What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective way to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face. It can reduce the signs of aging by revitalizing the skin and providing a more youthful look to the face. Cosmetic Acupuncture will also help to rejuvenate facial tissue by increasing circulation to the area, and stimulating collagen production, resulting in a healthy glowing complexion. It is based on the ancient principles of Chinese Medicine and has been used for over 3,000 years.
By inserting very fine, hair-thin, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points on the face, there is a rush of blood circulation. The skin becomes nourished, oxygenated and moisturized, from the inside out. When there is more circulation, the body produces more collagen and this, in turn, gives the skin more tightness and elasticity, helping to reduce and/or eliminate sagging skin, wrinkles, double chin, etc.
“A 1996 report in The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 98% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin becoming tighter and lifted, improvement of the elasticity and overall rejuvenation.”
Cosmetic Acupuncture has been very popular in New York and Los Angeles in recent years. In the past, it was exclusively used by the rich and famous. Many Hollywood actresses are known to have this treatment done and super models receive acupuncture facelifts prior to photo shoots to make them “glow”. The real advantage to Cosmetic Acupuncture is that there is no risk involved, no downtime from work, and no side effects. By also using acupuncture points on the body, the circulation of blood and energy will be enhanced, thus promoting overall health and well being.
