The initial treatment package is comprised of two appointments, usually spaced about a week apart. Having two sessions allows the acupuncturist to do a more comprehensive treatment with the first visit consisting of consultation and initial treatment, while the second visit allows for further focused treatment to build on the effects of the initial visit and ensure you get the maximum benefit from the acupuncture.
Your initial visit will last up to one and a half hours. In this time your acupuncturist will discuss with you which areas of your face you are most looking for treatment on as well as gathering information from you on your medical and family history; your systems or functions (e.g. sleep, appetite, digestion, etc); and your physical condition to formulate an overall picture of your health. This will allow your acupuncturist to assess what constitutional acupuncture would be best to include in your treatment, in order to most effectively enhance the results of the facial acupuncture.
