Acupuncture for Facial Rejuvenation
In recent years cosmetic acupuncture (facial rejuvenation) has become popular in the West. However, enhancing beauty and preserving a youthful appearance by inserting very fine needles in specific facial points has been normal practice in China and other Asian countries for centuries.
Cosmetic acupuncture has become known as the ‘Non-Surgical Facelift’ and like traditional acupuncture, it aims to balance the body’s energy and create a sense of wellbeing. The superficial insertion of the needles helps to increase the local circulation of qi (oxygen) and blood to the face and stimulate collagen production, which helps fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion which results in facial rejuvenation.
Cosmetic facial acupuncture is a natural, beauty therapy that helps combat signs of ageing and improves skin health and skin conditions.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. These effects included: the skin becoming delicate, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation.
