Cosmetic acupuncture is purported to improve skin and act as an anti-aging treatment in part by stimulating the production of collagen (a protein that acts as a major component of your skin). As you age, your skin's inner layer loses collagen and, as a result, becomes less supple and firm.
In general, many people think that acupuncture can only help with pain relief, but the art of healing that has been developed over thousands of years in China is to balance the body, many conditions appear due to imbalances. Acupuncture re-establishes the flow of qi (energy) in the specific channel and can reduce most conditions.
After eight to ten sessions, most people will find their condition has improved by up to 80%, but everyone is different based on the build of the individual. The length of time the condition has been suffered can influence the speed of results and more sessions may be required to address the imbalance.
