How does the treatment take place?
Facial skin is made up of three layers; the bottom layer is known as subcutaneous layer, the mid layer is known as dermis and the top most layers is known as epidermis. The outermost layer of skin is known as protective layer and is made up of combination of living and dead cells; a waxy substance is also present in the outer layer of the skin known as Keratin. The thickness of this layer varies according to the body parts and when it comes to facial skin it is quite thin. This layer helps in protecting the face from sun damage, drying out, cracking and also in maintaining a constant temperature. This layer needs a lot of care in order to enhance your looks and get a glowing facial complexion. This layer has no direct blood supply. This layer gets fluids from dermis layer.
The dermis layer is thicker than the epidermis. This layer is made up elastic fibers, nerves, blood vessels and collagen. The small blood vessels in this layer become constricted because of tensions, poor nutrition, stress etc. and if the blood flow decreases you would notice change in luster, moisture and resilience of skin. Acupuncture works in this layer and helps in the relaxation and opening of small blood vessels of the face and other part of the body for improving and increasing overall blood circulation. This is done by using pressure technique.
The bottom layer of the skin is made up of adipose tissue, blood vessels and collagen fibers. This layer plays a very important role in regulating proper temperature for maintaining the blood flow at a constant rate and providing a proper shape to the facial features. This treatment needs twelve regular sessions, one per week along with nutritional support. The sessions may also vary from person to person for getting excellent results.
