Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural skin rejuvenation technique based on traditional Chinese medicine that stimulates the body’s healing energies and increases circulation to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic Acupuncture is now a well-established anti-aging treatment with many thousands of treatments being performed across the world, every day.
How does it work? Acupuncture restores health by regulating the flow of Qi or energy throughout the body. As we age, Qi flow decreases contributing to aging of the face and skin. Cosmetic acupuncture uses very tiny acupuncture needles to specific acupuncture points on the face. These needles are inserted shallow to the dermal layer of the skin restoring the flow of Qi. Qi is our life force and when Qi is bought to the face in this way, blood flow and cellular communication increases to produce more collagen, decreasing fine lines, wrinkles and increasing elasticity. Body points are used as well for balance of the flow of Qi. This treatment series also helps to relieve severe headaches, decrease hot flashes and reduce neck pain.
Abdominal Firming Acupuncture
Similar to Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture, this treatment instead focuses on the abdomen. There are many acupuncture channels on the abdomen. Using tiny needles inserted in acupuncture points to the dermal layer of the skin, Qi flow increases blood flow and cellular communication, enhancing firmness and tightness. Wrinkles on the abdomen may decrease as well. The Abdominal Firming Acupuncture protocol is best taken as part of a series. It has also been shown to help with digestive and OBGYN issues.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Injectables
Acupuncture injectables are becoming increasingly popular, not only as a great anti-aging treatment, but also as an alternative to botox. Using natural, homeopathic remedies of amino acids and collagen, a certified acupuncturist injects them into acupuncture points on the face at the dermal layer. These acupuncture points are a source of Qi that decreases with aging. By injecting the points using a tiny insulin size needle with the remedy, Qi is amplified, causing cellular restoration with increased collagen production, reducing lines and wrinkles with improved elasticity.
Note: The effects are of all the above-mentioned types of Cosmetic Acupuncture are cumulative, therefore, to achieve the best results, a series of treatments is recommended.
