Cosmetic acupuncture has a long history in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) of treating skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and signs of aging. Traditionally, TCM has used face & body acupuncture, herbal medicine, topical application of herbs, moxibustion, gua sha, massage, nutrition, and meditation. The modern practice of cosmetic acupuncture also employs natural skincare products and machines such as microcurrent, ultrasound, and galvanic.
