LET YOUR BEAUTY SHINE THROUGH, NATURALLY
As you age, you do gain wisdom but certainly don’t look forward to having crepey, saggy or lifeless pale skin. You want to let your outer beauty continue to reflect your inner beauty. Changes in complexion and even fine wrinkles may become noticeable as early as our 30’s, especially if some time was spent worshiping the sun or frequenting tanning beds. At Hoku Integrated Healthcare can help you maintain your youthful complexion and prevent the signs of aging. We are experienced and trained in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture so you can truly age gracefully. Angela Berscheid, our acupuncturist has been certified in Facial Rejuvenation (FRA) acupuncture by world renowned Virginia Doran, for over 10 years.
FRA is different than other cosmetic techniques in that it is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach. We identify your constitution, your specific needs, and focus on you not the protocol. We not only focuses on your face, but treat any underlying health imbalances you may have. FRA practitioners also choose specific treatment plans that are individualized, unlike Cosmetic Acupuncture. We will focus on your own particular needs.
FRA increases circulation to your face, giving it a nice youthful glow. It revitalizes and brightens your complexion while reducing puffiness. FRA stimulates collagen production helping to sculpt cheekbones, removes small lines and diminishes deeper ones. Small blemishes and rashes disappear. Dry skin becomes moist, eyes brighten, muscles tighten the face and jowls, and pore sizes are diminished. The effects of emotional stress are significantly reduced. You no longer look stressed out or tired. This means a younger looking, relaxed, radiant you!
Although most needles are inserted in the scalp and face, constitutional body points are added to support your particular health in order for your inner beauty to shine through from the inside out. Top quality fine Japanese needles are used so that needle insertion is barely felt. Tiny intradermals are applied to fine lines to prevent them from becoming deep and ingrained. Appointments are often 1 ½ – 2 hours in duration, and are individualized with you in mind. We will work together on your problem areas to reach the best results possible.
Perhaps you want some personal enhancements but don’t want the lengthy down-time required to heal from invasive techniques, or you want to augment the work you have had done already. You may also want to be able to express yourself normally and naturally, which cannot be achieved with Botox injections. If so, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is definitely an option for you. This is a natural and gentle technique that allows your natural beauty to shine.
Even after the first treatment a positive difference is seen. At the 6th, noticeable lasting differences start to occur. On average, you get the best results from a series of 10-12 FRA treatments when appointments are made 2-3 times a week. Afterwards monthly to seasonal top-ups are required to keep optimal results.
To maintain a youthful appearance most people choose to start early in their 30’s, rather than wait until they are older so they can keep the radiance they already have and prevent wrinkles from developing. If you wish, we will give you facial exercises and relaxation techniques that help to enhance the results of the FRA. Furthermore, you will receive a relaxing complimentary Jin Shin Do® acupressure neck and shoulder release with each treatment.The result? On average you will look 5 – 10 years younger depending on your age, lifestyle and health status.
WHO CANNOT HAVE FRA?
We will require a complete medical history to make sure FRA is safe for you. FRA should not be given in people with certain pituitary disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, certain heart conditions, those with pacemakers, migraine headaches, bleeding or bruising disorders, during pregnancy, or cold, flu, allergic reaction or herpes outbreak.
WHAT ARE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
As there are many underlying capillaries in the facial area sometimes a small bruise or welt may occur. We use effective natural hydrasols and techniques that help prevent this from occurring.
IS THAT OKAY IF YOU’VE HAD BOTOX?
Please let us know in advance when and where you have received any Botox injections so that we will avoid those areas.
