Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Vs. Microneedling

Published on August 10, 2021 by Dr. Caitlin Gordon

Microneedling IS facial rejuvenation and facial rejuvenation IS microneedling.  So what is the difference?  Both therapies work their holistic magic in pleasing and noticeable ways.  Both therapies exclude chemicals, injections, and painful burning of the top layer of skin.  But let’s dive a little deeper, shall we?

  • Weekly sessions (10-15 total)
  • A full-body systems assessment
  • A full-body acupuncture treatment to address internal benefits, too
  • Facial cupping and gua sha to stimulate collagen production
  • Celluma Light Therapy while resting with needles
  • Crystal Face Rolling with jade and rose quartz to tighten and soothe skin
  • Organic Herb Face Oils
  • Regular follow-up sessions every 3-4 weeks for lasting results through the years

Microneedling Involves:

  • Tiny needles that make invisible punctures on the skin, which stimulate the body’s repair mechanism
  • woman receives microneedling treatment on her face at Amaluna WellnessChanging the appearance of your skin after only one treatment
  • Only one session per month
  • A 206% increase in collagen and up to 1,000% increase in collagen production
  • 80% improvement in post-burn scars
  • Increasing skincare product absorption by 10,000x, thereby increasing the product’s efficacy
  • A med spa treatment that is incredibly efficient
  • 3-5 sessions (or until your desired result is seen)
  • Leaving your skin red after treatment, but not like laser or chemical peels

Facial Rejuvenation is more relaxing, provides internal benefits by addressing disharmonies in the body, and is more of a time commitment as you’ll need to schedule an initial 90-minute session and then commit to 10-12 hour-long sessions weekly or biweekly moving forward.

Microneedling is only done once a month and is more efficient.  It requires fewer sessions with the actual needle treatment only lasting 20 minutes and the full appointment time is 60-minutes. 

Other ways to support your skin health

  • Avoid refined sugars and flours 
  • Cut way back on dairy and gluten
  • Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake
  • Be cognizant of environmental toxins, ie pollution, EMF, and harsh chemicals
  • Calm yourself and reduce your stress levels with meditation, breathwork, and good quality sleep
  • Move that body!  Get out and go for long walks, short runs, yoga classes, spin classes, the list goes on.

Rest assured, we’ll find that natural glow.  You can count on zero unnatural chemicals, lasers, or peels.  Because your skin is your greatest accessory and we want to see you flaunt it.
