What’s Facial Acupuncture? 

Facial rejuvenation is based on the concepts of Chinese medicine. It includes inserting very thin needles into certain parts of the body and head. This will help stimulate and regulate the own healing response of the body.  

While the focus of facial acupuncture will be aimed towards your face, it also helps in treating the underlying and internal factors that contribute to optimal skin health.
