How does Facial Acupuncture work?
Facial acupuncture consists of selecting very specific acupuncture points on the hairline, scalp and face to lift and firm the skin. This procedure increases the flow of blood and lymph, builds collagen, evens out skin tone, reduces puffiness under the eyes or darkness under the eyes. Often age spots can be minimized or eliminated. There can be a reduction of fine wrinkles, and a softening of more substantial wrinkles. There are also effects on the nervous system, which can mediate long lasting effects. The needles can also create positive effect that help mobilize healthier skin.
There is a separate regime if working on the jaws, chin and neck are of primary importance.
A full acupuncture treatment to support overall health is included in each session to help maintain the improvements. Some benefits might show up as reduction of mild anxiety or depression. It may reduce insomnia or hot flashes. It may improve digestion or increase your energy.
