Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Rejuvenate your face by treating harmonizing the entire body and face with Acupuncture.
Beauty comes from Within
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture involves strategically inserting ultra-thin, sterilized needles into different areas of the skin with the aim of stimulating blood flow and balancing the body's Qi (which, when translated, means "vital energy" in Traditional Chinese Medicine).

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture allows you to naturally lift and tone the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and produce an internal glow. Though the complexion is typically the target area for results, the process utilizes acupuncture points around the face and body.
Facial acupuncture can enhance the production of collagen via micro-injury to the skin, increase blood flow, stimulate immune responses that reduce inflammation, and activate any number of functional points that have various responses, like reducing jaw tension or relieving anxiety.
A 2020 review found that both facial exercises and facial acupuncture have the potential to improve:

It can also significantly lighten melasma, based on a 2016 study.
Another review in 2018 found that facial acupuncture was effective in improving the following:
- facial blood circulation
- facial size-reduction

- skin elasticity
Aside from wrinkles, a 2021 review showed that acupuncture could improve other skin-related conditions, including atopic dermatitis, itch, and hives.
