Beauty From Within
Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation or Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical procedure that will help rejuvenate and revive your whole body. It will improve blood and energy circulation, nourish your skin, and increase collagen and elastin production to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging and dull skin.
As we age, the inner layer of our skin loses collagen, and as a result, our skin becomes less supple and firm. According to research by the Korean Society of Korean Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine, cosmetic acupuncture is acupuncture done to the head, face, and neck for cosmetic purposes without surgery or injection.
What are the benefits?
According to research, FCA enhances facial elasticity by restoring resting mimetic muscle tone. An MRI study on the participants found that the facial mimetic muscles gradually straighten and shorten with age because of increased resting muscle stone. Thus, they hypothesized that FCA could improve facial elasticity.
This type of acupuncture promotes circulation to the skin and refreshes our complexion while enhancing skin elasticity. Improved circulation can lead to increased collagen production, thus having fewer fine lines, better skin tone, and lifting saggy or baggy eyes. It also enhances our pore's health and promotes UV exposure or sun damage resistance.
It can also help treat some skin diseases such as acne, rosacea, and eczema. The needles inserted also help in dealing with inflammation.
Other benefits would include relaxation. The treatment could initiate the release of our endorphins, which are our brain's "feel-good" chemicals.
