Research has shown that facial acupuncture increases skin elasticity

Beauty and skin health are important factors as a part of the quality of life in modern society. Cosmetic acupuncture or cosmetic acupuncture or facial cosmetic acupuncture is the use of acupuncture on the head, face, and neck for cosmetic purposes and has been introduced as an intervention for skin rejuvenation for facial wrinkles, facial muscle tone, and elasticity etc. A recent research studied if facial acupuncture has effects on facial elasticity. In the research five sessions of facial acupuncture were given over three weeks: twice a week for the first two weeks, then once a week for the last week, with three to four days between sessions. The result was measured using the Moire topography criteria after treatment compared with baseline before the treatments. Moire topography is an optical measurement that does not require direct contact and allows high-precision visualization of facial shape in three dimensions. Moire topography is used in studies of many facial conditions facial palsy, zygomatic fractures, facial morphology, and facial plastic surgery and facial elasticity. The result has shown that facial cosmetic acupuncture increases the skin elasticity.
