Fine lines and wrinkles became much less prominent and the texture of my skin greatly improved! I am so happy with the results! Side benefits were increased energy and better sleep, too! Be sure to complete all 12 treatments for the best results. And ask Heather about the special creams and tools she has for maintenance!" - Mary Beth D
"After a series of treatments, I noticed my skin tone evened out, the wrinkles on my forehead diminished greatly, my cheekbones became more pronounced like they used to be and my face was less puffy. Thanks Heather!" - Gloria S
"Heather Sullivan performed 12 facial acupuncture treatments on me. Heather always treated me with compassion, tender care (which I really appreciate) and expertise. After viewing the before and after treatment photos, I notice the remarkable difference the acupuncture has made to my face: toning different areas and bringing consistent color (blood flow) to my face and as a secondary result more blood flow to my brain! Thank you, Heather, for your acupuncture skills" - Anita S
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA), sometimes referred to as “acupuncture facelift”, "facial enhancement acupuncture" or "cosmetic acupuncture", is a wonderful timeless beauty technique used by the Chinese since the Song Dynasty (960-1279AD).
It is an effective, non-surgical yet painless way of lessening the appearance of fine lines as well as deeper wrinkles. It also revitalizes the face by improving muscle tone and dermal contraction, eliminating overall puffiness and sagging around the jowls, tightening the pours and moisturizing the skin, improving facial coloring and eliminating skin tone as well as slowing the aging process in the face. It can balance out hormones that trigger facial acne and redness, brighten the eyes, improve eye sight, lift drooping eyes, reduce stress evident in the face and promote overall health and well-being.
Today it is sought after by both celebrities and others alike to restore vibrancy and youthful glow to one’s face. Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are some celebrities who swear by it.
To get the full and lasting effects of FRA, it is recommended to seek out a series of ten treatments, once a week. After the ten treatments are done, FRA can last up to three to five years (although it is advised to get one follow-up treatment once a quarter for maximum benefit).
Before beginning the first treatment, Dr. Sullivan will do an extensive evaluation to design the best treatment possible. Each treatment involves body points to help alleviate any internal symptoms a patient might currently have, followed by facial points to alleviate any facial concerns a patient wants to treat. After the needling is done, Dr. Sullivan applies red light and near red light therapy to the face and the patient falls asleep for 30 minutes. Each treatment is then proceeded by skin care application from an international reputable line of healing skin care called Yina. Every 5th treatment, a patient also receives microneedling from a dermaroller at the end of the treatment.
Patients who experience the following conditions are advised not to get FRA as it may exacerbate their symptoms: migraines, high blood pressure (even if it is controlled with medication), cancer, epilepsy and seizures, diabetes mellitus, aids, coronary disease, currently pregnant, acute herpes outbreak, problems with bleeding or bruising. Patients who want to try FRA should note that temporary facial bruising may occur, though it is rare.
FRA is the third largest sought out service in acupuncture today because of its profound effects on the face. Below are some before and after pictures of patients who have done FRA. Call today to schedule your first exam and treatment!
