What is the
difference between an acupuncture face lift program and a
surgical face lift?
surgical approach is largely a structural approach, which
tightens the skin and underlying facial tissue, surgery
involves local anaesthetic, incisions, and a lengthy
recovery process. Through the acupuncture and rejuvance
method, the skin's underlying tissues are tonified and
energized so they naturally tighten themselves. Also,
through the use of facial treatments and manipulations,
various facial conditions can be improved.

surgical face lift?
are no surgical risks, no danger of infection, no recovery
period, it is painless less expensive and there is no time
spent in hospital. There is no time off work, it is a safe
alternative for those who cannot have a surgical lift and it
