Cosmetic Acupuncture Treatments: face lifting
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture (face-lift or facial rejuvenation) is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat many conditions and illnesses. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been related to the manipulation of the energy points on the body to balance and to remove blockages in the meridians (channels of blood and energy), in order to achieve health and to prevent diseases.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has attracted great attention in the last few years, especially in the big cities like New York City and Los Angeles. It used to be a treatment only for the rich and famous in Hollywood, but now everyone wants the royal treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective non surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. This specialized technique, stimulates the circulation of the blood, Qi (pronounced “Chee”) and lymph systems of the face and body. Collagen production is also stimulated by means of tiny needles that attract Qi and blood to the area. This tones, rejuvenates, promotes muscle elasticity and enlivens the skin. It tightens the muscles and softens or reduces lines and dark circles under the eyes. The treatment is focused on reducing the signs of aging, and it is applied to the areas of the face prone to wrinkles. The application of the needles is generally done across several meridian lines, including several not on the face, across which the body’s Qi flows, as well as several other acupuncture points including on the forehead, cheeks, ears, chin, around the eyes and along the wrinkles themselves.
The insertion of needles causes blood to circulate throughout the face, producing the following effects:
- Improve circulation of blood and lymph within the face
- Tighten the pores of skin
- Restore the balance of body chemicals, such as serotonin, endorphin, adrenaline and other hormones
- Enhance muscle tone
- Alleviate stress
- Facilitate collagen production
- Increase dermal contraction
Additional benefits to the treatments are stress reduction, better digestion, and improved sleep.
