For those of you who may not yet know, Traditional Chinese Medicine is where it's at! As a firm believer in TCM treatments, I recommend Dr. Amy to anyone, regardless of individual symptoms! In this case, we're talking about acne. Acne is typically brought upon when our inner-workings and gut lining are upset or imbalanced, and the body takes it out on our skin — thus creating a blemished complexion. That's where acupuncture comes in, a fantastic fit into any Acne Solution treatment plan! By linking these tiny needles to specific points throughout the body, your DTCM can begin to treat the underlying causes of your breakouts. Perfect.
Acupuncture treatments have been successful in regulating our hormones and soothing irritated gut linings — all of which play a role in the health of our skin. External benefits for the skin: acupuncture can clear heat (reduce redness), drain dampness (reduce cystic acne), and nourish your yin (to help soothe dryness). Our cosmetic acupuncture treatments, such as our Rejuvenating Acupuncture Facial, or Gua Sha Stone Facial, can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness in the face, as well as reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sunspots… customized with natural products suited to YOUR skin, sold!
Although our TCM Facials do not include extractions, pairing an acupuncture body needling with the ACNE SOLUTION FACIAL is the ultimate way to COMBAT that stubborn acne! Byeeeee. So here's what the (ASF) includes;
The Acne Solution Facial | $149 - 60 minutes (includes 4 treatment Enhancements, facial valued at $200!) Because we care about the people, we've priced it at $149, so you're essentially getting those few add-ons for FREE!)
Pre-Cleanse - Oil-based pre-cleansing is a remarkable way to gommage the skin. Gommage comes from the French word meaning 'to erase'. A classic exfoliation method, currently in the beauty spotlight, for its ability to leave the surfaces of the skin smooth and soft, while also treating and hydrating at the same time.
Balancing Cleanser - to cleanse away all the impurities that the pre-cleanse has loosened up for us! Also preps the skin for activators and products to penetrate more effectively.
Booster Stimulant - we use stimulants to get fresh blood flowing into the skin and to oxygenate and clear pores. Dis-encrusting the skin so that the extractions are a breeze!
Extractions - because blemishes underneath the skin need to come out! Sometimes we forget that just putting products on our face is not quite enough to completely heal a congested complexion. Although an at-home skincare regime will help to nourish and strengthen your skins overall health, we should still be thinking about the bacteria, dirt, and oils that get TRAPPED beneath those pores. Extractions should only be performed by a skin care professional because they know how to properly get things out without further damaging the integrity of your beautiful skin!
Masque(s) / Toner / Serum / SPF (daytime) / non-SPF Moisturizer (nighttime)
High-Frequency - THE BACTERIA KILLER! High-Freq is used to safely and gently oscillate and oxygenate using an electrical current. This helps to zap and eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells, and improve skin care product absorption. The contact between the device and your skin ignites the inert gas within the electrode (nerdy), which then produces electrical healing light energy and unstable oxygen - which instantly converts into purifying ozone! In other words, when mixed with the air outside of the electrode, the skin is then infused with rejuvenating oxygen molecules! #Science
