We use many forms and modalities to help you achieve maximum results. Some of the modalities that we use are:
Facial Toning & Rejuvenation. This cosmetic treatment is an extension of traditional acupuncture. It’s said to naturally help make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier. And unlike injection procedures, facial acupuncture addresses not only signs of aging, but also the skin’s overall health.
Cosmetic Acupuncture can enhance the production of collagen via micro-injury to the skin, increase blood flow, stimulate immune responses that reduce inflammation, and activate any number of functional points that have various responses, like reducing jaw tension or relieving anxiety.
Facial Muscular Toning (FMT) is a process to electrically stimulate the muscles of the face to increase their tone. The face is the only place in the body where muscles are attached directly to the skin. Like any muscle in the body, it weakens if not exercised, resulting in skin sags and wrinkles. Facial toning stimulates the muscles of the face and neck by lifting, holding, and releasing them. FTM is delivered by a professional with knowledge of neuromuscular stimulation and facial lympho-drainage.
Magnet Therapy stimulates blood and lymph circulation, and increases the number of white blood cells in the skin. This helps rejuvenate the skin by removing waste products and cellular debris, and increasing collagen formation.
Magnet therapy is widely used in Eastern Europe, Russia and Japan, because it is a safe and versatile tool to help the body’s healing process. At Biotherapy, we use magnetic point massage, and permanent and pulsating magnetic field therapy for cellular regeneration (anti-aging effects).

Questions & Answers
1.What will the treatments feel like?
They are comfortable and safe. You will be relaxed, drift asleep, and feel energy flow to your skin. (Some patients experience a mild tingling sensation.)
2.How long will it take for me to see results?
Some individuals will see an immediate change in their skin. As with most intensive treatments, improvement is increasingly obvious over time. Most people see some results after only three sessions and noticeable changes after 10-15 sessions. How rapidly a person improves depends significantly on his or her age, skin condition, and lifestyle choices. For example, non-smokers usually see results more quickly than smokers, and people who drink a lot of water do better than those who do not.
3.How many treatments will I need?
The facial skin toning and rejuvenation procedure is recommended two to three times a week in a typical series of sessions. We will set up a series based on your individual skin condition. Then, we usually suggest a maintenance program with treatments every three to four weeks.
4.What is the best age to start the treatment?
There is no best age. We will recommend a facial skin toning and rejuvenation series that is right for your age, skin condition and lifestyle. Our alternative medicine doctor can recommend the appropriate number of sessions after the initial consultation.
5. Who is not a Candidate for treatment?
Anyone who has a pacemaker.
