Wrinkles Reduction

Services and Prices

***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. Generally, we will conduct an assessment after the initial course is completed to determine whether further treatment is necessary. This ensures that we can provide you with the most appropriate and effective treatment plan.

The reasons for the formation of wrinkles on the face:

The formation of wrinkles on the face is caused by several factors:

  • Natural aging: As one grows older, the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers decrease, causing the skin to become thinner and looser, leading to the formation of wrinkles.
  • Sun exposure: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, especially without sufficient sun protection, can damage the skin and increase the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Facial expressions habits: Repeatedly making certain facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting, can create creases in the skin, and over time, these wrinkles may become more prominent.
  • Smoking: Research indicates that smoking can cause premature aging of the skin, including the development of wrinkles.
  • Poor diet: Unhealthy eating habits can lead to nutritional deficiencies that impact skin health and accelerate skin aging.
  • Lack of proper skincare: Neglecting regular skincare practices, such as moisturizing, cleansing, and protecting the skin, may accelerate skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Genetic factors: Genetics can also influence the rate and way a person’s skin ages.

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.

Acupuncture helps smooth wrinkles

Acupuncture, as one of the traditional Chinese medical practices, can help with wrinkle reduction. Here are some ways in which acupuncture can assist with wrinkle reduction:

  • Improved blood circulation: Acupuncture stimulates the skin and facial tissues, enhancing blood flow and providing more oxygen and nutrients to promote skin metabolism and repair, thus slowing down the formation of wrinkles.
  • Enhanced skin elasticity: Acupuncture’s stimulation of meridians and acupoints can activate the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, increasing skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Facial muscle relaxation: Acupuncture can relax tense facial muscles, reducing wrinkles caused by facial expressions and muscle tension.
  • Balanced energy flow: According to Chinese medicine theory, acupuncture can regulate the balance of Qi and blood in the body, improving overall health and positively impacting skin health.

It is important to note that acupuncture’s effectiveness varies from person to person. Wrinkle reduction often requires multiple sessions and is usually combined with other treatments, a healthy routine, balanced diet, minimizing excessive facial expressions, and enhancing skincare management to enhance the effects. 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.
