Acupuncture for Acne and Healthier Skin

If you struggle with acne-prone skin, acupuncture may be your solution.

Acupuncture works on the body as a whole work by stimulating certain pressure points that circulate energy, or qi, through the body.

By stimulating points with acupuncture, it may be possible to ease acne symptoms and even the underlying issues that cause them, particularly hormonal imbalances.

Modern-day experts believe that acupuncture works by increasing blood circulation and reducing inflammation.

Acupuncture may offer benefits for several types of acne and other skin conditions,


  • acne rosacea

  • hormonal acne

  • acne scars

  • psoriasis

  • eczema

  • allergies

One major benefit of acupuncture for treating acne is the minor side effects associated with acupuncture treatment.

Forty-three trials involving 3453 patients with acne were studied. The findings of these studies showed that acupoint stimulation therapies combined with other treatments, such as moxibustion, cupping, and Chinese herbs appear to be effective for acne.
