Facial Acupuncture is a cosmetic therapy that is based on traditional acupuncture. A variety of benefits of facial acupuncture include a reduction in acne and fine wrinkles, as well as an increase in general skin texture. Facial acupuncture might be the answer if you’re seeking a potent anti-ageing therapy with few side effects.
While facial acupuncture can refer to the treatment of acupuncture points on the face for a variety of health and wellbeing issues, cosmetic acupuncture is acupuncture used for aesthetic reasons.
Results may last years with regular maintenance treatments. Maintenance treatments are recommended to be done every 4 to 8 weeks for the best results.
Cosmetic acupuncture is perfect for aging skin. Since those micro-traumas help your skin produce collagen and elastin, skin will look more filled out and youthful.
The needles may appear sharp and scary, but they aren’t actually painful. Acupuncture needles are very fine and thin, comparable to a mosquito’s bite, which most people don’t feel either. As such, most people feel almost no pain when they are inserted!
In fact, most of our customers left feedback saying they found acupuncture very soothing and relaxing. In certain cases, there might be just a tinge of soreness, which is due to the muscles being activated to stimulate blood flow. The soreness usually goes away very quickly.
Sometimes wrinkles correspond to acupuncture points on the face, which can be needled for their location and not necessarily for their function, Other times, it’s possible to needle the wrinkles themselves to release stagnation, even if they are not on standard acupuncture points.
The needle used by the facial acupuncture that is applied to your face will cause a positive micro-trauma in your skin. This positive trauma sends signals for your skin to increase the blood flow to the affected areas and naturally produce collagen. The increase in blood and oxygen to your face will not only help your skin repair itself, but many patients have found the treatment to be incredibly relaxing!
Facial acupuncture may take as much as 5 to 15 years off your face, with effects visible after as few as a single treatment (or maybe more.)
The benefits of facial acupuncture may include:
Wrinkles can be reduced or removed and fine lines can be smoothened out. Eye bags can be removed, jowls can be firmed, puffiness can be decreased, drooping eyelids can be elevated, and double chins may be reduced.
Facial Acupuncture can help make the skin seem younger, smoother, and healthier in general.
Facial acupuncture, unlike other invasive injection techniques, targets not just indications of ageing but also the skin’s general health.
One of the most significant distinctions is the time taken. Acupuncture relies on needles lingering in the same area for around 20 minutes, whereas microneedling uses tiny, super-fast pin pricks to the skin. Acupuncture only treats the places where an energy blockage is felt, but microneedling addresses the entire face.
Unlike Botox, facial acupuncture can affect the long-term health of the skin, rather than merely the surface indications of ageing.
Some results of facial acupuncture include: elasticity, firmness, fine wrinkles being minimized, and the complexion and general texture are smoother.
Treatment sessions for facial acupuncture last about 30 to 45 minutes. On the day of your treatment, wear little makeup and avoid using heavy creams or lotions.
The muscles in your face progressively lose tone as you get older, resulting in the drooping, deep wrinkling, and fatigued appearance that comes with it. Acupuncture promotes muscular action, which causes the face to lift, giving it a healthier, more invigorated, and young appearance.
As people age, their lips shrink and become paler, thus facial acupuncture can help restore their fullness and reduce the appearance of small lines around the mouth.
Facial Acupuncture can help minimize wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and drooping eyelids.
We recommend facial acupuncture treatment plans of 3 or more sessions, as well as follow-up sessions to maintain the effects.
Wrinkles form, and the skin becomes less attractive. Acupuncture on the face, on the other hand, stimulates the passage of energy that promotes collagen formation. This aids in the restoration of suppleness and brightness to the skin. It also increases blood flow, which aids in the reduction of redness and acne.
It has been shown in studies that acupuncture aids with a variety of skin issues, including acne. More large-scale investigations, on the other hand, are required. “Acupuncture is typically able to heal skin issues since it improves vitality, circulation, and detoxification, among other benefits.”
