Field Profession: Microneedling for Facial Rejuvenation
Although most of us associate acupuncture with medicine and illness, some historians say acupuncture has its roots in cosmetic procedures. It should be no surprise that ancient Chinese empresses and emperors cared deeply about a youthful appearance as they were symbols of strength, longevity, and even immortality.
Physicians from various dynasties created and documented numerous techniques which laid the groundwork for how this method is practiced today. In 1905, the first microneedling procedure was devised by a German dermatologist named Ernst Kromayer who had the idea to attach a motor to dental burs to successfully treat scars, birthmarks, and skin discoloration. The procedure was since refined and perfected by American cosmetic surgeon Dr. Desmond Fernandes in 1995 for treating wrinkles.
Combined with modern research and modern tools, this traditional and natural form of facial rejuvenation has been gaining attention in recent years. Research has shown that results can last 3-5 years in some patients. It is safe, gentle, effective, and non-surgical. Woodland Hills Cosmetic Acupuncture is excited to bring these treatments to you!
