Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation

Chinese facial rejuvenation has been part of the traditional Chinese medicine for many many years. 

 

Initialy, facial acupuncture for skin rejuvenation was used in the courts of the emperor, in order to preserve the vibrant and youthful appearance.

 

In recent years, this method of acupuncture was brought to the west attracting a wide population of patients because the treatment is both internal and external, and lasts for years with no permanent side effects.
