Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine involving thin needles inserted into the body at acupuncture points. It can be associated with the application of heat, pressure, or laser light to these same points. Acupuncture is commonly used for pain relief, though it is also used for a wide range of other conditions. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture can correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin.

Cosmetic acupuncture also stimulates the production of collagen, which gives skin a tight, firm look. “ A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: the skin became delicate, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation."
