Skin Care

A major tenet of acupuncture is that to reflect beauty on the outside, you must be healthy on the inside. Cosmetic acupuncture is a unique method of facial rejuvenation based on this philosophy.

How cosmetic acupuncture works

Cosmetic acupuncture — also known as acupuncture facial rejuvenation or an acupuncture facelift — is built on the same foundation as acupuncture, using many of the same theories. Due to its holistic nature, acupuncture focuses on the body as a whole and on the systems working together. In other words, if one part of the body isn’t working properly, it can affect other parts and cause imbalances.

Here is an example for skin care. A tree, when its leaves have been withered due to whatever reason, if you just try to coloring its leaves and want to make it look good, that way is not good. You have to water the root of tree to nourish, even re-generate, the leaves, and then, its leaves will maintain energy. The same reasoning applies to skin care for human beings. Remember, healthy skin is nourished by qi and blood which are produced from internal organs. So, the most important thing for skin care is to take care of your internal organs (root) and then you can have very good exterior (skin).
