MindBodyHerbs' Facial Rejuvenation is a local and distal acupuncture treatment for whole-body health and improvement in the appearance of the face. MindBodyHerbs combines massage, herbal masks, moisturizers and essential oils to address a variety of skin conditions—including fine lines and wrinkles, under-eye bags,  and poor skin tone—to reveal overall enhancements in appearance, as well as increased energy and eyes that sparkle!


Constitutional facial rejuvenation can enhance not only your physical appearance but also your overall health, giving you a glow that radiates from deep within. There are centuries-old records of it being used in the service of beauty and its ability to improve a variety of skin conditions has now been documented in clinical studies. 

Is it really a facelift? No, nor is it intended to replace a facelift. Cosmetic acupuncture entails no incisions, sutures or acid peels and it will not produce sudden, drastic changes in underlying structures. In fact, the American Cosmetic Acupuncture Association discourages the use of the term, “facelift” in connection with acupuncture, as this creates unrealistic expectations and, ultimately, disappointment. It is important to remember, that it took decades of stress, sun damage and exposure to environmental toxins for your skin to reach a state of "crisis", and the damage will not be instantly undone. The remedy cosmetic acupuncture may offer is the reduction or erasure of fine lines and the softening of deeper ones. Additionally, patients may experience the firming of jowls and a reduction in the size of under-eye bags.  It is not unusual for clients to report enhanced skin tone, increased energy and eyes that sparkle.

But it doesn’t stop there. Since constitutional facial acupuncture is based on time-tested principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a person’s overall health will also benefit.  Constitutional facial acupuncture is, after all, a whole-body treatment.  In the traditional Chinese medicine view, a person’s face is affected selectively by his or her internal organs.  Facial features reflect organic strengths, and as internal organs are fortified, one’s face reflects the improvement.  Besides addressing a patient’s condition holistically, I will work locally, inserting ultra-fine needles into and around specific wrinkles, acu-points or muscle points.  I will often incorporate herbal poultices, moisturizers, or essential oils into a treatment. An imperceptible electrical current may also be passed among the needles.

A course of ten to twelve treatments is standard, with periodic follow-up visits as needed. These sessions are labor intensive and will be priced differently than customary acupuncture treatments.  Not surprisingly, if you are a smoker or sun-worshipper, you will need to make a longer commitment in order to achieve results.
