Facial acupuncture is an ancient healing art that is currently all the rage among Hollywood’s elite, and its popularity is understandable.
The concept of this non-surgical cosmetic treatment is to obtain natural younger and healthy skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles only by using the finest and hair-like needles to stimulate the meridian in order to increase the blood circulation, relax or tighten the facial muscles, enhance collagen production and tone for a vital and youthful facial appearance.

During each treatment, medical acupuncture is used, meaning that body needles are placed to work on stress levels, pain, insomnia, or anything else that is currently bothering the patient. This helps immensely in the outcome of radiant skin as the body is all connected.

Acupuncture and Facial Acupuncture:

To explain acupuncture in a nutshell, it is viewing every part of your body as a whole. So when your face is getting needles, your body is as well to enhance the results; by placing needles into body points that will balance your hormones, stress, digestion, sleep and immune system, your skin will start to glow. That means that treating the face is part of it and treating the rest of the body completes it. When your entire body is in balance, so is your skin.
