So you may be asking how does acupuncture do all of this.  Well we use acupuncture needles to stimulate the major muscle groups around the eyes, jaw and forehead to help lift muscles, promote circulation and decrease inflammation. We use tiny dermal needles to create a micro injury within the fine lines on the face, this causes the body to produce collagen in response to the micro injury.  The collagen puffs the fine line out and diminishes its appearance.
