How Does an Acupuncture Face Lift Work?

Acupuncture Face Lift

Before you decide to have facial acupuncture, you should make sure that the practitioner you choose is licensed and is an experienced one. While treatment preparation may vary slightly depending on the specialist you choose, the placement of the needles is similar for each treatment: with common insertion points being on the chin, around the nose, on the forehead, and on the sides of the face. No aftercare is needed with an acupuncture face lift and the risk of side effects is low. The treatment itself isĀ  quite painless, although if you have an aversion to needles, you may feel a certain amount of trepidation when it comes to getting cosmetic acupuncture.

How does the acupuncture face lift work?

Tiny needles are inserted into acupoints on the face and left for a duration of approximately 30 minutes. Sometimes electro-stimulation will be used on the points to move the muscles for further toning. Electro-stimulation probes will be clasped directly on the needle.
