Cosmetic acupuncture also known as facial acupuncture is a therapy that rejuvenates and reactivates your skin in a natural and conservative way by using thin acupuncture pins upon the skin. Cosmetic acupuncture therapy has been used for many centuries across the world to enhance beauty and to minimize the signs of aging as it is a completely natural and holistic anti-aging treatment.
During cosmetic acupuncture therapy, your skin is treated with precision; specifically, the crucial points which are considered to create an overall balance are enhanced by inserting thin disposable needles into the acupoints on the face or other parts of the body. The therapy helps to combat the sign of aging and treats multiple other skin conditions to provides you a revitalizing outcome.
Your skin is the mirror of your health. When you look at it, you can come to many conclusions that are related to your health. Many diseases are primarily associated with the changes that are detected on the appearance of your skin.
The skin is a critical part of the human body that is exposed to countless external influences on a daily basis and it is a barrier of your body from the outside world. Countless factors, both physical and chemical as well as climatic factors that are constantly changing leave traces on your skin and thus contribute to its premature aging, especially your facial skin. Causes are many but accurate solutions are very few.
The skin acts as your body’s physical barrier that also participates to support the innate immunity which means taking care of the skin is of utmost importance. The epidermis, a layer of skin protects against the penetration of microbes, chemical irritants, toxins, absorbs and blocks solar energy, ionizing radiation and also prevents loss of water from the body but cosmetic acupuncture, on the other hand, stimulates your skin with a variety of techniques that penetrates multiple layers of your skin to provide you with long term benefits including, skin longevity, beauty, skin health and many other advantages mentioned below.
Very thin, hair-like disposable acupuncture needles are strategically placed by a therapist at multiple points on your face which results in increasing the local production of elastin and collagen that strengthens the structure of human skin, the needles also stimulate the circulation of the Qi, blood, and lymph on the face and under the skin, improves muscle tone, encourages brightening of the eyes and tightening of the pores.
This can result in an improvement of facial tissue and give a firm line, smoothness, and refreshment to your face and overall skin.
The acupuncturist at HealthHolistic chooses a point specifically to achieve improvement in your whole constitution, to make you feel a sense of wellbeing within your Face, Body, Spirit, and mind. The therapy helps you feel healthier, less stressed, better sleep patterns, improved vision, feel balanced, and most importantly allows your inner beauty to shine.
Your skin type continuously develops throughout life. Oily skin through puberty sometimes becomes dry and even the normal skin may become dry as you age. When aging, all skin types lose volume and density, fine lines and wrinkles appear and changes in pigmentation occur. Understanding and measuring these signs of aging helps determine the condition of your skin which cosmetic acupuncture can support and enhance to a very high extent.
Once the acu-needles are inserted at specific acupuncture points on the face, there is a significant increase in blood circulation to the areas around the needles. This increase in blood flow helps to nourish, oxygenate, and moisturize the skin – resulting in a healthier, more youthful complexion. Another benefit of increased circulation to the face is that it causes the body to produce more collagen. Collagen is the protein that helps to improve the skin’s elasticity. Along with these, there are many other advantages because of which you should definitely consider cosmetic acupuncture for your skin.
Some of the benefits that you can get from cosmetic acupuncture treatments include:
