What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Acupuncture cosmetology is a method that starts from the overall concept of traditional Chinese medicine, uses acupuncture as a method, and stimulates parts and acupoints to maintain skin, beautify the face, delay ageing, and treat facial skin diseases. It has the characteristics of simple and easy operation, is known as being non-toxic and harmless, safe and reliable with rapid effect.

It can be said that acupuncture cosmetology is one of the most important beauty methods. It is known for its ease of operation and for having no known side effects and is therefore generally welcomed by people.

Cosmetic acupuncture is to use acupuncture and moxibustion methods to nourish the viscera, reduce swelling and eliminate knots, regulate qi and blood, and then reduce or eliminate certain physiological or pathological diseases that affect the appearance. This has been evidenced to promote physical fitness and delay ageing.

Through the acupuncture method, silver needles are used to pierce the acupoints and the skin of the affected area, and then appropriate manipulations are applied to make the patient feel sore, numb, pain, cold and heat, so as to achieve the purpose of beauty and fitness like skin brightening and double chin removal. These treatments are virtually painless and proven to minimize the risk of bruising or other side effects.

Research Studies Done on Cosmetic Acupuncture

While there haven’t been as many research studies on cosmetic acupuncture as some other use cases, those which have been done show acupuncture offers benefits for skin rejuvenation and other cosmetic purposes.

Blade Needle Therapy

Blade needle therapy is a safer and more effective method that has been developed from the principles of Acupotomy. The blade needle has a wedge shape, providing a larger subcutaneous puncture area and stronger stimulation intensity, while still known for being painless. Since the flat needle handle is at the same angle as the flat needle, it is considered safe as it will not deform during puncture.

Features of Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture has been documented as having a variety of beneficial effects. The treatment is focused on the face and has been proven to be able to make you look many years younger!

This technique can help remove annoying wrinkles such as crow’s feet, eyebrow wrinkles, and creases between the eyebrows. Cosmetic acupuncture can also help remove bags under the eyes and darker patches of skin. It may even help with skin conditions like eczema and acne! If you don’t have any specific skin problems, scientific evidence shows that acupuncture can still help promote brighter and healthier-looking skin.
