WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING TO YOUR BODY AS IT AGES?
There are a number of changes our body goes through as we age that affects our skin.
1. Decrease in hormone levels
The endocrine system is in charge of producing and regulating hormones. As we age, these hormones naturally decline. The main hormone involved in skin moisture and density is Estrogen. It works along side Hyaluronic Acid found naturally in our skin to maintain hydration, and also increases collagen production, resulting in smooth skin.
2. Skin Firmness declines
Gravity isn’t the only thing to blame on sagging skin. When your skin isn’t retaining enough moisture, and the collagen and elastin in the middle layer break down, your skin loses its ability to stay firm.
3. Digestion slows down
Digestive health diminishes with age. Maintaining your digestive system is important for many reasons, including healthy skin. In order for your body to absorb the healthy foods you eat, or the supplements you take, it needs to be able to function properly. The body points that are applied during the facial acupuncture sessions can help replenish the vitality of the digestive system.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Facial rejuvenation significantly augments circulation and collagen production. By creating micro-traumas at the site of the needle insertion, your body increases elastin and collagen production as a wound-healing response.
At the end of each needle session, Facial Cupping and Guasha facial massage is done. Facial Cupping can smooth fine lines, relax tight facial muscles and help to drain stagnant lymph fluids and toxins. It can significantly decrease signs of inflammation in the skin by increasing the blood flow.
