Medicine, it is used to help treat a myriad of conditions, including body pains, headaches, and
even insomnia. Only in recent years has Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, or “cosmetic acupuncture” as it is
sometimes known as, been in the spotlight.What is it?
Facial acupuncture is a part of traditional acupuncture- it not only addresses any signs of
aging but also aims to improve your skin’s overall health. We put needles into specific points
on the face to help stimulate collagen production and improve skin quality and brightness while
also using body points to improve immunity and the balance and flow of qi.
Essentially, it’s a natural and safe alternative to facial fillers and Botox treatments!
So how does it work?
Basically, the needles’ physical act of puncturing the skin causes positive micro-traumas,
which in turn, sends signals to the body to produce more collagen to help heal that area. The
micro-traumas help to improve blood circulation and increase healing speed, which gives a
glow to the skin after the treatment, and is also what we have to thank for stimulating collagen
production, which helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
What should you expect?
The main result of the patient’s experience is a much brighter complexion, while some have even
noticed a slight facelift. The recommended amount of sessions is about 6 treatments for once
a week for optimum results. Afterward, we recommend monthly maintenance upkeep.
Facial acupuncture can be an excellent option if you don’t want Botox, and are looking for a
a natural, holistic way to reduce those fine lines and wrinkles, brighten your complexion, reduce
redness and acne, and especially improve your overall health!!
