Even though Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture is safe & beneficial for many, there are some cases where we donít recommend it for patients:

  • Severe high blood pressure: it is acceptable when the blood pressure is under control and the patient is seeing a medical doctor
  • Severe migraines: patient needs to be free of migraine for 3 months. Until then, you can receive regular acupuncture treatments to eliminate your migraines!
  • Immediately after laser resurfacing: Please wait 3 weeks to receive facial acupuncture
  • Microdermabrasion: Please wait a week to receive facial acupuncture
  • Pregnancy
  • Colds or flu**
  • Acute herpes outbreak**
  • Acute allergic reactions**

**In the latter 3 instances, the patient may receive a facial acupuncture treatment once the condition has passed.
