What's Facial Acupuncture All About?
Looking beautiful both inside and out is something we all want to achieve. Fortunately, there is a technique that can do that using painless mini-needles, and it’s called facial acupuncture. Facial acupuncture is a painless procedure that renews not only the face but the entire body as well. This is because it can minimize lines and creases and at the same time, help clear acne and brighten skin tone.
For this to work, fine needles are placed in acupuncture points on the eyes, face and body to stimulate the person’s natural healing ability. As a result, this also improves your digestion, sleep quality and stress levels, all of which, we show on our faces.
Anyone can try facial acupuncture. It has been proven to reverse the signs of aging. But before you start cosmetic acupuncture, you first have to be evaluated by the acupuncturist. The acupuncturist will evaluate your age, lifestyle and diet. If everything looks good, then you can go ahead and embark on a course of treatment. Facial acupuncturists often recommends it to be done twice a week for 5 weeks. After the regular sessions, it is advisable to go back for follow up treatment once every 2 weeks for the next 2 months and then once a month later on.
After the first facial acupuncture treatment, you will usually see an increased glow to your complexion which, we in the acupuncture community, say is an increase in Qi or blood flow to the face. In the first 2-3 treatments, the face becomes more soft, the wrinkles start to disappear and the skin appears more toned. In the 5th to7th treatment, this becomes much more evident as your face looks more relaxed as though you just came back from a vacation. The end result is that you will look and feel 5 to 10 years younger.
To sum things up, facial acupuncture can do wonders for you. It can soften, and may even eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Additional benefits include improvement to your overall facial color, added luster to the skin, less tension in the face and reduced puffiness. All you have to do now is book your first appointment and give it a glow….I mean, go :)
