The AcuCurrent Facial: An Eastside Acupuncture Exclusive

Do you wish your skin could regain or maintain its youthful appearance? Find out how our AcuCurrent Facial will make your wish a reality by revitalizing and brightening your skin!


Two Treatments: Japanese Acupuncture and Gentle Microcurrent Pulses

One Amazing Result: Skin that looks and feels younger – in an instant!

The face is the most unique and expressive part of the body. How beautiful we feel affects our happiness and many other aspects of our lives. Eastside Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine owner Minerva Henson developed AcuCurrent Facials because she believes all women deserve to feel radiant and happy in their own skin.

Though growing older brings gifts of wisdom and serenity, certain physical signs of aging are less desirable. Some women choose to alter these with plastic surgery. You can receive an AcuCurrent Facial and treat the symptom and the root cause at the same time.

How Does the AcuCurrent Facial Work?

The AcuCurrent Facial, an Eastside Acupuncture exclusive, combines modern microcurrent technology (popular in many luxury spas) with centuries old Japanese acupuncture for a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

Japanese acupuncture treats the underlying root causes of many common problems. Although every person’s body is different, lifestyle factors such as stress, hormonal imbalance and unhealthy diet are often related to facial flaws. Acupuncture addresses these causes head-on by harmonizing energy flow via distal points all over the body.

Gentle Microcurrent Pulses treat the symptoms while giving the face an energetic workout. Skin, muscles and connective tissue receive an instant energy boost that awakens the entire surface of the face. As the underlying muscles tighten, facial features are firmed and toned. The current invigorates cellular reproduction, resulting in higher quality new skin cells. As fibroblast is stimulated in the connective tissue, better collagen and elastin are produced to make the face look and feel much younger.

AcuCurrent Facial vs. Moisturizers

Most over-the-counter moisturizers are topical treatments, so they can only go so far into the skin. AcuCurrent facial creams and oils smell delicious and are made to work with the microcurrent to penetrate deeper into the skin.  The deeper they go, the longer the results last.

AcuCurrent Facial vs. Plastic Surgery 

AcuCurrent Facials restore your natural beauty instead of changing your facial contour through nips, tucks and lifts. Plastic surgery is the better option if contour changes and corrections are your intention, but AcuCurrent is a safe, non-invasive and natural way to regain vitality and clear the years from your face.

Your Customized Facial Plan

Depending upon the condition of your skin, Eastside Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine will create a preventative or restorative program that is customized for your skin. Most patients enjoy two sessions per week for the first 6 weeks, and then continue with one facial 3-6 weeks. Microcurrent facials can accompany your other scheduled acupuncture procedures in the same office visit.

In addition to health and beauty, microcurrent treatments have also proven useful to treat Bell’s Palsy (temporary partial facial paralysis).

Microcurrent facials are safe for most patients, except those who are pregnant or have sensitivities to electromagnetic fields due to the presence of pacemakers or internal plates and screws. Patients with pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure or frequent migraines should consult a physician before beginning treatment. Treatment is also not recommended during a bout with a cold or flu, an allergic attack or an acute herpes outbreak.

As with any treatment and procedure, actual outcomes and the duration of results will vary by patient. Age, physical condition and other lifestyle factors will contribute to the achieved results.

Did You Know?

The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had noticeable effects after only one treatment.
