How long does it take to improve?

A course of treatment consists of 10-15 sessions (generally 12). We recommend that clients have the first 6 sessions twice a week and have the last 6 sessions once a week to get maximum result. This means that a full course of sessions takes 9 weeks to complete.

Some results may be seen or felt as early as the 2nd or the 3rd session but the effects become most noticeable and lasting on or about the 7th or 8th session. In some exceptionally difficult cases, the course of treatment may need to be repeated again or maintained with follow up treatments.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

As in surgical facelifts, the actual outcome and how long the effects will last cannot be predicted. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her age, condition and lifestyle prior to treatment. For this reason, results for some may be more or less dramatic than they are for others.

Musculoskeletal Acupuncture

Acupuncture for aches and pains related to muscle and joint injuries will typically begin to respond in the first half of treatment, and become more pronounced in the second half of treatment.  Individual results will vary on how long the person has been injured.

Follow-up Acupuncture

Following the initial course of treatment, monthly maintenance sessions can prolong the results for 5 to 10 years. The benefits of a monthly maintenance program are not limited to the face, but rather, improve the body’s overall health and vitality. This, in itself, slows down the aging process.
