How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture & Facial Rejuvenation Work?

Facial acupuncture consists of inserting very fine needles into 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, and reduces puffiness 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. Also effects on the nervous system can cause long lasting treatment results. The needles can also create general positive effects on the skin.  This is a much less invasive way of getting the look you like than either surgical or chemical practices.

There is a separate protocol if work 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 of the overall health treatment 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.

Before your cosmetic facial acupuncture series, you identify what you like about your face or neck. Then you can identify specific areas that you would like to improve. You can expect the insertion of very fine needles, about the size of a human hair, into strategic acupuncture points.
