Effects & Benefits

  • • Encourage lymphatic drainage and normalisation of sebaceous glands, stimulate natural production of collagen and skin breathing.
  • Regenerate by increasing exchanges between cells.
  • Increase blood flow in areas cluttered by toxins, increase cellular activity and elasticity.
  • • Counter absence of movement of muscle which is the cause of wrinkles.
  • Regularize glands in skin that is too dry or too oily, reducing the phenomenon of inflammation that occurs in skin that is too fragile.

Why Choosing It?

  • • Because acupuncture has a natural action on skin: it does not abrade and it does not burn. No product enters the skin of your face.
  • • Because acupuncture has an effect on the main cause of wrinkles: muscle imbalance.
  • • To ensure quality and sustainability of results.
  • Because the acupuncture facelift is complementary to the surgical facelift. It thus increases the “lifespan” of the latter.
  • This is a non-aggressive method, which means that what you have gained will not be lost if you stop, only the preventive benefits it brings.

Face Treatment

  • • A session of approximately 60 minutes: insertion of needles in the body to hydrate the face as well as the general health, followed by a facial massage with a Chinese roller and another set of fine needles left in place for 20 minutes. The treatment ends with guasha, lymphatic facial massage and cold Jade roller.
  • The feeling of the needles entering the skin can be considered negligible. Even the most anxious of all will quickly get used to it.
  • The quantity and frequency of treatments will vary according to age and condition of skin. This will be discussed with the acupuncturist. Usually, after 40 years of age, I recommend 6 to 8 consecutive treatments, once a week, so that the effects will be cumulative and long-lasting. After this, one session every two months or every season will suffice for the benefits to remain
  • Presentation of the “ready-made” magnetised mask and of the “facial toner” to potentiate the treatments and maintain the benefits. Available at a very reasonable price at Distribution Larivière Meunier:
