In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), facial acupuncture is regarded as an effective way to boost skin’s radiance and health.
The fine needles help to stimulate various acupoints on the face and related acupoints on the body to improve blood circulation.
Eu Yan Sang’s TCM Facial Acupuncture treatment is designed to address a variety of skin and beauty concerns – such as acne, wrinkles, skin pigmentation, dullness and puffiness – in a safe and gentle manner. The treatment also works to improve the body’s constitution.
This is because in TCM, one’s appearance indicates the state of his or her physical health. For instance, puffiness around the eye area may be due to “kidney deficiency”, while dark spots on the face may be due to stagnation of qi (energy) and blood.
According to Eu Yan Sang, there are no side effects other than occasional mild bruising, which typically disappears after a week.
A recommended treatment plan typically consists of 12 sessions, done once or twice a week. Herbal medication may be prescribed to complement the acupuncture treatment.
