What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture is acupuncture treatment focused on the face. The goal is to achieve physical and mental health through the recovery and maintenance of the face’s skin and tissue with the goal of achieving beauty. Health through cosmetic acupuncture treatment has the ability of returning your body to a normal and natural state of balance.
How does acupuncture work for the face?
Facial skin and tissue is not as thick or large as the skin on rest of the body. The body’s skin has a dermis layer and cells called fibroblasts. These cells produce the components that make up the dermis layer, such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. During cosmetic acupuncture, the dermis layer is injured, and in the process of healing the injury, the body will create white blood cells and activate elastic fibers. The healing process will eventually increase collagen and the firmness of the skin. In many cases, 40 to 100 acupuncture needles are inserted according to the practitioner’s recommendation for healthcare. It is also important to note that skin around the eyes is incredibly thin, so there is a possibility of internal bleeding occurring after treatment. If you wish to receive cosmetic acupuncture, we will ask you about your plans and future events to ensure we discuss the treatment in detail before proceeding.
