What are the Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture works on the effects of aging through repairing the skin by improving hydration and increasing collagen production, as well as focusing on the internal stressors that contribute to the visible signs of aging. It is a safe and natural approach to reduce aging and enhance a youthful glow. To learn more about the benefits of facial acupuncture, please read on.

How Does it Work?

As with traditional acupuncture treatments, extremely fine needles, thinner than a single strand of hair, are inserted into specific areas of your face (and also body points), based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles. Often a combination of regular sized needles are used, along with dermal needles which are even smaller, that are often inserted along deep lines.  This will cause microtrauma to the skin, effectively triggering an increase in collagen production and blood flow. The results of the acupuncture session will be nourished skin that looks brighter and more youthful.

All the Benefits

This is the only anti-aging treatment that improves overall health as well as your outward appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture improves blood flow throughout your entire body, allowing oxygen and nutrients to be delivered more efficiently. This results in greater health and increased vitality. The treatments also improve hydration, which is often what produces a dewy complexion. The increase in blood flow throughout the skin also helps to correct texture and skin colouring imbalances.

 

Because acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points, they help to relax those tight muscles while strengthening elongated muscles. The process will restore your muscle’s natural functions and create a more lifted and toned appearance. The microtrauma caused by these needles, when inserted directly into fine lines and wrinkles, will increase your skin’s collagen production and fill the surrounding areas.

 

Bags under the eyes can be caused by many factors, including a lack of sleep, fluid retention, allergies or hormonal changes. These can all be addressed through consecutive cosmetic acupuncture sessions.

Are There Any Risks?

As cosmetic acupuncture is a chemical-free treatment, you won’t experience any of the risks you would with more invasive cosmetic procedures. There is no downtime for recovering. However, because this treatment does involve needles, you may experience a bit of bleeding, slight bruising or puffiness. Often these potential side effects resolve within a day or two.

Who is the Ideal Candidate?

Anyone, men and women alike, who are looking for a natural approach to reducing physical aging symptoms and improving their overall health are the best candidates for this treatment. However, if you’re pregnant, have a contagious skin disease, experience chronic migraines or have undergone a cosmetic treatment that involved injections or surgery two to six weeks prior to your appointment, then cosmetic acupuncture is not recommended.
