A Guide to Facial Acupuncture

There are many options available – both on the market and in treatment offices – for those looking to make cosmetic improvements in the facial area. Many trendy options provide a chemically-based and highly superficial “quick fix” – but at what internal cost?

This conversation between licensed Acupuncturists Dr. Lamya Kamel, L.Ac, Dipl. OM, MSTOM, DAOM and Dr. Helena Para, L.Ac, DACM, MSTOM explores how Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture safely benefits the skin naturally, addressing both aging effects as well as overall skin health. At a glance, this treatment can benefit common topical concerns caused by acne, premature aging, uneven skin tone, and scarring. Going beyond these external benefits, Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture works to reduce inflammation, promote collagen production and increased blood flow, and can even reduce anxiety and jaw tension! As with all acupuncture treatments, this treatment enhances the body’s ability to heal and balance from within.
