It promises to lift, sculpt, rejuvenate skin and fight blemishes
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is the reportedly safer alternative to surgery or Botox. This cosmetic treatment is an extension of traditional acupuncture. It’s said to naturally help make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier. And unlike injection procedures, facial acupuncture addresses not only signs of ageing, but also the skin’s overall health. The main benefit of facial rejuvenation acupuncture specifically is to stimulate blood circulation and collagen production in the dermis layer of the face, which can have an anti-ageing effect, hence why some are hailing it as the new needling treatment to rival botox. Cosmetic acupuncture encourages movement, boosting circulation, and activating your body’s natural healing responses It works internally to optimise your health while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of your skin. On the face, the acupuncturist will insert 40 to 70 tiny and painless needles. As the needles puncture the skin, they create wounds within its threshold, which are called Positive Micro-Traumas. When your body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode. These punctures stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing skin from the inside out. This helps even out your complexion and promote your skin’s glow. The positive Micro-Traumas also stimulates the production of collagen. This helps improve elasticity, minimising fine lines and wrinkles. Results are typically instant, with many claiming they see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, a glowier complexion thanks to the circulation boost, and more toned facial muscles, but the full benefits can continue to develop hours - days even - later, and most cosmetic acupuncturists recommend a course of treatments for best results.
