Otherwise known as facial acupuncture or facial rejuvenation acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture is a traditional health practice that is performed to target the signs of skin aging and stress, bringing back a youthful glow. It is increasingly becoming popular especially among people who are finding the quality of their skin is starting to drop slightly and want a little enhancement without having to undergo harsher chemical treatments such as Botox just yet. As our main focus is improving the overall health of the skin younger women and men are also finding it really works well for them as well. Here are the benefits from having this treatment:
1. It is safe.
There are no side effects from having cosmetic acupuncture. This procedure is chemical-free, and you do not have to worry about lumps, scarring or botched procedures.
2. It enhances circulation.
As you age, your blood circulation tends to get sluggish, and acupuncture, in general, helps address this issue by enhancing blood flow in your skin. It can bring nutrients, increase collagen and elastin production and bring ‘life’ back to the skin. It can give you a better skin tone, reduce fine lines and lift baggy eyes and sagging jowls.
3. It brings you to a state of relaxation.
Acupuncture boosts the release of endorphins—brain hormones that make you feel good—which means that the procedure will help you relax. From the time you are on the table for hours to the days after the treatment, you will feel rested and less stressed.
4. It offers a chance to address other health issues.
During a cosmetic acupuncture session, you would be asked about any other health concern that you have. This is so because beautiful skin is associated with good overall health—you will not be able to have glowing skin if your health is suffering. Moreover, this type of acupuncture is effective in the treatment of eczema, acne and rosacea.
5. It has no downtime.
Cosmetic acupuncture does not have any downtime, where you will be able to receive treatment at any time of the day and get that glowing look and relaxed feeling.
It's important to note that this type of acupuncture is not a replacement for surgery, or Botox or injectables in terms of comparative results however it is truly an excellent natural alternative for those looking for something stronger than many facials.
