4 Reasons To Try Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Wrinkles, sagging skin, and sun spots can make a person look older than they are. Premature skin aging can affect one’s appearance and confidence. Many people who experience premature skin aging symptoms have low self-esteem. Some common causes of premature skin aging include too much exposure to UV rays and lifestyle choices.

Many men and women use facial acupuncture in San Francisco to slow the signs of aging. Facial acupuncture reduces wrinkles, improves skin elasticity, and improves skin texture to make the skin look younger, smoother, and healthier.

Here are some benefits of facial acupuncture that are sure to convince you to give it a try.

Increases Collagen Production

Collagen and elastin are some of the most important building blocks of the skin. Age-related deterioration can affect the body’s ability to produce collagen. When your body produces less collagen, your skin becomes drier, thinner, less elastic, and wrinkles emerge.

A facial acupuncturist places paper-thin needles at specific points in the body to create positive healing sites. This stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in firm skin.

Natural Alternatives to Botox  

Many people opt for Botox to fight the signs of premature skin aging. Botox is made from a toxin. Scientists still aren’t completely sure of the long-term effects of Botox. People who get Botox report experiencing pain or swelling at the injection site after treatment. Other possible side effects of Botox include droopy eyelids, drooling, and eye dryness.

Unlike Botox, facial acupuncture does not have any adverse effects when performed by an experienced acupuncturist. It does not use any toxins and addresses the root cause of premature aging, instead of treating just its symptoms.

Botox paralyzes facial muscles and can cause sagging and atrophy over time. On the other hand, facial acupuncture stimulates and relaxes facial muscles, allowing you to age gracefully.  

Improves Overall Wellness

Our physical and mental health affects our skin health. Many anti-aging treatments such as Botox focus only on facial and neck muscles to alleviate symptoms of skin aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. 

Like traditional acupuncture, facial acupuncture promotes overall wellness. It takes a holistic approach to beauty. It improves digestion, circulation, and metabolism to promote overall wellness. As your overall health and wellness improve, your skin glows from the inside out.

Treats Acne

Acne affects around 50 million Americans annually. Studies suggest that facial acupuncture can ease acne by addressing the underlying cause of breakouts, such as hormonal imbalance. It helps increase the production of collagen and elastin in the body, improving the overall appearance of your skin.
