COURSE OF TREATMENT:
A full course of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture involves 10-15 treatments once or twice a week to take 5-15 years off the face. The initial treatment lasts about 1 ½ hours and follow-up treatments take about 60 minutes.
Results may be seen as early as the first treatment, but it is not until around the 7th treatment that the effects become long lasting and more dramatic. Final individual results may vary, but can last from 3-5 years with periodic maintenance treatments.
