Many people in recent years have used acupuncture for face-lift or facial-toning treatments. We went looking
for acupuncturists who specialized in facial rejuvenation acupuncture and found the authority at OK-GO
Acupuncture Health Care, California. One of the founders, Kwang Kim LAc, is a licensed acupuncturist and a
board certified anti aging health practitioner. According to Kwang Kim LAc, we have happily and successful
administered many facial rejuvenation treatments, which he believes that your face is ultimately a reflection of
your internal health and emotional wellbeing.
How many treatments does it take to see a difference?
Let me tell you how our program works. Some patients require immediate results, say, for a part in a movie they
are starring in shortly. These cases call for intensive therapy that involves 2-3 acupuncture treatments each
week for 6 to 8 weeks, facial massage twice a week for the same duration. But normally, most people opt for
the long term perspective which require acupuncture treatments once a week for 3-4 months, then
maintenance treatments once a month thereafter.
What can patients expect the result to be?
Many patients have reported a tightening sensation on their face after their treatments and over the course of
their acupuncture/ massage sessions, visible changes have been observed on their face. These are besides
the increased energy, clarity and happiness that often accompany the rejuvenation treatments.
Will the results be immediately noticeable like Botox injections?
Of course, we tell our patients not to expect results like plastic surgery or botox injections where over-night,
one’s face transforms drastically. What can be expected however from our facial rejuvenation program is a
more natural, healthier and toned facial appearance.
What is unique about your program?
The advantage of our rejuvenation program lies in its holistic approach that addresses the actual causes of skin
aging due to aging factors as opposed to procedures like plastic surgery which masks without correcting the
underlying imbalances. For people who are not motivated to work at changing their health habits, plastic
surgery may suit their needs better. Additionally our patients are given herbal supplements, such as our
proprietary Exquisite Skin formula that nourish the skin and promote healthy body functions within. Patients are
counseled on a special beauty-skin diet and nutritional intake designed to detoxify as well as promoting
What about massage and exercise, are they important?
Facial massage is performed weekly or every other weekly.
Our patients are also taught to perform self-massage at home with our proprietary herbal Regenerating face Oil
daily. It can contribute to improved blood flow into the face and elsewhere. Maintaining equanimity of the mind
and minimizing stress are essential in preventing and reducing wrinkle formation on one's face.
We teach our patients methods to achieve inner harmony through meditation and other techniques.
What else do you educate your patients in?
Lifestyle and environment also impacts their health cumulatively. Ever notice that lack of sleep or sleeping in
late cause those bags under your eyes! How about air conditioning drying out your skin! What about sun
damage and what to do?
We educate our patients about the importance of a good lifestyle and how to counteract adverse
environmental conditions. It requires work on the patient’s part in integrating acupuncture with healthy lifestyle
and fitness, and addressing the root cause. Through the process, acupuncturists and doctors of Chinese
medicine can help you not only to present a younger face to the world but also hopefully allow you to express
a healthier, youthful and vital you. Just don't expect to wake up from your treatments looking 20 years
younger www. Acupuncture.com
At 55 years old, I was not happy with the face I saw in the mirror. After just a few treatments, people who had
not seen me for several months were commenting on how well I was looking. I am amazed at how the years
rolled off my face and I look 7-8 years younger. I wish I had done this when I was in my 30’s my color is more
vibrant, my muscle tone firmer, my worry lines gone and my pores are even smaller! I would recommend this
to anyone who wants to look younger and feel better quickly and painlessly!

approach to reducing the signs of aging. A facial rejuvenation using this ancient technique can improve
muscle tone of the face and neck while addressing underlying imbalances that may have contributed to the
Why does skin sag?
According to TCM, wrinkles begin internally from a constitutional imbalance and fundamental weakness of Qi
(pronounced “chee”). Qi circulates throughout the body within a series of pathways called meridians.
Flowing through these pathways, Qi Provides nourishment, support, and energy to ever cell, tissue, muscle,
As we get older it becomes more difficult for Qi to flow upwards to “life” the face. This leads to inadequate
muscle tone, and over time, wrinkles and sagging skin. A variety of factors can contribute to this-poor diet,
digestion and circulation, or emotional and environmental stresses
Give your skin a life. A facial rejuvenation using acupuncture, tightens pores, improves muscle tone and
dermal contraction, while enhancing and increasing the elasticity of the skin. Acupuncture can reduce signs
of aging by strengthening and stimulating the circulation of Qi within the meridian pathways, especially those
of the face. You will look and feel more energetic, calm, vibrant and healthy.
Acupuncture treatments may be combined with herbal supplements, exercise and acupressure in order to
maximize results. Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture and TCM is virtually painless, and a non-surgical method to reduce
the signs of aging. Before using drugs or surgery to improve appearance, consider acupuncture. It is an effective, natural,
safe, drug free and painless alternative. It helps your whole body to look and feel younger.
