Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Is it true that there is an acupuncture treatment for wrinkles on the market?
A: Yes, you have heard correctly. Acupuncture has shown effectiveness in facial rejuvenation. Adjunctive or stand-alone treatments are used for wrinkle reduction, age line reduction, and general facial muscle tone, health and wellness. Acupuncture is also very effective in post-surgical recovery, especially in facial cosmetic surgery. In addition, many herbal masks and washes are used to augment the treatment. Usual treatment plan is weekly for eight to twelve weeks with substantial reduction of fine age lines and improvement of skin and muscle tone.
