Cosmetic Acupuncture for Facial Rejuvenation
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture is a form of treatment that uses tiny needles on the face and body to enhance and renew your looks. Based upon the same principles of Oriental Medicine that allow acupuncture to treat a variety of pain and internal conditions, Cosmetic Acupuncture can provide a natural way to reduce wrinkles and support a healthy appearance.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have always owned a focus on health and longevity. In ancient China, the Empress and Emperor’s concubines made use of acupuncture and herbal medicine in order to maintain their beauty of their age. In addition, facial diagnosis has been an important part of Chinese Medicine from its earliest beginnings, approximately 5,000 years ago. Each of the major organs in the body manifests their state within your complexion; by identifying and correcting imbalances, your health and appearance can both improve.

How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work ?
During the Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment for facial rejuvenation, thin sterile needles will be inserted into the face and body to adjust the flow of energy. Additionally, these facial needles are able to increase the tone of the facial muscles, pulling the skin tight and flattening wrinkles. The local insertion of needles into the superficial layers of the skin has been shown to increase collagen production in the local area providing the skin greater elasticity and a more youthful appearance. There is usually no pain and only a mild distending feeling at the sites of needles insertion during the treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatment Protocol
Remember, Cosmetic Acupuncture is not a instant facelift, but a gradual improvement of your skin’s condition and facial muscle tone over the treatment course. While many can notice immediate changes after the first treatment, Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments for facial renewal are commonly offered in treatment sets to increase the quality of the results.
A typical protocol provides treatment two times per week for approximately 5 weeks, for 10 total treatments. Each treatment lasts approximately 60-70 minutes.
While the results can last several years, monthly maintenance visits are recommended.
The acupuncturist may also include body acupuncture points during the treatment to support your facial complexion, as well as manage other health complaints. Acupuncture treatment can also help reduce stress, insomnia, hot flashes, anxiety, pain, and many other conditions during your sessions. Improving other aspects of your health will support the benefits of your facial rejuvenation.
