What can be considered as simple aesthetic factors (wrinkles, cellulite, adipose depositions, skin sagging, etc.) is actually a consequence of a general imbalance involving the body's systems.
By recovering the physiological structure of the fat tissue, restoring the endocrine balance, detoxifying the extra cellular matrix, and promoting a correct metabolic functioning, can we expect to stimulate and repair the tissues' tonicity, to help soften wrinkles, reduce adipose tissue, skin sagging, cellulitis, and reduced vascularity
Many people believe that facial wrinkles are the most obvious sign of getting old with the corresponding decrease in youth, vitality and the consequent loss of self esteem. Apart from external beauty, the skin also reflects a person’s troubles, anxiety and pain.
Facial Rejuvenation is a non-surgical anti-aging solution for rejuvenating the face and revitalizing the whole body. Founded on the principles of Chinese medicine, it is a natural, noninvasive method of addressing both the outward manifestations of aging and its inner root causes.
Facial Rejuvenation reduces or eliminates fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, sagging and discoloration of the face while simultaneously supporting overall health. In general, it may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face, with results after just a few treatments. Fine lines may be eliminated and deeper wrinkles reduced. Bags under the eyes can be diminished; drooping eyelids, brow lines, sagging jowls and double chins lifted. It helps to eliminate puffiness by eliminating excess fluids and improving metabolism.
Treatments tighten pores, improve muscle tone and dermal contraction, increase collagen production and affect its distribution. Moisture in the skin and evenness of skin color will be balanced by increasing local circulation of blood and lymph to the face. Any stress that is evident in the face will be reduced.
Most importantly, Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture brings out your innate beauty and radiance. Though Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an “Acupuncture Facelift,” it is more than just a cosmetic procedure. Non-surgical face lift treatment can be performed using either acupuncture alone, or acupuncture combined with micro-current, ultrasound, and LED (light therapy). There is no downtime. It is effective, safe, and painless, and provides immediate and lasting results. It is all about balancing the body’s energy system, re-educating, and toning underlying facial muscles, and improving skin tissue.
How Does Paraffin Wax Heat Therapy Work?
Paraffin wax has a very high heat capacity, meaning it is able to absorb and retain a great amount of heat. A paraffin wax spa takes advantage of paraffin's heat-retaining capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. In technical terms, heat is transferred to the core of the affected area as paraffin goes through a phase change. As it melts, the paraffin becomes a liquid and is able to retain more heat. Then, when a hand, foot, or other area is dipped into the heated bath, the phase of the paraffin that surrounds the dipped area quickly changes into a solid. The heat that is given off is called the heat of fusion.
More simply, the heat that goes into melting the paraffin comes out when it solidifies into a comforting paraffin coating, thus transferring the heat into the affected limb. Another way to look at it is the paraffin is the medium that transfers heat from the paraffin wax bath to the painful area.
At the same time, the heat from the paraffin opens pores and increases circulation in the skin. This is why paraffin is so beneficial to skin, leaving skin softened and more radiant.
Paraffin therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying deep heat to relieve pain and stiffness. The warm paraffin also moisturizes for healthier looking, softer skin.
Warm paraffin wax treatments are fast-acting, drug-free, and versatile, providing heat therapy for many different applications from arthritis joint pain relief to salon hand, foot, and facial services.
Paraffin wax is a petroleum-based wax. When used on the skin, the paraffin wax is melted to about 120 F in a small tank called a paraffin bath, and the body part is dipped into the bath, or the wax is painted onto the skin. The skin is then wrapped in a plastic bag or warm towel for about 20 minutes. Such heat treatments are especially beneficial for the hands.
Paraffin wax as a form of mineral oil can help soften skin, so it is often used in spa treatments. In spas, aromatic or essential oils are added to the wax bath. More significantly, however, paraffin baths may help the sufferers of a serious condition called scleroderma. While scleroderma may affect internal organs, one of its common manifestations is the overproduction of the collagen fibers that give structure to the skin, causing skin to become thickened and tight. This restricts blood flow and makes movement in the joints difficult and painful. The paraffin bath warms and softens the skin and keeps joints mobile. While generally safe, paraffin wax should never be applied to skin with cuts or open wounds, nor should it be used on people who are allergic to it.
