7 Great Benefits of Facial Acupuncture

Have you been wondering if facial acupuncture is right for you?  It has recently become popular with celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Gwyneth Paltrow raving about its effects. Read on to learn why celebrities love facial acupuncture and what benefits you could see in your own skin.


  1. It is a Natural Alternative to Botox

Many practitioners believe that facial acupuncture can produce similar results to Botox without the needs to inject toxins into your skin. It is believed it will slow the signs of aging and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.


  1. It Helps Your Body Produce Collagen

Collagen is the layer in your skin that makes it plump, firm and youthful. Essentially, the more collagen you have in your skin the fewer wrinkles you will have. Our collagen levels naturally reduce with age, so the more we can do to aid in our skins production and retention of collagen, the better.


  1. It Helps Skin Absorb Your Beauty Products

Beauty products can get incredibly expensive, and the last thing you want is to spend all the money on creams and serums to have it sit on top of your skin, instead of sinking into it. Facial acupuncture opens your skin up so the products you use as part of your routine will prove more effective.


  1. You’ll Glow

Many people see immediate effects from facial acupuncture – their skin glows and they don’t feel the need to cover their skin with foundation and concealer for at least a few days following the treatment. The acupuncture triggers a healing response in your skin, and fresh blood and oxygen flood the face, turning dull and grey skin back to your natural youthful glow.


  1. It’s Not a Quick Fix

Unlike Botox and fillers, acupuncture helps you to manage the health of your skin over the long term, instead of injecting something into it for an immediate fix. This means you’ll be able to incorporate it into a beauty routine that will help you look and feel great for life.


  1. It’s a Healthy Aspect of Self-Care

One benefit of acupuncture other skin care treatments don’t have is a reduction in stress and tension levels. Many people find acupuncture or simply the act of taking time for themselves incredibly relaxing and incorporating it as part of a self-care routine can not only be beneficial to your overall skin health but also your mental health and stress management.


  1. It Increases Blood Circulation

The primary benefit of acupuncture anywhere in the body is that it kickstarts blood circulation in that area. This blood flow will increase cell repair, increase oxygen, nutrient and collagen within the cells, and it will help clear your skin of unhealthy pollution and free-radicals. This increased circulation also helps reduce inflammation which is a major cause of acne and other blemishes.


You may think that the only option for receiving the benefits of facial acupuncture is to go into a clinic and have an acupuncturist individually place needles in your face, but there is another option if you are on a budget or scared of having needles pierce your skin. Our acupuncture rollers are the only system of their kind where you can gain the benefits of acupuncture at home without damaging your skin.
