With the summer slowly (okay, let's be real: very slowly) coming to an end and the holiday season approaching, skincare might be something that is on our mind. After the harsh effects of sun, heat and dry weather and now going into the holiday season, our skin deserves a little tender loving care. Facial acupuncture is an amazing, gentle and natural way to reap the benefits of skin treatments without the harsh treatment chemicals and procedures. Below we have 5 reasons to try Facial Acupuncture for this upcoming holiday season!
1. It is fully natural and gentle and it does not have harsh side effects like botox or chemical peels.
Facial Acupuncture is perfect for those with sensitive skin or those who value natural healing cosmetic treatments. Facial Acupuncture is simply the insertion of fine needles into the dermis to stimulate the reproduction of collagen growth on the face and neck.
2. Along with the cosmetic benefits, you also get a full body acupuncture treatment at the same time!
Facial Acupuncture does not only target the face. Part of the facial acupuncture process is treating the whole body. A lot of skin issues like acne, blemishes, and redness are rooted in bodily imbalances such as hormonal imbalances, inflammation from stress and digestive issues. Acupuncture can get to the root cause of your issues and allow your skin to be treated not only cosmetically but also from the inside out.
3. Facial Acupuncture tones and depuffs the face.
Facial Acupuncture can smooth out the texture of skin and it can help depuff the face. Sticking needles into the skin can help drain lymph and create better circulation, allowing for a better skin tone, clearing of heat and boosting firmness. It is also great for muscle tone and deeper tissue tone in the face. By inserting the fine needles at certain points, it helps to relax the deeper tissue muscles that are tight and tighten the ones that are loose.
4. Facial Acupuncture balances redness and fine lines.
Redness and aging spots in the face can be correlated with internal imbalances such as digestive issues or menopause in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Facial acupuncture not only can reduce redness and marks cosmetically through stimulation of points in the face but it can also treat these issues from the inside out by targeting points in the stomach and other digestion related points.
5. It is great for boosting collagen and elastin by stimulating collagen growth.
Lastly, Facial Acupuncture is great for boosting collagen and elastin growth. By inserting fine needles into the face and stimulating the skin issue, a signal is sent to the body to send collagen to the skin. This is a natural way to trick the body into producing more collagen and keep a dewey, plump, healthy glow to our skin.
