Acupuncture for skincare—what should you know about this combination? Acupuncture concentrated on one's face is used to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin by promoting blood flow and collagen production. Finely pointed needles are inserted around the jawline, cheeks, eyes, and mouth by a licensed practitioner in a sterile environment. This is not a treatment that you want to try by yourself at home. If you are looking for an at-home treatment that will provide similar benefits, a facial massager or micro-needling beauty gadget might provide similar benefits.
