​​​​What is ​Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture(FRA)?

​Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a totally natural,

non-surgical facial that more people are turning to

as a viable and highly acclaimed alternative to

invasive injections, fillers and chemical treatments.

 It involves placing tiny, painless acupuncture needles

into various points on the face.

FRA has been used in Asia for hundreds of years

to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful

appearance. It aims to reduce fine lines, improve

muscle tone and treat underlying imbalances that contribute to the aging process.
A 1996 study published in the International Journal of Acupuncture revealed that, of 300 patients surveyed, 90 percent said they saw a lessening of lines, clearer skin tone and subtle tightening after facial acupuncture treatments.

What Causes Aging and How Does FRA Work?

According to Chinese medicine, health and beauty are determined by a “free” flow of blood, Qi (energy) and lymph through a series of pathways or channels around the body including the face. If Qi, blood and lymph circulate freely, there is more oxygen and nutrients to nourish the skin and less buildup of toxins and cellular waste, which can cause inflammation, blemishes and skin infections. As we age, Qi is unable to flow upward to “lift” the face and blood fails to nourish the deeper facial tissue. This eventually leads to poor muscle tone, sagging skin and wrinkles.

During a FRA treatment tiny needles—as fine as a strand of hair—are inserted into specific points that spread Qi and blood out via channels to fill the face. This encourages the upward flow of energy to “lift” the face and increases blood flow to the skin and underlying muscles. Regulating the flow of Qi and blood also prevents congestion and accumulation of toxins, which lead to puffiness, blemishes and skin infections. 

  • Increased blood circulation => lymphatic drainage and detox
  • Stimulates collagen => plumps up the skin
  • Tightens muscles in the face and neck => lifting and firming
  • Increases cell regeneration => fills in fine lines
  • Regulates hormones in acne and stress-related skin => clearer, brighter skin

A Safe and Effective Alternative to Botox or Surgery

                                                                                                 Although celebrities swear by Botox to smooth                                                                                                    out their wrinkles, did you know that Botox is                                                                                                        made  from the one of the deadliest poisons                                                                                                            known to   man? Botox is a derivative of                                                                                                                    botulinum toxin, a lethal poison, which                                                                                                                        paralyses muscles that create wrinkles.
                                                                                                  FRA has become more popular in recent years,                                                                                                     because people are seeking a safer alternative to                                                                                               the more invasive procedures such as Botox                                                                                                           injection or face lift surgery.

While FRA does not claim to replace surgery or work as quickly as Botox, it is an excellent alternative for a number of reasons:

  • It is far less costly
  • No foreign substances are injected into your face
  • There are no side effects or risks of disfigurement.
  • It is virtually painless and no anesthesia is needed
  • No trauma, wound, swelling or discolouration
  • You can return to work immediately
