Franck Joly is a physician of Oriental Medicine and the creator of the highly novel and effective anti-aging face and body treatment, combining the very best that Western and Eastern medicines have to offer for true rejuvenation and healthy aging. The treatment was developed based on his intensive studies at the renowned Emperor’s College of TCM in Santa Monica, CA where he holds a Masters Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and is a frequent guest lecturer. With a specialty in “Anti-aging Constitutional Cosmetic Acupuncture,” Franck has also completed fellowships with key Doctors and Authorities of Chinese Medicine who are specialized in anti-aging at the Emperor’s College Clinic as well as at the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center’s Integrative Medicine at Disney Family Cancer Center in Burbank, CA.

Franck Joly was born in France and initially studied international business before dedicating his career to Medical Aesthetic. He then moved to Cape Town, South Africa, where he met Dr. Des Fernandes, a world leader in plastic surgery who first described the method of Percutaneous Collagen Induction and is also the founder of the medical grade skin care system known as Environ®. Franck went on to become the head of the Environ® Treatment Center and led several multi-center clinical trials, run jointly in Cape Town and Japan. These trials enabled the development of the patented DF Device for low-frequency Sonophoresis & Iontophoresis now a standard of care for dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide. During his research, Franck was also introduced to Percutaneous CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy), a highly innovative skin rejuvenation technique pioneered by Dr. Fernandes that has now become a worldwide phenomenon.
Franck moved to Los Angeles and developed the Environ® brand on the West coast for 14 years, training hundreds of dermatologists and plastic surgeons and pioneering a new generation of medical skin care products and tools. He is currently a consultant for DermaConcepts, the exclusive US distributor of the Environ® products. As their Medical Master Trainer, he offers trainings to plastic surgery and dermatology practices across the US. He also lectures regularly on anti-aging techniques at national and international plastic surgery and dermatology conferences.
“Growing up in France, I was fortunate enough to witness the very successful integration of Eastern medicine together with Western medicine. As a consequence of this important merger and collaboration, acupuncture treatments are now offered in many of the top French hospitals.
I have always believed that the future of medicine lies in a symbiotic relationship between Eastern and Western medical practices. This belief motivated me to obtain my Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine and to dedicate my career to its practice.
Today, I am excited to witness and be part of bringing this phenomenon to the United States and see the integrated treatments now offered at Cedars Sinai and UCLA Medical Centers as perfect examples of my premonition becoming reality.

3. Facial Acupuncture Method:
The signature full-body, anti-aging face and body treatment combines Eastern and Western philosophies to safely and painlessly offer a complete rejuvenation for your face and body. Based upon the wisdom of my mentor Mary Elizabeth Wakefield – who is recognized globally as the leading proponent of “Constitutional Facial Acupuncture” – the treatment will help you experience:
Only the highest quality Japanese acupuncture needles are used and precisely placed at an array of strategic acupuncture points on the face, neck and around the eyes to boost the body’s natural energies or Qi. While it may seem to be a simple act, it has many diverse benefits.
To begin with, the acupuncture needles encourage circulation of the blood, lymph and Qi, refreshing cells with key nutrients and simultaneously removing waste. Additionally, inserting the acupuncture needles promotes the release of the enzyme collagenase to break down old and misaligned collagen underlying wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Simultaneously, the skin’s fibroblasts are also stimulated leading to the creation of new collagen, which occurs 48 hours post-treatment and continues for 6 months after.
Finally, facial muscle groups are stimulated to tone and tighten creating a natural lift. These principles also serve as the foundation for a popular Western treatment known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) [1, 2].
Together, all of these processes work in concert to restore youthful vibrancy and enhance the functioning of vital organs from the inside out.
