Although everyone’s experience with acupuncture is different, it shouldn’t hurt. Acupuncture needles are very thin and solid (unlike the hollow needles used to give injections or take blood). You may feel a slight sensation as the needle is being inserted but it shouldn’t be painful. Some report a feeling of heaviness, tingling or warmth.
This depends on many variables. Generally speaking, the longer you’ve had the issue, the longer it will take to treat. Although many feel relief after just one session, multiple sessions are often needed for long-term effects. Schedule a free consultation to get an idea of what your treatment plan will look like.
A course of treatment for Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is generally 10-12 treatments. It is best to start out twice a week for 6 treatments then weekly for the remainder. Continued maintenance treatments can prolong the effects for 5-10 years.
Licensed acupuncturists go through extensive training that includes at least 800 hours of clinical training alone. They focus on treating the entire body including the root cause of the ailment. Acupuncturists treat a variety of ailments including hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, stress, pain and more. Although physical therapists go through comprehensive education, they are only required to take 24 contact hours in dry needling technique and can only treat neuromuscular pain. That being said, dry needling does have its uses and many licensed acupuncturists use dry needling techniques in addition to more traditional needling techniques.
There are a few conditions that are contraindicated for Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (but can be treated with regular acupuncture) such as migraines, hypertension, pituitary disorders, bleeding disorders and diabetes. It should not be administered during pregnancy, during a bout of a cold or flu or during a herpes outbreak.
Because there is a possibility of bruising, it is not recommended to schedule a treatment right before a special event.
