What is Natural Facial Rejuvenation
Natural Facial Rejuvenation is a phrase used to repair, improve, and renew the skin through a variety of procedures, products and technologies such as Cosmetic Acupuncture, Microcurrent, Collagen Induction Therapy, nutrition, herbal medicine and botanicals, light devices, cosmeceuticals (a cosmetic that has medicinal properties, especially anti-aging ones) and other therapies and procedures that pertain to appearance-related wellness care fall under this description. Anti-aging skincare (cosmeceuticals) can be preventative and/or corrective and can be discussed based on your individual needs.
Fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss that contributes to sagging skin, eye bags, discoloration from sun damage and scarring can be addressed with Natural Facial Rejuvenation. Dr. McKendrick will tell you about available cosmetic options and then discuss all the benefits and side effects. As a board-certified Integrative Medicine practitioner, she is eminently qualified to perform these anti-aging procedures that provide you with a range of possibilities to regain a youthful appearance.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture
As one aspect of Natural Facial Rejuvenation, Cosmetic Acupuncture tonifies muscles and increases circulation and blood flow to the face which results in a more youthful glow, skin tightening and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural treatment, without the use of chemicals or invasive procedures, and works by using your body’s own innate healing ability. Additionally, the production of collagen and elastin is boosted so you keep that youthful look for longer.
History of Cosmetic Acupuncture
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an ancient treatment, once only used by royalty to keep looking younger, longer, and be seen as powerful and vital so they could remain ruling their nations. Since then, Cosmetic Acupuncture has been very elite and used by celebrities and heads of state. Now, Cosmetic Acupuncture is being made more available so that the rest of us can choose to improve our appearance without going under the knife or getting chemical injections.
How Does It Work
Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments promote the circulation of blood in the face. Increased blood circulation to the face moistens the skin and promotes collagen production for increased muscle tone and elasticity. Anti-aging Cosmetic Acupuncture is less expensive, healthier, and safer than the modern treatments addressing sagging and aging skin. It’s virtually risk-free and there are none of the side effects of face lift surgery, lasers, and injections like numbness, scarring, possible atrophy, and lengthy recovery time. This is the only aesthetic treatment that we know of where you leave not only looking better but feeling better too. Improved sleep and relaxation are two commonly experienced “side effects” to Cosmetic Acupuncture. Number of treatments will vary per person, depending on your needs. We are offering a free consultation, so you can come in and discover if Cosmetic Acupuncture is right for you.

An overall rejuvenation that is not confined to your face – this means you’ll feel better all over – or that your health has actually improved! A study in The Journal of Clinical Acupuncture shares that, with cosmetic acupuncture, 90% of patients have marked improvement in their faces and experience an overall rejuvenation that is not confined to the face. This is a good reason to call Cosmetic Acupuncture procedures “Anti-Aging Treatments” because they affect overall health in a positive way. You will look and feel younger! In some ways, you will actually be younger because the body functions will be working better. Outward beauty and youthful appearance is the result of inner well-being.
