Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that balances the body’s energy system. The main goal of acupuncturists is to help people get better by using needles. The needles are placed at specific points of the body and stimulate certain nerves to release chemicals that improve blood flow.
If your skin has lost its elasticity or even if it’s just starting to sag, an acupuncture facelift could help bring back some youthful vitality and rejuvenate the appearance of your face.
What is an Acupuncture Facelift?
An acupuncture facial is a type of cosmetic procedure where the acupuncturist inserts the needles directly onto the surface of your skin. This is similar to how a dermatologist would perform a chemical peel or a laser hair removal. Acupuncturists use needles to stimulate the face’s energy channels to improve skin conditions, including acne, wrinkles, and cellulite.
Acupuncture needles are very fine, so they can go into deeper tissues. These needles are inserted into specific points of the face. Acupuncturists often say this is a “non-invasive treatment.” Once inserted, the needles will stay in place for between 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the targeted area.
The results of the acupuncture facial vary depending on the person. Some people feel a tingling sensation while others do not. Many patients find that they get better results after multiple sessions. However, there is no guarantee that every patient will see the same result.
What Are The Benefits of an Acupuncture Facelift?
In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to help people heal themselves. It works on the principle that certain points along the body can affect many different systems. When properly stimulated, these points can lead to improvements in overall health.
A well-placed session of acupuncture can stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. This type of treatment stimulates collagen production, promotes circulation and blood flow, increases lymphatic drainage, and boosts the immune system to fight off bacteria and infection.
When needles are inserted into the face, the brain produces natural hormones that promote cell regeneration. This process helps to strengthen collagen fibers while reducing inflammation and swelling. It does this by increasing blood flow which stimulates the production of new cells and nutrients.
Regular acupuncture facelift treatments help boost energy levels and ease the look of lines and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Are There Risks of an Acupuncture Facelift?
Yes. If you have a medical condition or are allergic to certain substances, you may be at risk of adverse reactions. There are also risks of infections, and if you have broken skin, you may be at increased risk of bruising.
If you are interested in a consultation with a practitioner, you should check that they have an active license to practice.
Traditional facial plastic surgery involves using tools such as knives, drills, and scalpels to remove wrinkles and other signs of aging. If you do not want to undergo such an invasive procedure that costs a lot, an acupuncture facelift is a good alternative.
An acupuncture facelift procedure involves no pain medication and takes only 30 minutes. It uses the same techniques used for cosmetic injections, including microcurrent technology to stimulate blood flow and trigger collagen production.
While some people report feeling soreness after receiving an acupuncture facial treatment, it’s much less severe than other forms of aesthetic procedures which can leave bruising or discomfort. If you still have questions about acupuncture, feel free to call our office at 305-456-1014!
