Acupuncture Face Lifts:
(Cosmetic Acupuncture) is not really acupuncture in the true sense of the word, but an application of acupuncture principles and techniques. Acupuncture Face Lifts are quickly becoming a welcome alternative to costly and painful surgical face lifts and BOTOX injections. Acupuncture face lifts however, can be performed along with Botox or after a surgical face lift has begun to fall.
Your face is analyzed mapping four sections of your face: above the eyebrows, below the eyebrows, around the nose and the area of the lips. Needle placement is decided upon based on the amount of wrinkles, the depth and severity of the wrinkling and other factors.
Factors that complicate an acupuncture face lift are AGE, are you a SMOKER, were you a SMOKER, frequency of SUNBATHING and the overall condition of your skin and face. A determination will be made as to the number of treatments you will need.
Number of Treatments:
Some people require 15 to 20 treatments, while others require only 5 to 10. A substantial discount can be applied if you pay in advance with a check or credit /debit card. Ask the doctor about scheduling by calling 713 498-6866 today!
Acupuncture is an ancient healing art found throughout the world. Some say it originated in China, however evident suggests that even the Mayans used cactus needles to perform acupuncture. Acupuncture treats the body to promote and encourage natural healing and improve the functions of the body. Needles are placed at precise locations which stimulate or sedate or alter physiology leading to a healing experience.
Do the Needles Hurt?
You may feel a slight "pricking" sensation, then warmth and fullness. Typically the needles do not hurt. The needles are very small, about 20 times smaller than a hypodermic needle you see at the doctors office. They contain no chemicals or drugs and nothing is injected into you. If you just can't stand the idea of needles, never fear! There are alternatives such as microcurrent than can be used instead.
