Health Benefits of Facial Acupuncture

Health Benefits of Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a rejuvenation method gaining steam for its incredible benefits. From the reduction of acne to the decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial acupuncture will improve the overall quality of your skin, with little to no side effects. As a natural and affordable alternative to plastic surgery, injectables, and expensive luxury skin care products, facial acupuncture can help you not only boost your confidence about your appearance but also feel confident knowing you are doing something good for yourself.

As part of our holistic, natural, and non-invasive treatment ethos, facial acupuncture can be a worthy addition to your other chiropractic treatment visits as a form of self-care. Whether you are looking to reap the many cosmetic or medical benefits of facial acupuncture, our team can help.

What is Facial Acupuncture and How Does it Work?

Facial acupuncture is exactly what it sounds like a type of acupuncture treatment for your face! Depending on if you are looking for cosmetic or medical treatment, certain acupuncture points and treatment plans, but facial acupuncture will feel relatively the same for both purposes.

Just like acupuncture for the body, facial acupuncture uses tiny acupuncture needles placed along specific acupuncture points. Also like the acupuncture points in your body, the ones in the face work to stimulate the healing process of tiny microtraumas in the skin tissue. Not unlike other facial treatments such as microneedling, exfoliation, or chemical peels, facial acupuncture treatments increase blood flow and stimulate collagen production, resulting in clearer, healthier, happier skin.

Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture is considered an alternative to surgical or other invasive procedures to improve or enhance your appearance, reducing the signs of aging. Sometimes referred to as
facial rejuvenation treatment or acupuncture facelift, facial acupuncture treatments host a number of potential benefits such as:

  • Glowing, rejuvenated skin
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Prevention of sagging skin
  • Younger, healthier-looking complexion
  • Decrease in acne
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Fading of sun spots and other blemishes and discoloration
  • Sun damage healing
  • Reduced puffiness
  • Minimized pores

In addition to cosmetic issues, facial acupuncture can be used to treat medical concerns such as:

  • Relief from TMJ symptoms and other jaw pain
  • Decreased seasonal allergies
  • Lower blood pressure and reduced stress
  • Prevention and relief of migraines

What to Expect During Facial Acupuncture in Beverly Hills

Your facial acupuncture treatment will generally last about 30-45 minutes and will have the same relaxing quality as acupuncture received on other parts of the body. To prepare for a cosmetic acupuncture treatment, you will want to forgo wearing any makeup or sunscreen or using heavy creams and moisturizers that day. As always, avoid blood thinners, including ibuprofen, for best results. Most people do not have any negative reactions, even those with sensitive skin or other skin concerns, and unlike some injectables and other facial spa treatments, there is no recovery or downtime needed following your facial acupuncture treatment.

Note that it is often recommended that you receive a facial acupuncture treatment following a full-body acupuncture treatment. This will help to avoid any potential congestion that could occur when only receiving facial acupuncture; however, your Beverly Hills acupuncturist at Tannenbaum Chiropractic will be able to go over your acupuncture treatment plan to consider your cosmetic or medical goals and the amount and frequency of sessions needed to meet them.
