Facial acupuncture offers a natural, non-invasive method for anti-aging skin care. The insertion of tiny sterilized stainless steel needles causes microtrauma to the skin, which has the affect of stimulating collagen and elastin formation and increases blood flow to nourish the facial tissue. The treatment reduces wrinkle formation, improves skin tone, and brightens the skin's glow.
Mild suction applied to the face gently lifts the skin, resulting in increase of blood circulation and stimulation of collagen formation to the surrounding facial tissue. Movement with the facial cups also promotes fluid metabolism by draining excess fluid into the cervical lymph nodes. This can reduce puffiness of the face and under the eye. By the end of the treatment, you may notice your skin feeling tighter and more toned.
