Cosmetic Acupuncture naturally helps make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier.
Cosmetic acupuncture is an extension of traditional acupuncture. This treatment can make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier. Unlike injection procedures, facial acupuncture addresses not only signs of aging, but also the skin’s overall health.
It works internally to optimize your health while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of your skin.
On the face, the acupuncturist will insert 40 to 70 tiny and painless needles. As the needles puncture the skin, they create wounds within its threshold, which are called positive microtraumas. When your body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode. This is the same idea microneedling uses to get bright, anti-aging results — except acupuncture is a bit less intense, averaging about 50 punctures. Microneedling applies hundreds of pricks through a rolling device.
These punctures stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing skin from the inside out. This helps even out your complexion and promote your skin’s glow. The positive microtraumas also stimulate the production of collagen. This helps improve elasticity, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
