Cosmetic Acupuncture, sometimes also called Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, has been recently described by The Times as a "viable alternative to cosmetic surgery and the "acupuncture facelift". Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive procedure designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the overall appearance and tone of the skin.
In a session lasting about one hour, very fine sterile needles are inserted into acupuncture points on the face. This boosts circulation, helps the lymphatic system eliminate toxins and stimulates the production of new collagen. Needles are inserted into the acupuncture points where they help to tighten muscles at the jaw, neck, and smile lines. Sometimes the needles are gently stimulated by an electrical current. As a result of acupuncture treatment the skin tightens and becomes smoother in appearance, fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines reduced, and bags around the neck and eyes firmed.
The Benefits of Facial Acupuncture
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and it's safe, virtually painless and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement. Unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with swelling and discoloration. While it cannot reshape your face, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that takes years off the face safely and naturally while improving overall health.
Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture showed that of 300 test cases who received facial rejuvenation, 90% noticed improvement after one course of treatments. Research shows that acupuncture stimulates the flow of blood and energy through the skin in the face, and helps to hydrate the skin, boost the skin's supply of nutrients and oxygen, and reduce the signs of ageing.
