What Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and How Can It Help Me?

The popularity of cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial rejuvenation acupuncture, has skyrocketed over the last few years. Facial rejuvenation in San Francisco is a simple way to achieve a youthful look without putting your skin through the harsh effects of chemical peels and injections. While many women jump on board without much deliberation, there are plenty who wonder if it really works.

So, before you lie down on the table, here are a few facts about facial cosmetic rejuvenation from the experienced acupuncturists at Anchor Acupuncture.

What is Facial Rejuvenation in San Francisco?

So, what is facial rejuvenation acupuncture? It is a form of treatment that is focused on improving skin naturally. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is gentle, safe, and effective and promotes a healthy glow while combating the many signs of aging. It is an alternative to conventional treatment options including collagen injections, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels that claim to reverse the signs of aging.

How Does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Work?

As mentioned above, cosmetic acupuncture is a natural treatment that helps minimize the signs of aging, such as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also addresses a multitude of other skin ailments such as melasma, acne, and rosacea flare-ups.

The face consists of 57 muscles that begin to lose tone and mass as you grow older. Collagen is an integral component of connective tissue that helps keep your skin supple yet firm. However, as we grow older, the production of collagen dips and this causes your skin to sag and look wrinkled.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture involves the use of thin needles on the head, face, and neck so as to facilitate the production of both collagen and elastin. Facial rejuvenation will improve the blood flow to your face, and tone your facial muscles. It also treats the underlying causes of age spots and blemishes.

What Does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Address?

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture addresses several skin ailments such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping eye lids
  • Sagging skin
  • Damaged skin
  • Uneven skin tone

What Does a Session of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Involve?

The first session may be intimidating, but you will soon be comfortable with the treatment. During an acupuncture session, very fine needles are inserted on the outside of your ears in order to promote relaxation. Your acupuncturist may also place needles on other body points.

Needles will also be placed on your face as well as into the site of wrinkles. Your acupuncturist may combine facial cupping and Gua Sha to promote better results. The initial appointment may last up to 90 minutes.

You will walk away feeling a great sense of relaxation and will also begin to see improvement in your skin texture, sleep, and energy levels.
