How It Works

Facial acupuncture uses small intradermal needles to penetrate the skin to break down scar tissue from fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates collagen production.  When small intradermal needles are inserted underneath the epidermal layer of the skin, the body senses it as “trauma” to the skin. Henceforth, the body will start recruiting nutrients and increasing its own blood supply to the skin. The skin then starts the “healing” process and produces more collagen, fibrin, and elastin molecules. As a result, you see a younger and more rejuvenated face. As acupuncture is known as the medicine that treats the whole person, the Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture course of treatments not only addresses the causes of aging and stress signs that show on the face, it also addresses the whole body’s health and underlying causes of aging.
