A Little Bit About The Benefits of Facial Acupuncture

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.

I've done acupuncture for about 2 years now and love it! It's been the only thing that has helped my allergies and has kept me from being sick all the time. I highly recommend it!

Hi Everyone,I don't know of a site where you can locate acupuncturists in your area, but if you look online or in the yellow pages you will be able to find someone local. If you live in or around NYC or the Hamptons, Shellie is amazing!

I have been getting this type af acupuncture for about 10 sessions, and I love it. My lines are less noticable, my skin is fimer and the tone is better, my under eye bags have diminished, and I have had lots of great side effects such as reduced PMS, good energy and overall great health.I just saw my best friend (since age 15!) for the 1st time in about 3 months and she was FLOORED by the change. She couldn't get over it.I go to Michelle Bullard in Berkeley, CA and I am 100% happy with the results. I plan to go for every 6-8 weeks "touch-ups" forever!

I'm dying to try acupuncture...it's been recommended to me by several people. I have TMJ and I have heard that acupuncture would help provide some pain relief/management. I actually think my health insurance has some "holistic medicine/wellness" coverage (although not much), so I really SHOULD look into this...

I'm so happy to see this! I have a fantastic acupunturist who I've been seeing for years and really, I've never found anything that works better for overall health and beauty. Ever since I've been going for acupuncture regularly I've lost weight, my skin's cleared up, my nails and hair are stonger, I rarely get sick, almost never feel tired...I couldn't recommend anything more :) And P.S. - it doesn't hurt at all! :D
