Natural Face Lifts using Traditional Chinese Medicine
Anyone concerned with looking and feeling younger while slowing down the aging process benefits from our Facial Rejuvenation treatments. Our techniques include Herbal Infusion, Jade stone (Gua Sha), Moxibustion, Cupping, Acupressure and Acupuncture. These techniques when combined address wrinkles, sagging, dull complexion, discoloration, dark/age spots, dark circles, and puffy eyes by bringing blood and nutrients to the face while releasing metabolic waste and toxins.
How does it work?
Along with the aging process, a sluggish metabolic rate and an excess of waste products will inevitably lead to malnourished skin causing dullness, wrinkles, age spots, dryness, and hair loss as well as brittle and deformed nails. Facial Rejuvenation treatments using TCM principles improves the skin because in TCM every part of the body is linked to internal organs, therefore sagging of the skin can be a result of a weakness in the spleen, and dark circles under the eye are linked to a liver or stomach weakness, and so on.
Herbal Infusion Facial uses herbs that are water-based packed with nutrients that can be seen immediately in better looking skin. The science of herbology and the power of Jade when applied to anti-aging skin rejuvenation, helps balance the body’s systems, promotes blood circulation, detoxifies the body and skin, healing from the inside-out.
Moxibustion Facial is a safe treatment, which has a remarkable effect in the treatment of facial rejuvenation. Skillfully applied, the moxibustion therapy can achieve long-lasting, sometimes permanent results.
Jade Stone Facial (Gua Sha) this is an effective, commonly used technique in TCM facial rejuvenation. This technique uses a small board with smooth edges to massage, manipulate, and stimulate certain points of a particular area in order to promote blood flow, and remove toxins from the body.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Facial is the use of extremely tiny needles that are inserted into the superficial layer of the skin. It is thought that tiny neuron stimulation of fine needles placed in groups cause a reduced osmotic potential in local skin cells. It causes them to plump up by drawing in extra tissue fluids and it fills out the wrinkles, evens them out.

Collagen fibers are also increased. Collagen forms a ground substance or white fibers; in connective tissue it’s like a mesh holding the skin taught and it gives it a youthful and velvety appearance and feel to the skin. Both the epidermis and Inner dermis are improved.
Collagen Induction Therapy (Micro needling)
Micro needling is a safe, chemical free method commonly used to assist visible signs of aging and a wonderful way to rejuvenate the skin. It has been studied extensively as an alternative means of drug delivery for the pharmaceutical industry and a rapid way of inducing collagen production in both scarring and simple anti-aging treatments. For this reason, there has been a large body of research into its effectiveness. Some of the more interesting findings are:
- An average 206% increase in collagen and up to 1,000% increase in collagen production after a single treatment.
- A possible 140% increase in epidermal thickness.
- Patients described an average 80% improvement in post burn scars with micro needling.
- Some forms of micro needling can increase the absorption of some products through the skin by up to 10,000 times.
Professional skin needling is considered a safe skin treatment when performed by a medical aesthetician, nurse, or physician. This should not be confused with the myriad of home care micro needling devices designed for patient use.
If patients choose the DIY micro needling at home we recommend the Derma Roller home roller and offer lessons in our office of how to do it safely along with product recommendation.
