The Benefits Of Cosmetic Acupuncture
Cosmetic Acupuncture promotes subtle, natural looking changes to the skin over time. Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include:
Reduction of fine lines:
Cosmetic Acupuncture uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to stimulate the production of collagen. With regular treatments, this natural “filler” often makes fine lines diminish or disappear completely.
Softening of wrinkles:
Over time we develop deeper creases in areas involved in repetitive facial expressions. Needles are inserted directly into these lines and creases. As the body works to repair the small trauma created by the needle, it also repairs and fills the area surrounding it.
Evening of skin tone & texture:
Cosmetic Acupuncture stimulates greater blood flow to the face, improving the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the area. This helps correct color and texture imbalances.
Reduction of under-eye bags and dark circles:
Puffiness under the eyes can have many causes, such as lack of sleep, allergies, fluid retention and hormone changes. All of these can be addressed during a cosmetic acupuncture treatment and with consistent care, both symptoms and puffiness will subside.
Cosmetic Acupuncture stimulates greater blood flow to the face, improving the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the area. This helps correct color and texture imbalances to improve complexion.
Better skin hydration:
Cosmetic Acupuncture stimulates greater blood flow to the face, improving the delivery of oxygen, fluid and nutrients to the area. The improved nourishment and hydration often produce a “dewy” appearance.
Increase circulation and vitality:
Cosmetic Acupuncture is the only anti-aging modality that improves overall health in addition to appearance. Treatments improve circulation throughout the entire body creating a more efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients. This results in a greater state of health and vitality.
Lifting & toning of face muscles:
Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points that help relax tight muscles and strengthen elongated muscles. This restores the natural function of the muscles and results in a more lifted and toned appearance.
Are There Any Risks?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a chemical-free, natural approach to anti-aging, without the side effects, risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. There is no downtime, no swelling, or redness, and you never have to worry about allergic skin reactions.
Although the majority of patients do not experience any complications, a small amount of bleeding, bruising or puffiness may occasionally occur.
Who is a Candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Most men and women looking for a natural, alternative approach to reducing the signs of aging and improve overall wellness are candidates for cosmetic acupuncture.
Those who are not eligible for Cosmetic Acupuncture include pregnant women, those with hemophilia or contagious skin diseases, those with a severe deficiency, or those who have undergone other cosmetic procedures such as injections and surgical procedures in the past 2-6 weeks.
