Everything You Need to Know About Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Your face is one of the first body parts where you are likely to notice the signs of premature aging. Dark spots, loose skin, and wrinkles on your face can make you feel older.
Many men and women try Botox and fillers to slow the signs of aging. However, there are several drawbacks of Botox and fillers. They are expensive, can have side effects, need to be maintained, and contain harsh chemicals.
Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and natural alternative to Botox, fillers, and plastic surgery. It does not have any serious side effects while being completely drug-free and minimally invasive.
Unlike injection procedures that only address the signs of aging, acupuncture can help improve the overall health of your skin.
There is enough evidence to suggest that facial acupuncture improves skin tone and elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines under the eyes, and improves complexion.
What to Expect From a Session
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture involves the insertion of paper-thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the face and other body parts. This, in turn, increases blood flow to the face, boosts collagen production, and removes dead skin cells.
How Facial Acupuncture Works 
The punctures created during a session stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system. These systems work in unison to deliver oxygen and other nutrients to the skin cells.
Facial acupuncture also reduces tension in the forehead and jaw muscles. Many people use facial rejuvenation acupuncture in San Francisco to treat different dermatological problems, including dry skin, dull complexion, scarring, eczema, and acne.
Also known as facial cosmetic acupuncture, revitalization, or an acupuncture facelift, facial acupuncture revitalizes and restores youthful glow to the skin and balances qi. It stimulates the muscles beneath the face to improve their tone.
Results vary from person to person. Most people see a significant improvement in radiance. Some other common benefits of facial rejuvenation acupuncture include smoother skin and better sculpted facial muscles.
How Many Sessions Do You Need?
The number of treatment sessions you need will primarily depend on the severity of your skin conditions and your expectations. Some people start experiencing benefits after the first five sessions, while others may need up to 10 sessions or more.
