5 Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture

Updated: Sep 29, 2019

Sometimes you just aren't satisfied with the face looking back at you in the mirror! Facial rejuvenation therapy, or cosmetic acupuncture, promotes a brighter, smoother complexion with results that can last for up to 5 years, unlike Botox or other surgical options.

1) Corrects and reduces wrinkles

Studies show that acupuncture encourages collagen production. More collagen will improve the skin's elasticity and fill in wrinkles in the face.

2) Smooths and brightens complexion

Facial acupuncture stimulates microcirculation, which improves blood flow to the face and clears out toxins. More blood to the face will also reduce the appearance of dark spots and dark circles under the eyes.

3) Fills in face

Improved circulation will encourage better lymphatic drainage. Combined with increased collagen production stimulated by the needles, wrinkled or tired areas of the face will be lifted.

4) Reduces scars

Increased circulation in the face will reduce the appearance of darker spots on the skin caused by scar tissue. Acupuncture has also been shown to promote new tissue regeneration, helping scars fade more naturally over a shorter period of time.

5) Improves muscle tone and relieves jaw tension

Acupuncture triggers a relaxation response in the body that relieves tension in the muscles. Cosmetic acupuncture is like a workout for your face! A release of tension in certain areas of the face while stimulating the muscles in other areas can help the skin look firmer and smooth out some fine lines.

Our cosmetic acupuncture treatments are partnered with Celluma light therapy, microcurrent facials, and cupping to help you achieve younger-looking skin in less time! Call us at (321) 972-2940 to schedule an initial consultation today.
