How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?
Cosmetic Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation works by balancing the functioning of the body and encouraging the flow of blood and energy to the face.
During the Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment for facial rejuvenation, thin sterile needles will be inserted into the face and body to adjust the flow of energy. Additionally, these facial needles are able to increase the tone of the facial muscles, pulling the skin tight and flattening wrinkles. There is usually no pain and only a mild distending feeling at the sites of needles insertion during the treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatment Protocol
A typical protocol provides treatment two times per week for approximately 5 weeks, for 10 total treatments. Each treatment lasts approximately 40- 60minutes. While the results can last several years, monthly maintenance visits are recommended. Remember, Cosmetic Acupuncture is not a instant facelift, but a gradual improvement of your skin’s condition and facial muscle tone over the treatment course.
The acupuncturist may also include body acupuncture points during the treatment to support facial complexion, as well as manage other health complaints. Acupuncture treatment can also help reduce stress, insomnia, hot flashes, anxiety, pain, and many other conditions during the sessions. Improving other aspects of health will support the benefits of the facial rejuvenation.
