Facial acupuncture is an ancient approach to anti-aging. Using fine hair-like needles and inserting them with special technique, an acupuncturist is able to promote Qi and blood flow to the face and body, causing more collagen production which rejuvenates the skin.
Facial acupuncture improves complexion and elasticity. It helps to reduce acne/rosacea and puffiness of the eyes. It also reduces and softens wrinkles, giving your face a more vibrant and even skin tone.
