Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical beauty treatment to reduce the signs of ageing. Acupuncture to the face increases the local blood circulation and stimulates collagen production, which fills out lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has attracted great attention in the last few years. It used to be a treatment only for the rich and famous but now, with the growing number of 'High St' TCM practices, most people have access to this effective treatment.
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among three hundred cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked improvements from one course of treatment. The effects included: 'Skin becoming more delicate, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation.'
