Facial Acupuncture/ Cosmetic Acupuncture

Collagen is one of the major proteins and building blocks of skin tissue, and over time it breaks down. When you insert an acupuncture needle into the surface of the skin at the area of the collagen loss, the needle creates a mild trauma in the skin. The skin then sends in all the collagen-building and repair cells to repair the ‘trauma.’ Just like when you hurt or scrape yourself, the body’s natural ability to heal kicks in. So by strategically placing the needles into areas where there’s collagen loss, you can trigger the production of more collagen.”


It not only improves circulation, but the creation of new collagen also results in “softening of wrinkles, face-lifting, an even tone, softening of fine lines, and less creping.”  “from a traditional Chinese medicine viewpoint, this procedure tonify and lifts qi; nourishes yin, essence, and blood; strengthens digestion; and helps build post-natal qi resulting in youthful radiance in the face.”

 

Our experts will tell you that you as with any skincare regimen, you need to commit to see long-term results. We recommend doing a 10-session treatment twice a week for five weeks, consecutively. This schedule works well with your skin’s monthly renewal process. “After that, a monthly maintenance session is recommended for one year,” Ting said, most of her patients are so happy with their results, they actually continue this facial rejuvenation protocol indefinitely.

 

We would suggest to take arnica or using it topically if you’re prone to bruising. “Because the face has so many nerve endings and blood vessels, there’s always a risk of bruising (though it will be minimal),” she explains. “The needles used on the face are specifically designed to be shorter and thinner in gauge. They’re applied using tweezers to get into the crevices and fine lines of the face. But we do take a history of bruising and the use of blood thinners into consideration.”

What you should know?

Acupuncture rarely ‘hurts‘. The most that people experience is a dull ache around the base of the inserted needle, or a slight tingling feeling when the needle is inserted. Points at the extremities, like toe or finger ends, can sometimes be a little sharp, but the sensation is usually brief.
