Acupuncture can help increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the face and prevent the formation of wrinkles, minimise appearance of fine lines, increase the collagen production and strengthen the skin fibres, and reduce the puffiness around the eyes. It will bring you a youthful glow to the face.
During the treatment, the doctor will apply the finest, single-use needles on your local facial acupuncture points and general body acupuncture points which will help boost the energy, balance the hormone and metabolism, reduce the puffiness and swelling, regulate the "Qi" and "Blood" circulation.
Chinese herbal remedy may also be prescribed in order to promote the benefits between the treatment sessions.
Visible improvement are often readily apparent from the first couple of sessions and a minimum course of 10--15 sessions is recommended to get optimum benefit. Because of the cumulative effects, a series of regular monthly maintenance sessions are necessary, then the effects could last for years after the initial course of treatment.

Facial acupuncture is the Hollywood star's shortcut to younger looking skin
Who wouldn't want to look 10 years younger in just 20 minutes?
The rich, the vain and the famous (reportedly Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cher) are having weekly "acupuncture facelifts" to ward off their wrinkles.
The "facelift" is administered by a doctor of Oriental Medicine (or OMD), who spikes your face with disposable, hair-thin needles that - allegedly - turn back time and halt the physical manifestations of ageing.
The needles are inserted into wrinkles and frown lines, eventually making them vanish.
The stimulation brings blood rushing to the face, which makes it look flushed. Apparently, after a few sessions, eyes brighten, skin feels firmer, lips become plumper and blemishes vanish.
"Facial acupuncture stimulates the cells to lay down new collagen fibres under wrinkles, thereby filling them in," says New York acupuncturist Billy Villano. "And the needles relax muscles, which combats sagging in facial areas. The results are amazing."
"The facial acupuncture works by making energy circulate properly around your face, but energy needs to circulate properly around your whole body, not just your face."

Do Acupuncture Face Lifts Hurt At All?
Many people who are planning to receive an acupuncture face lift procedure ask if the facelift actually hurts. The truth is that it is relatively painless and the patient usually fall asleep during the acupuncture procedure.
Acupuncture face lifts have grown dramatically in the recent years. This is a procedure using needles placed in integral locations to stimulate cellular growth and blood supply in order to regain a more youthful appearance. With no actual side effects related to the procedure and no pain at all, many wonder if it actually works. Many people will swear that acupuncture face lifts work.
The fact that they are also the least painful of all the procedures helps a lot. While many people will religiously stick to the use of creams, lotions and herbal remedies, the acupuncture face lift still grows in popularity.
For some people, it may be the perfect alternative as a non invasive face lift. Furthermore, after receiving an acupuncture face lift, it is not uncommon for one to also go through a chemical peel or microdermabrasion in order to reduce the signs of visible wrinkles in the skin as well.
Be sure that you do the research before committing to a procedure. Make sure that you also choose a reputable acupuncture specialist as there are many people that say they know how to do it but in truth they do not.
