Facial acupuncture is not usually considered a typical beauty therapy, but your face is ridden with emotion and hormonal issues that can be treated with those painless mini needles. According to Shellie Goldstein, acupuncturist to the stars, Acufacials—a term coined by Goldstein—can really help improve the overall appearance of your skin.
For example, acupuncture treatments can clear up persistent pimples and acne, give skin a dewy hydrated glow, brighten your eyes and improve weakened vision. It evens out your skin tone by reducing redness, it tones sagging muscles, lessens the look of fine lines as well as minimizes deeper laugh lines and forehead furrows.
In addition, since the experience is so calming, it relaxes your mind and body which helps reduce your stress level. If you've never tried facial acupuncture but are suffering from any of these symptoms, I just wanted to be sure you knew about this type of alternative treatment. I have yet to try it, but I did have acupuncture in my foot after toe surgery and it worked wonders to reduce swelling, manage pain and improve mobility.
