How does it work?
Needles cause micro-traumas in the skin stimulating the immune system to to send fibroblasts to the sites. This causes collagen and elastin stores to increase. The dispersal of collagen is also balanced which is why the effect is all over, not just at the site of the needles. From the Chinese medicine point of view much more is going on, the flow of qi and blood is increased, slowing down the aging process everywhere in the body at once. That is why there are systemic improvements.
