About Facial Gua Sha
Gua sha is an ancient Chinese medicine technique often referred to as a natural alternative to Botox. Facial gua sha improves both the appearance of your face and skin through sculpting, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing under eye puffiness and dark circles, as well as improve overall elasticity for smoother, brighter skin.
About Anti-aging Acupuncture
With anti-aging acupuncture, the acupuncturist will insert 40-79 tiny and painless needles on the face. When these needles are inserted into the face, positive micro traumas result. These micro traumas cause the body to start a natural repair process, re-generating skin tissue. It is the same idea as micro needling, however cosmetic acupuncture uses less needles. These small punctures also stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the surface of the skin. This promotes the anti-aging effects by evening out complexion and creating a glow. These punctures also help stimulate collagen production, which improves the elasticity of the skin.
