How Does Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture Works?

The well-known benefits of acupuncture treatment are enhancing muscle strength and improving body energy (Qi) and blood flow, which is responsible for overall well-being. Facial cosmetic acupuncture adopts similar concepts and shares the general treatment effectiveness of acupuncture but focuses more on the skin and muscles of the face and neck. In addition, acupuncture needling creates micro-puncture on the skin and its associated deep tissues, causing positive microtrauma. It will promote Qi (energy) and blood flow in the local area, which means stimulating our body's circulatory and lymphatic systems and encouraging collagen synthesis. These positive effects bring revitalization of muscles and skin of the face and neck.
