***Each session typically includes 3 to 5 acupuncture treatments. However, the exact number of sessions required depends on individual condition, treatment response, and expected outcomes.

The formation of wrinkles on the face is caused by several factors:
While wrinkles are a natural phenomenon, adopting healthy lifestyle habits, using sun protection, keeping the skin moisturized, and practicing proper skincare can help delay the formation of wrinkles and reduce their severity. Acupuncture also could help smooth the wrinkles.
Collagen is not only the main adhesive that supports the skin in the dermis layer, but also works together with elastic fibers to form a mesh-like support, just like the steel structure that supports the skin tissue. Therefore, enough collagen can make the skin cells plump, so that the skin can be filled with water, showing firmness, elasticity and moisturizing, and can maintain the skin smooth, and make fine lines and wrinkles stretch, and achieve the effect of removing wrinkles.
Guided by the profound foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories, cosmetic acupuncture utilizes the principles and characteristics of body and skin regeneration, rejuvenation, and repair. Following the natural course of events, the principle behind wrinkle reduction involves stimulating beneath the wrinkles using needles, prompting the formation of new granulation tissue at the concave areas of the wrinkles. By harnessing the body’s own qi (vital energy) and blood circulation, as well as cellular mechanisms, this method replenishes and enhances the deficient and deformed areas, achieving beauty and health through a non-surgical, safe, risk-free, and side-effect-free treatment, ensuring a natural and secure beauty.

Before undergoing acupuncture treatment, it is advisable to consult with a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner or acupuncturist to ensure safety and appropriate treatment planning. Additionally, acupuncture may not be suitable for everyone and may not be recommended under certain circumstances.
