Maintaining Youthful Skin with Acupuncture & Microneedling

Updated: Apr 16, 2023

Looking for a wrinkle-free refresh? Acupuncture has got your back (or should we say "your face")!

Let's admit it. Aging isn't always fun! Of course, there are the good parts, the gaining of wisdom and whatnot, but there are plenty of downsides as well. One of the biggest things that people have begun to obsess over is their appearance as they age. Now of course there is nothing wrong with a few wrinkles, but it can be hard to feel your best when your look on the outside doesn't match your age on the inside. That's where acupuncture and microneedling can help.

We all know that botox and other more invasive cosmetic surgeries can erase wrinkles, but in the process, you are opening yourself up to toxins and potential infections and other risks. So what if there was a safer and less invasive way to combat the natural signs of aging? Lucky for you, there is.

How Does it Work?

Facial Acupuncture, as well as microneedling, have both been proven to reduce the signs of aging significantly. It works by helping to improve blood flow to the area, as well as stimulating the body's natural collagen response, which helps to improve skin elasticity and plumpness. The increase in blood flow leaves patients with glowing skin as well as improved color, and ultimately wrinkle reduction.

Not Just for Aesthetics

One of the best things about Traditional Chinese Medicine is that it is all-encompassing, so when you receive facial acupuncture you are also opening yourself up to other benefits such as anxiety relief and improved sleep.

Microneedling vs. Facial Acupuncture

When talking about wrinkle reduction there are two different ways in which your acupuncturist can assist you. Facial Acupuncture is more similar to the Acupuncture that you are traditionally used to. Your Acupuncturist uses individual needles placed on the face and lets them sit for about 20mins. Microneedling is very similar, except it utilizes a bit more of an aggressive approach. Microneedling is performed with a pen that has microscopic oscillating needles. That may sound a bit intimidating, but in reality, it is not painful, and is incredibly effective at fighting off new and existing wrinkles. There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to the two options, but if you are looking for stronger and faster results microneedling is going to be your new best friend.

Can I get Microneedling? As long as you haven't recently had botox you can get microneedling! Microneedling can be effective for anti-aging as well as scar reduction, stretch marks, acne scarring, and more.
