Common Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Points Used and Their Functions

Facial rejuvenation is a special technique of acupuncture that improves the appearance of the face. Blood and lymphatic circulation is increased, as well as enhancing nerve function, resulting in a reduced appearance of facial discolorations, scars, inflammation, even skin tone and moisture, and a healthier glow. Facial muscles are relaxed, and muscles become firmer and more tone. Even one treatment will improve the appearance of your skin.

Here are some common acupuncture points used with the facial rejuvenation technique. You have a chance to try these points out for your self during a complimentary skincare event, Friday October 2 starting at 5:30pm.
