The main result people experience is a bright complexion. It’s as though the skin has been awakened from a long, deep sleep, all the fresh blood and oxygen flood the face brings it back to life.
But unlike Botox or dermal fillers, facial acupuncture isn’t a quick fix of any kind. The focus is to create long-term changes in the health of the skin and body, not short-term quick fixes. The other mechanism of facial acupuncture is to create scar tissue under the skin, which mean to extent the wrinkles and shoal the lines. By this, facial acupuncture can be a better collagen stimulation, a brightened skin tone, reduced jaw tension, and a softer appearance overall on top of health benefits like reduced anxiety and tension.
One study found that the majority of people saw improvements after just five sessions of facial acupuncture, but we recommend 15 treatment and twice a week to see optimum results. After that, you can go into what she calls a “maintenance stage,” where you get the treatment every month.
“It’s a great treatment for those who are really busy and on the go,” most client say. “It allows the body time to relax and restore.”
The most common side effect for facial acupuncture — or really any acupuncture — is bruising.
It only happens about 20 percent of the time, but is still a possibility, who adds that bruising should heal before the week is up. To avoid bruising and instead achieve the best results, the person receiving the treatment should be in good health for maximum healing capabilities. This is why people with bleeding disorders or uncontrolled type 2 diabetes shouldn’t seek this treatment.
