Facial acupuncture has been around for many years in ancient Chinese culture. The procedure involves pricking the skin (or tissues) with thin needles at anatomical points to benefit the skin. For example, recent clinical trials have demonstrated that facial acupuncture can help ease fine lines and wrinkles and brighten the complexion. In addition, facial and body acupuncture can help balance hormones, increase circulation, alleviate pain, and even support the immune system. However, it's important to remember that you will need regular acupuncture treatments to see noticeable results. You may also experience some light bruising while the skin heals.
