What is Facial Acupuncture?

Aging is an irreversible dynamic process that affects all humans. From ancient times, humankind has been interested in keeping young. Nowadays, the significance of anti-aging has changed from merely prolonging lifespan to improving healthspan.

Traditional Chinese herbal medicine has a long history in Asian countries, which have antiaging properties and could intervene aging-associated disorders. The effectiveness of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) relies on its large variety of naturally active chemicals, multiple targets for therapy, and diversity of treatment approaches. 

Acupuncture originated in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for thousands of years. During acupuncture treatments, tiny needles are gently placed along specific “acupressure points” where they interact with underlying tissues including ligaments, muscles, and nerves. This process stimulates the body’s own healing response, thus relieving pain, releasing tension, and helping to neutralize emotional imbalances.

How does Acupuncture works?

Facial acupuncture harnesses the power of positive microtraumas to increase blood flow and collagen production to the face. Positive microtraumas are essentially very tiny tears created in the skin and underlying tissues, similar to the tears created in muscle tissue while lifting weights or performing rigorous exercises. The body’s natural healing response to these microtears caused by facial acupuncture brings with it an array of benefits, including:

  • Brightened complexion
  • Reduced acne
  • Minimized pores
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced puffiness and facial swelling
  • Improved facial muscle tone
  • Reduced jaw tension
  • Reduces skin sagging
  • Improved skin texture
