Facial Acupuncture Improves Skin Elasticity

The Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine published research showing that facial acupuncture improves skin elasticity in July 2013.

From August to September 2011 a pilot study* was carried out at Kyung Hee University Hospital in Gangdong, Korea.

28 women aged between 40 – 59 received five sessions of facial acupuncture over three weeks.

The participants’ skin was measured before and after the treatments. There was a significant improvement in the ‘Moire Topography’ criteria, which is used to measure the facial contours and skin elasticity.

I recommend a course of ten regular Facial Enhancement Acupuncture treatments for my patients, to begin with, for optimum results, followed-up with maintenance treatments at greater intervals. It would be interesting to see further studies into facial acupuncture’s effect on skin elasticity, particularly the improvements after more treatments.
