Cosmetic Acupuncture: Natural anti-aging facial treatment
Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive alternative Traditional Chinese Medicine that uses ultra fine needles to insert into different points on the face to improve skin and to slow down the aging process of the skin. The treatment is part of a holistic approach to healing, as it is said to be able to address skin concerns as well as muscle pain and health issues like digestion or anxiety etc.
Cosmetic acupuncture works by treating various causes of aging like poor sleep, indigestion, hormonal imbalances, stress, anxiety etc all of which reflect on the face in the form of premature wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, uneven skin tone, acne etc.
By inserting needles into different points on the face and body, painless micro-trauma is created to the tissue, which in turn tricks the brain into stimulating the production of collagen and elastin that smoothes the lines and wrinkles. It also removes the block in the channels and release energy and thus helps in treating the root causes of the aging signs. It is said to help with anti-aging.
It is like microneedling but with less number of needles. Every needle that is inserted into the skin is going to activate the wound healing cascade, and that does stimulate collagen and blood flow. The microtrauma helps to encourage blood flow and increase healing speed, which ultimately gives glow to the skin.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a natural facial rejuvenation treatment. It is an excellent option for those who do not want to go for injectables like Botox.
Cosmetic acupuncture treatment involves about 30-40 needles in the face and 10-12 needles on the body, though that can vary depending on an individual’s skin and health issue. Needles are left in the skin for about 20 to 25 minutes.
The cosmetic acupuncture treatment is to be taken in a series of 10-12 sessions. 2 sessions every week for 5-6 weeks or 1 session every week for 10-12 weeks as the effects of acupuncture are cumulative and monthly maintenance treatment is required to keep up the good work.
