What is facial acupuncture? Should you try it? You might be familiar with acupuncture for your body, but your face? That sounds a little crazy. Like microneedling, facial acupuncture creates small amounts of trauma to the skin. As your brain receives these signals, it increases the production of collagen. Collagen improves your skin’s elasticity and helps repair damaged cells. Unlike microneedling, facial acupuncture is nearly painless. With needles less than a hair thick, you only feel as much as a prick when inserted. When the needles are inserted into the skin, blood flow is increased, which also stimulates your skin’s natural glow. When you age, gravity tends to elongate your muscles and stretch them out. Acupuncture increases blood flow and oxygen, which helps shorten your muscles while lifting and tightening your skin. So, what do you think? Would you be willing to try facial acupuncture?
