Cosmetic Acupuncture/ Electro-Light Rejuvenation Q&A

Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the aging process. Sometimes referred to as an "acupuncture facelift" or "facial rejuvenation," cosmetic acupuncture often is used as an alternative to surgical facelifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of aging in the skin.

Cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift droopy eyelids. Most courses of cosmetic acupuncture treatment involve 10 or more sessions, as well as additional sessions for maintenance of results.

Facial Rejuvenation acupressure used alongside ELR (Electro-Light Rejuvenation), or microcurrent light therapy is a wonderful, holistic, alternative approach to fighting the aging process. For this treatment, Joe uses an Acutron Mentor Machine which is non-needle acupuncture care (acupressure). Micro-current and color light therapy have advanced to become the cutting edge approach for alternative treatments for pain relief and non-invasive facial rejuvenation.

The combination of color light and microcurrent in specific frequencies also provides much needed relief to stresses of modern living. This treatment is a great alternative to Botox injections, fillers and invasive laser treatments.

Benefits include:

  • increased muscle tone
  • facial collagen production
  • minimized fine lines and wrinkles
  • tightened saggy skin
  • reduced puffiness especially under the eye

Problem issues such as acne, scars, Rosacea, TMJ, sinus issues and headaches can also be successfully treated with this treatment plan. You will notice positive changes after your first treatment, however for long lasting results, 6 – 8 treatments is recommended. Facial rejuvenation can last for years with proper care and monthly maintenance treatments.

What Makes ELR different from other facial rejuvenation treatments?

Everything! Energy Light Rejuvenation stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin tissue by working in harmony with the natural process of the body. ELR is holistic and high-tech. The rejuvenation process of ELR has no negative side effects- no swelling, redness, numbness or flaking. We only offer the side benefit of feeling as great as you look!

What is Microcurrent and is it safe?

Microcurrent is also known as “electro-medicine” and has been used safely and effectively for decades by medical professionals including chiropractors, physical therapists and MDs to treat conditions such as Bells Palsy and deep tissue injuries. Through these applications, the cosmetic benefits of microcurrent were discovered. Microcurrent is safe and non-invasive and works in harmony with the natural energy system of the body. Unlike other non-invasive facial treatments, Microcurrent causes no discomfort, swelling or redness.

What is Therapeutic Light and Color?

Therapeutic Light and Color is what sets ELR apart from other electro-facial treatments. Light and color have remarkable healing effects on the body. By combining specially selected colored light to the correct acu-points of the body, we are able to address the specific needs of each individual client. The combination of Microcurrent and color light therapy provides positive and lasting results.

How Many ELR Sessions are Required?

Each person is different and your skincare or wellness professional will assess your unique needs. Generally speaking, 10-20 treatments are recommended. However, you will notice a difference in the way you look or feel after the first treatment. by the end of the third session, friends and family will notice. More dramatic results are seen around treatment 10. Since there is no downtime required for healing, treatments can be performed consecutively under the direction of your wellness professional.
