Is Facial Acupuncture the New Botox?

There is no denying that Botox and facial fillers have been leading the way when it comes to maintaining a youthful appearance and tackling the signs of aging. However, for those who are apprehensive to use these common go-to’s there is an alternative treatment that people are deeming it the new Botox. This is facial rejuvenation acupuncture in San Francisco.
What Exactly is Facial Acupuncture All About?
Facial acupuncture or cosmetic acupuncture makes use of needles that are inserted into pre-determined points on the face, encouraging balance and stimulating collagen production. Touching specific body points helps to enhance skin quality and can heal acne scars. To treat skin conditions, acupuncture points are stimulated along the arms, torso and legs. The procedure offers a more holistic approach to healing and looks into skin problems along with other issues such as anxiety and digestive problems.
Typically speaking, around 40 needles are put on the face accompanied by some on the body. This can differ depending upon an individual’s skin goals. The acupuncture needles are left on the skin for about 20 to 25 minutes. It is important to get in touch with an experienced, licensed, and skilled San Francisco acupuncturist to ensure you always receive optimal results.
How Does This Treatment Benefit with Anti-aging?
As a person ages, the skin’s ability to produce collagen slows down. This inevitably leads to wrinkles, fine lines and a decline in the elasticity of the skin. Facial acupuncture assists with collagen production, which addresses the signs of aging. The treatment of inserting acupuncture needles causes microtrauma to the skin. This signals your body to send collagen to heal a specific area.
Other than this, microtrauma assists in increasing the healing speed and enhancing blood flow. This results in glowing and radiant skin as well as an enhanced texture and tone.
In Conclusion
Although facial acupuncture won’t magically stop aging, there are numerous other health benefits that can be achieved. Facial acupuncture requires time devoted regularly. Additionally, many people prefer it to Botox because of its natural process with no side effects. Thus, we recommend that you should give facial rejuvenation acupuncture in San Francisco a try!
