Rejuvenate Your Face with Acupuncture

For weeks, the acupuncture patient who finished before my appointment would emerge from his session bright eyed and glowing. This guy seemed to be permanently dewy — with clear, healthy skin free from laugh lines and furrow marks. I finally asked my acupuncturist what kind of treatment this smooth-skinned gentleman was receiving. In an excited whisper he said, "facial rejuvenation — it's amazing."

Following the tenets of acupuncture, facial rejuvenation or facial acupuncture uses tiny needles to stimulate meridian points on the body that connect to the face or to activate points that are actually on the face. The procedure is fairly painless — patients may feel a quick sharp sensation as energy blockages are released — and can bring about dramatic results. Regular treatments can completely eliminate fine lines and reduce deeper wrinkles. Facial rejuvenation is also used to reduce puffiness under the eyes, firm jowls, lift droopy eyelids, and tighten double chins.

Consistent treatment can also lead to long-term health and beauty of the skin by increasing collagen production and muscle tone, tightening pores and reducing acne (through hormone regulation). All of this with no surgery, massive medical bills or painful recovery.
