How Long is the Treatment?A course of treatment for Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture includes about a 90 minute initial visit with an intake and treatment and approximately ten to twenty follow-up treatments for 75 – 90 minutes each for once a week. After the initial session, practitioner evaluates the patient’s response and then can determine the number of required follow-up visits. The follow-up treatments can vary depending on the individual. A person's daily habits and lifestyle, exposure to toxins, stress level, genetic, diet, proper digestion & elimination, sleep, emotional balance and age all contribute to the ultimate duration of the course. You should start to see significant differences after 5-10 treatments. 20 treatments are recommended for smokers or people with problematic skin.
It should be noted that age is not as crucial as might be estimated. An older patient with a healthy lifestyle & a good genetic predisposition may have a better prognosis than a younger person who is prone to dissipate themselves. By the end of a series, the patient should look and feel 5-15 years younger. These results may vary slightly, depending upon how well the patient has taken care of him/herself during the process and afterward. At this stage, maintenance treatments provide ongoing support within a normal process of aging.
Maintenance TreatmentsWithin the normal parameters of aging, the completion of a series of treatments should be effective. To ensure the persistence of the results, ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended after the completion of a series:
- Every 2 weeks for 2 months following the completion of a treatment series, then once a month for an indefinite amount of time.
- Of course, the patient can also embark upon a subsequent series after a week’s rest.
