Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture
With cosmetic acupuncture you may notice:
- Reduced signs of aging
- Smoothing of deep lines and wrinkles
- Fading age spots
- Smoother, firmer skin
- Less puffiness and bags under the eyes
- Tighter facial and neck muscles
Cosmetic acupuncture works to make you look younger by activating the body’s own healing mechanisms. It reduces and softens wrinkles by increasing the production of elastin and collagen. It takes away that “stressed” look by relaxing facial muscles. It improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin by promoting blood and lymphatic circulation. It rehydrates the skin by stimulating the sweat and sebaceous glands. It helps exfoliation by encouraging the proliferation of new skin cells.
Because Chinese acupuncture points are used to stimulate the flow of qi or energy and remove energy blockages, clients may also experience pleasant side effects such as improved immune system functioning, and less headaches, neck aches or other body aches.
