When people think of acupuncture, most people think of relieving pain, a holistic approach to reducing discomfort. This is all fine, but have you heard of cosmetic acupuncture? To be honest, I hadn’t, but a friend told me that cosmetic acupuncture is widely practiced in the US & France and that its popularity is increasing rapidly. Celebrities, such as Madonna, Gweneth Paltrow, Naomi Campbell, are supposedly avid fans of this type of acupuncture.
OK. Here is a brief information on cosmetic acupuncture. It is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce signs of aging – leaving the skin nourished, hydrated and toned, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Many know that acupuncture stimulates muscles and increases flow of blood. This also applies to facial muscles. Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates the facial muscles and increases the flow of blood and Qi (energy) to the face. This increases collagen production, which fills out the lines and wrinkles giving firmness to the skin and a healthy glowing complexion.
