Restore Your Radiance
with Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture offers a safe, gentle, and natural alternative to surgery or injections for firming and smoothing your skin.

Acupuncture stimulates your body’s own healing mechanisms to regenerate, renew, and restore your skin. Imagine a more youthful appearance without the side effects of plastic surgery!

Restore Your Radiance with Facial Acupuncture in
Lower Highlands, Denver

As we age, we grow in wisdom and go through a wealth of experiences that enrich our lives. But our skin often doesn’t look or feel as smooth and tight as it once did. Many people turn to plastic surgery or unnatural injections to regain their former radiance, but these procedures carry with them pain, risk, expense, and permanence. You may want to try a more natural approach to restoring a youthful look. With facial acupuncture at Refuge Acupuncture in Denver, we can help you match your skin to the youth you feel on the inside.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to promote health and healing through realigning and balancing energy. By inserting fine needles into specific points on your body’s energy pathways called meridians, your own energy is redirected to promote healing. By stimulating these points on your face, acupuncture helps restore a youthful glow.

What Results Does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Provide?

Working with the same basic principles as acupuncture for the body, facial acupuncture has an added benefit of improving the skin’s appearance and texture on the face. Recipients of facial acupuncture report the following results:

  • Elimination or decrease in wrinkles
  • Increase in skin elasticity
  • Decreased acne
  • Improved facial muscle tone
  • Smoother skin texture
  • Reduction of sagging skin around eyes
  • Improved firmness of neck skin
  • Lightening of dark under-eye circles
  • Tighter skin and smaller pores

In addition to the physical appearance benefits of facial acupuncture, it can also help those suffering from facial paralysis and temporomandibular disease (TMJ). 

How Does Facial Acupuncture Work?

During a facial acupuncture treatment at Refuge Acupuncture, a series of needles are strategically placed in the skin on your face. Acupuncture needles improve the flow of qi energy on your face, but they also create “micro injuries” which boost your body’s normal healing response. The areas are flooded with collagen and elastin, which are the major components of what makes young skin smooth and firm. Facial acupuncture uses your body’s own natural healing properties to create a more youthful appearance.

Elevate Your Facial Acupuncture Experience

The licensed practitioners at Refuge have decades in practice and specialize in facial rejuvenation acupuncture as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We invite you to enjoy facial acupuncture or other services, including Gua Sha at our Denver Highlands location. You may also benefit from an herb consultation to complete your investment in your health.

Facial Acupuncture and Supplemental Services

In addition to your facial acupuncture, your acupuncturist at Refuge Acupuncture may also recommend a few additional services. If recommended, you may also receive Gua Sha. This related treatment is included as part of your facial acupuncture at no additional investment.

Gua Sha Facial

In a Gua Sha experience, a flat massage tool usually made of jade or rose quartz is stroked across the skin to promote circulation and activate energy. This stimulation improves tissue drainage and reduces inflammation, resulting in tighter, smoother skin.
