Not sure it does: Acupuncture is mainly used for chronic or acute pain. Like many types of treatments, there are those who exaggerate what it can do.

Facial rejuvenation: There is no clinical evidence that supports the use of acupuncture to achieve quick or sustained facial rejuvenation. The relaxation effect of acupuncture can be very beneficial for decreasing the frowns and wrinkles that are evident from facial muscle tension.

It is done.: Although I have not done any cosmetic procedures for my acupuncture patients - there are some practices that perform mainly procedures for this purpose. I do not have personal knowledge of the results - but my guess is that clients wouldn't keep returnging if it wasn't beneficial.
