Updated: Jan 28
Cosmetic facial acupuncture is the new trend for women willing to keep it natural and young. Discover the mechanism of action and circulatory system, the meridien theory, the effects on the nervous system and all the benefits of cosmetic acupuncture.
Cosmetic acupuncture is getting fans, from people getting older and seeing their skin loosing elasticity and brightness, young women who are taking their health and longevity seriously to women who are looking for a natural anti-aging cosmetic treatment.
When the needles are inserted into specific locations of the face, it creates microtrauma which triggers the body healing process. The body activates the production of collagen and elastin at these specific areas. Facial acupuncture also stimulates the facial muscles to improve their tone and conditioning.
The insertion of the needles stimulates the lymphatic and circulatory systems to deliver blood, nutrients, oxygen and newly produced collagen and elastin to the skin cells. Guasha massage and the jad stone are used to promote a greater blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Chinese medicine meridiens run throughout the whole body from the top of head to the sole of the feet. Acupuncture restores the balance within these meridiens and associated organs to nourish the body and brighten the face and complexion.
The stimulation of acupuncture points helps restore the energy flow smoothly and alliviate stress and axiety altogether. It works to ease stress by releasing endorphins, which are natural pain-killing chemicals in the brain.
