What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an essential part of traditional Chinese medicine, a comprehensive system of health care with a continuous clinical history of over three thousand years. Chinese medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, and bodywork, dietary therapy and exercise based on Chinese medicine principles. These therapies work with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself.

Facts about Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture is a painless method of reducing the signs of aging by inserting tiny acupuncture needles into the skin which stimulate the creation of new collagen, as well as elastin fibres. The date of origin goes back to 770 – 221 BC.

It is a safer alternative to surgery or other cosmetic injectables such as Botox or dermal fillers. It helps the skin to look younger, smoother and healthier naturally as it addresses not only signs of aging, but also the overall health of the skin.

Unlike Botox or dermal fillers, facial acupuncture isn’t a quick fix as its focus is to create long-term changes in the health of the skin and body. Typically speaking, it take 8 to 12 weeks for optimal results to start showing.
