What do we treat:

Miso Face Acupuncture brings 7 benefits for your skin and youthful look:

 

  1. Reduce the tension of facial muscles and restore the elasticity to soften the fine lines. It has the effect of increasing blood circulation which naturally promotes collagen production, lifts and firms the skin, and brings natural moisture balance and glow to the skin with a brightened complexion.
     

  2. Naso-labial Folds/ Laugh lines 
    Tension in the muscle causes loss of elasticity and the support of the epidermis, which then results in the nasolabial folds. Using the Miso FACE acupuncture can restore the muscle toning to soften the laugh lines.
     

  3. Fine line around the eyes and dark circles  
    The periorbital area is thin skin with blood vessels, as we age the circulation becomes poorer and muscle atrophy occurs, Miso FACE acupuncture can be used to restore muscle toning around the eyes. In the perspective of Chinese medicine, dark circles are formed by the accumulation of phlegm retention and blood stasis, facial acupuncture can regulate the phlegm retention and the meridian channels around the eyes to remove obstructed circulation and assist the fat tissues to drain the phlegm retention out to lighten the dark circles. 
     

  4. V Line/ Jawline
    The Masseter is the key to the jawline - using Miso FACE acupuncture, the masseter can be stimulated and treated to present a finer jawline and bring out a beautiful facial structure.
     

  5. Lifting and firming of the skin
    The sagging of the skin is caused by the impaired balance of the muscle. Miso FACE acupuncture can help to restore muscle atrophy as well as relieving muscle contracture to firm and lift the skin. 
     

  6. Facial Asymmetry
    Aging and acquired lifestyle or facial nerve conditions causes the facial muscles structures to change and become asymmetric, this is a natural part of aging - The cartilage continues to grow as you age, which may cause asymmetry.  
     

  7. Frown Lines
    Excessive facial expressions over long time causes contraction of the frontal muscle and results in frown lines. Cosmetic acupuncture can help to relieve the tension of the frontal muscle (forehead) and its nearing muscle groups to soften the lines and rejuvenate the forehead area.

Sagging, drooping skin, loss of firmness and preventative aging

After treatment the skin would feel firmer and denser in 4-5 weeks time.
