I found this link today talking of acne scars and acupuncture:
I looked online and found a few acupuncturists in my area that offer something called "facial rejuvenation". Perhaps this is an area to explore with them. I realize the Cora Therapy is apparently not with acupuncture needles but this may be an area to discover.......
No, unfortunately I can't travel to Korea-it is just too far for me. If I were single I would absolutely consider it!! I'm just hoping the Western world gets wind of this and realizes what a money maker this would be, for it seems like that is the main motivator in the Western world, right?
JaceCali wrote that his Dr was considering coming overseas so perhaps the person that answered my email is unaware of this venture.
Many blessings to those of you that CAN go to South Korea....this therapy seems phenomenal.
I hired a tutor that speaks Korean help me find out more about Cora Therapy. This is what he translated for me:
01 What is Cora Therapy?
Cora therapy promote the regrow of skin on its own. After a treatment, the redness of a scar goes away within a week if it is on face and more treatments are needed to accelerate the healing process. This therapy is effective treating acne scars, chicken pox scars, and any other kinds of scars.
02 Cora Therapy of collagen regeneration capacity will rise rapidly.
Treatment of chicken pox scars and acne scars caused by the collapse of the dermis through the promotion of blood flow accelerates the nutrition of the skin tissue, skin problems, depressions or indentations to solve.
Cora Therapy procedure scars, indentations or depressions on top of each other and filled up to a height equal to the surrounding normal skin.
You can get almost no side effects so it a safe and effective treatment.
I also had him translate a letter to the clinic explaining how I live in the States and wondering if they offer their services outside of South Korea and this is their response:
Thank you and we appreciate your interest all the way from the United States.
Cora Therapy treatment can only be done through Rodham clinic. In other words, you can only get the treatment in South Korea.
The treatment consists of a procedure using a single needle. This is how the procedure was able to be published in paper. The treatment interval is twice a week and usually for 5 to 6 sessions. It requires a period of at least three months. A deep scar may require additional treatments and time to fully heal.
If you have been taking care of your skin and it is relatively in a good shape, you may be able to reduce a number of treatments.
The therapy uses one needle to treat a scar and builds up new skin step by step. This will allow the treated scar to reach to the height of the surrounding skin. We do not inject any chemicals but provide an environment that can help skin to regrow. Therefore, there is almost no side effects and makes it easy to take care of after treatment. If you were to receive a Cora Therapy treatment, you can wash your face right afterwards or the next day if you would like a synergy treatment. The synergy treatment allows for even skin color, promote skin regeneration and strengthening keratin, shrink pores, and help manage sebum.
The therapy usually costs between 350 and 700 US dollars. We would need to examine you first in person to be able to give an exact quote for the treatment price. In case if you are interested, getting a treatment for one scar is between 35 to 55 dollars and can be up to 110 dollars if it a big scar. If there are many scars, we quote the price based on the parts of the face that are going to be treated.
Once again, thank you for your interest and have a good day.
