What Is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture is a procedure that involves inserting small-size thin sterilized needles into the face. It is also called face acupuncture and is a good substitute for botox, a more invasive procedure.
Acupuncture is one of the most widely accepted alternative therapies in the West; it originates in ancient China and has a long history of helping people to feel and look better.

Although acupuncture offers many other benefits, including pain relief, enhanced blood and lymph circulation, and boosts the immune system. In the Firebird Acupuncture office cosmetic acupuncture is performed by Maria Gorens, who got special training in Japanese and Korean methods of cosmetic acupuncture helping her patients to feel and look good for more than 25 years.

How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?

After the main preparation of the face, the process begins with fixing 3 mm-sized needles into specific areas, usually referred to as facial acupuncture points. The needles are left in for about 15-30 minutes, and during this process, they cause micro-injuries at the acupuncture points. The injury induces an inflammation process, causing increased blood flow to the face, supplying the face with essential nutrients, proteins, and oxygen needed to produce more elastin and collagen.

After needles are removed oriental facial massage is performed on the area of face and neck. The far infrared therapy is applied to enhance blood and lymph circulation in the face and neck area.

Both elastin and collagen work together to smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles on the face, which are usually associated with old age. The function of elastin is to allow our skin to stretch and not form wrinkles following facial muscle movement. When the skin is stretched, collagen, with its high tensile strength, prevents tearing, and the elastic

fibers, intermingled with the collagen, later return it to the unstretched state

The results from an acupuncture face rejuvenation procedure are far more profound than what you get from topical treatments.  Topical treatment deals with the superficial layer of the skin, the epidermis, while acupuncture works on the dermis.

The Benefits Of Cosmetic Acupuncture in NYC

Below are some benefits of facial acupuncture in NYC

  • It’s a minimally invasive treatment, reduced healing time, and less pain comparable to traditional Western cosmetic face lift procedure. Studies have shown that you can apply makeup right after this procedure.
  • Facelift and tone:  cosmetic acupuncture helps to  resolve face sagging by lifting the facial muscles and making them more toned. With aging and lack of proper skin care, facial muscles begin to sag, especially around the eyes and neck. After a series of acupuncture facelifts, collagen production is stimulated and it solves the problem of sagging.
  • Softens and smoothens the face: with more elastin and collagen, wrinkles disappear, giving a glowy, smooth and soft face.
  • Reduces acne and age spots: Research has shown a potential role of cosmetic acupuncture combined with benzoyl peroxide in reducing sebum secretion, which treats acne.
  • Enhances better skin glow: after the procedure, skin products are better absorbed, resulting in more moisturization and an improved skin complexion.
  • Compared with other treatment modalities for face lifting, cosmetic acupuncture doesn’t cause hyperpigmentation.
  • Increased blood supply to the face is due to the mechanism with which acupuncture works. It results in faster healing of sores and injuries to the face.
  • Better lymphatic drainage ensures that unwanted waste products are drained out for excretion.  It prevents the build-up of free radicals that fasten our aging process.
  • It reduces facial puffiness.
    Cosmetic acupuncture relaxes the jaw muscles and relieves jaw tension.
