Sun light makes one feel good and sun tan makes one look good. However exposure to the sun causes most of wrinkles and age spots on the face and skin color obtained from being in the sun speeds up skin aging. Sun exposure damages collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching.
Is there any way to make up to the damage caused by sun exposure? Facial acupuncture is an efficient way to do so. Does it work? Acupuncture on the face stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis and improves blood circulation to help skin repairing. As a result, skin becomes delicate and free of wrinkles again.
