What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Acupuncture, increases circulation of blood in the face and body using acupuncture needles or a microneedling device. Enhanced blood circulation to the face moistens the skin and encourages production of collagen and elastin. As a needle is inserted into the area, collagen expands due to the micro-trauma, and the wrinkle diminishes. This process firms the skin, fills in wrinkles and promotes a youthful glow. Added benefits can include stimulating the immune response, reduced inflammation, reduced jaw tension, and relieving anxiety.
Facial acupuncture also addresses internal conditions because the meridians and TCM organ systems are Also found on the face.
