What does this have to do with acupuncture?
The ancient Chinese figured out pretty early on how to use acupuncture for cosmetic purposes. The practice of facial rejuvenation acupuncture dates back to the Song Dynasty in China (960 - 1270 AD), when cosmetic acupuncture was used by the empress and the imperial family. This type of acupuncture involves the use of micro needles on areas of the face where you want to reduce wrinkles or smoothen out fine lines, especially around the eyes, on the forehead, or in between the eyebrows. It works by increasing blood circulation to the face and activating collagen production.
Nowadays it’s a popular way of rejuvenating and revitalising the face. Celebrities like Jeniffer Anniston, Kim Kadarshian and Gwyneth Paltrow use this safe, non-surgical way of enhancing their appearance.
However, what I like about this practice is that it’s not just about the face. I also use acupuncture points on the body to address any underlying issues such as dark circles around the eyes, puffy skin, or rough skin. It is always about the person’s health above anything else.
To be clear, this is not about erasing wrinkles. It’s for people who want to look fresher and healthier without the risks of surgery or Botox.
