Living in a world of anti-aging treatments acupuncture is a natural tool of the anti-aging combat. Patients assert by what is being described as a holistic alternative, claiming cosmetic acupuncture helps them look younger while boosting their health and well-being. People are looking for natural solutions to the ageing process when they don’t really want to inject substances into their bodies; as an anti-aging treatment, facial acupuncture employs the techniques of traditional Chinese medicine coupled with modern-day science, the goal is to restore the balance of energy which flows throughout the body, while increasing the production of natural collagen in the skin.





Acupuncture’s has been on the rise for over four decades, and it is now considered an effective way of treating a multitude of conditions ranging from depression, addiction, back pain, migraines, arthritis and so on, and because acupuncture is believed to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen fibers, improve circulation, and relax muscles, it has been used throughout Asia for centuries as means to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful look.



According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine, the appearance of the face is a representation of the health and balance of a person’s internal organs, so as these organs are strengthened the face shows improvements accordingly.  This is why cosmetic acupuncture goes far beyond aesthetic repair.  Cosmetic acupuncture treatment uses super-fine needles to target underlying health issues that may be contributing to a deficient facial appearance. Furthermore, the needles are placed into problem areas on the face and neck, such as wrinkles or acne scarring, to promote nutrient-rich blood flow, stimulate muscle activity and toning, and encourage collagen growth, which all contribute to a more youthful and healthy-looking appearance. The modern twist on these ancient techniques involves the use of acupuncture needles to boost collagen production, in the same way as micro needling or laser treatments. Treatment involves the use of super-fine needles to target any problem areas. The needles are left in place for 20 to 30 minutes. Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe procedure; rare, and minor, side effects include slight bruising or spot bleeding at the needle site. When an acupuncture needle is inserted into specific points on the face, especially in areas which have experienced an excessive loss of collagen; the disruption in the skin tissue causes the body to respond sending collagen-building cells to the area. This is a great solution for those who want a natural anti-aging treatment.





Acupuncture is a treatment that can simultaneously stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage, improve muscle tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; skin cells receive the proper level of oxygen and nutrients delivered through increased blood cells to correct problem areas.

Cosmetic acupuncture is not meant to be an immediate or long-term cure-all. While many people report immediate results, for others it can take several treatments before achieving a visibly significant improvement in skin appearance and texture. With that being said, facial acupuncture is not for treating deep wrinkles in one specific area but most effective when used to improve the overall look, texture, elasticity, and glow of the skin, the profound effects are often reported by patients that have improved digestion, better quality sleep, reduction of hot flashes, elimination of mild depression and anxiety, with more energy in them, and an overall sense of wellbeing.

With cosmetic acupuncture or any cosmetic treatment for that matter is never going to be like looking as in their 20s, but at l recovering the overall body energies of youth. The patient is actually getting younger from the inside out because the body rejuvenating energy is being stimulated and strengthened.






Aesthetics that can be corrected also with acupuncture


A swollen face is likely a sign of larger issues, acupuncture is designed to address. If you have digestive problems, allergies, or poor lymphatic drainage, what you may see in the face is puffiness, acupuncture not only will we correct it, it will adjust it from the inside

Acupuncture’s rebalancing effect has a way of calming breakouts, whether chronic or caused by monthly hormonal fluctuations. Acne as a reflection of internal heat and the digestive system can adjust premenstrual breakouts through acupuncture as well by treating the heat that arises in the body during certain times of the month.

Similar to acne, it’s about adjusting that internal balance within, Rosacea in Chinese medicine is often about digestion, by clearing up the internal digestive issues, it really helps to minimize redness and irritation in the skin tissue.

Dull Skin
Acupuncture can boost a lackluster complexion both directly by triggering local healing processes in the face and indirectly, by recalibrating body systems. Stimulating skin circulation, lymphatic drainage, and collagen production, but also, dullness can often be a lack of energy flowing through the body properly. Acupuncture can raise the energy and intern body balance

Tighten and Tone

Few needle pricks can help to firm things up. Acupuncture is absolutely amazing for muscle tone and deeper tissue tone in the body It will help to relax the deeper tissue muscles that are too tight, and tighten the ones that are loose. It’s really good for lifting and sculpting the cheeks and jawline, and even for lifting eyebrows.

Please note that only a trained and certified acupuncturist should give you cosmetic acupuncture or any other acupuncture.
