Stimulating an energetic flow, that involves the whole body, in favor of revitalizing facial skin.
Cosmetic acupuncture is preformed both in the face and the body. Our body has several points linked to the face both directly and indirectly. For example, points in the arms and legs which nurture the yin, the female energy, stimulate fluids and the creation of an “internal moisturizer”, “irrigate” the roots of the yin and yang, and some points help in directing blood flow toward the face. Some of the local points in the face are meridian points (i.e., situated on meridians and have functions and indications in Chinese medicine), while others are local.
In western medicine terms, the actual puncture stimulates healing process, meaning the delivery of blood, oxygen and operation of the immune system to the vicinity of the “wound” (obviously, the acupuncture needle only creates a microscopic wound and once removed it leaves no mark).
Cosmetic acupuncture is useful in treating a variety of issues – anti-aging, pigmentation, acne, puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, and generally assists in naturally balancing and revitalizing the skin, and the results are natural, beautiful and refined.
