Cosmetic Acupuncture has been performed for thousands of years in China. As early as the Sung Dynasty (960AD-1270AD) Cosmetic Acupuncture was performed on the Empress and Emperor’s concubines.
A study in The Journal of Chinese Medicine, Number 72, June 2003, by Radha Thambirajah, concluded that the effects of Cosmetic Acupuncture were striking and long-lasting.
A 1996 study in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that of the 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included more delicate skin, improved elasticity of the skin, improvement in skin tone and overall rejuvenation.
