Facial acupuncture involves a deep holistic approach toward improving the body’s appearance and overall health. While using smaller needles commonly used for acupuncture treatments, facial acupuncture allows you to gain a better understanding of how to manage the common conditions that occur on your face by learning their underlying causes. Here are some of the major benefits that facial acupuncture can provide.

Improves Qi Flow

One of the primary focal points of facial acupuncture is to improve and restore the flow of Qi, an energy that is essential toward our health and wellbeing. Facial acupuncture helps to address where the blockages of Qi are present.  Qi mobilizes the effect of acupuncture from one acupoint to the rest of the body. The removal of these blockages can better prevent the occurrence of illness.

Facial Acupuncture is an Effective Acne Treatment.

Facial acupuncture helps to determine the underlying root causes for acne. According to the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acne is linked with heat and dampness that affect the organs and channels of the lungs, spleen, and stomach. Sessions of facial acupuncture can help reduce the appearance of acne and its internal causes. Facial acupuncture also tightens pores and reduces inflammation. In order to maintain the results of your facial acupuncture session, it’s important to adhere to any suggested lifestyle or dietary guidelines provided by your acupuncturist.

Facial acupuncture is an effective anti-aging solution

Facial acupuncture helps to reduce and delay the onset of wrinkles and fine lines. A greater focus is placed on points of the face that will enhance beauty from the inside and the outside. Also, facial acupuncture can help fill in the appearance of fine lines, frown lines, and smoker’s lines around the mouth.

Facial Acupuncture is a better Alternative to Botox

Compared to Botox and other cosmetic procedures, facial acupuncture improves the look of the entire face instead of one area of the face. With facial acupuncture, you also won’t be injecting chemicals or undergoing anesthesia. These two factors make facial acupuncture a safer option. Also, in many cases, facial acupuncture can be a less expensive option than Botox treatments.

Increased Facial Hydration

Facial acupuncture treatments increase blood circulation to the face and lead to improved muscle tone. In addition, treatments also reduce the buildup of harmful toxins that are commonly found in the body.

Increased Radiance

You may start to notice a glow after your first few treatments of facial acupuncture. The increased circulation and collagen production are the factors which lead to this beautiful radiant complexion. The glow you see on the outside is essentially a result of what is happening on the inside!

If you are interested in receiving facial acupuncture treatments, it is recommended that you have 10 consecutive treatments. The consistent treatments will allow you to see and feel the results  you hope to achieve.
