Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation

Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation

Acupuncture has been used to treat skin complaints and reduce signs of aging for centuries. In fact, facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, has a recorded history going as far back as China's Sung Dynasty (960AD - 1270AD), when the Empress and the Emperor's concubines used it to engender beauty and good health.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture can improve muscle tone, increase collagen production, tighten pores and boost circulation and moisture in the skin. Moreover, when acupuncture is used to create overall balance within the body, the physical, mental and emotional patterns that contribute to aging are addressed, helping you look and feel younger.

The theory behind facial acupuncture is that hair-thin needles inserted along wrinkles and frown lines stimulate energy and relax the muscles. This leads to a tightening of the facial muscles, which decreases sagging of the facial skin, and an increase in the production of collagen, filling in fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation:
Increases the production of collagen and elastin
Improves muscle tone (preventing further aging and wrinkles)
Improves local lymph and blood circulation
Softens or erases fine lines and wrinkles
Reduces the depth of deeper lines
Decreases bags (puffiness) under the eyes
Reduces or eliminates acne and rosacea
Provides a consistently smoother and brighter face
To look and feel years younger, facial rejuvenation acupuncture offers less risk, expense and recovery time than medical alternatives. While this procedure cannot reshape facial features, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that can take years off one's face safely and naturally while improving overall health.
