Freedom Care Clinics’ expert acupuncture consultant Mar De La Cruz, explains how cosmetic facial acupuncture works.
Facial acupuncture is a chemical free and drug free way to improve the appearance of the skin. It has been shown to:
• Stimulate new collagen – to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, known as collagen synthesis.
• Increase skin firmness and elasticity.
• Improve symptoms of stress and enhance sleep quality, which are leading causes of poor skin health and tired looking skin.
Most cosmetic procedures treat the appearance of skin by injecting or applying chemicals. Acupuncture however aims to improve the health of your body naturally, which can help your skin. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and subsequently a healthy body will result in clearer healthier skin.
Acupuncture affects your skin in two ways. First it creates changes at a skin level due to a similar process to derma-roller and micro needling. These changes include improved skin firmness and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles as a result of collagen synthesis. Secondly, acupuncture may improve your general health and well-being resulting in clearer and brighter looking skin.
