See the Original "".

Abstract

Objectives:

In order to help establish the scientific research methods to prove the effects of facial cosmetic acupuncture, we investigated the trend of facial cosmetic acupuncture study based on the Korean traditional medicine.

Methods:

We researched the papers which were associated with the facial cosmetic acupuncture in Korean journals. The research date was 5th August 2013.

Results:

27 papers about facial cosmetic acupuncture were found. 17 papers were literature research, and 10 papers were clinical research. Almost half of papers were written the years of 2008 and 2009. Most of papers were written in the Journal of Korean Acupuncture & Moxibustion Society.

Conclusions:

We need more systematic research in order to prove the effects of facial cosmetic acupuncture and use extensively.
