Cosmetic Acupuncture combines the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the modern approach of facial care to create a beauty treatment like no other. Unlike typical serums, foundations, or creams, Acupuncture is the truest form of anti-aging; it works from the inside out to firm muscles, plump up the skin, brighten the complexion, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
Being both a preventative and corrective to facial aging, Cosmetic Acupuncture is truly an ultimate secret of Asian beauty. It literally slows down the aging process by bringing fresh qi and blood to the face, boosting collagen production and nourishing each and every cell. For those desiring a more holistic and natural approach to beauty and anti-aging, Cosmetic facial Acupuncture is for you.
Most people also don't realize that any licensed Acupuncturist can do facial Acupuncture for aging and beauty. Specific acupuncture points are used that are anatomically beneficial to tone the facial muscles and bring qi, blood, and moisture to the skin. To begin a facial protocol, an Acupuncturist may request you abide to a series of treatments in order to ensure the effects are the treatment will hold over time. It may be necessary to have 2-3 treatments per week over a 3-4 week period. Following that, you may typically require an additional treatment once per month or every other month as a follow up. However you will most likely notice a brighter complexion within the very first treatment! The effect after a series of treatment typically lasts 3-5 years!
Are there any side effects or risks involved with facial Acupuncture? It's pretty rare (especially in the hands of a licensed and trained Acupuncturist). Worst case scenario, a needle may prick a superficial blood vessel in the face creating a small bruise, but it is a very uncommon side effect in the hands of a skilled practitioner. Any bleeding can be compressed with a sterile cotton ball to prevent a bruise from forming.
