What is Cosmetic Acupuncture/Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?


Cosmetic acupuncture or facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging, without injections or drugs, and with minimal unwanted side effects. It is called rejuvenation, because it is more than a cosmetic procedure - it is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to make the whole body look and feel younger.  The use of Acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). In traditional Chinese medicine, it is known as 'Chinese Medical Cosmetology'.


Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).Many meridians either begin or end on the face while some have internal branches that go to the face.Facial rejuvenation acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the face & body, which stimulates both blood & energy to the face, thereby nourishing and moistening the skin. It also increases collagen production, which fills out fine lines and wrinkles, and gives firmness to the skin, producing a healthy glowing complexion. Collagen is a protein found in skin cells which stops being produced as we are aging. A lack of collagen is responsible for wrinkles, fine lines and loss of skin elasticity.
