Aesthetic acupuncture perfectly combines the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine with cosmetic acupuncture to rejuvenate the skin and revive facial features and appearance. Facial acupuncture addresses not only signs of aging, but also the skin’s overall health. It works internally to optimize health while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of the skin. Cosmetic acupuncture addresses multiple factors of ageing – from smoothing lines, to enhancing the firmness and volume of skin.
Acupuncture stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, nourishing skin from the inside out. This helps even out the complexion and promote the healthy skin’s glow. The positive microtraumas also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fobres. This helps improve elasticity, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Medical studies confirm that aesthetic acupuncture prevents and delays skin aging through the regulation of vascular tone and the neuro-endocrine-immune system.
More specifically, the results of cosmetic acupuncture are:
Aesthetic acupuncture is safe, without side effects, as long as it is applied as a medical procedure by a doctor, specially trained.
It is necessary to obtain a detailed medical history because many pathological problems are accompanied by dermatological manifestations. With the specific information obtained the therapeutic protocol for each patient is personalized.
Special disposable needles are used and are placed with a specific technique, in various areas of the body and then of course on the face. It is a painless and bloodless technique without side effects.
The total treatment lasts about 1 hour.
The number and frequency of sessions depends on age, skin quality, gender, hormonal profile and even the daily habits and lifestyle of the individual. It is usually 10 – 15 sessions, with a frequency once a week. It is important to follow additional maintenance sessions 1-2 times per month to accompany the reproduction of new epithelial cells.
Aesthetic Acupuncture is becoming more and more popular because in addition to providing satisfactory aesthetic results, it is a therapeutic technique that has long been aimed at improving the state of psychosomatic well-being. It is of no coincidence that more and more stars (Monica Bellucci, Kim Kardashian, Penelope Cruz) have chosen this form of renewal to maintain their rejuvenated looks. In addition, aesthetic acupuncture bestows well-being, and a sense of relaxation. Other positive effects that may become evident are reduced stress, improved sleep and digestion, as well as reduced menopausal symptoms.
Aesthetic acupuncture is also very effective in cases of acne, rosacea, reduction of dark circles and swelling around the eyes, facial spots and cellulite.
