Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese form of medicine that has been popular since ancient times. It is known for its treatment of almost everything, from physical to mental conditions.
In recent years, many patients who have used this form of therapy for their health conditions have realized that is can also have a beauty effect. From this came the rise of acupuncture facials. This facial entails using needle stimulation on specific points of the skin on the face to facilitate the re-balancing of the whole body. The pins are placed in your jaw, temple, frown lines, and other points decided by your acupuncturist. The face and skin are the primary indicators of what is going on in your body, and an acupuncture facial will benefit your skin, body, and health.
Stress Relief, Relaxation and Energy Boost
At the beginning of the session, your acupuncturist will gather information regarding your work habits, diet, allergies, mental and general health history. This report gives an account as to the state of your face and body. When inserting the needles into your facial skin, the blockages and damage to your body are gauged, and immediately relieved. The relief is followed by an energy rush and calmness in the body that remains long after the session.
Brightening Dull Skin
Acupuncture prompts a healing process in the skin. The needles trigger lymphatic drainage, collagen production, and increased circulation. They also produce a boost in energy flow in the face hence repairing dullness of the skin.
The treatment is originally designed to ease conditions such as poor lymphatic drainage, poor digestion, and allergies – conditions that cause puffiness in the face. The punctures from the needles on the skin of the face result in reduced puffiness and healing in the face, and an internal restoration of wellness.
Acne is indicated by breakouts on the surface of the skin commonly on the face. Acupuncture relieves the hormonal imbalance, internal heat and digestive problems that are internally causing the breakouts. This procedure induces a restoration of the skin cells and better-looking skin.
Rosacea bears a similarity to acne and is treated in the same way. The acupuncture restores the body’s natural balance and eases digestion functions in the body. The result is minimized redness and irritation in the skin tissue.
