It is the natural phenomenon that the once looking beautiful and youthful face starts degenerating with time. This is due to the stress, pollution and various toxins that cause considerable change in the body. This causes appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, loose skin and other ageing effects, although this is an unavoidable fact but sometimes this occurs in an early age.

Thankfully cosmetic acupuncture is one such treatment which is completely natural and do not use any harmful medicines. Also known as acupuncture facelift or facial rejuvenation, it works on the principle of the acupuncture that is inserting needles in certain points in the body. These points lie along the meridians which are energy pathways all along the body. In cosmetic acupuncture needles are inserted in meridians which carry energy and blood to the face tissues and bones. Some of these meridians lie on cheeks, forehead, ears, chin etc.
When needles are inserted in facial muscles, disrupted path of energy is cleared which enhances smooth flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients in the body. There is no pain but just a tingling sensation is felt when needles are inserted. This then helps in increasing the tone of muscles, tightens the loose skin, removes wrinkles and provides a healthy complexion to skin. If needles are inserted superficially then collagen fiber production is increased which provide elasticity to the skin. This elasticity make a person look younger and healthy. Moreover it also helps in reducing the pain in facial muscles by increasing the movement of stiff and tensed muscles.
