What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture and  facial rejuvenation? Is that even possible? According to studies today and also those who have tried it out for themselves, acupuncture could help you look younger. Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world and it is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The practitioners of acupuncture stimulate certain points on the body and the most often way is by the insertion of very fine needles through the skin. In Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, acupuncture is said to control the flow of “Qi”, which is the vital energy along certain meridians or pathways.



Could acupuncture be used for facial rejuvenation?

As you may already know, acupuncture is known to be effective in relieving pain in the body such as arthritic, neck and back pain, fertility issues, digestive problems, headaches and migraines and stress and anxiety. However, could it really be a new facelift? Some acupuncturist claim that after a series of 10 acupuncture sessions (2x a week for at least 5 weeks), the skin tends to become more fair and delicate and therefore lessening the appearance of wrinkles. A Colorado acupuncturist, Martha Lucas, PhD, Lac, says that those treatments have the ability to erase fine lines, reduce skin sagging, reduce deep lines, clear or minimize the appearance of age sports and also lift droopy eyelids.


Other acupuncturist say that cosmetic acupuncture is a great alternative for women who do not want to undergo surgical procedures such as a facelift. Besides the incision and healing process, many women do not want to experience any negative side effects that may come along with surgery. However, cosmetic acupuncture is not only limited to women. The entire procedure could also work for those men who are looking to look younger.



How does cosmetic acupuncture work?

Since it is acupuncture, the treatment revolves around inserting fine needles throughout the face. It is known to free up the energy or the Qi. There are approximately 30 to 40 needles that are applied to the face. This in turn stimulates the production of elastin and collagen and the skin fills up or plumps up. Other parts of the body may also be addressed during the sessions, which could add to the face’s rejuvenation process. The entire practice of acupuncture helps in the body’s abilities to support the “facelift.”  Besides the face, acupuncture is also known to help the whole body look and feel younger and increase energy.


Acupuncture could benefit the entire human body in many ways. Besides relieving pain throughout the body, it could help you look and feel younger about your body. Cosmetic acupuncture is becoming the next big thing in the skin and body care industry. Feel free to try it out for yourself so that you could gain the advantages that it is known to bring many people in the past.
