a form of acupuncture whereby a small electric current is passed between pairs of needles to increase the therapeutic effect of regular acupuncture. Conventionally, it has been used to treat pain issues and is deemed as an effective mode of treatment. We have adapted EA for cosmetic purposes, especially for the lifting effect. Pairs of needles are inserted at specific acupoints and/or different muscle groups to stimulate its contraction. The ultimate goal of this treatment is to increase definition and achieve a lifted look.

 

How It Works

1. Cosmetic facial acupuncture stimulates the contraction of facial muscles to improve muscle tone, resulting in the firming and tightening of the skin.

2. The needling of specific acupoints on the face stimulates certain meridians in the body and restores balance and increases vitality. In addition, blood circulation is enhanced during the process resulting in a natural glow and improved skin tone.

3. It creates micro-trauma in the tissues, stimulating regeneration of tissues and increasing collagen production.

SESSIONS

 

1st – 10th session

Depending on individual skin condition, it is advised to come twice a week. As this programme introduces micro-trauma to expedite regeneration of facial tissues, long intervals between sessions are discouraged.

11th – 15th session

This is when individuals begin to observe significant improvement in terms of firming effect and skin tone. Some individuals may observe an improvement before the 10th session. Sessions can be less intensive, with a frequency of once a week.

16th – 20th session
Frequency of visits can be reduced to once a fortnight.
