Face rejuvenation

acupuncture facial pic

While average life span in developed countries is exceeding 80 years, more and more people are looking for any possible means to maintain young look. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a natural procedure for enhancing a person's facial beauty by insertion of fine acupuncture cosmetic pins into specific points on your face. It has been used to reduce aging skin signs such as wrinkles and fine lines collecting in the corners of your eyes and mouths due to age and sagging skin under eyes and cheeks, restore skin texture and resting facial muscle tone, and improve facial appearance. This ancient cosmetic technique has been gaining popularity over the past two decades for its beauty-enhanced effects. You should not be surprised if you see a swarm of acupuncturists in L.A Soho House before a major Hollywood event. It becomes an alternative to conventional cosmetic techniques if you are looking for safe, natural and effective treatment. On top of cosmetic purpose, acupuncture is effective to treat many skin issues such as acne, age-related brown spots, hormone-related skin change, eczema, dermatitis, etc.

How skin changes with aging

In order to succeed in facial rejuvenation, it is important to understand how skin changes with increasing age. Starting in 30’s, collagen and elastin in skin are decreasing, the function of oil and lymphatic glands in skin is weakening, skin cell turnovers are slower, melanocytes in skin are changing. The subtle changes result in thinner and duller skin, wrinkles and fine lines, sagging cheeks, puffy eyes, age spots. The aging skin process is affected by two factors: intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic factor is a natural aging process everyone is going through, is your genetic makeup and is not able to be controlled. Extrinsic factors include your exposure to sun, nutrition, environmental toxin exposure, emotional state, lifestyle, hormonal balance, some illness and medications, etc.

How we can successfully help you look more beautiful

At A1 Clinique Chinoise, our experience acupuncturist will focus on enhancing your facial rejuvenation and prevention of facial aging. Some studies on cosmetic acupuncture demonstrated that acupuncture could help you look younger and healthy by improving facial blood circulation and oxygen supply to skin, restoring rest facial muscle tone and harmonizing your hormone. It is hypothesized that acupuncture may stimulate the production of collagen and elastin with microscopic tissue damage from needling. To make beauty effects more sustainable, we will evaluate your lifestyle, nutrition/diet, stress state and hormonal unbalance, and guide you through whole process.
