In recent years, the popularity of cosmetic acupuncture has increased significantly. It is a modality that can not only enhance your physical appearance, but also your overall health. Cosmetic Acupuncture has the ability to improve a variety of skin conditions that are well documented in clinical studies.
Facial acupuncture is based on principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cosmetic acupuncture, unlike traditional facelifts, is a whole-body treatment, therefore a person’s overall health may also benefit. In the Traditional Chinese Medicine view, a person’s face is affected selectively by his or her internal organs.
Facial features reflect the vitality of certain organs, and as internal organs are fortified, one’s face reflects the improvement. Besides addressing a patient’s condition holistically, the practitioner will work locally, inserting painless, ultra-fine needles into and around specific wrinkles, acu-points or muscle points, depending on the technique employed.
Our skin has endured much stress, sun damage and exposure to environmental toxins for many years and the damage cannot be undone that quickly. The gradual remedy of cosmetic acupuncture may offer a reduction of fine lines and the softening of others after only a few treatments. Patients may also experience the firming of cheeks and reduction of under-eye swelling.
The benefits of facial rejuvenation acupuncture include softer, smoother skin, reduction in wrinkles and a complete body health and relaxation treatment. Each patient will respond differently according to their existing lifestyle and skin care regimes, and any potential scars.
This treatment takes time, has lasting effects, encourages the natural production of collagen, enhances a glowing complexion, and is chemical and surgical free.
Generally speaking, the recommendation for cosmetic acupuncture to have amazing results is a series of 10 treatments within a 5 week time period.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is likely a great option for anyone who wants to see improved skin tone, smoother looking skin + a bright and glowing complexion! After a series of sessions, you will also see a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, double chin, sagging jowls, puffiness, and drooping lids. This modality is also a fantastic for slowing down aging of the skin.
The best candidates for facial rejuvenation are people in their 20s through to their 60s who want to reduce the signs of aging and improve their vitality for a more relaxed, healthy appearance to their face.
