Dermaroller for Cosmetic Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation with Dermaroller – how it works?

Dermaroller is a beauty tool that increases the levels of collagen and elastin in patient skin. When rolling the dermaroller over the skin of the patient, the practitioner produces thousands of micro points into the dermis and the pores open temporarily.

Using a topical anesthetic, the practitioner can make the procedure more comfortable to patient. The skin will initiate a healing process because of those micro points opened by dermaroller and new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced.

It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen, but some patients notice results after the first session! And this process will continue over months with long lasting results.

Dermaroller for Cosmetic Acupuncture


What dermaroller is effective for?

Dermaroller was created in Germany and has been increasingly used as a cosmetic procedure in many countries. It stimulates collagen and elastin production for both men and women. It has been proved to be more effective than laser and surgery for scar reduction, in addition to stretch mark and wrinkle elimination!

Some of the problems dermaroller can treat:

  • Stretch marks
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Wrinkles and anti-aging
  • Ice pick and chickenpox scars
  • Treating or reducing cellulite
  • Enlarged pores
  • Lack of firmnes
  • Age spots & sun damage
  • Under-eye bags
  • Hair loss
  • Hyper pigmentation

Benefits of the dermaroller

  • It causes a 40% improvement in ageing and a 60% improvement in scar reduction in only 5 to 6 treatments!
  • It induces maximum absorption of your wrinkle cream or any anti-aging creams, giving you an ‘instant facelift’.
  • It destroys old skin cells and scar tissue, replacing them with brand new skin cells.
  • Highly effective treatment for surgery scars, burn scars, acne scars, chicken pox scars, pitting of the skin, large pores and much more.
  • Similar results to laser treatment, chemical peels and dermabrasion.
  • Remove loose skin, lines and wrinkles on the face.
  • Improve blood supply to remove cellulite.
  • Improve thinning hair and hair loss/alopecia.
  • The dermaroller lessens dimpling of the skin, improves skin colour and texture of aged skin.

Weight loss with acupuncture

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for more than 2,000 years. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a field of acupuncture used earlier by the Chinese Empress and Emperor’s concubines in Sung Dynasty (960AD – 1270AD). It promotes not only cosmetic benefits but also the health of the patient as a whole.

Cosmetic acupuncture is somewhat a non-invasive procedure and has really impressive results – improving your health as well as treating your beauty demands. Healthy ‘side effects’ include better quality sleep, less anxiety and good digestion – critical factors in weight loss.


Researches guarantee the benefits of acupuncture to lose weight

  • In 2003, The Journal of Medical Acupuncture published a study showing that those participants that received acupuncture treatment lost more than three times more weight than the control group.
  • In 1998, a research of the University of Adelaide pointed that 95% of the participants receiving electro-stimulation on acupuncture points reported appetite suppression. The acupuncture group was more likely to experience a reduced appetite and to lose weight than the control group.


How does acupuncture works in weight loss?

Acupuncture decreases appetite and food intake reducing the calorie consumption. In addition to this, it increases the metabolic rate of the body and stimulates the release of endorphins, a hormone that helps to reduce the body fat and insulin levels.  Endorphins also have a relaxing effect, decreasing stress and anxiety levels.

You should combine acupuncture with Chinese traditional herbs in order to get more effective results. The number of acupuncture sessions varies. You can see more about those information and Acupuncture for Obesity and Acupuncture to lose weight in this video below.
