Cosmetic Acupuncture Renewal: An All-Natural Treatment for Smooth and Youthful SkinBeauty
Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture Renewal
For Dr. Karen Lam, healthy aging is an area of special interest. She uses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy which focuses on protecting and nourishing the life-force within to help you look and feel vibrant as you age. She has promoted facial rejuvenation since 1996 and provides a whole body and energetic treatment style by combining ancient acupuncture techniques with modern technology. This technique promotes longevity and vitality by observing the “shen”, or inner reflection as seen on the face and selecting particular acupuncture points that improve aesthetic appearance and tone of the face. The facial acupuncture treatment is then enhanced using our Rejuveness System.
The purpose of Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture Renewal is to not only address the physical appearance of the face, but to also empower the emotional well-being of your entire person.
- Reduce and/or eliminate fine lines
- Diminish appearance of larger wrinkles
- Reduce appearance of under eye bags and double chin
- Lift drooping eyelids and sagging tendencies
- Improve facial tonicity
- Tighten pores and brighten eyes
- Improve facial color
- Increase collagen production
- Decrease severity of conditions like Bell’s Palsy and acne
A study in 1996 in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that 90% of the 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture had marked effects after one course of treatments. These effects included leveling of wrinkles, improved facial muscle elasticity and overall rejuvenation.
