The Art Of Acupuncture
Aesthetic Medical Acupuncture
This modern cosmetic treatment is an extension of traditional medical acupuncture. It combines whole body rebalance while naturally helping make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier. Unlike injections procedures, facial and scalp acupuncture addresses not only sign of aging, but also the skin's overall health from inside out.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points on the face and body, to various depths.In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has long been used to improve the flow of vital energy "chi" throughout the face and body. This vital energy is thought to circulate through energy lines which are known as meridians. According to traditional Chinese medicine, health problems occur as a result of blockages in the flow of vital energy. By inserting needles into specified points along meridian lines, medical acupuncture aims to restore the flow of vital energy, blood flow and, in turn, improve health and fine lines/wrinkles. Dr. Chen is certified and trained in medical acupuncture for 20 years.
What Are The Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture is the modern, non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the aging process. Sometimes referred to as an "acupuncture facelift" or "facial rejuvenation," cosmetic acupuncture often is used as an alternative to surgical facelifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of aging in the skin. Proponents claim that cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift droopy eyelids. It can also be used to treat acne and breakouts, at any age. Most courses of cosmetic acupuncture treatment involve 8 or more sessions, as well as additional sessions for maintenance of results.
How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?
Cosmetic acupuncture is purported to improve skin and act as an anti-aging treatment in part by stimulating the production of collagen (a protein that acts as a major component of your skin). As you age, your skin's inner layer loses collagen and, as a result, becomes less supple and firm. However, there is no scientific evidence to support the claim that acupuncture can promote collagen production. Some proponents also suggest that cosmetic acupuncture can help rejuvenate your skin by improving your overall energy.
A Word From DrMedSpa.
While there is no evidence that cosmetic acupuncture can improve your skin, it is possible that undergoing acupuncture can help manage your stress and enhance your overall health.
