How often do I go for treatments?
A 1996 article in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with cosmetic facial acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. Effects included: improvement in skin texture, increased elasticity, brightening of facial complexion reduction of wrinkles, smoothing of fine lines and an overall feeling of rejuvenation.
For maximum benefit it is recommend that a patient undergo a full course of treatment. The length of a course of treatment varies depending on severity of the chief complaint, age and patient compliance. Generally a treatment course is once or twice per week for 6 – 10 weeks and thereafter monthly or bi-monthly treatments for maintenance. Since the effects of acupuncture are cumulative, results continue to progress throughout the course of treatment.
