Is Gua Sha Replacing the Facelift?

Written by

Anti-Aging Expert and Inventor of Gua Sha Facial, Dr. Ping Zhang Says Yes

Men and women searching for the proverbial fountain of youth may not have to go under the knife or endure painful, costly injections in their quest for younger looking skin. Dr. Ping Zhang, an expert in anti-aging Traditional Chinese Medicine, a renowned acupuncturist, a certified herbalist, and massage therapist with more than 20 years of clinical experience specializing in facial rejuvenation acupuncture, acupressure and Chinese Herbal Medicine, recommends Gua Sha - a traditional Chinese treatment that is used to reduce wrinkles, sagging, dark circles and more.

Gua Sha (pronounced GWA-SHA) is a Chinese technique that includes the use of a small medicinal board tool to gently massage, manipulate and stimulate certain energy points along the face and body to promote Qi (energy) flow and remove toxins. Its beauty benefits include reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, dark eye circles, puffy eyes, age spots, discolorations and an overall dull complexion.
Dr. Ping Zhang is the inventor of the anti-aging facial Gua Sha, namely, the Nefeli™ Gua Sha Facial which entails performing a restoring function to awaken the skin’s own healing ability to regenerate, firm and lift the whole face. It activates the inner vitality of the face in multiple levels: the facial fascia, the facial muscle, the different skin levels - all will be stimulated to create the youthful appearance of facial contours, smooth out winkles and lift sagging from neck and jaw line. Dr. Zhang’s techniques activate the acupuncture needle points and more without using needles. The health benefits include the promotion of lymph drainage, detoxing the channel system, restoring the normal Qi and blood flow of the facial area.
From an anti-aging perspective, it is not just a skin deep treatment for temporary effect. It is an energy workout to promote youth and balance from within. The technique must be performed with cream and its effect is optimized when combined with herbal infusion designed for the technique allowing the nutrients and healing power of the specialty beauty and medicinal herbs from the cream to be unleashed and delivered. Dr. Zhang’s specially designed Herbal Infusion system for Gua Sha is made for the treatment and proven to be very effective supported by years of clinical experience.
