What is cosmetic acupuncture?


Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial acupuncture or facial rejuvenation acupuncture, is a non-surgical and holistic approach to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the signs of aging on the face.

In cosmetic acupuncture, very thin, sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the face and body to stimulate blood flow, promote collagen production, and activate the body's natural healing response. This can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and enhance overall facial radiance.

Cosmetic acupuncture is believed to work by increasing circulation, which delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells, as well as by triggering the body's natural production of collagen and elastin. It may also stimulate the lymphatic system, helping to reduce puffiness and inflammation in the face.

Cosmetic acupuncture is generally considered safe, although it's important to seek treatment from a licensed acupuncturist with specialized training in facial acupuncture.

What is cosmetic acupuncture with facial cupping?

Cosmetic acupuncture with facial cupping is a combined treatment that involves the use of both acupuncture needles and facial cups on the face.

In this treatment, an acupuncturist will typically begin by using acupuncture to stimulate blood flow, promote collagen production, and activate the body's natural healing response. Then, facial cups are applied to the skin and used to create suction, which can further increase blood flow and promote lymphatic drainage.

Combining cosmetic acupuncture and facial cupping may help to enhance the benefits of both treatments, providing a more comprehensive approach to improving the appearance of the skin.


The acupuncture needles may stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow, while the facial cups may help to reduce inflammation, improve lymphatic drainage, and enhance overall facial radiance.
