Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for renewing the face as well as the whole body. Fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced and bags around the neck and eyes firmed.
Fine needles are placed at a variety of acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to stimulate the body’s natural energies, or Qi. Since muscle groups are addressed as well the acupuncture points, the face lifts itself, via the acupuncture points, through the muscles’ toning and tightening action. The needles also stimulate blood and circulation, which improves facial colour.
A treatment would involve a complete intake with Dr. Stankowski followed by a facial massage. Needles would then be inserted in the arms and legs in addition to the face and neck. These treatments simultaneously address local trouble areas as well as underlying conditions.
In order to achieve maximal results, 12-15 weekly treatments are recommended. As this is following the natural aging process, monthly maintenance treatments are recommended.
Facial Acupuncture is contraindicated with those who have severe (uncontrolled) hypertension, and/or severe migraines, and/or has had laser resurfacing within the last 3 weeks. It is not to be performed on those during pregnancy, acute herpes outbreak, or acute allergic reaction.
